|What We Believe
We are a non-denominational New Testament Church. What
roots we have would be from the “Restoration Movement” in the 1800’s. No book

Christ in His death and Resurrection.

presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a Comforter, Guide, Helper, and

extension of Jesus Christ’s character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our
