The message of the cross is as powerful and life changing today as ever it was! We are not focused on culture wars, politics, or seeking to exercise worldly influence. We are committed fully to preaching the good old-fashioned message of Jesus Christ - crucified, buried, risen from the dead, ascended to heaven, and soon to return. We preach the simple message of faith and obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38). The grace of God honors our faith and it's by that grace we are saved, not by any works or means of our own.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. - Isaiah 40:8
Our message is fully based upon the inspiration and authority of the Bible, God's Holy Word. While some of our positions on certain issues are more progressive than many churches, those positions are not the result of throwing Scripture out the window, but rather years of deep and sincere study, We are not content having only a surface understanding of issues that so seriously affect believers. People are deeply wounded and souls are lost when the Word of God is handled carelessly or manipulated to support preconceived notions and long held biases and dogmas. Our goal is truth, even when that truth is inconvenient or uncomfortable.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria,
and unto the uttermost part of the earth. - Acts 1:8
For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
I Corinthians 2:2
AFFIRMING OF ALL
...for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. - Isaiah 56:7
All who sincerely seek to know and serve the Lord in truth are joyfully and fully welcomed, affirmed and included in all aspects of our church ministry and family. The only thing that separates a child of God from a lost soul is faith in the accomplished work of the Lord Jesus Christ and a sincere desire to know God, walk with Him and live a testimony on His behalf so that a lost world might find Him through us. We believe all Christians live a life that is godly and righteous, but the true righteousness that is necessary for heaven is imparted to us by faith. Our faith is accounted unto us for righteousness, this is the promise of God's Word. So whatever your background, age, race, skin color, primary language, church background, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status - you are welcome into the fellowship of this church, without exception, and without apologies. We welcome and affirm all believers, all couples and all families. We make no room for prejudice of any kind in this church. We do not just talk Christian love, we practice it.
We believe that God's people walk in the blessing and favor of the Almighty. This does not mean that we are all to be rich, but it does mean that He meets our needs, heals our bodies, delivers us from trouble, and intervenes when all seems hopeless. The same powerful experiences lived by the Apostles of Jesus Christ and the early Christian church are available to us today if we will live a Christian witness and serve the Lord with all that is within us!
