Our Mission

Our Mission is to lead everyone into a deeper relationship with Jesus by continually loving just one.

The Great Commandment

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul and…mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:37-40

The Great Commission 

"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Matthew 28:19-20

Our Core Beliefs 

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22
Psalm 90:2
Matthew 28:19
1 Peter 1:2; 2
Corinthians 13:14

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23
Isaiah 9:6
John 1:1-5, 14:10-30
Hebrews 4:14, 15
1 Corinthians 15:3, 4
Romans 1:3, 4
Acts 1:9-11
1 Timothy 6:14, 15
Titus 2:13

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17
John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17
Acts 1:8
1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16
Ephesians 1:13
Galatians 5:25
Ephesians 5:18

The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16
2 Peter 1:20, 21
2 Timothy 1:13
Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6
Proverbs 30:5

Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.

Genesis 1:27
Psalm 8:3-6
Isaiah 53:6a
Romans 3:23
Isaiah 59:1, 2
