ACTIVATE YOUR SALVATION
Salvation is God’s plan of saving you from the self-destruction of sin, by asking for, believing in, and as a result behaving in a manner that shows Jesus is in charge of your life. Salvation is a one-time grace (regeneration) and a daily active choice (sanctification). Engaging this decision of faith changes your present and eternity in alignment with God’s will.
DECLARE YOUR FAITH
Water baptism is an outward message to show friends and family your decision to trust Jesus as your savior.
EXPRESS YOUR FAITH
We gather in large groups following the early church model of singing and receiving a message from God’s word. The large gathering serves those who have not started their relationship with Jesus and prepares followers to engage the world the rest of the week.
EQUIP YOUR FAITH
Small groups allow for a growing connection with other followers of Jesus, to strengthen and apply your relationship with Jesus, and to transparently meet one another’s needs.
GROW YOUR FAITH
Build your faith with the actions you take personally to fuel and grow your relationship with Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Just as you could not go weeks and months avoiding a spouse or friend and believe you will grow in your relationship with them, so it is in your personal walk with Jesus.
LIVE YOUR FAITH
We believe serving others is one of the most effective ways to live out your faith. In a world focused on personal gain, there is no greater way to show others what a life devoted to Jesus is about.
TRUST YOUR FAITH
Everything we own or receive is a gift from God. When we trust God with our resources, he will use them to bring people into new and growing relationships with Jesus.
