Vision & Values
We value loving God through word and action; we value God’s Word as the ultimate authority; we value growing together as an international body of believers.
What We Believe
Christ is wholly God (Titus 2:13) and was wholly man (John 1:14, Romans 5:15), born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18-20) into the world without sin (2 Corinthians 5:21) as the substitute mankind’s sin (1 John 4:10).
About the Holy Spirit
Salvation is a free gift by grace through faith in Christ, not by works (Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16-17, Romans 3:23-24, John 14:6). Salvation is received by belief in the heart and confession with the mouth through prayer (Romans 10:9-10).

About the Church
The church is a local, visible group (Acts 11:26) of saved, baptized believers (Acts 2:47) that are covenanted together (Acts 2:42) to carry out the the Great Commission, which is the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and making disciples in all nations (Matthew 28:19-20).
About Church Leadership Positions
God established the positions of a pastoral elder (i.e., bishop, elder, or overseer) and deacon (Philippians 1:1, 1 Timothy 3:1, 1 Peter 5:1-5). God also specified qualifications for these leadership positions. A man must fit these qualifications in order to serve in a church leadership position (Titus 1:5-9, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Timothy 3:8-13).
Baptism is a command that Jesus Christ gave to His church with salvation by faith n Christ alone being the only prerequisite for baptism. The scriptural method described in the Bible is immersion. A person is baptized to publicly identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and to testify of their decision to live as a child of God.
About the Lord’s Supper
The Lord’s Supper is observed by a church body to remember the body and blood of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for our sin.
