WHAT WE BELIEVE
These are the things that we build our foundation on, as a community of believers
He is the creator of all things. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God longs for an intimate relationship with humanity.
He is the Son of God. He is equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus came to earth in human form. He was born to a Virgin, and lived as a perfect man. His death, burial and resurrection opened the only possible door for humanity to be free from sin and to live in relationship with God.
IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.
He is equal with the Father and the Son. The Holy Spirit is at work in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus. The fruit of the Spirit and His gifts fill our lives with the character and power of God. Only by His full involvement in our lives can we live a sinless life.
IN THE BIBLE.
It is the absolute truth of God, in written form. Penned by men, but dictated by God, to provide instructions for life that cannot be watered down, or altered to fit human agendas.
Every person ever born after the creation of man, has been and will be born into sin. Sin separates us from God, and ultimately brings death. Acknowledging before God the sin in our life, accepting the forgiveness that comes through the death of Jesus, and turning from our sin makes it possible for us to live in constant relationship with God
IN THE CHURCH.
A community of people forgiven of their sins now living for one purpose: to be like Jesus. As a community we are to reflect the character of Jesus by responding to the needs of those living around us, and ultimately pointing them toward a relationship with God.
IN THE RETURN OF CHRIST.
Jesus came to earth to live among men. He was crucified, died, buried, and came back to life according to God?s original plan to restore a spiritual relationship between Himself and humanity. Jesus ascended to heaven, with the promise that he would return making it possible for us to live in a face-to-face relationship with God forever.

We are a non-denominational gathering of about 50-75 followers of Jesus. We began in the summer of 2009 in a living room in Chattanooga and since then have moved to a coffee shop downtown. We believe that God is Father, Jesus is the Son of God, and Holy Spirit was sent to be our Helper. We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God for us to study. We believe that the Holy Spirit and the gifts He provides are still active. We believe in God's design for marriage & relationship as one of male and female. We believe that God is the god of life so we partner with him to see life for all: the unborn, babies, children, immigrants, women, men, all.
