1. What time does church start?
We believe that everything starts and stops with the Holy Bible. That's because it is the Word of God. As such, we turn to Ephesians 4:5 which teaches us that there is one Lord, one Faith and one Baptism
-One Lord: There is only one Lord and He revealed himself to mankind in multiple ways. Whether as the Father (Creator of all things), as the Son (Jesus Christ the Messiah), or as the Holy Spirit (inhabiting of the Spirit), we are called to worship One God.
-One Faith: There is only one faith and that faith is built on the original teachings of scripture that were given to the Apostles in the book of Acts and further taught by those same Apostles through out the rest of the New Testament.
-One Baptism: There is only one baptism and as Jesus himself taught in John chapter 3, so did the Apostles continue to teach in Acts 2:38 and onward. That one baptism has two parts. The first part, is full immersion in water, in the Name of Jesus Christ for the removing of our repented sins. The second part, is the baptism of the Holy Spirit as experienced by the Apostles and many believers in the book of Acts. This experience was fully demonstrated by the miracle of speaking in tongues, also clear in the book of Acts. Both parts are essential to complete our new birth. This is of utmost importance because our new birth is what brings us into the Kingdom of God
Because we know that the Holy Spirit does still fill and dwell in individuals, we also know that the Holy Spirit will be manifested and move in other ways. These ways are called the Gifts of the Spirit. These gifts, are truly miraculous and encompass a wide variety of areas as taught by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians chapter 12. These gifts are granted for the building up and helping of the Kingdom of God. We desire the best gifts God will bestow, in order for us to be the best church we can be.
3. What should I wear?
We are personally working to be the best version of ourselves, while still being ourselves. We think it reasonable to expect the same from you. We understand and appreciate that no two people are exactly alike. As a part of God's masterful design for mankind, we actually embrace that. Personality, big ideas, quirks, talents, kids that make funny faces then follow those faces up with funny noises... They are all part of God's masterful design. We look forward to sharing ours with you and so you should look forward to sharing yours with us.

2. What do you believe?
Let's state the obvious first, clothes. Seriously though, you should dress as you are comfortable while remembering that you are spending time with your Lord and Savior.
If you prefer to dress in your Sunday best, you will find many of us do as well. If you prefer a more casual attire, you will not be alone in that either. Honestly, we will be glad to see you either way, especially if you are dressed.
You should expect the same thing we expect. We expect God to show up and move. Why do we expect that? He promised to honor our faith in Him. He promised to inhabit the praises of His people. He promised to be with people who seek Him. When God honors faith, when God inhabits a place, when God responds to someone seeking Him, great things happen. Everything we do, including our prayers, our Sunday school classes, our worship time, our evangelistic preaching or our church and community work is driven by these promises. We want God to show up and do mighty things for us and through us. If you want the same thing then your expectation is the same as ours and you should feel right at home.
