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
we all have individual stories of brokenness
sharing these stories lay the foundation for our depth of relationship with Christ and one another
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
