  • creative, passionate, god-centered worship arts

    We believe God is seeking worshipers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). Our worship service is designed to honor God first and foremost, and yet we are not afraid to utilize various creative aspects within our worship arts that assist us in effectively communicating the Gospel message to seekers.

    Psalm 96:1-4

  • empowering people to serve

    We believe that a key component to spiritual growth involves using one's spiritual gift(s) to serve others for the purpose of reaching people for Christ. Since this is critical to the discipleship process, and something Jesus modeled and commands, we equip and encourage people to embrace the privilege of serving others. (Matthew 20:26b-28).

    Romans 12:10

  • strong next generation ministries

    It is our desire to come alongside of parents to aid them in the spiritual upbringing of their children. Children and youth are a key part of the church today, and represent the future of the church. Therefore, we invest heavily in having a strong, Dynamic children's and youth ministry, led by passionate leaders, in order to point the next generation to a life rooted in Christ.

    Luke 18:16-17

    Deuteronomy 6:6-7

  • lifegroup model of ministry

    We believe life change happens in the context of relationships. Jesus modelled it with his 12 disciples and the early church built on his example. So we strive to be a church OF reproducing LifeGroups not a church WITH LifeGroups. We practice a continuous multiplication of LifeGroups that meet the reals needs of people and where the loving and healing power of fellowship is experienced.

    Acts 2:46-47

  • generosity

    We believe we are blessed to be a blessing to others. We strive to practice generosity as individuals and as the church. And we seek to continue to grow in becoming more and more generous we give our time, treasure, and talents to advance God's Kingdom and bless others.

What we believe

  • God

    God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22 Psalm 90:2 Matthew 28:19 I Peter 1:2 II Corinthians 13:14

  • Man

    Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God's creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God. Genesis 1:27 Psalm 8:3-6 Isaiah 53:6a Romans 3:23 Isaiah 59:1-2

  • Eternity

    Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. John 3:16 I John 2:25; 5:11-13 Romans 6:23 Revelation 20:15

  • Jesus Christ

    Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sines of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Matthew 1:22-23 Isaiah 9:6 John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 Hebrews 4:14-15 I Corinthians 15:3-4 Romans 1:3-4 Acts 1:9-11 I Timothy 6:14-15 Titus 2:13

  • salvation

    Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23 Ephesians 2:8-9 John 14:6; 1:12 Titus 3:5 Galatians 3:26 Romans 5:1

  • eternal security

    Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. John 10:29 II Timothy 1:12 Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14 I Peter 1:3-5

  • The Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. II Corinthians 3:17 John 16:7-13; 14:16-17 Acts 1:8 I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16 Ephesians 1:13 Galatians 5:25 Ephesians 5:18

  • the bible

    The Bible is God's Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.  II Timothy 3:16 II Peter 1:20-21 II Timothy 1:13 Psalm 119:105,160; 12:6 Proverbs 30:5
