(2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20; John 7:38)
We have an unyielding commitment to the authority and sufficiency of the Bible. It is the final and complete revelation for teaching and instruction on life, living, and what it means to follow God.
Following Jesus’ Way
(Hebrews 12:2; John 1:1; John 14:6)
The first group of people committed to following Jesus came from diverse cultural and spiritual backgrounds, with differing values, and ideas. Yet they chose to lay aside their agendas and submit themselves in obedience to Christ’s teaching, his authority, his agenda, and his values.
(Acts 15:22-35; Psalm 63:1; Matthew 6:6-8)
We are committed to knowing God not playing church. We believe the Christian life is a holistic life of honesty with one another and God. We are committed to obedience in both our private and public lives.
(Acts 2:42-47; Acts 11:20; Ephesians 4:1-16; Isaiah 57:15; Psalm 51:6)
Genesis tells us we were created to live in meaningful relationships with God and other people. We are all sinners and longing for a clean start, therefore we commit ourselves to becoming a humble and contrite community of faith, driven by grace.
(Acts 13:1-3; Acts 1:8; John 4:34-36, Philippians 2:5)
We believe that the Gospel is not simply a message on paper, but a calling in which we participate. We believe our mission is expressed in Jesus’ words to the disciples, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you,” and we endeavor to put that calling above our own comfort and desires. We will avoid a consumer approach to church and strive to be active participants in God’s grand story of redemption; we therefore commit ourselves to loving service in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, places we play, and around the world.
