The Word of God

We are committed to understanding and obeying the whole counsel of God. We are committed to a careful exposition of the Scriptures using principles of Biblical interpretation to arrive at a correct understanding of God's Word. Additionally we are committed to applying the truths that we discover to our lives and the practices of the church. No traditions are sacred, but all that we do must be brought under the scrutiny of the Word of God to see whether it is pleasing to Him. We say as the Reformers did, "We are always reforming."

The Gospel of God

We are committed to proclaiming a God-centered gospel which originates with an awesome and holy God who does all things for His own glory. The gospel we are committed to is the good news that God saves sinners. God does not save the sinner with the sinner's help. He finds them in their depravity and inability, and by His sheer mercy and grace applies His saving grace effectually to their lives. When God by His grace purposes to save a sinner, there is no person, power or demon in the universe that can thwart Him.

The Worship of God

We are committed to worshipping God both in spirit and truth. We believe it is essential that our worship is offered in the spirit; thus we desire to be led by the Holy Spirit. This spiritual worship will allow believers freedom to express their adoration of God in all of the Biblical expressions of praise, as is appropriate. We also believe that our worship must be in truth because our worship of God can never go any deeper than our knowledge of God. Thus, we are committed to being rooted in solid theology and doctrine as the foundation for all our worship of God.

The Church of God

We are committed to living out our Christian lives in community. We see church life in the New Testament as a specific group of believers living in relationship to one another, rather than as an event to be performed at a special building. Thus, we are committed to learning to live out our Christian lives in a 7 Day A Week Christ-Centered Evangelistic Community. In this community, all believers are ministers, using their spiritual gifts to build up the body. We believe this community is best experienced in small, intimate groups meeting in homes. Thus, we place great importance in consistent participation and involvement in a house church.
