“He shall cover thee with His feathers and under His wings shall thou trust.” Psalm 91:4
We are a body of believers who passionately seek to Love God, Love People and Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
What we believe
God: We believe in the Trinity: There is one God and He is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God is good and desires a relationship with man.
The Father: He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He created man in love and in His own image for the purpose of fellowship. After man’s fall and rebellion, He sent His own Son to destroy the works of the devil and make a way for a restored relationship with man.
The Son: Jesus is the beloved Son of God who was with the Father and Holy Spirit from the beginning. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sin by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days, conquering death and demonstrating His power over sin and death.
The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is God, who was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He comforts and sustains believers and empowers them for service and witness, cleanses man from the old nature and conforms us to the image of Christ. The baptism in the Holy Spirit releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible: We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God. It is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof and contains all that is needed for Christian beliefs and conduct.
Salvation: God walked with man in perfect relationship, but through the sin of one man (Adam), all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Death was the result of the broken relationship. The good news is that God sent His only Son to redeem us. Christ’s death on the cross paid the penalty for all sin. We could not have restored our relationship with God by our self-improvement or good works, but only through receiving the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
The Christian Life: In response to God’s love for us, we can’t help but love Him and love others. With joy, we obey His command to make disciples of all people. He calls us to a life of intimacy with Him through worship, prayer, Bible study, and serving others. We believe the chief end of humanity is to love God and enjoy Him forever

Virtual Communion Liturgy
Pastor: The Lord be with you. People: And also with you.
Pastor: Lift up your hearts. People: We lift them up to the Lord.
Pastor: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. People: It is right to give our thanks and praise.
Pastor: It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven we praise your name and join their unending hymn:
Pastor and People: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
Pastor: Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ. By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection you gave birth to your Church, delivered us from slavery to sin and death, and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit.
On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread, gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
When the supper was over, he took the cup, gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said: “Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,
poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.
Pastor and People: Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again
Pastor: Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood. By your Spirit make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory and we feast at his heavenly banquet.
Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and forever. Amen.
Let us pray the Lord’s prayer:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
The body of Christ, given for you. Amen.
The blood of Christ, given for you. Amen.
