Our goal is to LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
VALUE #1: FAITH
We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet the farm risk takers. We will never insult God with small thinking or safe living. (Hebrews 11:6; Hebrews 11:1)
VALUE #2: SERVICE
We are not spiritual consumers; we are spiritual contributors. The church does not exist for us. We are the church, and we exist for the world. (Romans 12:6-8; Matthew 5:14-16)
VALUE #3: GENEROSITY
We will lead the way with irrational generosity. We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35; 2 Corinthians 8:1-7; Isaiah 32:8; Acts 4:33-34)
VALUE #4: EVANGELISM
We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ. To reach people no one is reaching, we will do things no one is doing. (Mark 2:17; Mark 2:1-5)
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error in its original writing.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became separated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally depraved and incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins, therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin.
We believe that the church is the universal body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ.
