About Us

Our Commitments

Agape is a place to experience God’s love and His transforming power. We are committed to accurate biblical teaching and encountering God personally. In this church family, we grow together through vibrant worship, genuine relationships, studies in God’s word, prayers, training, service, and outreach missions. We believe in having an authentic faith, based on the lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of the Scriptures, and the love of the Church. We want the reality of Jesus Christ to be evident in the lives of our members.

About Us

"Agape" is pronounced "ah-GAH-pay." It is one of several Greek words translated into English as love.  This particular word refers to the unconditional and eternal love of God.

We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)

What we believe

We believe . . .

  • The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error. It is the supreme and final authority for all matters of Christian life and belief.
  • There is one true and living God, who eternally exists in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who are equal in every divine perfection and who execute distinct but harmonious offices in all the work of the Godhead.
  • Man was created by God in His own image, but through his sin incurred physical and spiritual death. As a result, all people are separated from God by their sin and are lost and without hope apart from salvation in Christ.
  • The Gospel is the good news of God’s saving actions towards sinners through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, the eternal son of God, took on human nature, lived a sinless life, and died a substitutionary death for sinners.
  • Salvation is a free gift that comes only by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. Anyone who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus Christ and His death on their behalf receives forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life.
  • The Holy Spirit works progressively to transform genuine believers more and more into the image of Christ. His work is carried on in our hearts through such appointed means as the study of Scripture, prayer, worship, and fellowship with other believers. The Holy Spirit also empowers believers for Christian witness and service and gives gifts for the building up of the body of Christ, the church.
  • The universal church, composed of genuine followers of Christ, exists to worship, serve, and glorify God.  All members of the universal church are to be vitally committed members of a local church, where they receive pastoral care and the opportunity to employ their God-given gifts in His service.
  • Jesus Christ will return to the earth, visibly and personally, to establish His kingdom in the new heavens and the new earth. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the saved to endless joy, living and reigning with Christ, and the lost to endless punishment away from the benevolent presence of God.
