GospeL Focused

The "gospel" simply means "good news." It is good news in response to bad news. The bad news is that we have sinned against God and deserve his judgment. The good news is the story of grace- how God saves sinners through Jesus Christ. That truth should permeate everything we do.

Christ Centered

The gospel is a story about a person. Jesus Christ lived, died, and was resurrected to rescue us from our sin. We don’t deserve God’s kindness, but because of Christ we can have peace with God. We never go beyond Christ and his story; we only become more aware of the grace He offers.

Mission Minded

All followers of Jesus Christ are to be on a mission. The mission is to tell the gospel story about Jesus so that others can find life in him. The story is to be told everywhere- across the street and across the world. When we are aware of all that Christ became for us in the gospel, we joyfully explain the grace of God shown to us through Jesus.

  • God Speaks

    We believe that God wrote the Bible, through men, without error.
  • God is
    We believe that God the Father is the first person of the eternal, triune, God.
  • God Comes

    We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the eternal, triune God who became a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, and physically rose from the grave to redeem sinful humanity.
  • God Draws

    We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the the eternal, triune God; that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent in salvation, birthing all christians into the kingdom of God at conversion, thereby indwelling and sealing them until the day of Jesus' return.
  • God's creation

    We believe that God created all humans in his image; He created them uniquely, male and female.
  • Man's Need

    We believe that all humans are sinful and in need of salvation. Salvation is the gift of God, brought to humanity by grace alone, and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christians are kept by God's power, forever.
  • God's Church

    We believe that the church is a spiritual organism made up of all believers everywhere for all time.
  • History has an end point

    We believe that Jesus is returning to earth to judge all people and to rule and reign with His saints forever.
