What to Expect

We are praying your gathering with us will lead you to experience Christ and grow in faith in Him and what He can do.

Our Beliefs

Belief is important. It determines how we act and live. Also, when we review our actions, they reveal what we truly believe. If you are coming from a background of faith in God or from a background that is foreign to God or to church, it is difficult to understand what living by love and faith in Jesus Christ means apart from experiencing it lived out in community. We trust that once you belong to a church family, you’ll have a much clearer picture of what we believe and why we believe in Jesus Christ risen from the dead.


There is one God who exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has existed in community in a relationship of mutual love for all eternity. At His own time and in His own way, God created everything that exists for His glory and enjoyment. He also sustains everything that exists and is intimately involved in the relationships of daily life.


Jesus Christ, God’s Son, has always been fully God, became fully human when He was born to the virgin Mary. He was fully human and fully God. He lived a perfect life in place of our imperfect lives; died, as our substitute on the cross, the death we deserved to die because of our sin and selfishness; and rose physically from the dead. He offers us full life by the promise of His resurrection life in all who become His followers by faith in Him. He ascended into heaven and today is the only mediator and representative we need with God the Father.


We experience the full life and presence of God in our relationship with the Spirit, who convicts us of sin, points us to Christ, and applies Christ’s life and work to our lives. He gives gifts and power to the church. He creates genuine and loving biblical community in the church. He reveals truth and guides our lives, individually and together so we can live to glorify and enjoy God.


We are eternally connected to God in only one way – by receiving the offer of forgiveness and reconciliation God offers us by Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. This gift of new life is eternal – it never ends. All who place their trust in Jesus Christ by the gift of God’s gift of grace are adopted as His sons and daughters. There is nothing we can do to deserve this life – it is all a gift of God. When we receive Christ, God has begun the lifelong process of changing our affections, minds, and habits, from the inside out while He makes our character more and more like Jesus’ character. Only then do we have real hope for being able to fully love, serve, and enjoy other people.


The Bible is God’s completely true story about who He is, what He has done, what He is doing, and what He will do. It was given by God to human writers and so reflects their backgrounds, style, and use of language. The Bible is the final authority on all matters to which it speaks. It is not only totally true, but it is our guide for daily living as we follow Jesus Christ.


In His own time and in His own way, God will bring the world as we know it to an end. According to His promise, Christ will return personally and visibly to reward those who love Him and righteously judge all those who reject Him. He will bring perfect justice and begin the new era of God’s visible reign on earth, which will last forever.


If we are in a faith relationship with Christ, we are part of His church. The Universal church of all believers is best expressed locally and is the visible demonstration of the new community Jesus Christ came to create. The primary purpose of the church is to please and glorify God by worshiping Him and extending His offer of love and grace to all people, especially those who are not yet in a genuine relationship with Him.
The church celebrates Baptism and Communion, which are gifts given by Christ and are reminders and experiences of His promises and His presence with us.
The church is made up of imperfect people who are responding day by day in our homes, workplaces, schools, and wherever He places us to God’s eternal and extravagant grace. We are thankful, joyful, and humbled by the fact that we are saved by His grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. We no longer need to try to be good people because we are His people that He indwells and loves.
We exist to Glorify God, Gather, Grow, and Go.
Colossians 1:27 “God decided to make known the riches of the glory of this mystery… which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
