We Value the Bible
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of the living God and is our guide for all we do and believe.

We believe that the Bible is our primary tool and compass as to how we work and in leading people to understand who God is and to bring about personal life transformation.
Using the Bible we will endeavor to faithfully reach and teach the eternal, life transformational truths through all we do. Using the Bible we will affirm God’s direction for our lives and our ministry. Using the Bible we will navigate through all of life’s challenges, and all of the cultural changes which we will face.[/toggle]

Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe And all those who believed were together and had all things in common. praising God and having favor with all the people.

We will facilitate Biblical community through our work and lifestyle. We believe Biblical community is deepened through spending time with God’s people socially, in ministry, in discipleship and in times of personal distress.[/toggle]
