Mission

“To Journey with God in making authentic followers of Jesus- through genuine relationships.”

 

Matthew 28:18-20

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

Vision

To be a church that can be real with God, ourselves, and others while serving our community and abroad.

 

Luke 10:27

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

 

Model

Small groups – “Doing Life with Other’s, as we do Life with God”

 

Acts 2: 42-47

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

 

Horizontal Rule

 

 

 

The Word of God.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 

The Trinity.

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

 

God the Father.

We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

 

Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings.  We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.

 

The Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who have surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ.  We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.

 

Regeneration.

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and, therefore are, separated from God.  We believe that those who surrender their lives and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are restored to unity with God.

 

The Church. We believe in the universal Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members.  We believe in the local Church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship.  We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local Church the primary task of giving the message of Jesus Christ to the world.

 

Christian Conduct.

We believe that Christians should live to bring honor to God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be an example to others; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek and help others become spiritually mature in Christ.

 

The Ordinances.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local Church:  baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a follower of Jesus Christ in water into the name of the triune God.  We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death.  We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of Jesus Christ.

 

Religious Liberty.

We believe that every human being has direct relations with God, and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, church and state must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other.

 

Church Cooperation.

We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another, across denomination.

 

The Last Things.

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and establishment of His Kingdom.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, and eternity either in communion with God or forever separated from Him.
