Our Beliefs


Loving God, and loving people…it’s what we’re all about!


Our vision is to call people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. A fully devoted follower of Christ is someone who is growing continually in a richer and deeper relationship with God while exemplifying an increasing love for others. 

We seek to empower people to get planted in our church, Grow Roots, and Branch Out to love and serve others. To fulfill the life that God has uniquely designed for each one of us, we believe that people must be Saved, Healed, Delivered, Set Free, Disciples, Empowered, Equipped, and Serving others in a way that will bring God glory.



We believe:

  • That the Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative written Word of God.
  • That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and  Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, miracles, substitutionary and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
  • That the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that by God’s grace through faith alone we are saved.
  • That Water Baptism is an act of publicly acknowledging and identifying with Jesus Christ.
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation.
  • In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as given to believers who ask for it.
  • In the giving of tithes and offerings out of what God has graciously given us, in order to meet the needs of the church, for ministering to those who attend, and for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
  • In the healing power of God and recovery of the sick through the laying on of hands according to Mark 16:18.
