WHAT WE BELIEVE
There are some that may tell you that they spend enough personal time with God and don't need a church. Fellowship is an integral part of the life of a maturing Christian. Paul writes in Romans 1:12 that we are to be mutually encouraged by each other's faith. That's difficult to do when we do not spend time together.
Disciple. Jesus had twelve of them. Ringing a bell? Webster's defines a disciple in this way: "Someone who believes and helps to spread the doctrine of another." True Christ-followers not only believe but also also share God's grace and longs to help others grow in a vibrant relationship with Jesus.
God placed us on earth for His pleasure. We were created to worship our Creator. He didn't need us. He wanted us... and still does. Our best gift to Him is to offer our lives as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to Him.
We want to be a church that loves and serves our community and the kingdom of God. We are involved in various outreach projects in hopes to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
The Bible is clear that we are to share the love of Christ with others. We believe it is a foundational element of our existence - to bring others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
