THREE CORE BELIEFS and 10 BASIC STEPS

THREE CORE BELIEFS ... all centering around Jesus.

Everything we believe centers around Jesus. We believe that the Triune God (Father, Spirit and Son):

1. Created everything, including us to be human, relational, creative, and free.

2. Tried to reveal clarity and understanding when things got distorted and misrepresented.

3.  Worked out a way for us to find our way back to Him and be in life-giving community.
