We are a church that has a special calling and anointing to young people. We believe young people are our future and we take serious our calling to invest in young people.
We honor God's Word and we believe it. If God said it, we believe it and that settles it. Our faith is ever-increasing. We feed on God's Word. We put His Word first in our lives.
We receive from God by grace and through faith. We stretch our faith. We are ever learning and ever growing. Our faith works by love. We sow God's word into the lives of those around us. We have the spirit of faith.
We are passionate lovers of God. God's love for us is our foundation. We desire to continue to know the breadth and length and height and depth of His love. We strive to grow in our love to others.
We believe that the core of everything we do is prayer. We develop and constantly grow in our prayer life. We acknowledge there are many different kinds or prayer, and the base of all prayer is fellowship with the Father. We lay down our lives in prayer.
Matt 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
James 5:16 The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Mark 11:23-24 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Every Member a Minister
We believe that the ministry of the church is not to be done by only a select few, but that every member is called to be a minister.
We believe worship from our heart is not something we do once or twice a week it is the way we live. We understand worship and praise is a vital part of our ministry. As we spend time in God's presence we are changed and as we lead others to God's presence they are changed.
We are ever thankful for the Holy Spirit and His operation in our lives. We are thankful for His presence and His gifts that are given for the benefit of the Body of Christ.
