ABOUT

Our mission is to prove God’s love. We aim is to accomplish this through our five focuses.

Five Focuses

At the center of our mission is the cross of Jesus. God proved his love on the cross (Roman 5:8) and now we prove his love by proclaiming the cross. These five focuses serve as our core values, strategy, marks of a disciple, and next steps.

God’s word is proof of his love for us and we can prove our love for Him by relentlessly pursuing to deepen our faith. (Jn 3:16; Ps 1:2; 1 Th 5:17; Ro 12:2)

We prove God’s love when we learn from and lean on relationships that engage, encourage, and equip us to grow. (Mt 28:19-20; Pr 27:17; Ga 6:2; Ep 4:11-13)

Joining together as a unified body for worship and accountability proves God’s love to each other and the world. (1 Co 12:27; Ep 4:16; Ph 2:2; Heb 10:24-25)

Jesus proved his love by his service and sacrifice and we should do the same with our strengths and resources. (Pr 3:27; Mt 25:40; Lk 10:36; Ac 20:35; 2 Co 9:6-11)

A true disciple of Jesus views every moment as an opportunity to prove the love that has already been proven to them. (Lk 6:38; Jn 13:34-35; Jn 15:16; Ro 12:4)

Our Beliefs

The Bible, in the original writings, is the verbally inspired Word of God without error and is the supreme, final authority in doctrine and practice (II Tim 3:16-17; II Pt 1:21; Jn 17:17; Heb 4:12).
God, the one and only true all-powerful and all-knowing infinite creator of all things, eternally exists in three equal entities: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each has the same nature and attributes, but is distinct in role and activity (Mt 28:19; II Cor 13:14).
Jesus, the Christ, was born of the virgin Mary as 100% man without ceasing to be 100% God in order that He might reveal the character of God and redeem sinful man. Being born without an earthly father enabled “God in the flesh” to break the generational sin-nature bondage thus allowing Him to be the spotless sacrificial propitiation and atonement for the depravity of all mankind (Isa 7:14; Mt 1:23; Lk 1:35; Jn 1:1, 14, 18; Rom 3:24-26, 4:25, 5:12-19; Heb 7:26).
The Holy Spirit is a divine entity of the one true God who restrains evil in the world and guides believers towards holiness by permanently indwelling and advocating with them unto the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit convicts believers of sin, regenerates believers who accept Christ as Savior, baptizes believers into the Body of Christ, and entrusts believers with spiritual gifts (Jn 3:8, 14:16-17, 16:7-11; Eph 4:30; 5:18; I Cor 12:4-11,13).
Man was created in the image and likeness of God, good and innocent, with dominion over the earth and communion with Him. The original sin brought both physical and spiritual death to mankind, forced the paternal inheritance of a sinful nature, alienated mankind from God because of that nature, and resulted in the need of salvation for the entire human race. Regardless of how good a work or attitude may be considered, an individual, separated from the work of the Holy Spirit, can not do, think, or behave in any manner that is considered good in God’s eyes (Gen 1:1, 1:27-31, 2:17, 3:7, 19; Isa 59:2, Eph 2:1-3, 12, Rom 3:23; Col 1:16-17; Ja 1:27, 2:15,16; Jn 13:34; Rom 3:10-12; Heb 11:6).

Salvation is unmerited and eternal. Jesus was the penal substitution for man’s eternal death penalty. By shedding his blood on the cross, he became the the sacrificial spotless lamb offered to God to atone and bring justice for mankind’s depravity. Mankind is justified not by works, but by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. (Acts 13:38-39; Rom 6:23; 2 Tim 1:9; Ti 2:14, 3:5; 1 Pt 1:18, 19; Gal 3:13; Eph 1:4-7, 2:1-10; 1 Jn 1:7; Jn 10:27-29, 2 Cor 5:17-19, 1 Jn 5:12-13).
The resurrection of Jesus from the dead, both literal and physical, guarantees our redemption and salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as High Priest to His Church, He fulfills the ministry of intercession and advocacy (Rom 4:25; Heb 1:3, 3:1; 7:23-25; I Jn 2:1-2).
Judgement is inevitable. At the end of time, those not found in the Book of Life are sentenced to an eternal, non-annihilating, unquenchable suffering in the Lake of Fire. Those names written in the book of life receive a new earth and are rewarded with indescribable bliss and an eternity in the presence of God. (Isa 26:19-21; Zec 14:3-5; Mt 24:21-22, 31, Rom 14:10-12; 40-41; Lk 16:19-26, 21:34-36, 23:43; Jn 14:1-3; 1 Cor 15:50-53; 2 Cor 5:6-8; Phil 1:23; 1 Th 4:14-18, 5:3; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10; 2 Timothy 3:1, 13; Ja 1:12; Rev 4:1-2, 19:11-21, 20:7-15, 21:1-4).
BAPTISM
Baptism by immersion in water is a symbolic way for a believer to publicly professing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior while identifying with His death, burial, and resurrection. Parents may dedicate their infant to the Lord as a symbol of their unyielding commitment to raise the child as outlined in the Scriptures but should not be baptized until they can personally articulate their faith and the purpose of baptism. (Pro 22:6; Mt 3:16, 28:19-20; Rom 6:2-4, 5-6; Gal 3:26-28; Col 2:12).

EUCHARIST
The Lord’s Supper is remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. The elements of the Lord’s supper represent Jesus’ body & blood proclaiming His sacrifice until He returns. Any believer can partake of the Lord’s Supper so long as they do so in a worthy manner having prayerfully examined themselves and motives before participating (Lk 22:14-20; I Cor 11:23-32).

The local church purposes to make as many people as much like Jesus as quickly as possible. It must purpose to worship God alone, adhere to scripture as absolute authority, equip for Kingdom service, develop God-honoring community, observe the ordinances, and steward lives for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. (Mt 16:18; 28:19-20; Acts 2:42-47; I Cor 1:1-2; Eph 4:11-13, 1 Tim 3:1-13).

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16
