"To help everyone become complete in Christ"

The Marks of Completion



We know and value God above all things, and demonstrate it in faith and obedience.

(Lk. 10:27; 1 Jn. 4:19)



Being honest before God and others, we allow the gospel to transform us.

(Gal. 2:20; Phil. 2:12-13)


in Community

We become more like Christ as we experience life in our church community.
(Gal. 2:20; Phil. 2:12-13)


the World

In Response to Christ's love, we share the truth and compassion of the gospel with everyone.

(Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)

What We Believe


We believe in one God who exists in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the Word of God and the ultimate authority in every area of life.

The Human Condition

We believe that God made mankind in His image, mankind fell into sin and the only path back to God is through faith in Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. Faith in Him and belief in His perfect life, sacrificial death on the cross and glorious resurrection provide the only way for people to be forgiven of their sins and reconciled with God.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully God and indwells those who have placed their faith in Christ. He convicts the world of sin, empowers, guides, illuminates, and equips Christians to live a life that honors God.

Christ's Return

We believe in the personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Eternal Destiny

We believe that God commands everyone to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth.
