HELPING PEOPLE FIND & FOLLOW JESUS

THE 3 G’s

 

Gather
Every weekend we GATHER for a time of worship and relevant Bible teaching. You’ll find our gatherings to be warm, engaging and authentic – and through them you will be challenged to grow spiritually and become like Jesus.

Grow
We don’t just gather on Sundays. We GROW through relationships with others.  We can’t grow alone .. we grow through authentic community. Our LifeGroups are small groups of people who meet together regularly to study, pray, share life together and intentionally find tangible ways to transform their culture together.

Go
The church is not a building or a program. The church is a community of Christ followers who transform culture by serving and practically demonstrating the love of God to others. We GO by serving in the church and in the community.

OUR BELIEFS

ABOUT GOD

We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal parts of one God.  Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2, II Corinthians 13:14

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), His atoning death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3), His resurrection on the third day (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4), His exaltation to the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3), and that He will return again to reign as Lord of lords (Acts 1:11; 1 Timothy 6:13-16).

ABOUT THE BIBLE

We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write the books of Scripture (2 Peter 1:20-21). The words of the Bible are the primary source for teaching and equipping Christians for a life of righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

 

ABOUT HUMANITY

We believe that human beings were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him (Genesis 1:26), but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience (Genesis 3). As a result, humanity is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by one’s own effort (Romans 5:12-19).

ABOUT SALVATION

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross solely provides for the forgiveness of sins (Mark 10:45). Therefore, salvation is received only when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for one’s acknowledged sin (Acts 2:38). This salvation is not earned but is a gift available by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

ABOUT THE CHURCH

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the Head (Col. 1:18). The purpose of the church is to gather believers to glorify God by being a powerful witness for Jesus Christ in a lost world (Matt. 28:18-20). God wants to edify and build up His church, this is why the Holy Spirit gives a variety of spiritual gifts to believers such as; encouragement, serving, teaching, healing, prophecy, etc. (Romans 12, I Cor. 12,) We practice two ordinances in the church instituted by Christ Himself: water baptism (Luke 3:21-22) and Holy Communion (Luke 22:14-20).

 

ABOUT HEALING

We believe that Christ’s power to heal, evident in the Gospels, is available to all believers today through his atoning sacrifice (Isaiah 53:4-5). The church is to lay hands on the sick, anoint them with oil, and pray faithfully for their recovery (James 5:14-15).

ABOUT THE SECOND COMING

We believe that Christians who have died will be reunited with those still alive at the second coming of Jesus Christ (1 Thess. 4:16-17). This event will be followed by the millennial reign of Christ (Rev. 20:1-6), a final judgment (Rev. 20:11-15), and the appearance of a new heaven and a new earth (Rev. 21-22).
