As a non-denominational church, ACC uses the Bible as our guide. With that in mind, there are a handful of things that we find to be “essential” to our faith in Christ and in understanding who God is.

We subscribe to the motto: In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. And, in all things, love.

Here are the things that we think are “essential” and that we should be unified on as a church:
