WHAT WE BELIEVE
Very simply, we believe that all people, period, are loved by God. We believe that the best life imaginable is one that is lived in tune with God and His heart. We believe that it is possible for us to have an incredible life here on earth and that when we die, we will spend eternity with Him.
We believe that God created all that is and that He loves His creation. We believe the first humans chose a path that was outside of God's design and it led to a brokenness in His perfect creation. We believe that God has been working to restore His creation and specifically came to earth as a man, Jesus Christ, to show His love in human flesh. We believe that He died and rose again to begin the process of heaven breaking into the here and now, and that He invites us to participate in this. We believe that with the help of His Spirit, our heart can be in alignment with God's heart and we can change the world.
We believe that Christ came to begin a movement, not another religion. We believe that the Church (worldwide), while it has done its best to fulfill the heart of God, has not always done so, and we long to be the Church that Christ intended us to be.
