“There is one body and one spirit- just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call- one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God, and Father who is OVER all and THROUGH all and IN all”

OUR CORE VALUES
FAITH | CREATIVITY | COMMUNITY
What we believe
Scripture: We believe that the Bible is God-breathed (inspired) and that His Word is alive and applicable in the past, present, and future. (2 Timothy 3:14-17, Matthew 24:35).
God: We believe that God is our CREATOR and that we were CREATED in His image with an ability to express emotion, think based on our own intellect and make choices by our own free-will (Genesis 1-2).
Jesus: We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that it is only by FAITH in His grace, offered to all at the cross, to those who have repented of their sin, that we are able to receive eternal life (John 1:1-5, I Corinthians 15:3-4, I John 1:9, Romans 3:23, John 5:24).
Holy Spirit: We believe that God himself was the perfect example of COMMUNITY as demonstrated through the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit at work in the life of the believer convicts in time of sin and trial, guides in time of confusion, and gifts according to divine appointment (I Corinthians 2:9-12, Titus 3:3-8).
Life: We believe that because we have received the Holy Spirit, it is now our duty to demonstrate the transformation from sin to salvation through the way we love, empower and grow those in our COMMUNITY (Romans 12).
