Our focus is to see men and women restored spiritually, physically, and emotionally through the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. It is an honor for us to help them, to lift them up and most importantly to teach them about the redeeming, transforming power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Mission statement

Our mission statement is breaking chains of addiction through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Statement of faith

Our beliefs are based on Jesus' command " 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' ' (Matthew 22:37-39)

While our mission statement is breaking chains of addiction through our Lord Jesus Christ, it all centers around "Love God, Love People" Below we've explained a little more about what that means to us. If you want to know more about our doctrinal beliefs, you may want to read The Baptist Faith & Message ( https://bfm.sbc.net ).

We believe that God is the Creator of everything and that he exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; John 16:7-15; Hebrews 1:2-3)

We believe that God created us to worship him and give him glory. (Isaiah 43:7, 21; Psalm 96:9; Matthew 4:10)

We believe that sin has kept us from knowing God and worshipping him but that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, was physically resurrected, and now offers a restored relationship with God to all who believe in him. (John 3:16; Acts 2:22-39; Romans 3:21-24)

We believe that salvation is a free gift given at God's initiative and must be received personally by faith. (John 5:24; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9)

We believe the Bible to be God's Word, a true and fully accurate account of God's love for us. Its purpose is to teach us how to have a relationship with him, worship him, and bring him glory. (Psalm 19:7-10; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

We believe that Jesus established his body on Earth in the church and that the church is a community that exists for the purpose of declaring the gospel and glory of Jesus throughout the world. (1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Colossians 1:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9)

We believe the church is a family and that every believer should be identified with a local body of believers for the purpose of mutual encouragement, spiritual growth, and accountability. (Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 3:12-25; Hebrews 10:24-25)

We believe that God cares about every need of every person and that the church, as Christ's body, is to show his love and care for every person. Every member of the church is called to be a minister of the gospel through acts of loving service and a willingness to share the truth of the gospel with everyone at every opportunity. (John 13:34-35; 1 Peter 3:15; 1 Peter 4:8)

We believe that the scope of God's love is worldwide, and this church is committed to taking the gospel to the farthest and most unreached places of the world. (Isaiah 49:6; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 10:13-15; 1 Timothy 2:3-4)
