"Now this is eternal life—
that they know You,
the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent."
GOD IS LOVE
We believe in the one true God - holy, eternal and worthy. We believe that He is love and that He loves us and wants to intimately know and be known by us. We believe that His goodness, kindness and mercy are the same yesterday, today and forever. We believe that intimacy with God is what life is all about, both now and for eternity, and that it is the key to a victorious, meaningful and fruitful existence.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is God. He is the presence of Jesus with and within believers so that we may know the Father’s love intimately, just as He did, and that we may reveal His love to the world around us, just as He did. We believe that He speaks to us, convicts us, teaches us, frees us, comforts us, reveals Jesus to us and gives us gifts to strengthen and grow us in the love of God. We believe He is trustworthy and good and we cannot live this life apart from Him.

Rom 8:14-17 and 26-27, Gal 5:16-23,
1 Cor 12:4-11, 2 Cor 3:17, Rom 5:5
We believe that Jesus came to establish His eternal, heavenly Kingdom here on earth. We believe it is His desire, as stated in the Lord’s prayer, to see heaven break forth more and more every day until He returns. We believe that when He returns, we will see His Kingdom on full display. On that day, the old will pass away and the new will come. Death and darkness will be no more, and forever He and His people will reign in the light of His glory, wonder and love. Hallelujah!
Lk 1:30-33, Matt 6:9-13, Matt 10:7-8,
Acts 1:10-11, Jn 14:1-3, 1 Thess 4:16-17,
Fully God and fully man, we believe that Jesus is the Christ. He is the revelation of the Father’s infinite love for us, and we believe that it’s our faith in His life, death and resurrection that frees us from our sins to experience being righteous, eternal and beloved children of God. We believe that Jesus will come again to establish the fullness of His Kingdom, and like a bride, we cannot wait for that day to come.
1 Jn 5:1, Jn 3:16, 1 Jn 3:1, Rom 3:22-25,
Rom 5:8, Rom 8:1--39, Rev 22
We believe the Bible is God’s living and authoritative word. As that, we believe it is powerful against the schemes of darkness and able to teach us and train us to walk in the fullness of God. It is full of revelation on how to grow in true knowledge and intimacy with Him. As A. W. Tozer says, we believe the Bible “is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.”
Heb 4:12, Eph 6:17, 2 Tim 3:14-17
We believe that God wants to unite and transform His Church in His presence. We believe that He made us to deeply need each other and that His love bridges all barriers to make us one new creation together in Christ. We believe that Jesus has commissioned us to both invite and empower others to live in God’s love daily through relationship with the Holy Spirit. We believe that He is worthy of our endless hallelujah, and we are giving ourselves to loving Him and helping others love Him with and for their entire lives.
