We believe you will find a home here. All of us have. If you’re looking for the perfect church, we’re not it! We’re all working through our own stuff, relying on the love and grace of God. This is a place you can belong before you believe.
We all need to grow and mature, and we’re never done. The Apostle Paul calls us to “grow up in every way into… Christ” (Ephesians 4:15). These 10 Core Convictions both challenge us and inspire us.
- God’s Glory is Our Joy: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
- Lost People Matter to God & He Wants Them Saved: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10).
- We Need One Another: “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25).
- Knowing & Living God’s Word is Vital: “It is written, “ ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’ ” (Matthew 4:4).
- All Things By Prayer: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18).
- Each One is Gifted to Serve: “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10).
- All We Have Belongs to God: “God himself gives all men life and breath and everything else” (Acts 17:25).
- Healthy Things Grow & Multiply: “The one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” (Matthew 13:23).
- We Must Rely on the Holy Spirit: “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25).
- Faith Takes Risks: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
