Beliefs & Vision

What We Believe
We are affiliated with the Missionary Church U.S.A., an evangelical denomination spread across the world. We believe the good news that the Creator God sent His eternal Son, Jesus, to become a man, show us what God is like, take the punishment for our sins by dying on a cross, and rise from the dead. When a person trusts in Jesus as her Lord and Savior, she is completely pardoned of all her sins forever, given the perfect resume of Jesus, filled with God's Holy Spirit as His child, and promised eternal life with God. We also believe that the Bible is God's message to us, without error.
