What We Believe

 

We exist to connect people to the heart of God, the salvation of Jesus, and the family within His church. As the church, we are a great force upon the earth, an undeniable presence demonstrating God’s love in action.

We are a people of one heart and soul, made complete by the Spirit of God. Our house spans across generations, uniting the old and young, placing value on every individual.

Here there is truth, freedom, grace, and joy. Here there is Jesus, the hope of the world.
