We Believe That...

  1. Lost people matter to God, and therefore matter to the church. (Luke 5:27-32,Luke 15, Matthew 18:10-14) 
  2. The church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure. (I Corinthians 9:19-23)
  3. Every Christian must pursue holiness and continually take steps toward intimacy with Christ. (Ephesians 4:25-32, Hebrews 12:1, Philippians 1:6)
  4. The church should offer opportunities for all people to serve and participate according to their relationship with Christ, their Spiritual Gift, and their level of commitment”. (1 Cor. 12:14-22, 27)
  5. Ministry is best accomplished in teams. (I Corinthians 13, Nehemiah 3, Luke 10:1, John 13:34-35)
  6. Clear biblical teaching is the catalyst for life transformation, and that ongoing life-change happens best in small groups. (Luke 6:12-13, Acts 2:44-47)
  7. Excellence honors God and inspires people. (Colossians 3:17, Malachi 1:6-14, Proverbs 27:17)
  8. Giving is an act of worship and is a tangible expression of our love for God. We recognize the biblical model for giving is at least 10% of all our increase to honor Him. (Prov.3:9-10, Lev. 27:30, Malachi 3:8-12)
