8 Principles That Make Our Church Unique

Outward focused — (Phil. 2:3-4)
Otherly minded, focused on others; servant evangelism, ministry to the poor.

Unity on basics — (John 17:20-23)
Embracing the Church in the city, that the prayer of Jesus be answered,” that the world may know that God sent Jesus.”

Team based — (1 Cor. 12:28-30)
There are no lone rangers. God has given gifts to the church, that they might work together under the headship of Jesus.

Radical worship — (John 4:23-24; Acts 15:15-18)
Opens the heavens so that the purposes of God will be done in our region; therefore our worship is passionate and purposeful.

Every member a minister — (Eph. 4:11-13)
Ministry training school to equip every member to do the works of Jesus. Our desire is to launch people into their destiny.

Action oriented — (Phil. 2:12-13;Matt. 28:18-20)
We promote people who are doing and producing in the church. Leadership comes from those who lead by example in serving, sheperding, praying, and demonstrating the power of God.

Climate of love — (Matt. 22:39; John 13:35)
Love is the tangible product that sets us apart and shows the world who we really are.

Hospitality — (2 Kings 4:8-17; Luke 10:1-11)
Being hospitable to the anointing, showing generosity to the gifts of God turns a visitation into a habitation.

— Our Statement of Faith —
What We Believe

  • In essential beliefs — we have unity.
    “There is one Body and one Spirit...there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all...” Eph. 4:4-6
  • In non-essential beliefs — we have liberty.
    “Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters... Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls... So then each of us will give an account of himself to God... So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1,4,12,22
  • In all our beliefs — we show charity.
    “...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains — but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Cor. 13:2 (Ph)

The Essentials We Believe:

  1. About God
    The One True God is the eternally self-existent “IAM” the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
    Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
  2. About Jesus Christ
    Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary. 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.
    Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
  3. 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 men aware of their 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. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
    2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18
  4. About the Bible
    The Bible is God’s Word to us. All Scripture is verbally inspired by God as written in the original languages and is inerrant revelation of God to man. The Bible is the infallible authority for faith and conduct. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
    2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
  5. About Human Beings
    Man was created good and upright in the image and likeness of God. The first man, Adam, through disobedience, fell from the grace of God and, thus, sin and death entered into this world. Adam’s sin incurred not only physical death for man, but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God. Man’s propensity to sin because of his sinful nature necessitates salvation from the power of sin and a Savior to provide that salvation.
    Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2
  6. About Salvation
    Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from sin is entirely through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
    Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
  7. About Eternity
    People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
    John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Cor. 2:7-9
  8. About The Church and Its Mission
    The Church is the body of Christ and is comprised of all believers. God inhabits the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit both individually and corporately. Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshiped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the Church’s responsibility is 1) to evangelize the world, and 2) to be a corporate body in which man may worship and glorify God. Jesus Christ is the Lord and head of the Church, and every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
  9. About Assembling Together
    …That as believers we must not forsake the assembling of ourselves together (and all the more in these last days), that Church attendance, fellowship, and submission one to another, will play a very important part in our deliverance from this world. Heb 10:24-25 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.
