We believe the Bible is not a mere book of stories, but rather, it is the inspired infallible and authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is but One God. The Bible speaks the mind of God which directs the path for Christian living. (II Timothy 3:15-16, 1 Peter 1:9-25)

We believe that water baptism in Jesus Christ by full immersion as a sign that we are buried with Him and that we are ready to walk in the newness of God. (1 Peter 3:21)

We believe in the dual nature of Christ; that being both human and divine. Jesus was made visible in the flesh, seen of angels and then ascended into glory. (Matthew 3:16-17; 1 Timothy 3:16; St. John 14:9)

We believe that He performed many miracles while on earth and that He died on the cross shedding His blood for our sins. Through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, we now have salvation. (Ephesians 1:7)

We believe in the infilling of the Holy Ghost, which is evidenced by speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. (Acts 2:4)

We believe in prophecy, which is the inspired declaration of God’s divine will and purpose.

We believe in sowing seed in form of offerings of various forms according to each one’s ability with cheerfulness. (Luke 6:38, 2 Corinthians 9:6-7)

We teach the importance of implementing the Word of God in order for believers to live a life of true fulfillment and sustainment in Christ. (James 1:22, 1 Peter 2:2).

Our mission is to teach children about Jesus and how He can empower their lives. We provide a safe and fun environment for children to learn the gospel and how to live our mission in the community.

The Bible is the story of God choosing a people for Himself and expanding His kingdom here on earth through evangelism. As followers of Christ, we believe this to be an integral role and function of the church. As a local outreach, we are mobilizing the message beyond our walls into the community and throughout our City.

The dynamic ministry of music creates an atmosphere for God to move in our services. Music helps to break down barriers, unify the body of Christ and prepare hearts to receive the Word of God.
