We believe that God has spoken with authority through the authors of the Old and New Testament Scriptures to show us His thoughts, intentions, and will for humankind and all that He has created.
We believe that the gifts/manifestations of the Holy Spirit are given to all believers to be used to strengthen, encourage and comfort others. (1 Cor. 14:3) We encourage the use of the gifts as we gather and scatter as Jesus’ body.
Mission Based Ecclesiology
We believe God has been on a mission since the Fall of man to get His family back, and the Church is central to accomplishing this mission. We seek to do all things in alignment with the mission of God and under the authority of King Jesus.
Balance of Providence/Free Will
We believe God both calls us according to His foreknowledge and extends His invitation of Grace to all people. Because of that invitation, each person is accountable for his or her response and to live lives of faithful loving obedience.
We believe that the church is to be shepherded and led by a group of male elders (as qualified by 1 Timothy 3v1-7, Titus 1v5-9 and 1 Peter 5v1-4) under the authority of Jesus who is the Chief Shepherd.
Gender and Marriage
We believe that God created marriage to be a lifelong covenant between one natural born man and one natural born woman.
