THE TRINITY: God is One and manifests Himself in three persons - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is equal in their power and authority.  
Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 16:13-15; John 17:11; Romans 8:9-11; Philippians 2:6; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19

GOD THE FATHER: God is the good Father who shows love, compassion, and faithfulness to His people and HIs promises. God is the Father of Jesus Christ; the Father of the Church; and the one who sent the Word. God is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, and unchanging.
Exodus 3:14; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 1:1-3; 14; John 3:16; John 16:28; Romans 3:3-4; 2 Corinthians 1:3; Ephesians 3:14-15

GOD THE SON: Jesus Christ is the Word of God in the flesh. He existed with the Father from the beginning of time. Jesus came to this earth fully human and fully God. He is the only way that mankind can enter into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have everlasting life.
Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; John 1:1; Acts 2:22-24; Romans 8:1-3; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 2:5-6

GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT: Proceeds from the Father and the Son and is Eternal.  The Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives assures us of our relationship with Christ. He convicts us of our sin and is also our great comforter. He comforts us, produces fruit in our lives, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Jesus. The Holy Spirit who dwells in us, and completely fills our lives with His presence, allows us to live each day with the resurrection power of Jesus. 
Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; Isaiah 61:1-3; Luke 1:35; John 16:7-14; Acts 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17

THE BIBLE: The Bible is the inspired Word of God to all people. It is the product of holy men and women who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth and is relevant to our daily lives. The Bible equips us for every good work. 
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:21

MAN: Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God. Through Adam’s transgression and fall from grace; sin entered into man. Every person is fearfully and wonderfully made, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and love. 
Genesis 1:26-27; Psalms 8:3-6; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:14; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22

SALVATION: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifest on the earth, as a man, that He might undo the work of the devil and redeem man back to God. He did this through shedding His blood by means of His sacrificial death on the cross. Salvation is the gift of God to man and comes through faith in Jesus Christ. Man's first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that produces repentance.  The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, it produces eternal life. 
Isaiah 1:18; 1 John 3:8; Galatians 3:13, John 3:3-5; Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 John 5:12; Romans 1:16-18; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 2 Corinthians 7:10

THE CHURCH: The church is the hope of the world. The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Jesus. The church is committed to furthering the Gospel of Jesus and making disciples of all the nations. The Church works together in love and unity so that this world will know the love and saving grace of Jesus.
Matthew 16:18-19; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 1 Corinthians 7:17; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3

WATER BAPTISM: Baptism in water by immersion is commanded by Jesus; who was baptized Himself by John. Water baptism is a rite to be experienced by those who have received salvation. Baptism is a symbol that identifies us with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. 
Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:11-12; Acts 8:36-39


AUTHENTICITY: We want to be real, share our struggles, share our victories, encourage others, and have an attitude of accountability.  
James 5:16 (MSG) Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.

BIBLE ENGAGEMENT: The Bible is good for forming our beliefs, showing us the way to go, helping us get back on track, and changing our lives from the inside out.
2 Timothy 3:15–17 (MSG) …There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. 17 Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.

CURRENT COMMUNICATION: We embrace the message of the Bible and we seek to get that message out using teaching, life-experiences, and joyful worship.  
Ecclesiastes 12:10 (MSG) The Quester did his best to find the right words and write the plain truth.

DOING LIFE TOGETHER: In community you pray for each other, serve with one another, have fun together, grow together, and experience life together.
Hebrews 10:24–25 (MSG) Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, 25 not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.

EXCELLENCE: We do our level best in all that we do, whether it’s our communication and music, the greeting in the parking lot, the FREE coffee and treats in our clean building, or the way we have ministry for the whole family.
Philippians 4:8 (MSG) Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.

FAITH: Faith in Jesus Christ is the firm foundation that makes life worth living and because of our faith in Christ, we can find hope, joy, peace, and abundant life!
Romans 15:13 (MSG) Oh! May the God of great hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!

GROWTH: We want you to grow in your love for God, love for others, and your desire to make an impact right where you are.
Ephesians 3:16–19 (MSG) I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—17 that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, 18 you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! 19 Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
