We want intimacy with Father. Moses had it. David had it. Jesus had it. We have it. It is so sweet too. Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” We know how good it is to be close to Father and to know him intimately. Our hope and prayer is that everyone whom we come into contact with gets to experience that closeness with Heavenly Father through the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross and the victorious resurrection.
Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19,
1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14
We look at Jesus with unveiled faces! We are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18)! Jesus is our victorious savior, our first fruit, our elder brother, our example. We never take for granted what he did on that cross and in the resurrection. He restored us to health. He made it possible for us to enter into the Holy of Holies. He gave us a position in Him. He made intimacy possible between us and Father. He dealt with sin. We look at him and reflect Him and marvel at Him and love Him.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13
We believe in relationship with Holy Spirit. We believe in the gifts and seek to see them in use at all times. We walk with Holy Spirit. We partner with Him as He brings the culture and atmosphere of Heaven to earth. We are always growing in submissive and vulnerable obedience to Him and his promptings. There are no limits! We do what he says. We want to see the Kingdom realized here on earth, just like Jesus taught his disciples to pray, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Walking with Holy Spirit is always an adventure. Partnering with Holy Spirit is always powerful. Bringing the culture and atmosphere of Heaven is always good!
2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:13, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12,
We believe in the Priesthood of the Believers (1 Peter 2:9). Every son and daughter of God, no matter age, has been given the Spirit. Together, as one body, we do the work of the ministry of the Church--inside and out. The gifts of the Spirit have been given in fullness and we operate in them for the glory of the Kingdom of God. All of life counts. Our families, our employment, our rest, our hobbies-literally every second of our life should be dedicated
to the expansion of the Kingdom.
The Bible is God's Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is a direct communication from God to mankind. In it we discover His character, voice, and heart. Also, as we develop a relationship with the scriptures they point to Jesus--The Word made flesh.
