We exist to help connect people to God and each other, commit to His Kingdom and the local church, and be carriers of His love to the city and world!


Our Standard - The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God and the product of God-appointed men who spoke and wrote as they were moved upon by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct.

(2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)

God - The Godhead

We believe our God is One, but manifested in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

(Philippians 2:6, John 14:28, John 16:28, John 1:14, John 1:1, John 1:18, John 15:26)

Our Need - Man's Fall and Redemption

We believe everyone is a created being; made in the likeness and image of God. Through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world, and death was the result. Therefore, everyone is spiritually dead and separated from God. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent to give His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore (anyone) back to God by providing us with salvation.

Eternal Life - Being Born of the Spirit

We believe a person’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. In order to be saved and receive eternal life, Jesus said every person (any and all, no one is left out of this opportunity) must be born again. The New Birth is necessary to everyone, and when experienced, produces eternal life.

(2 Corinthians 7:10, 1 John 5:12, John 3:3-5, John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10)

AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING!

  • Going Public - Water Baptism | (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12, Acts 8:36-39)
  • Divine Power - Being Filled with the Spirit | (Matt. 3:11, John 14:16,17, Acts 1:8, 2:4,38, 19:1-7, Eph 5:18)
  • Sanctification - Real Growth and godly Fruit | (Hebrews 12:14, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, 2 Peter 3:18, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Philippians 3:12-14, 1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • Divine Healing | (John 10:10, Psalm 103:3, Mark 16:18, James 5:14-25, 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:4-5)

End Times - The Return Of Jesus Christ

We believe in the physical, bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe His coming is imminent. When He comes, those who have died and were born again (dead in Christ) will rise first, then those who are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds (what we refer to as the Rapture), to meet the Lord in the air. After this rapture event, we believe the Tribulation, a period of 7 years, will take place on earth. Following the Tribulation, Jesus shall return to the Earth as King of kings, the Lord of lords. Believers will return with Him and will reign with Christ on earth for a thousand years during what is known as the Millennial Reign of Christ.(Matthew 24:14, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, Revelation 20:6)
