Our Vision:

We believe Gospel ministry and the Christian worldview can reshape society.


What would our communities look like if Christians cultivated the life-of-the-mind, lived courageously, and walked faithfully in this generation?


Christians are desperate for a place to discuss major issues and longing for healthy community. We are facing significant societal challenges. Our response to those challenges will shape the future for our children and generations to come. Are you ready to live boldly for Christ in your generation?

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative Word. It is without error in all its teachings, including creation, history, its own origins, morality, and salvation. Christians must submit to its divine authority, both individually and corporately, in all matters of belief and conduct, which is demonstrated by true righteous living.

We believe in one God, Creator and Lord of the Universe, the co-eternal Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary death on the cross, rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven where, as truly God and truly man, He is the only mediator between God and man.

We believe God has created each human being, embodied as a male or a female, in His image, and that this gives sanctity to all human life from conception to natural death and moral significance to our conduct of our bodies.

We uphold the institution of marriage as the exclusive union of one man and one woman and as the sole relationship designed by God for sexual intimacy, as delineated in the Bible, which teaches that marriage is rooted in creation and points to the union of Christ and His Church.

We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God except through the new birth. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone.

We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit for the individual’s new birth and growth to maturity, and for the Church’s constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power, and mission.

We believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Christians are called to gather as the church to worship God and witness concerning Jesus Christ, the Head of the church, preaching the gospel among all nations, demonstrating compassionate service to the needs of human beings, and promoting righteousness and justice.

We believe that Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion. God will fully manifest His kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and new earth, in which He will be glorified forever, and exclude all evil, suffering, and death.
