Core Beliefs

  • We believe that Jesus is God. He was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, died and rose from the dead, bringing salvation and eternal life to those who put their trust in Him.
  • We believe the Bible is true. The Bible is the primary way we learn about Jesus and His teachings. We believe that God has kept lies from entering into His word and that we can trust what the Bible says.
  • We believe God loves art. His first act was creating the world out of nothing. Through all types of art we can reflect God, the original source of creativity, and point others to Him.
  • We believe the Church is to be unified. Each Christian has different gifts and talents given to them by God. By bringing together a diverse group of Christians we become stronger and can accomplish more for the Glory of God than we can do apart.
