Mission
To help people become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
Vision
See what God can do through you.
Message
Jesus is the aim for everything we say and do.
Values
We believe that it should be easy for you to find your place and discover your purpose. That’s why we focus everything we do around what we call The 5 G’s: Gatherings, Groups, Generations, Generosity, and Growth.
 
1. We Are For Everyone (Gatherings)
Our heart is for ALL people. We believe that everyone was created on purpose, for a purpose.  Everyone matters to God, therefore everyone matters to us. We will not make it difficult for people to experience the love and grace of Jesus.  
 
2. We Are Better Together (Groups)
We believe that true life change happens in circles. We are created for community and were never designed to go through life alone. We aren’t a building, we are Family.  
 
3. We Invest into the Next Generation (Generations)
We are committed to raising up the next generation to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. We are “Orange”. Orange is a strategy that combines two critical influences in a kid’s and student’s life, Home and Church, to demonstrate the message of Jesus.
 
4. We Believe Generosity is a Privilege (Generosity)
We are committed to being contributors, not consumers. God has given richly towards us, it’s our honor to give back to Him. We don’t have to, but we “get to” be generous with our time, talents and treasure.  
 
5. We Expect to Grow (Growth)
We are committed to being a light in a dark world, by sharing the message of Jesus. We will do whatever it takes, short of sin, to reach people far from God. We are committed to helping people become “FIT”: Spiritually, Relationally, Emotionally, Physically, and Financially.
 
 
Beliefs
The Trinity
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
 
The Father
We believe that there is only one living and true God, who exists in three distinct persons- God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three, the Trinity, are equal in essence and distinct in function (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).
 
The Son
Jesus is completely human, but at the same time completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people far from God back into right relationship with God. Jesus lived a perfect life so that He could be the substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He received the punishment for our sins when He died on the cross satisfying God’s wrath, and defeating death in His resurrection so that we could all have life.
 
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit assures us of our relationship with Jesus. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Jesus.
 
The Bible
The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.
 
Humanity
We were all created in the image of God and are the supreme object of His creation. We were created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort.
 
Salvation
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
 
The Church
The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Jesus. It is committed to the teachings of Jesus and seeks to obey all of His commands, working together in love and unity, and seeking to bring the Gospel to the world.
