Our mission is the “We live to give everyone the chance at a fresh start with Jesus and His Church — providing people of all ages, races, and walks of life an opportunity to pursue their full potential.”
The Vision of this ministry grew out of Romans 15:13. The heart of our Church is to see more lives changed, marriages restored, addictions healed, by the love of Jesus and the hope of the Gospel. Our prayer is that we will let the hope of Jesus Christ overflow out of us into our community.
1. Jesus Is the Center.
Colossians 2:7 // Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
2. We Honor and Love One Another to Glorify God.
1 Thessalonians 3:12 // And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows.
3. We are Contributors not Consumers.
2 Corinthians 9:12 // So two good things will result from this ministry of giving—the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God.
4. We don’t Maintain, We Multiply. We will Never Take this For Granted.
2 Corinthians 4:15 // All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.
5. We are Generous.
Proverbs 11:25 // A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
God is great. He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move, and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.
THE HOLY SPIRIT:
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each posses equal power and authority.
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 people 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 someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. We are committed to the teachings Christ, to obeying all of His commands, and to bringing the Gospel to this world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
"For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ ... " Colossians 2:12
We practice baptism by immersion under water the way Jesus was baptized, symbolizing the process of death and resurrection that Jesus went through for us.
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every man has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God and causes many problems in life.
Prayer is the ability to communicate with God. Through Jesus' salvation, we no longer need an intercessor to go between God and us; we can address Him directly.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
