TO KNOW WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE ARE TO DO
WE MUST KNOW IN WHOM WE BELIEVE AND WHY IT IS WE DO!
The entire Old & New Testament scriptures are the unchanging, inspired word of God. We hold it as the absolute authority in all matters pertaining to the Christian life & doctrine.
Psalm 119:89,105 // 2 Timothy 3:16 // 2 Peter 1:20-21 // Hebrews 4:12
There is one eternal God who created all things. He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, & God the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:13-17 // 1 John 5:7
The Holy Spirit is given to the believer at the time of salvation & is there to help us live victorious lives in Christ. He shouldn't be an after thought! Instead He is to have an active role in the life of every believer.
John 14:16-18 // Acts 1:8 // Acts 2:1-4
The bible states that Jesus is the way, the truth, & the life. Salvation is a free gift from God, received by grace through faith & cannot be earned by any human efforts.
John 14:6 // Ephesians 2:8-9
Without Jesus' resurrection, His story is merely just that, only a good story. The bible states that not only was Jesus raised from the dead, but because Jesus rose, now death is not the final say for any human being.
2 Corinthians 5:8 // Hebrews 6:2 // 1 Corinthians 15:12-23,55 // Romans 1:3-4
Each individual's decision to reject or accept salvation through Jesus Christ determines our eternal destination of either heaven or hell. John 3:16 // Romans 6:23
The process of allowing salvation to work from our "inner" life to our "outer" life is called sanctification. God is holy & righteous & He desires who we are & what we do to be a reflection of Him. 1 Peter 1:15-16 // Philippians 2:12 // Ephesians 4:11-15 // Romans 12:1-2
One provision of Jesus' finished work on the cross is healing for the believer, body & soul. Jesus declared that the Father's will for us is to enjoy abundant life & we believe this includes physical healing, received by faith in the scriptures.
John 10:10 // 1 Peter 2:24 // Mark 11:22-24
This is an ordinance given to believers to practice remembering Jesus' death & resurrection. The elements, usually bread & juice, are simply tokens that represent His body that was broken & His blood that was shed for our sins.
1 Corinthians 11:28-32 // Matthew 26:26-28
Jesus commanded that all who call on His name be baptized in water as an outward or public display of their faith. Baptism cannot save anyone, but it is an important part of leaving your old life behind to follow this new life in Christ.
Matthew 28:19 // Acts 2:37-39
You should expect to come to a place with no perfect people. A place where you will be accepted as you are - but know that Jesus will change you! A place that loves coffee, Jesus, & genuine community. You should expect to have fun in a super chill, laid back community.
Wear what you normally wear, just wear something is all we ask. Don't feel pressured to come in "church clothes." A lot of people just wear jeans or shorts & a t-shirt. Be you, that's all we ask.
This isn't your grandma's church. We have a live band that plays current worship music. We like our music loud & passionate. The messages are applicable to your life & not taught in "churchy" language.
Service starts at 10am & it is about 70-75 minutes. A lot can happen in under two hours.
We have a completely separate Kids experience that takes place at the same time the adult experience happens. It is a safe, clean, & fun space that is lead by background checked workers. Your kids are going to love it!
