We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is the supreme guide for life worth living, worship worth experiencing, and giving that reflects Jesus.

Prayer is speaking to God. If you love someone, you want to spend time with him or her, and you hang on to his/her every word. God wants to hear from us, even though He already knows what we need.

The Bible is God’s written Word and His love letter to all humankind. Therefore, we eagerly read and study it to hear His voice speaking to us by the Holy Spirit. Every true Believer should spend time daily in His Word. It is our Daily Bread!

Worship is ascribing worth to God. He is worthy of our highest praise, and our best praise. Worship is not just a duty to be fulfilled, but it is a pleasure to be enjoyed, and that we look forward to it weekly, or whenever we are able.

Baptism is immersion in water, and is an outward symbol or demonstration of the inward reality of Christ dwelling within every Believer. Baptism does not save. It is an act of obedience to the One who has already saved us.

Communion is a memorial meal we share with those who belong to the One who is no longer with us bodily, until He comes again. We do not serve a dead god, but a living Savior who paid for our sins by His sacrifice, which is by His death and resurrection. The Lord's Supper commemorates these truths. 

Fellowship is what we enjoy with each other now, in our gathering for worship, study, and sharing. We look forward to complete joy in His presence and with other Believers at the end of this journey.
