Who We Are  |  What We Believe

Our faith is rooted in the Holy Bible and our love for the Lord Jesus Christ …and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1). We believe that the Lordship of Jesus Christ should be the foundation of each of our lives, and of our church. We believe in a personal relationship with the Lord, as our founder John Stevens outlined in his foundational message, To Be a Christian. Below are some of the main points that we hold as truths, by which we live our lives. If you would like more information, an expanded version is available here.

We believe…

  • The Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of the living God.
  • God sent His Son Jesus Christ to redeem us from sin and death and to give us eternal life through repentance and faith in Christ Jesus.
  • The worship of God is a daily action of bowing ourselves down spiritually before Him and exalting Him above all else in our lives.
  • Each of us can attain to …the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13.
  • The Body of Christ is comprised of many diverse members, all of whom share an important need for, and an interdependent relationship with, each other.
  • God sets individuals into His Body and under His authority as it pleases Him (I Corinthians 12:12, 18).
  • The book of Acts and the New Testament epistles comprise the model for how the Church of Jesus Christ is to be organized and operated.
  • In practicing a daily lifestyle that expresses the biblical principles we believe and teach.
  • In preserving and publishing the Word of God spoken in our generation.
  • In providing solid academic training to our youth in an atmosphere of love, faith and impartation.
  • In positively impacting our local neighborhoods and communities.
