Statement of Faith

  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, that He was crucified for the atonement of sin, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We are committed to being a daily witness to the life changing power of Jesus Christ as He reigns as Lord of our lives.
  • We believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, the infallible and authoritative source of Christian doctrine.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the only hope for the redemption of man is to trust in Jesus Christ, the Virgin born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself punishment for the sin of mankind. After receiving Jesus, man is redeemed through the shed blood of Jesus.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers and fellowship for spiritual health, accountability and growth.
  • We believe in the equality of all human beings regardless of culture, race, age, gender or financial status.
  • We believe that man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, therefore, praise through the arts is an integral Christian response.
  • We believe in seeking out the lost and communicating the Gospel in the cultural language of the hearer, through drama, music and meeting practical and physical needs.
