we carry ourselves according to these beliefs

We believe in God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  

We believe that all sin and fall short of the glory of God, but that God sent his son incarnate, Jesus, to pay the penalty for sin and to restore us to right relationship with him.  We believe that Jesus was crucified, died, and was raised again on the third day.

We believe that when believers are baptized into Christ, they are forgiven of sin and saved by grace alone through faith, and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, who makes it possible for us to grow more and more like Christ, and to bear fruit.

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and is absolutely authoritative in how we live and worship.

We believe that our pattern for church organization and worship is based on both the commands of scripture and also the examples we see in the early church as revealed in scripture , which is why  we take communion weekly, baptize by immersion, sing a cappella, and are an independent congregation led by shepherds

RELATIONSHIPS formed

we all have individual stories of brokenness

sharing these stories lay the foundation for our depth  of relationship with Christ and one another

FAITH strengthened

we own our own personal spiritual growth

taking ownership of our faith means engaging in spiritual discipline with people who do not look and think exactly like us
