What We Believe
We believe the bible is the infallible word of God, and that it was written under the divine inspiration of God. It is useful to teach us what is true and make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work according to (2Timothy 3:16-17, NLT).
We believe that salvation is received by our faith in Jesus Christ and that he died on the cross and shed his blood for our sins. We believe that God raised Him from the dead. By our repentance and confession we receive salvation according to (Romans 10:9).
We believe that water baptism identifies the believer with Jesus Christ death, burial, and resurrection. We believe this symbolizes the death to an old way of living and resurrection to a new life in Jesus Christ, according to (Romans 6:3-4).
We believe in the receiving of the Holy Spirit for the empowerment to witness and for the service of God, according to (Acts 1:8).
Believe in: Means much more than intellectual awareness or agreement. It means to trust in, to rely on, and cling to.
The Journey:
But they delighted in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither and they prosper in all they do. ( Psalms 1:2-3)
The seed starts off small yet it has the potential to blossom into something great. The Seed class is nine months course design to bring each student into a closer relationship with God. In the SEED class you will study the foundational truths of the bible, which include but not limited to ( Understanding God, Gods Covenants with man, and The Sacraments of the church).
The roots carry water and nourishment through out the tree.
The Roots class consist of building our lives upon Christ and extracting the nutrients we need to lead a healthy Christian life. Colossians 2:6-7 NLT, states: And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow Him. Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (COMING SOON)

The branches are an extension of the trunk. This class is design to empower each leader to go out an effectively touch the lives of people in the community to compel them to come to Christ. (COMING SOON)
The fruit are a result of the seed. This class is design to bring all classes full circle. Upon completion of this class certification will be granted for active leadership. (COMING SOON)
