MISSION & VISION

Love God & Love People 
 
We seek to cross Generational, Cultural, Economic, & Social barriers by bringing restoration to people in all areas of their life through the example of Jesus Christ, to ultimately advance the Kingdom of God. 
 
 

CORE VALUES

Love God
 
Our number one priority, above everything else, is to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matt 22:37). It is through loving God, that we find our purpose and destiny, because He has an amazing plan for each and every person. That plan can only come about through a healthy, loving relationship with God. 
Love People
 
We love people because God has given everyone eternal value. Each person has purpose & destiny, so we intentionally love people to direct them toward God’s perfect plan for their life (1 Peter 4:8). The foundation of loving people starts with acceptance. We believe that Jesus accepts everyone just as they are, and He loves too much to leave them that way. 
Be Jesus
 
It is vital to create a culture that will better serve our church, community, and world. To Jesus, serving others is more important than individual status. We can look to Jesus to be the greatest example for how we should live our daily lives (1 John 1:3). 
Advance the Kingdom
 
The sole purpose of the body of Christ is to advance the Kingdom of God. Our heartbeat is the prayer of Matthew 6:10, “Your Kingdom done & Your will be done on Earth as is it is Heaven.” Because of the power of the Holy Spirit, we have a mission to preach, teach, and be living examples of the Kingdom on Earth, until Jesus returns. 
 

We Believe

We believe the Bible is divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, the infallible revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. Rom. 15:4, 1 Thes. 2:13, 2 Tim.3:16-17, 2 Pet.1:20-21

We believe there is only one true, eternal God revealed in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Gen.1:1, 26, Deut.6:4, Isa.43:10-11, Mt.28:19, Lk.3:22, 1John 5:7

We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, sacrificial death to save us from our sins, and His resurrection and ascension to heaven. Mt.1:21, 23, John 1:1-2, 14, 3:16, Acts 1:2-3, 9, 2:22

We believe in the sinfulness of all mankind and the need of salvation, available only through the blood of Jesus Christ to all who believe and receive Him as Savior. Rom.3:23, 6:23, 10:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:4-7

We believe the finished work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body. Isa.53:4-5, Mt. 8:16-17, I Pet.2:24, James 5:14-15

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life. Sanctification is the process of being separated from sin and dedicated to God, which begins at salvation and continues throughout the lifetime of the believer. Gal.5:22-23, I Thess.4:3-5, 5:23, II Pet.3:18

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is promised to all believers subsequent to salvation as the entrance into a Spirit-filled life including: a prayer language (speaking in tongues, which is the initial evidence), gifts of the Holy Spirit, and power to be a witness and anointed servant of God. Joel 2:28-29, Lk.3:16, Acts 1:4-5, 8, 2:4, 38-39,
10:44-47, I Cor.12:4-11

We believe in the personal, imminent return of Jesus Christ. Acts 1:11, I Thess.
4:16-18, Titus 2:13

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved to everlasting resurrection life and they that are lost to everlasting damnation. Acts 24:15,
I Cor.15:20-23, Rev.20:4-6, 12-15

We believe in the Spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Rom.15:5, Eph. 4:3, 11-13, Phil. 2:1-5, 1 Cor. 12:14-27, John 17:22-29, Col. 3:12-15, Heb. 10:23-25

We believe in the responsibility of every believer to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Mt.28:19-20, Mk.16:15-20, Acts 1:8, 2:40-41, 47
