We believe that abundant life begins in a relationship with Jesus Christ that is GROUNDED in the Word of God and expressed through regular, consistent worship.
(John 10: 10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (Ephesians 3: 14—19) For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
We believe that spiritual GROWTH is best cultivated through connecting with other believers in Bible study, fellowship, prayer, and sharing our lives together.
(Acts 2: 41—42) Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
We believe that every Christian has God given gifts and that the greatest fulfillment in life is using those gifts to SERVE others.
(Galatians 5: 13—14) For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 20: 26—28) Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
We believe the Christian life is not intended to be hidden within the walls of a church. Therefore, we intentionally SOW God’s Word and God’s finances into the world to see others come into the abundant life found in Jesus Christ.
(John 4: 35—37) Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’
