The people of God have a story.  As a pastor, it is my responsibility to   understand our story; to never let the flock forget who we are.  We are created in the image of God and set apart for God to share His Gospel to a world in need of transformation.  We are called to be Christ-like and to passionately pursue a  life-long journey of transformation.  My philosophy of ministry is not about “I”, but about “We”- “We, who are in Christ Jesus.”  In my opinion, a pastor is a leader who promotes unity, speaks truth, and points to hope in the Triune God while   tending to the flock, creating a healthy atmosphere, and proclaiming Good News to all near and far.

WE BELIEVE in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

WE BELIEVE that human beings are born with a fallen nature, and are, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually


WE BELIEVE that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

WE BELIEVE that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.


WE BELIEVE that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

WE BELIEVE that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
