Transforming Lives by making Disciples of Jesus Christ.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to follow all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:19-20 (NASB)
Our BeliefsThe Apostles' Creed
We believe in God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord—who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
