Because we clearly see from God’s Word that He is not looking for religious people; He is looking to have relationship with his creation, therefore our mission is clear:
We exist to help people release their hearts to God!
Pastor John and Michelle Mackall
Our vision is to see lives transformed into the image of Christ : by the power of Christ!
And when lives are transformed by the power of Christ we will see a church:
Where Christianity is exciting and fun; and where people can express themselves out of who God made them to be.
Where people’s longing for significance and satisfaction in life can be found.
Where it is safe to be honest with your faith and your struggles.
Where you will find people that care for you.
That welcomes everyone with respect, no matter their race, age, color, economic, or family background.
That knows it is not the clothes you wear or the color of your skin, but what is inside of you that matters.
Where people who are hurting, depressed, and frustrated can find love, acceptance, and guidance.
Where we focus on building relationships through small groups (Connect Groups) and where fun, love, faith, prayer, and growth take place weekly.
Where the relationships built in these Connect Groups will enable each person to be the light God intended you to be in the world with a network of groups that will grow into the hundreds.
Whose youth and children are excited about coming to church because they are involved, there are fun activities, great friends, and they are challenged to live out their faith.
Where we love our community and reach out to it with a heart of compassion, ready and able to meet needs with tangible acts of love.
Where we are a church that provides fun, safe, and wholesome family activities.
Where we are on mission around in our community, our city, our country, and around the world supporting and being missionaries!
Our Core Values
We are God’s family, following God’s Word, loving deeply, giving generously, and encouraging one another.
We are committed to God’s far-reaching plan of redemption and will use our God-given gifts to help others.
We seek to live our faith trusting the God we cannot see over the reality we can.
We know that there is nothing more rewarding then serving God with people you love. Our God brings us joy allowing us to laugh hard and often.
We believe we are all broken and our desire is to bring God’s unconditional love to all who seek it.
We whole-heartily expect our Heavenly Father to unleash His power through prayer, fully trusting Him for all things.
We honor Christ and His church. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God and the only source of truth.
What We Believe
We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is full and complete in its sixty-six books, which were revealed by the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is verbally inspired in every word; absolutely inerrant in the original documents. Therefore, it is totally true and trustworthy; thus, it gives us the supreme standard for all human conduct for all time.
(Isaiah 30:8; 1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:3-4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12)
“God, the Father“
We believe there is only one true and living God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. He is infinitely holy, loving, just, merciful, all powerful, all knowing, and always present. He has eternally existed and revealed Himself in three Persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
(Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 11:3)
“God, the Son, Jesus“
We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, possessing all the divine attributes and being equal with the Father. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice through His death on the cross. He rose from the dead after three days; therefore, demonstrating His power over death and sin. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again.
(Isaiah 7:14; John 10:27-40; Hebrews 1:3, 8: Matthew 1:22-25; Hebrews 7:26-27; 1 Peter 1:18-19)
“God, the Holy Spirit“
We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son, and His work is to execute God’s will among men. The Holy Spirit is a supernatural and sovereign agent in the new birth, indwelling the believer at the time of salvation. He is our Counselor and guarantees our eternal inheritance.
(Acts 5:3-4; John 3:5-7; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe that man was created by God and in the image of God for the purpose of enjoyment and fellowship with God. We believe that through sin man has fallen out of relationship with God, and that through his own effort, cannot achieve a right relationship with God.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Genesis 1:26-28; 3:1-19; Romans 6:23; 3:23)
We believe salvation is a gift from God attained by grace through faith. The gift was made available through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We attain this gift through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The gift consists of forgiveness of sin, a reconciled relationship with God, and eternal life. We believe through the power of God a born again believer has a secure position in the family of God forever.
(Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Acts 17:30; Romans 10:9; John 10:27-29)
We believe that all who place their faith in Christ are immediately baptized by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual body of which Christ is the head. We believe the body (the church) exists to glorify God by world-wide proclamation that Jesus is Lord. We believe that Jesus Christ instituted two symbolic ordinances: baptism by immersion for all believers and the Lord’s Supper as a memorial of His death
(1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 1:22; Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:14-20)
