STATEMENT OF FAITH -
* We believe Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, lived, was crucified and on
the third day rose again to eternal life. He is seated at the right hand of God the Father who has given Him all power, dominion, and authority. His death and resurrection were for all to be redeemed
in His name, by His blood, for forgiveness of sins into fullness of life - now and for eternity.
* The Bible is God’s inerrant Word, our beliefs and doctrine are established upon it.
* We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and His working of signs, wonders and miracles on the earth today.
* We embrace a life-style of worship that is multi-cultural, interracial, and trans-generational in its expression. We hold a vision to establish the kingdom of God on earth, being integrally involved with our community, our state, our nation, and to all of the nations on earth.
OUR VISION -

We are intentionally and purposefully diverse as evidenced in: the Arts (graphic styles and music genres), speakers, ministries, and more – in order for everyone to know the love and acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:20; Ephesians 2:10)
Supernatural - ’Our message is not with wise persuasive words, but with the demonstration of God’s power, that our faith doesn’t rest on men’s wisdom, but on the power of God.’ (1 Corinthians 2:4) Through the baptism of the Holy Spirit we welcome His expression through His people evidenced in the gifts of tongues, prophecy, healing, miracles, signs, wonders and deliverance. As children of God moving in the supernatural should be natural Christian living. (Mark 16:20; Acts 14:3; 1 Corinthians 12:7-10; Hebrews 2:4)
