Who We Are

OUR mission


Loving and building people to Champion the cause of Christ--winning our world one life at a time. 

 

"The people who KNOW their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits for God." 

Daniel 11:32

OUR VISION

 

 

We see a Church of CHAMPIONS who are..



  • Encouraged through relationships (in small groups)

  • Enriched in God's presence (as we believe in extravagant Praise and Worship)

  • Equipped by the Word of God (by the preaching of God's Word, Bible Study and Discipleship)

  • Engaged in ministry (by knowing your gifts and getting connected in ministry)

  • Empowered by the Holy Spirit (as you are taught and prayed for in order to be activated in the gifts of the Holy Spirit to accomplish God's plan)

  • Evangelize the world we meet everyday.

  • We aspire to accomplish this vision that God has given us with great enthusiasm as we strive for excellence!  We believe that these are the attitudes that best honor God in what we do for Him and His Kingdom.

 

OUR VALUES


Uncompromised Unity - We value a church living together in covenant relationships and flowing in corporate unity to fulfill God's purpose and plan for the church for that hour.



5-Fold Ministry - We value the 5-fold giftings (spoken of in Ephesians 4:12-16) and see them as consultants sent by the Lord not to do the job, but specifically to train and equip the Body of Christ to fulfill God's purposes through grass roots body ministry on earth.



Excellence -  We value excellence in life and ministry as the only attitude that honors God.



Leadership -  We value the empowerment and development of Spirit-filled leaders who will be strategically positioned and deployed within the Body of Christ while being launched to succeed and increase their influence within our community.



Wisdom - We value the pursuit of wisdom through the Word of God that directs us to a principle-focused, balanced and successful life.



Commitment - We value commitment through a partnership that is responsible to leadership and the vision of the house; demonstrated by regular attendance, generous giving and consistent dedicated involvement.



Team - We value teamwork that promotes a shared purpose and is expressed by people of diverse social, economical and cultural status connected as the family of God.

Raising up Champions to do mighty exploits for God.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe that there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death, and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."

We believe that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing, and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and adopts us as we enter the kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

We believe in the ongoing, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4, is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses.

We believe in the victorious, redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy – sin, lies, sickness, and torment.

We believe that the Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His Church the ordinances of baptism and communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, and discipling the nations – baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride – the Church.

We believe that heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the lost and the saved, the one to everlasting death and the other to everlasting life.
