STATEMENT OF FAITH

We are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that He is the way, the truth, and the life and He is alive. We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and is the truth from cover to cover. We believe that Jesus is who the Bible claims Him to be, the only way to salvation. We believe that the purpose of life is to love God and enjoy Him forever. We are to love Him with all of our heart (our love), our mind (the things we think about), and all of our strength (the things we do). In accordance to the teachings of Jesus contained in the Bible, we believe that the highest call of a follower of Christ is to love. We are to love our neighbors, our enemies, the poor, the widow, the orphan, the foreigner, and fellow believers. Our love is to be lived out loud in the way that we treat others in our daily lives. Our love is to be worked out within the context of relationships. Our philosophy is NOT to just argue or debate the truth, but instead to live it. Our mission is to love whoever God may bring into our lives so that they may experience the love of the Father, the life of the Son, and the liberty of the Spirit of God. We do not judge or condemn. We do not shoot the wounded. Instead, our desire is to inspire hope for the depressed and weary, to meet the needs of the opressed, and to bring freedom to the captive.
