We are a community that is passionate about Jesus and pursuing the presence of God. We believe that one encounter with God can change everything. Out of that place of encountering Him we are a church that Empowers people to Engage our city and region to see transformation and the love and power of God release all around us.
Honor is not expected, it is given. We honor people because we are honorable, not because they 'earned' it.
We cannot do this without God, nor do we want to. Nothing happens apart from prayer and we believe with Him, nothing is impossible.
We are never impressed with ourselves. No task is beneath us. Our standard for serving is Jesus.
Jesus said to love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and to love others like ourselves.
God is endlessly creative and we partner with Him to push the envelope. We want to be at the forefront of innovation in all that we do.
We take responsibility for our lives and the mission of this ministry. It's not someone else's job, it is mine.
God is worth my best and so are His people. My work is an act of worship, therefore it will always cost me something and be of value.
We are radically generous because we serve a radically generous God.
We are committed to holding Scripture as the final authority in all matters. We study the Word to know what God says and Who He is, not out of obligation, but because of relationship.
It's not numbers, it's not followers. We can only measure success by eternity. We long to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant". There is no other measure of success for us.
Your life will bear fruit whenplanted in the right soil.
Scripture is the final authority and the only source of Truth.
We were created to worship, and in His presence we are most fulfilled.
Our life was meant to be lived alongside others. Community is the grace that propels a blessed life.
These are the foundational beliefs we'll always hold on to as a church.
There is only one true God Who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man".
We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repentance, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy's sin, lies, sickness and torment.
The church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His Kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
