We Are
Subline 1: 
a church that believes God.
Body 1: 

We are a Spirit-filled, people-loving family of believers in Jesus Christ that are passionate about seeing lives transformed through God's word, extravagant worship, and healthy relationships. Our primary desire is to express the fulness of the kingdom of God in everything we do!

We Value

 

 

Worship

 

We value worship. Encountering the presence of God is the greatest experience! Pleasing God is the greatest privilege! Worship is our highest response to all that God is and has done and is doing in our lives. Above all, He is worthy of our worship.

We value both individual and corporate worship. We encourage believers to develop an expression of daily worship in their life. We also encourage believers to weekly come together to give an extravagant expression of worship to God. We create significant space in our gatherings where we can approach the throne of God with a sound of worship in grace and freedom!

 

Psalm 145:1-2

1I will extol you, my God and King,
    and bless your name forever and ever.

2Every day I will bless you
    and praise your name forever and ever.

 

Hebrews 10:23-25

 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

 

Discipleship 

We value discipleship. We recognize and respect that both salvation and discipleship is a journey.
We respect that some are on a journey to salvation. Others are on a journey of salvation learning to outwork their faith as a growing disciple of Jesus. We believe in a process of discipleship that includes education, imitation and innovation in an atmosphere of freedom and creative expression in the Holy Spirit. We are committed to journeying together in our growing community of faith toward emotional and spiritual health and maturity.

 

 

Hebrews 10:39

39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

 

2Peter 1:3-11

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may becomepartakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtuewith knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-controlwith steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godlinesswith brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. 11 For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 

Connection

We value connection. We place high value on relationship. We seek to see people connected relationally for care, for personal transformation, and to find meaningful expressions of service within the Body of Christ. We want to connect the hearts of people with the Father and the lives of people with each other.

 

John 13:34

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

 

Ephesians 4:16

from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

(The Message)

 

We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.

 

 

Mission

We value mission. We encourage kingdom cause initiatives locally, nationally, and internationally. We express mission in many aspects; from boots on the ground to financial support. Any mission that we are apart of as a body have come about through intentional relationship with each individual or organization. We support many ministries both domestically as well as missions and individual missionaries in Israel and the throughout the continents of Asia and Africa.

 

Titus 2:14

[Jesus the Christ] who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

 

Leadership

We value leadership. We recognize God’s mandate to be a leadership church. We seek to develop and release leaders of influence both within the church and society at large. We value leadership expressed through a servant heart. We don't believe that kingdom leadership comes in a form of hierarchy but through the medium of loving relationship with the authority of the leader affirmed by both people and the Holy Spirit. As leaders, we are not interested in protecting our territory. We are interested in expanding His.

 

MAT 11:12

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.

Mat 20:25-28

25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

We believe
Subline 3: 
in the inerrant word of God.
Body 3: 

There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful.

He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Bible, as the Word of God, is the primary catalyst for transforming the lives of individuals and the church.

Humankind was created in the image of God to know and be known by Him; to enjoy Him and be enjoyed by Him. We were created to glorify Him on the earth! Yet, we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."

We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister super-naturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.

The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy - sin, lies, sickness and torment.

We believe that people matter to God and therefore ought to matter to the Church. The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, disciple the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.

In the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride - His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
