Bible: We believe the Bible is God's inspired Word and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. 

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17: 16 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Children and Youth: We believe that our children and youth are precious gifts from God and essential to our church family with gifts and talents to share in ministry. 
 

Matthew 19:14: 14 “Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.' "

Priesthood of All Believers: We are God’s ministers with a purpose to fulfill according to the talents and spiritual gifts God has given us.  

1 Peter 2:9-10: 9 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. 10Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Prayer: We value heartfelt prayer with God as it provides a spiritual experience for every member and ministry of our church.  

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: 16 “Be joyful always! 17Pray continually. 18Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Fellowship: We value fellowship with one another as an expression of our living spiritual union with the Father through Jesus Christ.

 1 John 1:3-7: 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make our[a] joy complete.  5This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all[

b] sin.”

Worship: We value a relevant, dynamic worship experience that creates an atmosphere allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us through praising and glorifying God.

 John 4:23: 23 “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

Unity in DiversityWe believe that though we are culturally different, we are united by our mutual faith and love in Christ Jesus.

 1 Corinthians 12:12-14:  12 “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[

a] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.14Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.

Discipleship: We value training and equipping believers to be followers and ministers of Jesus through Biblical principles and by example.  
 

Matthew 28: 18-20: 18 “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[

a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ "
