[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]EXPECTATIONS

A CHRIST-LIKE LIFESTYLE.

Biblical faith results in Christ-like actions. We apply Biblical truths to our personal liberties and modest appearance; not seductive, but attractive; not revealing, but appropriate; not offensive or extreme. Biblical faith is a result of the Spirit of God teaching the Word of God in the willing heart & mind of each individual.

A DETERMINATION TO BE “IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF THE WORLD.” 

We understand that the whole world is God’s vineyard and a place for ministry. We also recognize that the influences of the “world” must be identified and resisted. Therefore, we compassionately reach out to all with the gospel of Jesus Christ regardless of race, status or background while resisting the temptation to be conformed to the evil in the world.

A PRACTICE OF DISCIPLINE IN MIND, BODY & SPIRIT.

Study, physical exercise and the practice of the spiritual disciplines of Jesus are essential.
