Our Mission

GROW closer to God’s Son

EQUIP God’s people

SHARE God’s Good News

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit; the Church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Our Belief

We Believe: Jesus Christ is the world’s singular saving Lord. No one comes to the Father but through Him. The Bible is God’s holy Word. Christians are called to live a holy life, which includes the biblical standard of chastity in singleness and fidelity in marriage. Since all fall short of the Glory of God, all are accepted and ministered to in the name of Jesus Christ
