Our Purpose

Our purpose is to advance the kingdom of God by training, equipping, and sending the saints out to do the work of the Gospel, reflecting God’s love for all people.

We accomplish this through

1.    Lost people saved

2.   Saved people pastored

3.   Pastored people trained

4.   Trained people mobilized

​We believe that when people find God, they find freedom, they also find God’s purpose, which leads to them making a difference in the world.​

Our Beliefs

Section 1 – The Bible
We believe the Bible, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God and is therefore without error in its original writings. We believe the Bible is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. We believe the whole Bible centers around the Lord Jesus Christ in His person and work, in His first and second coming, and that no portion, even of the Old Testament, is properly read, or understood, until it leads to Him (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 1 Cor. 2:13; Psa. 12:6; 119:105; Prov. 30:5; 2 Pet. 1:21; Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; 17:17; Acts 17:2–3; 28:23).

Section 2 – The Godhead

We believe the Godhead eternally exists in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same reverence, honor, trust, and obedience (Matt. 3:16-17; 28:18–19; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3–4; 2 Cor. 13:14; Heb. 1:1–3; Rev. 1:4–6)

Section 3 – Human Beings, Created and Fallen

We believe all men and women are created in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character and person. We believe the first man Adam fell through sin, and, as a consequence of his sin, was death. We believe this spiritual death, or total depravity of human nature, has been transmitted to the entire human race therefore, all men and women who are descendants of Adam are born into the world with a nature of sin unable to redeem themselves. The only hope for humanity is the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ. (Gen. 1:26-27; 2:17; 3:6-7; 6:5; Psa. 14:2–3; 51:5; Jer. 17:9;  John 3:19; Rom. 3:10–19; 8:6–7; Eph. 2:1–3; 1 John 3:8)

Section 4 – The Person and Work of Christ

We believe our Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men and women. We believe that He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice. We believe our redemption and salvation is guaranteed by His literal physical resurrection from the dead (John 1:1-14,18; Luke 1:35; Rom. 3:24-26; 4:25).

We believe our Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven, exalted at the right hand of God, where as our High Priest He fulfills the ministry of intersession and advocacy for His people (Heb. 1:3; 3:1; 7:23-25; I John 2:1-2).

Section 5 – The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe God the Holy Spirit is person who restrains evil in the world and convicts men and women of sin. He also regenerates those who receive Christ as Savior, baptizes them into the Church, the body of Christ, indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, grants spiritual gifts on each one and fills those yielded to Him (John 3:8; 16:16-17; 16:7-11; 1 Cor. 12:4-11,13; Eph. 4:30; 5:18-20).

Section 6: Salvation

We believe salvation is a gift of God and is received by men and women through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe that man is justified by grace through faith apart from works (Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-10). We believe salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ and receiving God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from the penalty of our sin. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, our sins are forgiven and we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a man or women receives Jesus Christ by faith. (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9; John 1:12, 14:6; Titus 3:5; Gal. 3:26; Rom. 5:1).

We believe all true believers, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever (Rom. 8:1, 38-39; John 10:27-30).

Section 7: The Church and the Sacraments

We believe the universal Church, the body of Christ, began at Pentecost, and consists of all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, regardless of organizational affiliation. We believe a person is placed into the Church by the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:22-23; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Gal. 3:28).

We believe local churches are an assembly of professed believers in Jesus Christ who are voluntarily joined together in one location for the purposes of worship, study of the Word of God, observance of the sacraments, Christian fellowship, and to be equipped for Christian service (Acts 2:42-47; I Cor. 1:1-2; Eph. 4:11-13).

We believe Jesus Christ commanded for His church the observance of the sacraments of water baptism and the Lord’s Supper until he returns (Matt. 28:19; Luke 22:18-19; Acts 10:47-48; 18:7-8; 1 Cor. 11:23-26).

Section 8 – The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return to the earth as He went, in person, on the clouds of heaven, and with power and great glory to usher in the millennial age. He will bind Satan and lift the curse which now rests upon the whole creation.  He will restore Israel to her own land fulfilling God’s covenant promises.  So that at His name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God. (Deut. 30:1–10; Isa. 11:9; Ezek. 37:21–28; Matt. 24:15–25:46; Acts 15:16–17; Rom. 8:19–23; 11:25–27; 1 Tim. 4:1–3; 2 Tim. 3:1–5; Rev. 20:1–3).

Section 9 – Eternity

We believe all people were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by our sins or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation of Jesus Christ. We believe Hell is a real place created for Satan and his fallen angels, however we believe those who do not know Jesus are to be eternally separated from God in Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. (Luke 16:19-26; 23:42-43; 2 Thes. 1:7-9; John. 3:16, Rom. 6:23; Rev. 20:11-15).
