We believe that God has called our church to help people become followers of Jesus. We do this by focusing our efforts on four vital ministry missions (John 7:68, John 10:10, Luke 9:23-24).
Our four key missions are:
Worship God: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.” (Matt. 22:37)
Embrace People: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt. 22:39)
Discover Faith: “Growing in every way more and more like Christ." (Eph 4:15)
Share Life: “If we love each other, God lives in us.” (1 John 4:11-12)
We seek to fulfill these four core missions both in our local congregation and around the world through support of missionaries.
Below is a listing of 10 of our core doctrinal beliefs.
The Bible is inspired. (2 Tim 3:15‑17, 1 Thes 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)
