Love Jesus. Love People. Impact Our World.
We envision a church that follows Jesus so passionately and authentically that we impact our community and our world by engaging them with the hope, love and joy only found in a transformational relationship with Jesus.
The good news about Jesus is at the center of what we believe, it drives our worship and influences our every-day lives. In short, it is everything to us.
Holy Spirit Led:
We envision a church that is both gifted and led by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Called together to be encouraged, unified, filled with peace, joy and love as well as challenged and trained through sound biblical teaching.
In this way we will be inwardly united, outwardly focused, and spiritually mature such that we impact our neighborhoods, workplaces and spheres of influence for the sake of the gospel.
We envision a church fully engaged in thankful and heartfelt praise and worship which glorifies God as we enjoy him now and forever. Through powerful songs of faith and hope we will exalt, celebrate and proclaim a risen Christ and place our affections on him above all else.
Unity In Christ:
We envision a church that welcomes people from all walks of life, races and cultures to find hope, freedom and satisfaction in Jesus as the highest authority and treasure. Together we will advance his Kingdom in our community and around the world as we discover who God has made us to be, and how he has given us spiritual gifts to build up his church and impact our world.
We envision a church full of people so filled with compassion that others are drawn from impossible situations into a loving and friendly community of hope that is full of grace, where answers and forgiveness can be found.
We envision being a church that is a foretaste of the coming Kingdom of God, which will be marked by justice, peace, mercy, love and the presence of God himself. Our desire is to be marked by his goodness and his word not by religion or man’s tradition.
We envision a church that lives in real and authentic community with one another. Loving, serving, praying and living with each other outside the walls of the building we gather in to worship on Sunday morning. We accomplish this by embracing small groups and classes where friendships, accountability and mission can be fleshed out in real, personal and practical ways.
We envision a church that lives generously and sacrificially because we worship a generous and sacrificial God. Our generosity will be an overflow and reflection of the gospel in our lives as we sacrificially give of our talents, time and resources in order that our neighborhoods and world would be changed by our generosity and the gospel message that drives it.
We envision a church where success is measured by multiplying disciples, planting churches, and our engagement in local, regional and global mission, rather than by numbers or finances.
We believe in one God, triune in person-hood and nature-Father, Son and Spirit. We believe He is sovereign, loving, good, just, merciful and full of grace.
We believe the Gospel is the good news of what God has graciously accomplished for sinners through the sinless life, sacrificial death, and bodily resurrection of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. The Gospel is namely our forgiveness from sin and complete justification before God. It is also the foundation for our confidence in the ultimate triumph of God’s kingdom, and the consummation of His purpose for all creation in the new heavens and new earth.
We believe the Gospel is centered in Christ, is the foundation for the life of the Church, and is our only hope for eternal life. This Gospel is proclaimed because Christ’s penal substitutionary death and bodily resurrection are central to our message.
This Gospel is the only means by which people are saved, and also the truth and power by which people are sanctified. It is the truth of the Gospel that enables us to genuinely and joyfully do what is pleasing to God and to grow in progressive conformity to the image of Christ. The salvation offered in this Gospel message is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone; no ordinance, ritual, work, or any other activity on the part of man is required in order to be saved.
We believe that the Bible is God’s self-revelation to us and is both accurate and without error and as such is our final authority on all matters as followers of Jesus and His Way.
We believe that the church is God’s chosen vehicle to reach our community and world with the love, grace and merciful message of a crucified and resurrected Christ who longs for and demands the affections of His people.
We believe that we are created as worshipers. We desire to worship God in a way that is both accurate and authentic both in our personal lives and when we gather as a church body.
We believe that the Christian life is designed to be lived in community. As such we are committed to live life in smaller groups with other believers within the greater body for the purpose of encouragement, friendship, correction, accountability, prayer and shared mission.
