OUR VISION:

To make diciples of Jesus Christ , for the transformation of the world, so that no one misses  out on the grace of God.” Matthew 28: 19-20

OUR CORE VALUES:

COMPASSION
 
We value and care about you just as you are! We seek authentic relationship with one another
COMMUNION
 
Everything happens around the Table. 
We understand the Table to be Christ’s Table. All are welcome, regardless of your faith journey, age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or church membership.
 
 
SERVANT LEADERSHIP
 
Service in the name of Christ is at the heart of being a disciple.
 
JOY
 
Each day is a new opportunity to embrace life in Christ!
 
OUR BELIEFS:
We believe the Bible is God’s word and through it, God reveals Himself to us, showing his character, and His will. Though written by man, the Bible is inspired by God and is without error. The Bible is our source of truth and guides us in our beliefs and lifestyle. It leads us to love God and others. 
 
We Believe in the Holy Trinity, that God exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal in power and are one God. 
 
We believe that salvation is a gift from God. We have not earned salvation, nor can we prove ourselves to be “good enough” through our actions to receive God’s approval. We are saved by grace through faith , and Jesus has paid the penalty of sin through his sacrifice on the cross. 
 
We believe that God is the sovereign Creator.
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless life in human form and offered himself as a sacrifice for humanity. He died on the cross and arose from the dead on the third day, revealing his power over sin and death. He then ascended to heaven where he resides with God the father until his return. 
In compliance with the guidelines set forth by the CDC and at the recommendation of the Governor’s office, all in person worship is suspended until further notice.
