Our Values and Beliefs


We exist to saturate in the tangible presence of God, through His word, as it is written, and as it is spoken to us today, so that we can experience the fullness of God in the eternal here and now, and so that we can fulfill His purpose through us.


  • We value eternity-focused living

  • We value lifelong relationships with intentional living, with people and God

  • We value the process of learning to increase knowledge of God and the Bible

  • We value being a good host of God’s presence by seeking His heartbeat daily


  • We believe in salvation by grace, given by God

  • We believe that God is the Creator, and that He is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

  • We believe in the tangible presence of God

  • We believe in helping release people into their God-breathed purpose and vision

  • We believe in the restoration process by believing the unbelievable, and loving the unlovable

  • We believe that God wants us to have fun and enjoy doing His work

  • We believe in the "five-fold" ministries (Pastors, Evangelists, Teachers, Apostles, Prophets)

  • We believe that God's children are all wonderfully made, and appreciate different cultures and diversity of this world
