- We are a faith-based community rooted in the beliefs described by the Holy Scriptures.

- We recognize Jesus as Creator, Sustainer, Savior and Friend, God's Son and God Himself.
- We know God loves us and wants to give us the highest quality of life imaginable.
- He wants to spend time with us personally, one-on-one, as two close friends.
- We believe that we have a responsibility to care for our bodies and abstain from those practices that would harm us.
