Proverbs 29:18 Without a vision, the people perish...

With Christ as our head, and the Bible as our guide, we will provide for the needs of the people in our community by worshiping through praise, witnessing with passion, and by implementing programs designed to address the needs of individuals from every sector of our community that demonstrates the relevance of Christianity through contemporary and creative expression of our faith.

Deity of Christ: We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and in His bodily resurrection.

The Bible: We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.

Salvation: We believe in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit:  We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as a subsequent gift to Salvation.

Bodily healing and the atonement of Christ: We believe in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Savior.
