Our Values and Beliefs

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”  Matthew 4:4

Core Values

These values are the foundation for all that we are and will become as a church family.


You will be loved. No matter who you are or what you’ve done or how you look or behave, you will be loved.

“We know that we have passed from death to life,   because we love our brothers.   Anyone who does not love remains in death.”  
I John 3:14 


Unreserved acceptance of others will be the norm.

“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners”?  On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick”. Matthew 9:11


We will release people from our own personal judgement.

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, 
just as in Christ God forgave you. 
Ephesians 4:32 

Core Beliefs

The following are our beliefs based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the inspired holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. Their sin caused them to fall out of fellowship with God and fractured all of creation ever since that time.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers us the free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior.  Salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God, proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and establish His kingdom on earth.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
