We are committed to responsible Biblical teaching.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV) “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, prepared for us, and given to us. We strive to provide a responsible theology based on sound Biblical principals in every facet of our ministry efforts. This is an unwavering and uncompromising stand that we make.
We are committed to meeting the needs of families.
Nehemiah 4:13-14 (NASB) “...then I stationed men in the lowest parts of the space behind the wall, the exposed places, and I stationed the people in families with their swords, spears and bows. When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people: ‘Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.’
We believe that entire family unit (nuclear or extended) is a vital part to our community of faith. We strive to provide the necessary programs, events, and support to care for families as a whole.
We are committed to creating welcoming environment.
Acts 2:46-47 (NKJV) “So continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”
We believe that all people are welcome in the Kingdom of God. We strive to create a Church environment and culture will openly welcome anyone who would come and to show them the love of Christ through our actions and deeds.
We are committed to sharing God’s love in word and in deed.
Mark 12:30-31 (NIV) “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
We believe that the ministry of Christ, and later of his disciples, was one of intentionality and of love, most specifically to those that did not yet know the Gospel of Christ. We strive to make ourselves prepared, in all situations, to engage anyone who may come with the life changing truth of the Gospel of Christ.
INTIMACY WITH GOD:
We are committed to making the presence of God a priority in all that we do.
Exodus 33:15-16 (The Message) “Moses said, ‘If your presence doesn't take the lead here, call this trip off right now. How else will it be known that you're with me in this, with me and your people? Are you traveling with us or not? How else will we know that we're special, I and your people, among all other people on this planet Earth?’”
We believe that having an intimate relationship with God is central to the Christian experience. We strive to bring individuals into the loving presence of God in all facets of our ministry life.
We are committed to being disciples of Christ, not just church goers.
Luke 14:33 (NKJV) “So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be my disciple.”
We strive to provide a pathway and the necessary support to help believers become more and more like Jesus.
ARTISTIC ACTS OF WORSHIP:
We are committed to redeeming the arts and using them to glorify God.
Psalms 33:3-4 (NLT) “Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.”
We believe that God has called us all to express our worship of him through outward expressions of love and reverence—to persistently sing to him a new song. We strive to provide opportunities for any who may come to take their outward expressions of their artistic talents and learn to use them for the glory of God and His kingdom.
We are committed to steward our resources well.
Matthew 25:14-40 (v. 21 | NKJV) “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’”
We believe that all the gifts that God has bestowed upon us (whether physical, mental, financial, or spiritual) are to be used for the edification of our Lord. We strive to be responsible and wise with the gifts that the Lord has given and to use them for the edification and advancement of the Church according to our understanding of the will of God.
