There are all kinds terms and phrases that get used and abused in our language and culture. So much so that when it comes to Jesus and those who would follow Him, it becomes necessary to define ourselves and our beliefs so as not to be misunderstood or misrepresented. As for our beliefs, we are solidly within what might be called classic historic Christian faith. The more technical term for this is biblical orthodoxy.
Mission Statement: Knowing Jesus and making Jesus known through Love, Truth, Community and Action
We Believe: That the Bible is God’s Word & our ultimate authority That the One true God exists in the persons of The Father, The Son and The Spirit That mankind is fallen and lost without Christ That Jesus lived a perfect life and died for us and that He rose again That we are saved from our sin by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone That we should live for God by faith out of gratitude That Jesus is coming again for those who know Him That there is an afterlife for each of us either in heaven with Jesus or in hell without Him That the church belongs to Christ and exists for His mission to reach the world

Q: How we do evangelism? A: Evangelism happens mostly one on one, but also in small group and sometimes in larger gatherings. It is primarily relational in nature though there are all kinds of material and ‘tools’ that are employed.
Q: How we do spiritual formation? A: Spiritual formation happens largely as a result of community group life, though we also instruct and encourage individuals in the use of personal devotional disciplines of daily quiet times of Bible reading and prayer. Community Group life will be centered around Biblical study, worship and fellowship and groups will also function as mission outreach teams.
Q: How we do leadership development? A: Leadership development will be a primary responsibility of the planter and his team. It will consist of significant study with a strong accountable mentoring component along with guided participation in leadership functions.
