OUR VISION

We are a church who welcomes people from all backgrounds, regardless of their failures or successes in life. Our message is one of second chances, acceptance, hope, and life. We are a family where each person matters because we all matter to God.

Simply put, we are a church where people are loved, valued, and respected; truth is taught with relevance; worship is heart-felt and draws us closer to God; and compassion is shown for those in need.  We'd love to come alongside you in your walk with Christ.

OUR BELIEFS

+ GOD

A holy (without sin), spiritual being, all knowing, everywhere present, eternally existent in three distinct personalities – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – one God (Exodus 3:14-15, John 4:24, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-2).

+ JESUS CHRIST

Jesus became “God in the flesh.” He was born through the miracle of a virgin birth, lived a sinless life, was crucified and died a physical death as atonement for our sins, and was physically resurrected from the grave. (Matthew 1:18-25, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8) He will return in bodily form as Lord of the universe, to gather his followers and judge those who have rejected him (Acts 1:9-11, Hebrews 9:27-28).The Holy Spirit Lives within those who believe in Jesus Christ as

+ THE HOLY SPIRIT

Lives within those who believe in Jesus Christ as Comforter and Advocate, and helps us become more like Jesus in thought, word, actions and character (John 16:5-15).

+ SIN

Men and women were created in the image of God but are now separated from God by sin (Romans 5:12-21).

+ SALVATION

Faith (belief and trust) in Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross is the only way to be reconciled with God (Acts 4:8-12). Salvation cannot be earned; it is offered through Jesus based on grace, not merit. What we couldn’t do for ourselves (reconcile with God), Jesus did through his death on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9). God lovingly offers salvation to every person, and every person has the freedom to accept or reject this gift at any time (John 3:16-18). Faith requires repentance (conforming our lifestyle to Christ’s), and results in obedience. Baptism by immersion demonstrates a pledge of our willingness to live for Him (Acts 8:26-38, Romans 6:1-4).

+ BAPTISM

We believe that full immersion under water is the prescribed mode of baptism as indicated by Jesus' own example, command, and the meaning of the original Greek word "baptizo" = to immerse, dip, or dunk (Mark 1:9-10; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4).

+ THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is the inspired, written Word of God and the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:14-16).

+ THE CHURCH

The Church of Jesus Christ is not limited to any one institution or denomination; it consists of all who have trusted Jesus Christ for redemption of their sins. Christ's Church is therefore but one part of the greater Church (1 Corinthians 12:12-17).
