We are a community of regular people living out God's extraordinary story the way Jesus showed us.
We seek to live out God’s story through four pursuits
THE PRESENCE OF GOD
We pursue the tangible and personal presence of God, individually and together, through a culture of prayer and worship rooted in God’s Word.
THE FORMATION OF PEOPLE
We pursue deep change through transformational discipleship drawn from the example of Jesus so that we become whole, healed, and flourish in a secure, God-given identity.
We pursue belonging to and participating in a loving, formative, and diverse community unified around Jesus.
NEIGHBORHOODS TO NATIONS
We pursue joining God’s restorative work, locally and globally, by generously using all that God has given us for His glory and the good of others so that people might be saved and live out God’s Story.
Whether you’re interested in attending a service with us or attend an event at a campus, we are looking forward to welcoming you into our home.
What we Believe
FULL STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
God is the creator and ruler of the universe, He eternally exists in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are co-equal and are one God (trinity). He is constantly operating throughout history to fulfill His redemptive purposes.
Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:17; Matthew 28:18-19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 4:6; Exodus 3:14; Colossians 2:9; Acts 5:3-4
God the Son became a man in the person Jesus Christ, was without sin and died for humanity’s sins, rose physically from the dead and will come again to earth to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
John 1:1,14; 1 Peter 2:24; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Revelation 22:20
God is present in the world through the Holy Spirit to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit also lives in Christians after salvation, guiding believers in understanding and applying spiritual truth, as well as providing power to lead a life of Christ-like character and bear fruit to the glory of the Father.
Acts 1:8, 2:38; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16, 6:19; John 14:26
People are made in the image of God to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin which separates us from Him.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2
All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which makes each of us in need of salvation. The good news of the gospel is that salvation is a free gift out of God’s grace to us and cannot be earned nor is it deserved. That gift is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ and accept the perfect and sufficient work of the cross which paid for our sins.
Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16
Spiritual gifts are available for all times, however, God in His sovereignty gives gifts on whom He will and must be practiced according to the principles found in the Bible.
Romans 12:3-8; I Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 4:11-16; I Peter 4:10-11
We were created in the image of God but due to sin are all in need of salvation. Those who accept the free gift of salvation will have ever lasting life in fellowship with God in Heaven. Those who have not accepted this gift, will be eternally separated from God.
Genesis 1:27; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Romans 10:9
We observe communion as an opportunity to remember the deity, humanity, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This opportunity, which is a culmination of our celebration and worship, is provided for all believers following the precedent of the early church who assembled every first day of the week and shared in this remembrance.
Acts 2:42, 20:7; I Corinthians 11:23-29
We believe the scriptures are God’s inspired word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and authority for Christian beliefs and living.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
THE SECOND COMING
The second coming is a subject of many differing opinions. It is enough that Jesus will return to this earth to gather His church at a time when no one knows.
Matthew 24:36; I Thessalonians 4:13-5:2; John 14:3
STEWARDSHIP AND GIVING
The Bible teaches that all we have (time, talent, income) comes from God and belongs to God. He has given it to us, and we are to be good stewards, or managers, of it. The church is supported by the members who are faithful stewards. A part of being a good steward is giving back to God the first part of our income for the work of the local church.
1 Chronicles 29:16; Psalm 24:1; 1 Corinthians 10:6; 1 Corinthians 16:2
