Our Mission, Vision, and Core Values

Our Mission: To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

There is no greater joy than to know forgiveness. When Jesus Christ died on the cross He did not die for His own sin, He died for our sins. Through His shed blood we can know that we have eternal life. We read in 1 John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe in the name of the Son of God.”
 
Forgiveness does not come because you earn it nor does it come because of a religious ceremony. The Bible tells us that it is a free gift. Forgiveness comes by receiving Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for your sins. You must receive forgiveness by faith. John 1:12 says, “But to as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in His name.”
 
We have all sinned. Sin separates us from God, but God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross to pay for the sins that we have committed. If you will receive His gift, you can know that your sins are forgiven, and that you have a place prepared for you in heaven

Vision: Cyclical Teaching

Our vision is to teach the Word of God to people who will also be able to teach others. We do not believe in teaching merely to impart knowledge. Many churches teach the Bible; our goal is to enable you to reach and teach others for Christ. This leads to our teaching cycle:
 
 
CoreValues
 
  • Conversion. Coming to know of the death of Jesus Christ for my sin.
  • Communion. Learning of Him, and drawing closer day by day in fellowship with Him.
  • Conviction. Developing Bible teaching (doctrine) that becomes a conviction within us.
  • Commitment. Using that knowledge to serve others.
  • CompassionLoving the lost and teaching what we have learned to them.
 
When we teach others what we know, we are in obedience to the Great Commission. The Lord told us to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”  (Matthew 28:19, 20a) Therefore, it is not enough to know about Him. We must make Him known to others.
 
 

Core Values

Our core values include the five fundamentals of the faith:
  • We believe the Bible is the Word of God and is without error. 
  • We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, virgin born.  He died on the cross and offers to us a free gift of eternal life          through His substitutionary atonement (that is, taking the punishment we deserve).
  • We believe He will return for His own at the rapture and then will come to this earth again to set up a thousand year          kingdom.
  • We believe in a literal heaven and hell and know that those with Christ will be saved,  and those without Christ will             spend an eternity in the lake of fire.
  • We also believe that those who receive Christ are eternally secure and cannot lose their eternal life.
