The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.
(Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16)
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19)
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good: He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.
(Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6 John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4)
Jesus Christ is completely human, but at the same time completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He received the punishment for our sins when He died on the cross to satisfy God’s wrath. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we could have life.
(Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16; Hebrews 1:1-3; 4:14-15; 12:2; 13:8; 1 John 4:14-15)
His presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth, and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgement. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
(Genesis 1:2; Psalms 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Lk 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
(John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15)
We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word.
(Rom. 13:13, 14; Gal. 5:13; Titus 2:11–15 ;John 6:37–40, 10:27–30; Rom. 8:1, 38, 39; 1 Cor. 1:4–8; 1 Peter 1:5)
We believe that God has given every follower of His spiritual gifts to be used as a platform to point people to Him. It is, however, the believer’s responsibility to develop their spiritual gift(s). The baptism of the Holy Spirit occurs at conversion and is the placing of the believer into the Body of Christ. We also believe that particular spiritual gift(s) are neither essential, nor do they prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, nor are an indication of deep spiritual experience. We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted. We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to use their gifts according to the grace of God that is given to him.
(Rom 12:1–8; 1 Cor. 13; 1 Peter 4:10–11) (1 Cor. 12:7, 11, 13; Eph. 4:7–8)(John 15:7; 1 John 5:14, 15)
We believe that the Church is the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual community made up of people who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that the establishment of the local church is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures . We believe in the autonomy of the local churches, free of any external authority and control . We recognize believer’s baptism and the Lord’s supper as the scriptural sacraments of the church
(Matt. 28:19, 20; Acts 2:41, 42; 18:8; 1 Cor. 11:23–26) (Eph. 1:22, 23; 5:25–27; 1 Cor. 12:12–14; 2 Cor. 11:2) (Acts 14:27, 18:22, 20:17; 1 Tim. 3:1–3; Titus 1:5–11) (Acts 13:1–4, 15:19–31, 20:28; Rom. 16:1, 4; 1 Cor. 3:9, 16; 5: 4–7, 13; 1 Peter 5:1–4)

Our Core Values
Our call as a church is to EMPOWER, which means
we“make disciples” and “develop leaders.”- Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We make it a point to NOTICE what others look past.
– Matthew 9:36- “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
We do not live fearfully based on our lack, but boldly
and GENEROUSLY based on God’s provision. As He gave, we give.
– John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
We ADAPT to the season, culture, or situation we are in.
– 1st Corinthians 9:22 “I have become all things to all men, that I might by all
means save some.
People are looking to belong somewhere where people
are real. In a world full of fakes and counterfeits, our goal at Engage
is to be an authentic church.
– John 8:32 “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
We EXPECT more than others think is possible.
– Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be
glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
We RISK more than others think is wise.
– 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love
and of a sound mind.
We keep it SIMPLE, but focused.
– Acts 4:12 “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under
heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
