Our core beliefs are:
God Is Sovereign
We are neither captains of our ships nor masters of our fates. "The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak" (Isaiah 40:28-29).
Jesus Is Lord
"Jesus is Lord" (Romans10:9)
The Holy Spirit lives within us (Romans 8:9-11). Our hearts are set upon what He desires (Romans 8:5-6).We crave His filling ( Ephesians 5:18). Since our spiritual lives are dependent upon Him, we diligently try to match our steps with His (Galatians 6:25).
Faith And Practice
People Need Jesus
We really do. For salvation (John 4:42; Ephesians 5:23; Titus 3:6). For meaning (Matthew 16:24-26). For eternity (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). And we have the incredible privilege of telling the world about Him. (II Corinthians 5:17-2 1). Thank you Father, for your Son, Jesus Christ!
