We embrace the salvation that Jesus alone offers as the only hope for the healing of our relationships with God, others, and ourselves. We believe that all of our fears, failures, and brokenness can be restored and made whole. We believe that God wants to bring about a new creation by redeeming every part of us. We’re devoted to building an engaged, passionate, spiritually healthy community of people.
As image-bearers of God, we see every person as important. We believe that we were created to live deeply with one another, carrying each other’s burdens, sharing our possessions, to suffer and celebrate together. We are devoted to having honest, loving relationships that God can use to transform us, and where truth becomes a reality instead of an exclusive doctrine. We’re devoted to living lives that experience and show God’s love, rescue, resurrection, & restoration.
We were created to live for something larger than ourselves. We believe that the Church is at it’s best when it serves, sacrifices, loves, and cares about the things God cares about. Jesus calls His Church to be a compelling force for good in the world. We are passionate about relieving suffering and helping people who are oppressed. We want to live out the transforming message of the resurrected Jesus.
We believe that God is a three-person being:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

(Revelation 20:10, 15)
We believe that winning people to Jesus is the most important responsibility of every believer.
TITHES & OFFERINGS
We believe that the method designed by God for the support and spread of His cause is the giving of tithes and free-will offerings.
