1We are a community of believers gathered in the name of Jesus Christ. We believe that he is the only begotten Son of God the Father, and he was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, and he came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.

2As Jesus’ disciples, we believe that the Bible is God’s holy and inspired word, infallible in truth. God doesn’t make mistakes.

3For us, and for people of like faith, the Church is the body of Jesus Christ, and the visible Church is the assembly of people who have confessed faith in Jesus Christ, and who gather for the faithful preaching of God’s word and for the faithful  observance of the ordinances of baptism and Holy Communion.

4Our purpose is to carry out the Great Commission: To make Christian disciples of all people, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and on the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey the word of God.

5As Christ’s loving disciples, we show his love through educational programs and financial assistance wherever deemed necessary to lift our neighbor. As a progressive ministry, we are committed to political and social activism in our community.

6As a ministry, we strive for excellence because we serve an excellent God.
