A people transformed by Jesus, loving the world around us

Our Vision

our mission 

To be a community where you can:

BE yourself

BELONG to something bigger 

BECOME who you were meant to be

When it comes to theology and doctrine, we follow the motto:  “In essentials unity; in non-essentials liberty; in all things love.”  We want to agree as a community on the essentials of the Christian faith, and we want to allow room for disagreement on non-essentials.  We believe that the essentials, the core of Christian belief found in Scripture, are as follows: 

GOD – We believe in one God, Creator of all things, who exists eternally as a Trinity of persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

JESUS – We believe Jesus Christ our Lord is the eternal Son of God, truly human and truly God.  

HOLY SPIRIT – We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and is fully divine. The Holy Spirit works to transform followers of Jesus from the inside out. The Spirit empowers God’s people with gifts in order for them to strengthen the Church and be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.  

BIBLE – We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired and are the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

HUMANITY – We believe God created humanity in His image. Because of sin, every person is in desperate need of God’s grace, forgiveness and transforming love.  

SALVATION – We believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus reconciled humanity to God. We become new creations and enter into a right relationship with God by grace through faith in Jesus.  

MISSION – We believe Jesus sends His followers on a mission to invite people to be reconciled to God. Included in this mission is partnering with God to see His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

ETERNITY – We believe that one day there will be an end to history where everyone will face the perfect love and perfect justice of God.
