We exist so that people can discover the new story that Jesus wants to tell through their lives.

Outstanding effort
Yes to God



Jesus is completely human and God. The fullness of God is in Christ and revealed through Christ. Jesus came to earth, lived a perfect life, and defeated death for humanity’s salvation. Any person who chooses to follow Jesus is a new creation—participating in His new Kingdom.

Colossians 1:15 | Hebrews 1:3 | Colossians 1:19; 2:9 | John 14:7-9 | John 14:6 | John 10:10 | 1 Corinthians 15 | Matthew 6:9-13 | 2nd Corinthians 5:17


God created humans in His image and likeness. Humanity fell into sin, and our only hope of restoration to our original intent and abundant/eternal life is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the true image bearer, He demonstrates to us how to become truly human.

Gen.  1:26-31 | Gen.  3:17 | John 10:10 | John 14:6 | John 17:3 | Romans  5:12-21 | Colossians 1:15


Salvation for humanity comes through Jesus Christ alone. Once we have salvation in Christ, we are renewed and restored by the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Salvation is not just about the afterlife. It is a work that begins in this life and equips us to be beacons of salvation, hope, and life. Salvation promises eternal life, but eternity starts when we know Jesus.

John 14:6 | Ephesians 1:13 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | Titus 2:11 | Titus 3:5-7 | Luke 24:47 | John 10:10 | Colossians 1:14-15 | John 17:3

The Trinity

There is one God, eternally existing as three members; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:1 | Matthew 28:19 | John 1:1 | John 4:24 | Romans 1:20 | Ephesians 4:5-6 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | Romans 8:9-11

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write both the Old and New Testament. The Bible contains the true story of God renewing and resurrecting his creation in Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21 | John 5:39 | John 5:46-47

The Holy Spirit

As followers of Jesus, the same Spirit that lived within the living Christ lives within us. The Holy Spirit empowers us to live out the fruit of the Spirit, gives us supernatural gifts to build others up, set’s us free, and reminds us of the way of Jesus. The Holy Spirit leads us in the process of sanctification.

1 Corinthians 6:19 | Romans 8:11 | Galatians 5:22 | 2 Corinthians 3:17 | John 14:26

The Church

The church is not a building. The church is the people who have given their lives to Jesus. The church is the body of Christ, the spiritual house of God. The church is the vehicle by which God brings about his Kingdom work on earth as it is in Heaven.

1 Peter 2 | Matthew 5-7 | Ephesians | Romans 12


God desires for all to be saved. Some will reject that desire. God does not impose his will on these people, therefore, they will end up eternally separated from God in a place of torment called Hell. Followers of Christ await a transformed Heaven and Earth that reflects the nature of the original garden of Eden. The story of the Scriptures is not about us getting to Heaven, but about Heaven coming to the earth to renew all of humanity and all of creation. The resurrected life that begins in the present age will exist in the age to come.

1st Timothy 2:4 | Matthew 25:46 | 1 Thessalonians 1:9 | Revelation 20:10 | 2 Peter 3:13 | Revelation 21:1 | 1 Corinthians 15:58
