Our Basic Beliefs represent the most simple and foundational beliefs of Christian orthodoxy. They capture the basic contours of Christian theology.

WE BELIEVE:

  • the Scriptures are true, authoritative and sufficient.
  • there is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • all things exist for the glory of God.
  • all humanity—Christ excluded—is sinful by both birth and action.
  • the deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.
  • Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human.
  • Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin.
  • Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return.
  • there will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment.
  • only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.
 

Our staff is here to serve you. We exist to seek Jesus fully, surrender to him totally and share about him with joy. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

 
 

The Grove

grove (grohv), noun.  a small orchard or stand of fruit-bearing trees, especially citrus trees: a grove of lemon trees.

 
 

The vision of The Grove is to develop a community of people that are committed to bearing fruit. Jesus often spoke of bearing fruit as Christians; He even said, "I appointed you to go and produce fruit, and that your fruit should remain." As Christians it is our mission to bear fruit that lasts forever in the souls of men.
