Our Culture"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
We believe that every church should have a distinct culture. We embrace our culture. This is who we are. This is what we do.
We aRE A LIFE-GIVING CHURCH
Jesus stated his mission in John 10:10. He came to bring us an exceedingly abundant life. We strive to use our words, our actions, and our heart of compassion to lead others to experience a life with Jesus.
We are a DANGEROUS Church
We believe in fulfilling the dangerous mission of Jesus. To be liberal with our love, and conservative in our theology. It may be unusual for some, unpopular with many, but we are unwavering in our belief.
We are a FUN CHURCH
We believe that life change can be much easier if it is enjoyable. So why not make church fun? We choose to make church an enjoyable experience. We change lives one smile at a time.
We are a GENEROUS Church
1 Timothy 6:18 Jesus commands us to be “…generous and willing to share.” God blesses us to be a blessing to those around us. We will be generous with our time, our finances, and our faith.
We are a Passionate Church
John 3:16 “For God so loved…” We are passionate towards God, because he is passionate towards us. We will be passionate towards life, our church, and our Lord Jesus. We love a loud church.
We are an Excellent Church
The mission of Jesus is too important to do anything half-hearted. Ecclesiastes 9:10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” We make the commitment to work hard, stay consistent, and keep margin in all areas of life.
We are a Leading Church
We believe God created us to be leaders in our families, our church, and our community. And we do this by following Christ’s example of servant leadership found in Matthew 20:28.
We are a Church On-Mission
We are focused on changed lives. We will live out the Great Commission of Jesus found in Matthew 28:18-20. We will lead people to experience the hope of Jesus.
We are committed to sound Biblical theology
Even though our methods and worship styles may be progressive, our doctrines are as traditional as they come.
We believe in the Bible
The Bible is completely inspired by God, and serves as our authoritative guide for faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:15-17: 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21
We believe in Jesus
As God’s Son, and the divine virgin birth, Jesus is both completely man and completely God.
Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Matthew 28:6; Acts 1:11
We believe in Fall of Humanity
Humanity’s sin has separated it from God, and the only way to restore the relationship is forgiveness offered through Jesus Christ, making us right before God and leading us on a life-long path to God.
Romans 5:12-19; Luke 24:47; Titus 3:5-7
We believe in the Ordinances of the Church
The Bible gives us two ways to show our commitment to Christ that we should absolutely follow:
Water Baptism after Salvation
Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47,48
Participating in Holy Communion
1 Corinthians 11:26
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a free gift for all believers that will give them strength to live life as a witness of Jesus Christ.
Acts 1:8; 2:4; 19:1-7
We believe in The Church
There is one Holy Universal Church that has a mission to evangelize the world, disciple followers of Christ, worship God, and provide Christlike works of compassion to all.
Mark 16:15, 16; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:11-16; James 1:27
We believe in the Second Coming
Jesus will return, judge the world, and begin a time of eternal relationship with those who follow Him and eternal separation from those who choose not to follow. Jesus is our eternal hope.
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Revelation 20:11-13; 2 Peter 3:13
