God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. 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 and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.

We believe that through the Bible, God has presented us with a better way to live. We recognize the authority of scripture and our need to adjust to it.
We pursue intimacy with God as the normal form of relationship between God and man, made possible through Jesus. As a result, we live under his grace.
We believe that gathering in groups is the best place for discipleship, span of care, spiritual growth and application. We also understand that as we gather, there are no experts, no one who has it all together. We’re able to look at each other and say, “Us too.”
We recognize that God distributes Spiritual gifts (time, talents, treasure) for the equipping of the Church to serve as Christ to the world. Each one of us has a unique purpose and personality.
We accept our responsibility to eliminate obstacles, create environments and provide optimum opportunities for people to experience God’s Spirit at work in human hearts. That is accomplished by maintaining a servant’s heart. (What can I do for you?)
We intentionally leverage influence in our world for the purpose of introducing people to the awesome love of Christ. We know that we cannot change anyone’s life. Our only responsibility is to ask people to “come and see.”
