Share the Gospel
We will be a growing, fully engaged family knit together in love, transforming lives
through the gospel of Christ and known in the community for our faithfulness and good works.
There is One God manifested through three distinct beings, the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit. God is perfect, eternal, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, gracious and loving.
Ephesians 4:4-6; Psalm 18:30; Genesis 1:1; James 1:17;
Psalm 116:5; John 3:16
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, lived a sinless life as a man. His sacrifice on the cross
offers all the unique avenue of hope through His resurrection. He reigns in Heaven and
will return to complete
His eternal plan.
Hebrews 4:15; John 14:6;
Hebrews 1:1-3; Acts 1:9-11
The Holy Spirit operates through the inspiring of the Scriptures and convicts the world of sin, righteousness and the judgment.
2 Peter 1:19-21; John 16:8
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God’s inspired word. It guides us to
Godliness in this life and the life to come.
2 Timothy 3:16-17;
Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:3-4;
1 John 5:13
God offers salvation to all by His grace through the sacrifice of Jesus. Those who accept this offer place their faith in Jesus (John 20:30-31; Hebrews 11:6), confess Him
as God’s Son (Romans 10:9-10), repent of their sins (Acts 3:19;
Luke 13:3) and are baptized (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4; Matthew 10:32). Salvation is demonstrated through
a life of faithfulness to God (Revelation 2:10; 2 Timothy 4:7-8).
Everyone who accepts God’s offer of salvation is added to His church. There is one universal church and Jesus Christ is the head. It is composed of many local congregations that are independent of each other. God’s design is for each congregation to be overseen by elders or shepherds who are responsible for the spiritual welfare of its members.
Acts 2:47; Ephesians 1:22-23;
Titus 1:5; Acts 20:28-31
As Christ’s ambassadors, we strive to continue His mission to seek and save the lost. Recognizing His power to transform lives, we share the good news of Christ with our community and world.
2 Corinthians 5:20; Luke 19:10; Romans 1:16;
The Church is commanded to worship God “in spirit and truth” on the first day of the week. Our worship must be expressed through five Christ- centered activities; singing, praying, giving, proclaiming God’s will from the Bible, and the partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Our fellowship with God transforms us so that in daily life we conduct ourselves with Christ-like integrity and love. When we meet together, we bring glory and
praise to God while strengthening, serving and encouraging one another to love and good works.
Psalm 95:6-7; John 4:23-24, Acts 20:7; Ephesians 5:19; Acts 2:42;
1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:1-2; 1 Corinthians 11:23-27; 2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:11;
We are called to share God’s love by helping those in need. We aspire to be like Jesus and do good to all people. Using our time and abilities, we demonstrate our faith by serving others.
Galatians 6:9-10; Acts 10:38; Hebrews 13:16; James 3:18
Prayer is a way we can intimately communicate with the Creator. It is the lifeline of the church and a vital part of every Christian's relationship with God. We need to be people who pray at all times because God hears and answers us.
Psalm 61:1; Psalm 17:6, Philippians 4:6; James 5:16;
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18;
1 John 5:14; Matthew 7:7-11
From the beginning, God designed marriage to be the union of one man and one woman for life. This holy relationship gives both husband and wife the blessings of help, companionship, biblical sexuality and human life. The home is where children learn, grow, develop and are taught Christian values by loving and supportive parents. God’s pattern for the family contributes to the stability of the church, our community, our nation and the world.
Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Hebrews 13:4; Colossians 3:18-21
