what we believe

Our mission is to lead people to become
fully devoted followers of Christ

Your life

Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we’ll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God’s vision for your life, giving, or joining us regularly.

You don’t have to take the next step alone. With a strong community of friends, you can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you. Find a small group, or LifeGroup, to join you on your journey.

Your family

Strong families start with solid foundations. That’s why we partner with parents to help raise the next generation to become followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God.

Our Staff

Our staff works together to love and serve God, and uphold
the mission and vision of The Edge.

Our Community and World

We are passionate about serving the global community and demonstrating God’s love to others. Whether in person or online, individually or in groups, within our church and around the world, we are focused on supporting and engaging in relationships that provide relief and restoration to a hurting world.

essential doctrine & Beliefs

The Edge is a Christian church, which means we follow Jesus, we teach from the Bible, and we worship God as the Creator and Ruler of the universe. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ our Savior, we are healed, renewed, redeemed, forgiven, transformed, and loved.
It is our passion to share our faith and this hope with the world.

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.

He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The three are coequal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | Matthew 28:19 | 2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus is the Son of God.

He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.

Matthew 1:22, 23 | Isaiah 9:6 | John 1:1-5 | Hebrews 4:14-15 | 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 | Romans 1:3-4 | Acts 1:9-11 | Colossians 2:9-10 | 1 Timothy 6:14-15

The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.

The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

Acts 1:8 | John 14:16-17; 16:7-13 | Galatians 5:25 | 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16 | Ephesians 1:13 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 | 1 Peter 1:2

The Bible is God’s Word to us.

The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.

2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21 | Psalm 119:105; 160; 12:6 | Proverbs 30:5 | Isaiah 55:11

People are the supreme object of God’s creation.

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.

Genesis 1:27 | Isaiah 53:6 | Romans 3:23 | Isaiah 59:1-2 | Psalm 139:13-16 | Colossians 2:13-15

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it.

We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | John 14:6 | Romans 5:1, 5:8; 10:9-10

People will exist eternally with or without God.

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16, 14:17 | Romans 6:23| Revelation 20:15| Philippians 2:5-11 | Matthew 25:31-34, 25:41

Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to "fulfill all righteousness."

Mattew 3:16-17| Acts 2:41; 8:12| Romans 6:4| Colossians 2:12

In addition to Essential Beliefs, we have liberty in Non-Essential Beliefs.

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master servants stand or fall… So then each of us will give an account of ourselves to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.

Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22

"I have the right to do anything," you say--but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"--but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.

1 Corinthians 10:23-4

our standarDs

In addition to our beliefs, which we hold dear based on our Biblical values, we also see several important issues in our culture that we must take a biblical stand on.

Marriage and sexuality

We affirm the Biblical ideal on marriage and sexuality. Marriage is to be between one man and one woman and is a covenent made before God for life.
Our sexuality is a gift from God and should be an expression of our love for our spouse set within the parameters of Scripture. Marriage is used as a representation of the relationship between God and His people.

Genesis 2:18-24 | Matthew 19:4-5 | 1 Corinthians 6:16 | Hebrews 13:4

Sanctity of Life

We believe that all life is important, but most sacred to God is human life. The Bible affirms that humanity was created in the image of God. We are thus to represent Him in all we do and recreate Him in the world around us.
We likewise believe that Scripture affirms that human life begins at conception, and that just as we care for those people around us, we should likewise care for the unbord and be advocates for them.

Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7, 2:20-23 | Psalm 36:9, 139:13-18 | John 13:34-35 | Galatians 3:28


We hold steadfast to the Biblical standard on reconciliation, as outlined by Jesus in Matthew 18. We refuse to gossip or speak ill of people behind their back.

Matthew 18:15-20 | 2 Corinthians 5:11-21
