Equipping the church with impactful resources for making and teaching disciples.

Mission statement

Our Mission: To equip the Church with Christ-centered resources for making and teaching disciples who obediently transform today's generations.

Statement of faith

God: We believe there is one God, the Creator of all things, infinitely holy and eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ: We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, and He is co-equal with God the Father. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, words, works, death, resurrection, ascension, and the promise of His return. As our Savior and our Lord, Jesus Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life." He came into the world to provide salvation through faith in Him as Savior and Lord and to restore men and women to fellowship with God.

The Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father. The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers the believer to lead a godly life.

The Bible: We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the divinely inspired, infallible, and only authoritative Word of God-supreme and final in its authority in matters of faith and practice.

Redemption: We believe people become children of God upon true repentance-turning away from sin and to Christ as Savior, receiving God's forgiveness for sin through Christ's atoning death by crucifixion.

The Church: We believe the Church is Christ's body, composed of all people who accept Christ in faith and commit their lives to His Lordship. The Church, spiritually conceived, is a living organism which expresses itself through dedicated followers of Jesus Christ, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

The Local Church: We believe the local church is where people gather to worship God in spirit and truth, share the good news of Jesus Christ, relate with others, and prepare disciples to fulfill their God-given purposes.

The Christian Life: We believe the Christian life is set apart by trust in Christ, the pursuit of righteousness, and fellowship with Him. We are called to submit daily to Christ, to study His Word, and to repent when we fall short. The two great commandments summarize the Christian life: to love God with all our hearts, souls, strength, and minds; and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Eternal Life: We believe when one accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, eternal life begins. Those who reject Christ as Savior and Lord are separated from Christ in eternal punishment.
