Our Core Values

We value the Word of God as our final authority, being dedicated to God, being culturally relevant, being faithful stewards, striving for excellence and reaching out into the community.

We Believe:

  • Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (I Corinthians 15:1-8)
  • The Bible is the inspired word of God–a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (II Timothy 3:16)
  • Every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fall short of His glory. (Romans 3:23)
  • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)
  • Those accepting Christ should repent of their sins, confess their faith and be baptized unto Him. (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38)
  • The church is the body of Christ on earth empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to love all people and reach out with the message of Christ. (Luke 10:25-37; Ephesians 4:1-16)
  • The church should meet together regularly to worship God, remember Christ’s sacrifice, study His word and encourage one another. (Acts 2:46-47, I Corinthians 11:23-30; Hebrews 10:25)
  • Jesus Christ will one day call His children home where we will live with The Lord eternally. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
