As a nondenominational and independent congregation, we are able to offer a distinctive approach to life with God that includes the following:
These beliefs are at the heart of living in an intimate relationship with God and this is the basis of what we believe.
God — There is one God, eternally expressing Himself as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8, Ephesians 1:13-14)
Humanity — God created human beings in His image for living in an intimate relationship with Him. Through our sin, though, we are separated from an intimate relationship with God. (Acts 17:24-28, Isaiah 59:1-2)
Salvation — God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to offer His righteous life as payment for our sin. Salvation is a gift of God received through faith. Our faith is publicly expressed through repentance, confession, and baptism. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8, Romans 1:16-17; 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9, John 3:16, Acts 2:38) The repentant believer is given the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2: 38ff)
Transformation — God not only wants to save us, He wants to transform us into a new person that is most like the image of His Son. Transformation is initiated by salvation, sustained by God’s grace, and gathers momentum as our will is brought in ever-increasing alignment with God’s will. (Philippians 2:12, Romans 12:1-2)
The Church — The church is a fellowship of believers who join as the life and body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to reach those separated from God and mature those who have been restored to God through Christ. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
The Bible — The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and therefore the final authority in our understanding of God and life. Its purpose is to show us God who takes us to Jesus, His Son and lives life with us. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
Eternity — Christ will one day return, final judgment will be delivered, the image of God will be completely restored within us, and we will reign with Christ forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1 John 3:2)
God offers us an abundant life. You will learn here how to live as God intended you to live in the good times and bad times. Join us as we journey together and enjoy all the blessings God has given us and continue the redeeming, healing, and teaching work of Jesus.
