Our beliefs & Values

What you believe and value is important for determining who you are. The same is true for a church body. Our core beliefs come from our fellowship with the Assemblies of God, and we commit to four key values that guide how we fulfill our mission as the church: Worship, Word, Discipleship, and Mission. For a more detailed explanation of our beliefs, please click here.

  • Worship

    We Believe in worshiping God with all our heart and soul. Therefore, we value spiritually inspiring worship and giving place to your personal interaction with God.


  • WORD

    We Believe in worshiping God with our mind. Therefore, we value biblically focused services which engage with the renovating truths of Scripture in an intelligent and systematic fashion.


  • DIscipleship

    We Believe in worshiping God with all our strength. Therefore, we value an atmosphere where you and your family can engage in a comprehensive life with Christ and become active participants in God’s work here on earth.

  • mission

    We Believe in worshiping God by loving our neighbors as ourselves. Therefore, we value opportunities to reach our community and the world for Christ.
