Founded over 75 years ago, our forefathers started this church on the principles of love for Jesus, love for people, and family. To this day we still strongly believe in these same simple and yet profound values. We are the Legacy.
What We Believe
No matter who you are or where you come from, you belong here. Hard stop. We believe that the church was never meant to feel like an, “elite social club;” but rather a perfectly imperfect family following Jesus one step at a time.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything. His salvation invites us to joyfully leave the comfortable and familiar, and journey with Him to share His love and grace outside our walls. He calls us to help meet the needs of our community through the transformative work of God; so that all may behold His grace and power.
You were created on purpose and for a purpose. We want to help each person discover, develop, and properly express their God given gift, to further edify our church and advance the Gospel in our community. Through the Holy Spirit’s power, we strive to train up men and women so that our ministry today may impact generations to come.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

II CORINTHIANS 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless, human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives believers spiritual gifts and empowers them for ministry. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

I CORINTHIANS 2:12, 3:16; EPHESIANS 1:13, 5:18; GALATIANS 5:25
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s Word to us in written form. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the infallible word of God.
