Miami is a long ways from Chicago, but David braved the winters to lead our youth. As a Moody student, coach and avid athlete, his kinetic energy is only matched by his passion to guide teens to Christ.

What we believe . . .

The Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings.  They are complete and provide the answers to who God is and who we are in relation to Him.  The Bible offers truth and wisdom to all who believe in the name of Jesus Christ and is authoritative for Christian living.

God exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  In this Trinity, God reigns and rules as Creator, Savior and King.

All human beings were created in the image of God.  Sin through Adam separated humankind’s relationship with our Creator.  Therefore, every single person is in desperate need of redemption and reconciliation with God.

Jesus Christ is true God and true human.  He physically died and historically rose from the dead.  His atonement on the cross offers the only way back to redemption and intimacy with our heavenly Father.  Jesus Christ is head over the Church and the Church submits to His supreme authority.
