The Bible starts with, leads to, and ends in Jesus.

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." - John 14:6

Our Theology.

We don't just believe; we know.

We know who God is and what He has done for us, and we don't just hold beliefs about Him; we are convicted of Him. Convicted through the truth of His word, the actions of His love, and the presence of His Holy Spirit.

We know He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We know this conviction can't just remain in us; it should drive us to proclaim of the power and salvation in His good name.

We know that the Word is true and speaks truth. We do not lean or shift with the changes in society or politics, but we stand firm in the teachings of the Bible.

We know that this looks like showing love to those who don’t deserve it, standing up for those who are taken advantage of, caring for the brokenhearted, being generous with our lives, joyfully giving in our financial blessings, being peacemakers in the face of discord, and being a walking example of the life-giving power of Jesus Christ.

We are unashamed to proclaim of and remain in He who was, and is, and is to come.

01 | The Father

Compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in loyal love and faithfulness—these are the characteristics of our all-powerful God, the Creator and Giver of life, fully infinite in perfection and wisdom. Who, through the work of His Son and the move of His Spirit, made a way for us to reunite with Him on the next side of eternity in an act of perfect love.

(Exodus 34:6-7; Psalm 115:3; Colossians. 1:16; Psalm 36:9; 2 Samuel 22:31; Romans 16:27; John 3:16; Acts 1:8 Rev. 21:1-4)

02 | The Son

Conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, God gave His one and only son for us. Jesus walked this earth fully God and fully man, becoming a sacrificial lamb to all who call upon His name for salvation. For He who knew no sin became sin, defeating the grave, conquering death, fulfilling each messianic prophecy, and ascending into heaven. Jesus now sits in heaven at the right hand of God as our High Priest.

(Matthew 1:18, Luke 1:27, Philippians 2:6-8, Isaiah 53:7, Romans 10:13, II Corinthians 5:21, Romans 6:9, Isaiah 53:5, Luke 24:51, Hebrews 10:12-14)


03 | The Holy Spirit

The same Spirit who hovered over the waters, raised our Savior from the grave, and was poured on the day of Pentecost, is the same Spirit living in us today. The Holy Spirit is a spirit of truth, order, and peace. He is a gift from the Father who: comes alongside, advocates, fills, gifts, empowers, convicts, teaches, speaks, brings order to, and remains for all people, in all days, at all times.

(Genesis 1:2, Romans 8:11, Acts 2:2-4, John 14:16;17;26, 1 Corinthians 14:33, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, John 16:8, Matthew 10:20, Joel 2:28)

04 | Atonement + The Resurrection

Tortured under Pontius Pilate and crucified on a cross made for sinners, Jesus was the spotless lamb and sufficient sacrifice for our sins. By His wounds we are healed, and through His blood poured out, the price of our salvation is paid. Three days later, Jesus rose from the grave as a living truth: no man, enemy, or grave has power over the Son of Man.

(Mark 15:19;25, Hebrew 10:10, Hebrews 9:22, Luke 24:7, John 19:11)

05 | Salvation

Through the plan of the Father, the power of the Spirit, and the sacrifice of Jesus, we have been given a gift of salvation. Jesus Christ offers us a path to salvation as the way, the truth, and the life. By no other works or means can we be reunited with the Father, only by acceptance of our Savior in our hearts and the profession of our mouth can we receive this gift.

(Genesis 3:15, Romans 8:11, Isaiah 53:5, John 14:6, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Thessalonians 4:17, Romans 10:9-10)

06 | Baptism + Communion

Under the creation of a new covenant, we are given two sacraments to continue practicing as the body of Christ:

In an outward profession of our faith, we are baptized by water immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are given this as a spiritual connection to Jesus’ death and resurrection on the cross.

In remembrance of His sacrifice on the cross and the power of His resurrection, we take communion together. Through representations of food and drink we remember His body given and blood poured out for us.

(Hebrews 9:15, Acts 2:38, 1 John 4:10, John 11:25-26, Luke 22:19-20)

07 | Creation

In His desire to create, through divine power, and in sufficient community - God created the heavens and earth. Out of nothing He created everything, upholding all of creation by His power.

(Genesis 1:26, Genesis 1:1, Psalm 90:2, Hebrews 1:3)

08 | The Fall + Sin

In an act of spiritual rebellion, man vandalized God’s design for creation bringing sin and death into God’s good world. At the fall, mankind experienced spiritual and physical death in their separation from God. All of humanity are in parallel with the sin of Adam and continues to do so through their nature and choice.

Our sin separated us from God and continues to do so today. In our nature, we continue to fall short of God’s design for us. As a result, we are in need of a savior until we are fully restored on the next side of eternity with our creator.

(Psalms 107:11, Romans 5:12-21, Romans 8:10, Genesis 2:17, Psalm 51:5, Philippians 3:21)

09 | The Bible

The Old and New Testaments make up the infallible word of God. Inspired by the Holy Spirit we have access to God’s word for man. The Bible was written for man not to man, and requires us to approach it with wisdom, context, and prayer in order for us to fully understand the revelation of God’s design and will for man.

(1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Romans 15:4)

10 | The Church

We, as believers, make up the Church and the body of Christ, who is the head. Comprised of those who have been justified through God’s grace by faith and faith alone, the Church is comprised of local churches. The Church is the pillar of God’s design for us on this side of eternity, and we are made into the Bride of Christ ready for Jesus’s return. The Church speaks truth where the world speaks lies; it sparks hope where all seems lost; it shines a light where others can’t see; and it offers love in a time without it.

(Romans 12:4-5, Romans 5:1-2, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 5:22-23, John 14:1-3, Zechariah 8:16, Romans 15:13, John 1:5, 1 John 4:7-8)

11 | Marriage

God created marriage as a covenant relationship between one man and one woman, beautifully covered by and entwined in Himself. The design for marriage includes a biological man and a biological woman; any other idea or interpretation of marriage is not from God or His Word.

12 | Gender

In the beginning, God created two sexes: male and female. Distinct from one another they were created, separate from one another they were created, and fully equal to one another, they were created. Made in the image of God, with unique giftings and roles, men and women are to be fruitful and multiply, making great disciples amongst the nations. This is God’s design for gender, and any further addition or alteration to this falls outside God’s design and is a result of our inherent sin and rebellion against God.

13 | Race

Fully made in the image of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit man was created, and the Lord found His creation very good. Despite the color of our skin, place of origin, or ethnic background, God sees all of humanity in the same light: children of Him. Any act or movement to discredit a group or individual because of these diversities is an act of evil against its victims and the Lord Himself.

14 | Human Life

From the moment of conception, life is born and seen as sacred in the eyes of the Lord. As a result, we must value and protect this life as it continues into death. We have the responsibility as followers of Christ to protect human life in a manner of love and respect that Jesus made an example of.

15 | Ecumenism

As followers of Christ, we are called to build bridges where others have built walls within the Church. We hold fast to the word of God, making it the foundation of our lives, being firm in the essential and gracious in the peripheral. We recognize we can know God intimately, but never perfectly. As such, we will partner with any church, person, or ministry that shares our essentials and conducts themselves in a way that reflects the love of Christ to others.
