OUR BELIEFS

OUR BELIEFS

GRACE ALONE. FAITH ALONE. GOD’S WORD ALONE.

We believe that men, women, and children are rescued from the effects of sin purely by the undeserved mercy of God; and that through faith–a relationship of dependence upon Jesus that God Himself gives us–forgiveness and more become ours. Lastly, God’s Word stands over us as ultimate. In it He gives us the rule and norm for all belief and through it makes us aware of sin, fills us with faith in Jesus, and guides us in faith-filled living.

CORE VALUES

CORE VALUES

WORSHIP. CONNECT. SERVE.

Our Core Values answer the “why” question? Why are we doing this? Because we want to make disciples who reflect the character, life, and mission of Jesus. As we look at the Gospels we see Jesus dwelling in three different relationships: with the Father (worship), with the disciples (connect) and with the world (serve).

DISCIPLESHIP

DISCIPLESHIP

WHAT IS A DISCIPLING CULTURE?

We were created to reflect the life, character, and mission of Jesus. To have compassion like he had compassion. To heal like he healed. To love, care, and speak with authority into peoples’ lives like he did.
