We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God.
We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit
We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God
We believe that salvation is by the sovereign grace of God
Though recognizing the challenges and limitations of time constraints and other factors such as a mixed group of participants (being in the faith or not), it is my vision and desire to have worship experiences and services to lead people into the presence of God in ways that attract all present to unite in hearts open to Him. I believe that worship should seek to lead people into encountering God's presence and therefore must be more than an effective production that appeals to a listening audience. Pursuing excellence and quality is fine but is done subserviently to the goal of divine encounters. Though the people present may not be able to enter in at the same level, I believe all present can discern the distinctive nature of the meeting.
We believe people need to be lead to be a growing people who are learning about and learning how to enjoy the wonder and power of God's presence. Since the ultimate goal is to unite God and worshipers the goal of worship services must be the same. Will the atmosphere created be 1) high quality music that celebrates God but is focused primarily on execution and presentation or 2) pursuit of His presence and a divine encounter that has effective musical support?
Often the discerning difference is in the impression on those present. In the first the production is praised and in the later God is. In the first people are awed by the ability of the worship leaders and band. In the later people are preoccupied and awed with God. If it comes to doing or choosing what will draw the crowd or "encounter the cloud" of God's manifest presence, I choose the later in hope of favor and wisdom as to how we might facilitate others to come and do likewise.
