Our Vision is Jesus

Abiding in His Presence, growing in His family,  & living on His mission to transform the world with awe-inspiring love.

Our Values

The Roots | Presence of God

Read: John 15, Genesis 1

The Presence of God brings life, shape, and breath to who we are and what we do. Through devotion to Jesus in Scripture and prayer we live out of our gospel identities as dearly loved sons and daughters of God.

Trunk | Family of God

Read: Acts 2:42-47

In Christ, we are more than a collection of individuals. We are growing into a strong, unified “kingdom family” marked by generosity, honor, and awe-inspiring love.

Branches & Fruit | Mission of God

Read: Isaiah 61; Matthew 28:18-20

We are sent out in the power of the Spirit to be messengers of God’s love in the world. We go with boldness to our neighboorhoods, nations, and next generation.

What We Believe

Along with this statement of faith, we acknowledge the truth expressed in the Nicene Creed & Apostles’ Creed.

One God, Three Persons
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self- existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is “true God” and “true man.”
Salvation & Grace
We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
The Church
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
Holy Spirit
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.
The Cross
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness and torment.
Return of Christ
In the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride – His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.

Our Practices


The words and voice of Jesus are what sustains us. We seek God through personal and communal prayer, choosing to trust God’s thoughts over man’s opinions.


In the words of A.W. Tozer, “What comes to mind when we think about God, is the most important thing about us.” We focus our attention on the truth and beauty of who God is through our songs, prayers, and lives.


The Holy Spirit desires to reveal the thoughts of the Father towards us. We actively pursue the gift of prophecy so that hearts can be encouraged and sons and daughters would be drawn to the Father.


Every gift we have comes the Father. We cheerfully give our resources to bless the church, serve the poor, and take care of one another’s needs.


Everyone is created in God’s image and deserves to be celebrated. We joyfully honor one another despite our weaknesses and shortcomings. 


Relationships are often complicated and messy. As we mature, we practice emotionally healthy skills that help us communicate well, love through conflict, and walk in maturity towards one another.


In God’s family there is always one more seat at the table. We seek to always be inclusive, creating opportunities for more people to experience the love of God.


The gospel of Jesus is of heaven and of earth. We trust in the power of Jesus’ name to heal us body, soul, and spirit — making us whole in every way.


God invites us to co-labor with Him as friends. We employ our God-given gifts and imaginations to participate with Him in the restoration and renewal of all things.
