Our Mission

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

How We Make Disciples

As a covenant community, we live out our mission by creating environments where people are invited to:

Know Christ through worship (invited into his presence and a relationship with Christ)

Grow in Christ through Discipleship Groups and Sunday school classes while becoming committed followers of His.

Serve Christ by using our skills, gifts, and passion to put our faith into action within and beyond the walls of our church.

Share Christ with others through a willingness to tell our story to others of what Jesus has done for us.

What We Believe

God is the one living and true Creator and Ruler of the creation. God has revealed Himself in three ways: as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus is the Son of God, the second member of the Trinity. He was born of the Virgin Mary, truly God and truly man, who for us and for our salvation came down from heaven. He paid the price for the sins of all believers when He died on the cross. Three days later, God raised Him from the dead. Now He lives and reigns with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Trinity. He is the presence of God living in the lives of believers in Jesus. He provides power for Christian living, understanding the scriptures, and empowerment for people to continue the ministry of Jesus today.

Salvation is God's gift to us. The only sure way of salvation is to confess one's sin and to trust in Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord.

His Return will happen one day as Jesus will come again to earth in triumph. He will receive all believers into His eternal Kingdom and will judge the living and the dead.

The Bible was inspired by God and contains all things necessary for salvation. When read under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Bible is our true rule and guide for faith and practice.
