Who we are


Our Mission

We exist to lead people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. 

We seek environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue a relationship with God, a community with the Church, and influence with the world.


Because we believe it's all about Jesus, We strive to exalt Jesus.
Because we believe growing people change, We strive to teach the Word.
Because we believe you can't do life alone, We strive to grow in community.
Because we believe saved people serve people, We strive to serve one another.
Because we believe followers live on a mission, We strive to reach the world.





We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of the universe. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Genesis 1:1 | Matthew 6:9 | Matthew 28:19


We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God. Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature without sin. His substitutionary death on the cross made provision for the redemption of sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body, appeared to His disciples, ascended to heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God. 
John 1:1-18, 29 | I Corinthians 15:1-8 | II Corinthians 5:19-21 | Philippians 2:5-11



Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
John 3:3-21, 36 | Romans 3:23-25Romans 5:8-10


We believe man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Since the Fall, humanity now inherits a nature inclined toward sin. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. 
Genesis 1:26-30 Ephesians 2:1-22Romans 5:12



We believe the Holy Spirit Is the Spirit of God, Fully Divine. He inspired holy men to write the scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand the truth. He convicts men of sin, righteousness and judgment. He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration whereby He baptizes every believer into the body of Christ.
Acts 1:8 | I Corinthians 2:10-14 | 2 Peter 1:21



We believe the Bible was written by divinely inspired men, and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is divine instruction with God as its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any error. All Scripture is totally true, trustworthy, and a testimony to Christ.
II Timothy 3:15-17 II Peter 1:19-21
