Psalm 138:2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Because the Bible is inspired by God and without error we hold it as the ultimate authority in life and practice. We view the 66 books of the Bible as a united story centering on the person and work of Jesus. Therefore, the Bible guides our teaching, thinking, and living as God's people who love and long to magnify the name of Jesus together.  


John 15:4-6 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Prayer is our primary work as creatures dependent on our Creator, God. We understand and practice regular, relational, and reverent prayer. We believe God wants His people to speak with him, so we go to Him often and for all things. Our individual and corporate prayer lives are genuine conversation with our heavenly Father through faith in His saving Son.  Therefore, prayer is the lifeblood of all we do as a church as we ask God to do more than we can ask or imagine by His great power.  


Ephesians 2:19-21 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.

We believe the local church is meant to be a diverse, but Christ-centered family. Belief in Jesus as one's personal savior includes adoption into God's household along with all others who call him Savior and follow Him as Lord. This new vertical relationship with God comes with new horizontal relationships with other disciples of Jesus as eternal brothers and sisters. Therefore, we seek to live in familial fellowship via regular relationship together as the church. 


Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

We believe the good news of Jesus living, dying, rising, and promising to return as the Savior for every sinner who believes in Him is worth telling everyone about! In fact, we believe Jesus wants this demonstration and declaration of the gospel to be our mission as the church. Therefore, we seek to meet the emotional, physical, and especially spiritual needs of our community by sharing this good news with all we know.
