Discipleship is at the heart of everything we do. These are our core values, our highest vision and our relentless mission. We define discipleship by five markers.
Baptism - Disciples follow Jesus into the water.
Connect - Disciples connect with other disciples

Discipleship and Outreach
Checking out a new church can be tough, you don't always know what you're getting yourself into. Let us help put your mind at ease.
You'll notice pretty quickly that we sing without instruments. It's a part of our Church of Christ heritage. We love to sing and we love hearing voices of all people worship God together.
We believe in prayer. During a couple of songs our elders are in different parts of the room and there's an open invitation to share your concerns and joys with them in prayer.
The sharing of communion (grape juice and bread) is an important focal point of our service. It's generally a quiet, contemplative time where we reflect on the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
-What to expect-
We do take up an offering but don't worry, we don't expect our guests to give unless they want to. Just sit back and enjoy the service.
We do have options for the kids! During the service we have Kingdom Club and a staffed nursery. So babies to Kindergarteners have a place to go. They're always welcome to stay with you as well. Plus, right outside the Worship Center entrance we have a quiet room if the little ones just need a break.
Finally, we deeply value learning about Jesus. Our messages typically focus us more deeply on what it means to be a follower of Jesus. We try to keep it interesting and relevant because Jesus is always interesting and relevant!
Our Core Beliefs
There is one eternal God who exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God created all that exists, and he cares for and is committed to the world he has made. He is holy and exalted and lives in “unapproachable light.” Yet he also lives with the “contrite and lowly in spirit” and is “an ever-present help” in times of trouble. John 3:16; Romans 8:18-23; Isaiah 57:15; Psalm 46:1
Jesus Christ is the human incarnation of God. He lived a perfect life, died for our sins, was bodily raised from the dead, and ascended to heaven where He now sits at the right hand of the Father. Jesus is the sovereign Lord. He is coming again to judge the world and to save those who put their trust in him. He alone can rescue us from the destruction caused by sin. John 1:1, 14; Colossians 2:9; Acts 2:36; Philippians 2:6-11; Hebrews 12:2; Acts 4:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10
The Holy Spirit has been sent to testify about Jesus Christ. He lives within Christians, bringing new life, holiness, and assurance of salvation. John 15:26; Galatians 4:6; Titus 3:5-6; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Ephesians 1:13-14
The Bible is the inspired word of God and bears witness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The human authors who penned the various books and letters that make up the Bible were guided by the Holy Spirit to speak the words of God, so that Scripture is authoritative for our faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:15-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 5:39-40; Luke 24:44-49
Salvation is a gift from our gracious God, accomplished through the atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross. We receive this gift by believing in the Savior, Jesus Christ. Tangible expressions of our faith are repentance and baptism (immersion in water) for the forgiveness of sins. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:7; Acts 2:38
The church includes all those who have been saved by Christ. The Lord Jesus desires that his people be unified, that they love one another, and that they spread the good news about Jesus. John 17:20-23; 13:34-35; Matthew 28:18-20
