God delights in us and desires to manifest His presence among us. As we behold Him, we are moved to praise joyfully and worship deeply. The more we encounter Him, the more we are aware of His Spirit in us and our calling to carry this transformational power to others. God desires to make Himself known, and we will let Him. Psalm 27:4; Psalm 65:4; Ephesians 1:4-5; Acts 1:8


Through reading His Word, hearing the Word preached, and becoming active in what He has called us to do, we are ever-growing and maturing as individuals and multiplying as a church family. It is impossible to stay stagnant when giving ourselves entirely to His ways. Psalm 119; Matthew 5:16; Acts 2:40-47; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:5-10


Jesus Christ freely gave His life so that we could have a relationship with God. This is where our generosity is rooted. We are generous in giving our time, talents, finances, and resources cheerfully because He is good and, in Him, we lack nothing. We are most like God when we are giving. 1 Kings 10:1-13; Matthew 10:8; 1 Corinthians 3:13; 2 Corinthians 9:6-14


The Bride of Christ is deeply in love with Jesus Christ — it is not relegated to Sundays, religious activities, or compartmentalized in our daily lives. For those who have let go of sinful desires and know Him fully in mind, body, soul and spirit, there is no place for apathy. Deuteronomy 6:5; Psalm 84:2; Colossians 3:23; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Matthew 6:21


We are dedicated to communing with God individually and corporately. From the Old Testament to the exemplary life of Jesus, from early church leaders to powerful movements happening in our day, we know the power of open communication with God. His house is to be a house of prayer, so we will pray. Not as a last resort, but as a privilege and for pleasure. We will pray in our understanding and when we don’t have the words, the Holy Spirit prays through us. Isaiah 56:6-7l; Matthew 6:5-8; Luke 18:1; John 16:24; Romans 8:26-27; Hebrews 4:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

His Kingdom

His Kingdom is our Culture. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we become citizens of His Kingdom. His will is to be done on earth as it is in heaven. In this way of life, we transform the world for the better as we anticipate His return! Matthew 6:9-10; Matthew 20:25-28; John 14:12; Ephesians 2:19-20; Hebrews 12:1-11; Revelation 11:15

The Bible

We believe the entire Bible to be the inspired, infallible Word of God, the revelation of God’s will for man and the divine and final authority for the Christian life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17


We acknowledge Jesus Christ as true God and true man — conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, crucified, and resurrected — our High Priest and Advocate now seated at the right hand of God the Father. Matthew 1:18; Hebrews 12:2


We believe in personal salvation and forgiveness of sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, acknowledging every person’s need for the grace and mercy of God. Romans 3:23-24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 1:9


We believe in the eventual resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost. John 14:1-3; 1 John 5:11; Revelation 20:15

Water Baptism

We baptize in water all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ and who desire to publicly identify with Him, in accordance with the Bible’s command. Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit, whose purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ and instruct and empower every believer for godly living and service. John 16:13-14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 We believe that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is a promise from the Father for every believer and is distinct and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Speaking in tongues, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, is a physical indication of the baptism with the Holy Spirit. Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4, 38-39, 19:4-6


We serve the Lord’s Supper and, according to Scripture, remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross and celebrate His resurrection power. Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Second Coming of Christ

We believe in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that His appearance will be accompanied by a bodily resurrection of those who have died in Christ. Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Divine Healing

We believe that Jesus is the Healer. Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24

Power of Prayer

We believe in the power and effectiveness of prayer. Philippians 4:6-7; James 5:15-16
