Mission statement

Partnering with the community to serve those who are in crisis to restore them to freedom and purpose through the transforming power of the gospel. Currently our services are focused on those who are experiencing the crisis of hunger, homelessness, and hopelessness.

Statement of faith

The Scriptures - The Holy Bible (Old and New Testament) was written by men divinely inspired and is God's Revelation of himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction.

God - There is one and only one Living and True God. The eternal triune God reveals himself to us as Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

Man - Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. The gift of gender is thus part of the goodness of God's creation. Only the Grace of God can bring man into His Holy Fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation - Through the temptation of Satan, man transgressed the Command of God, and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, and are transgressors and are under condemnation.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the Believer. There is no Salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Last Things - God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in Glory to the Earth; The dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.

Stewardship - God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; All that we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a Holy trusteeship in the Gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions.

The Family - God has ordained the Family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.

Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.
