Statement of Faith

We are called by God to partner with everyone He brings to us so that we might bring the very presence of Jesus Christ to the hurting and lost. Understanding this, we are devoted to work side by side with all people who are committed to helping others attain truth, love, and self-control. We believe that people will attain truth, love, and self-control through the power and love of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we want everyone we work with to understand our core beliefs.

  • We believe in one eternal God who has revealed Himself in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Mt. 28:19)
  • We believe the Bible is the true and inspired Word of God, and that it is without error in all that it affirms. We believe God's Word is our one authority for the practice of life and faith. (Is. 55:11; 2 Tim. 3:16)
  • We believe that the historical Jesus of Nazareth is the Lord and Savior of all humanity and that He is fully God and fully man. We believe Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary and that He lived a perfect and sinless life. We believe He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead to pay for our sins and give us eternal life and that He now sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven. (Mt. 1:18; John 1:1, 14; Heb. 9:11-15)
  • We believe there is only one Name given under heaven and earth by which people might be saved, and that Jesus Christ is the one way to have a relationship with the God of eternity. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)
  • We believe God has called us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with all people. We believe every person must understand the following truths: eternal life is a free gift of grace, all people are sinners in need of grace, God is loving but He is also just and will punish sin, therefore, God sent Jesus Christ into creation to take upon himself the punishment for our sin, and that all who believe in Jesus Christ with their whole heart and mind and confess their faith in him will be saved. (Matt. 28:19-20; Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 John 4:8; Ex. 34:7; John 6:47)
  • We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to change lives. The Holy Spirit comes to guide, sanctify, convict, and grow each believer in Christ's likeness and to lead the lost into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. (John 15:26-27; 16:8-11)
  • We believe in the power of prayer. We believe God has called us in prayer to intercede for our communities, our churches, our leaders, and our world. (Gen. 18:16-33; 1 Thess. 5:17; James 5:16)
  • We believe Jesus Christ established the Church so that through it He might proclaim the love of God to all the peoples of the earth. We exist to serve the Church in her mission to share the love of God. We believe that all Christians are called by God to be active participants in a local church by sharing in the mission of Jesus Christ in that church and participating in the fellowship of believers. (Gen. 12:1-3; Eph. 4:11-16)
  • We believe God has called us to equip believers in Jesus Christ to disciple all people and that we have a responsibility to work for justice and reconciliation in all aspects of our community. (Mt. 25:31-46)
  • We believe the return of Jesus Christ is imminent, and therefore, every Christian should resolutely determine to be about the work of the Kingdom of God. (Matt. 24:22-24)
