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.

Commonly-Requested Clarifications

Trinity/Godhead

Father, Son, Holy Spirit
We believe in the active existence of the God-head as we fulfill Jesus' command to, "Go into all the world, making disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." - Matthew 28:19

Holy Scriptures

Inspired Word of God
We believe, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,  so that the servant of God  may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Jesus praying

Unity

Jesus' Prayer for the Church
“I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me." - John 17:20-21

We also practice Weekly Communion and Believer's Baptism.

Every week, we offer any who would come to the Lord's table an opportunity to take communion, pray with our elders/leaders, and respond to God through belief, confession, repentance, prayer, or baptism.
