What We Believe

Learn about what we believe.

Bible

We believe God has chosen to tell humanity who He is, who we are, and who we are to be by His Word. We take the Bible seriously as it shows us the truth about Jesus, what He has done for us, and how we are to be like him. We base our commitment to the Bible on 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

Jesus

We believe a personal relationship is essential for every life. Jesus communicated one consistent message throughout His ministry; that we are to turn from our own way of living and turn to believing in who He is to gain the life God intended us to have from the very beginning. We all have a choice to make about who Jesus is. Is Jesus the Savior of the world or not? We need to have a face to face encounter like that of John 4:39-42. To learn more about Jesus click here.

Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit of God is a gift to those that believe in Jesus and that we continually grow in God by the Holy Spirit. By the power of the Holy Spirit we can grow in the character of God like that of Galations 5: 22-25.

Love God & People

We believe the Great Commandment to love God with all we are and to love others as we would love ourself is the foundation to how we express our relationship with Jesus. The true test of a new life lived in Jesus is how we treat God and others. How much we love God is seen by how we serve others and how we serve others is motivated by how much we love God. That is why Jesus said the greatest rule was to love God and people in Matthew 22: 34-40. 

Go & Do

We believe that Jesus, who has been given all authority in heaven and earth, has told us to go and share His message (Matthew 28:18-20). This task is not optional for those that have life in Jesus. It is an obligation to Him.
