Traditionally when someone clicks on the “what we believe” tab, they find a bunch of doctrines and dogma. Here at TPC we are not very good at tradition. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for the sins of the world.
Isn’t that Enough? Ok, here’s a bit more.
WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, AND THAT HE DIED FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for the sins of the world. Isn’t that Enough?
We believe that Christ is the heartbeat of all we do. From outreach to in-reach, we believe that God sent his only Son to not just die for us but to give us new life in abundance, to the fullness, until it overflows! We know that we were guilty of sin and Christ became the ransom and paid the ultimate sacrifice, which was his life for us
Our mission is to win and disciple imperfect people for the perfect work of Christ. God made man in “His” image. That means he cares about people and so do we. We are committed to pulling God given/ perfect potential out of imperfect people
In Matthew 25 Jesus said that when he was hungry, naked, in prison, and sick, that we as a church met his needs. Confused, (because that was 2000 years ago), he said when we do that for our community, we do that for him. We are committed to holding up our end of this commandment to our community.
We are increasingly becoming more and more diverse and we love it. We are blessed with all types of unique backgrounds, burdens, and baggage, yet with similar dreams and desires. From the corporate executive or the excommunicated we all are an ex-something. Having this much diversity is a glimpse of what Heaven will look like.
Some people have minimized heaven to a fairytale, a myth, or mystical place to escape the hell on earth. While many try to minimize it, we maximize the reality that Heaven is real. Try as you might to get there through morality, religion, and other acts of kindness, the reality is all of us are too flawed to be good enough and that’s why Christ came and died on the cross. His cross is the cure and heaven is our crib!
