What We Believe

As followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that He is the only son of God who came to earth to conquer sin and death. We believe that those who place their faith and trust in Jesus as their Savior have a right relationship with God and eternal salvation. We believe that the Bible is the literal, authoritative word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit to be used for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.

“MomQ has been my weekly dose of encouragement. It has transformed the way I approach the daily hardships of parenting, and strengthened my marriage. I absolutely love how moms from all walks of life can come together to dive deep into God’s truth. Our mentor moms have created a positive, safe environment where we can be honest and vulnerable without judgement. Whether you are a seasoned Christian or are just seeking answers, this group is for you. All the teachings provide a relevant, biblically centered approach to the different struggles and challenges of raising Godly children in a noisy world. ”
