Our Beliefs

 

Our Beliefs

Authority of Scripture

We believe that all Scripture is divinely inspired and serves as the final authority in all matters of belief and behavior (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

Worship

We believe that we are created by God to worship Him, and that glorifying God is the ultimate reason for our existence (John 4:23-24).

Prayer

We believe that prayer is the privilege and responsibility of every Christian, and that God unleashes His power and leading in the lives of those who spend time in prayer (Matthew 6:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Family

We believe that the family is God’s foundational institution for human society (Matthew 19:5-6; Ephesians 5:22-6:4).

Fellowship/Community

We believe that God instructs Christians to cultivate loving relationships as a community of believers (Romans 12:10; 1 John 4:7-11).

Life Transformation

We believe that all Christians should daily pursue a growing, personal relationship with Christ, and are responsible for becoming more like Christ in their beliefs and conduct (Ephesians 4:13; Colossians 1:28).

Every Member Ministry

We believe that God cares about the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of every person. Further, we believe that every member of this church is called to minister (Ephesians 4:11-12).

Personal Evangelism/Missions

We believe that every person is important to God, that God desires a personal relationship with every individual, and that He has entrusted us with the message of salvation (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

Stewardship

We believe that biblical stewardship involves the proper management of all that God has given us … time, money, abilities, etc. … to expand his Kingdom (1 Corinthians 4:2; 1 Peter 4:10).
