Organizational Statement of Faith: 

This program is non-denominational and is Christ-centered. We focus on the gospel message and how Jesus' love and sacrifice relates to how we live our lives.

We believe that Jesus is the one and only Son of God, was sent to earth to save humanity from their sinful nature. Jesus paid the price for all sin by living a sinless life, fully God and fully man, being crusified by our sin, and being risen from the dead. (John 3:16)
