We are a gospel-centered community that celebrates the life of Jesus.
We proclaim his death and we rejoice in his resurrection.
We believe we are only one small expression among the many healthy Churches in the Janesville area.
We desire to join in UNITY with area Churches who celebrate and remain centered on the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ and the Christian Faith.
We believe that in ESSENTIALS there is UNITY, in NON-ESSENTIALS there is FREEDOM, but in ALL THINGS THERE SHOULD BE LOVE. (Ephesians 4:2-6).
We believe in an eternal God who has always existed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1-2, John 1:1,14, Titus 3:4-7).
We believe in Jesus--God come in the flesh, who is the only Savior and Lord, having died for our sins according to the scriptures, was buried and raised on the 3rd day according to the scriptures (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, 1 Corinthians 15:3-7).
We believe the Holy Spirit is God Himself encouraging, guiding and transforming us in the way of Christ (2 Corinthians 13:14).
We believe that God, through His Spirit, calls the people He saves into discipleship with Christ.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. As a result, it is entirely authoritative and practical for "teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (Psalm 119; 2 Timothy 3:14-17)
We believe that though all human beings are created in the image of God and therefore valuable to God, sin has separated us from our perfect Creator (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; 6:23).
We believe that God desires a personal relationship with every human being (Luke 15; 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9).
We believe that salvation from our sin and for transformation is found only in Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 4:12).
We believe that salvation is a free gift received by personal faith and repentance which is confessed in Christian baptism (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-5, 23).
We believe the Spirit transforms the people He saves into the likeness of Christ (Luke 9:23; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
We believe the church is the family of God and the light of the world (Ephesians 2:19; 4:4-6; 5:8-10; 1 Peter 2:4-9).
We believe that every Christian is a disciple (follower), equipped by God's Spirit with specific gifts and sent into their world to love God, love people and make disciples. We don't all do the same thing but we do serve the same God, are members of the same Body and are empowered by the same Spirit (1 Corinthians 12).
We believe that Jesus will return and make all things new (Acts 1:11; 2 Peter 3: 8-14; Revelation 21:1-5).
