WE BELIEVE there is only one God, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully and equally God, yet personally distinct from one another.
WE BELIEVE that God in the flesh, Jesus Christ, was crucified and died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to Heaven.
WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit of God comes to live within a person once they trust in Christ as their Savior. The Holy Spirit indwells all believers to lead and empower life and relationship with God, to secure salvation, and to give gifts that build the church and spread the Gospel.
WE BELIEVE God created men and women to live in relationship with Him, but the first humans chose to rebel against God and brought sin into the world. Sin spread like a virus to all humans, and all have sinned, and that sin separated us from God.
WE BELIEVE that God loves the world, and by His grace, delights and desires to grant forgiveness and eternal life to all who trust in Christ as their Savior. Jesus died on the cross as a perfect substitute for our penalty of sin, and resurrected to overcome the death penalty caused by sin. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ – not being good enough or doing enough good – that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God.
WE BELIEVE that the Bible is God’s Word to us, written by men who were inspired by God. God wrote His Scriptures to reveal Himself to mankind, to communicate with us, and to direct us in His best way to live life.
WE SEE the "Capital C" church. The local church is the hope of the world and we know we can accomplish infinitely more together than apart.
WE SEE a Multi-Site, Micro-Church with a Mega-Vision. We wholeheartedly reject the label mega-church.
WE SEE a worship experience that has the quality of a large church and the intimacy of a small one.
WE SEE a movement that utilizes but does not rely upon the latest technology for communication and relevant experience deliveries.
WE SEE a movement of people who give up things they love for things they love more. It's an honor to sacrifice for Christ and His church.
WE SEE a movement of faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers. We never insult God with small thinking and safe living.
WE SEE a movement of contributors not consumers. The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.
WE SEE a movement where every member is known and valued through strategic initiatives; where successful families are built, where kids and students are valued, invested in and led to truly experience God.
WE SEE a spirit-empowered movement of creativity where artists can be free to be who God created them to be. God is the original artist and we are the pinnacles of His creative expression. We are people released to utilize our gifting to awaken the souls of humanity to God's greater purpose.
