What We Believe

Jesus on the CrossFor a detailed theological statement and position papers on most current controversies, you’ll have to refer to our Bylaws and the Missionary Church Constitution. This section will address itself to the “nuts and bolts” that most of us concern ourselves with when considering a church as a possible church home.

By the way, even if you disagree with us on some of these points or something in the official papers, as long as you name Jesus as Lord and Savior, you are still welcome to be with us and worship Jesus in this place!

MISSION STATEMENT:

“To plant a mission-oriented church that uses culturally relevant music and messages to facilitate healing within the Body of Christ in order that we might reach the lost.”

CORE VALUES:

  • Worship – loving God with all your heart
  • The Word of God – loving God with all your mind
  • Works of Service – loving your neighbor as yourself.

THEME VERSE:

Colossians 3:16 ~ “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”

We believe that the Holy Scriptures, in their original autographs, are the inerrant, inspired words of God. Further, we believe that the Holy Spirit has superintended the process of canonization to such a degree that we have all we need for salvation and to instruct us in godly living (2 Tim 3:16-17).

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, fully God and fully man, and we trust Him as Savior and Lord.  He is the only way to the Father and the only hope for lost man (John 14:6).

We believe that true believers in Christ are indwelled by the Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:9) and empowered to be witnesses unto Christ (Acts 1:8). That the Holy Spirit aids them in their attempts to be faithful and obedient (Gal. 5:16-26). That the Holy Spirit still imparts gifts as He sees fit for the building up of the Body and for furthering the work of the Kingdom (1 Corinthians 12:4-11).

We believe that while even redeemed men do sometimes sin (1 John 1:8-9), that we should not practice sin but seek to, “be holy as He is holy” (1 Pet. 1:16; 2 Pet. 3:11).  That personal piety and sanctification are important based upon both the example and the commandments of Jesus (Matt 5:20).

We believe that salvation is “by grace through faith,” but that we are saved, “to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:8-10).
