What is the Gospel?

It was God’s heart to create man and be in a relationship with him. Our hearts are bent on rebellion and wanting to be in control and we rebel against God’s loving leadership. God knew and had a plan to redeem His creation through His one and only son Jesus.  Jesus came and re-established His kingdom on earth. Jesus taught us what it looks like to live in the new kingdom.  Then Jesus died on the cross to make complete payment for our rebellion and sin. On the 3rd day Jesus rose from the dead in kingdom power. Because of who Jesus is and what he has done, he calls us to respond to the power of the kingdom, through daily repentance, belief, and following.  Jesus has called us to make disciples who respond daily also. God empowers us with the gift of His Holy Spirit, so we can obey Him and love others

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

God

We believe there is one true and infinitely perfect God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, eternally existent in the three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. 

 

Genesis 1:1

Deuteronomy 6:4

Matthew 3:16

Acts 5:3-4

Colossians 1:15-16 & 2:9

Salvation

We believe salvation is a gift freely offered by the grace of God to all who repent of their sins, accept the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross as the sacrifice for their sins, and by faith receive Jesus Christ as Savior. All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which they are eternally secure. 

 

Mark 1:15

John 3:3-23 & 10:28

Galatians 4:5-7

Ephesians 2:8-10

Hebrews 9:22

1 John 1:9

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross – a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. He arose bodily from the dead, He ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Father, He is now our High Priest and Advocate. 

 

Isaiah 7:14 & 9:6

1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 14-15

Philippians 2:5-11

Hebrews 9:11-28

1 John 2:1-2

Mankind

We believe God created both man and woman sinless in His image, but mankind, through Adam’s sin, fell into sin and all of mankind is therefore separated from God and subject to His wrath. All people are sinners by nature and by practice and are unable to remedy their lost condition. 

 

Genesis 1:26-27 & 3:1-24

Psalm 51:1-17

Isaiah 53:5-6 & 64:6

Romans 3:10-18, 23

Ephesians 2:1-3

Holy Spirit

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide and empower the believer for godly living and service. 

 

John 14:16-17 & 16:7-14

Acts 1:8

1 Corinthians 12

Ephesians 1:13-14

The Church

We believe the true Church is the body of believers, and Christ is the Head. We also believe in the local Church - believers gathering together in local assemblies for the purposes of instruction, prayer, fellowship, worship, exhortation, encouragement, and to be witnesses to God’s saving grace in the world.

 

Matthew 28:18-20

Acts 2:41-47

1 Corinthians 12:12-13

Ephesians 1:22-23 & 4:4-6

Colossians 1:18

The Bible

We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the divinely inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings. It is the ultimate and final authority in all matters of faith and practice. 

 

Psalm 19 & 119

John 17:17

2 Timothy 3:16

2 Peter 1:20-21

End Times

We believe in the personal, physical and imminent return of Jesus Christ, at which time the believer will be resurrected to eternal, unbroken fellowship with God, and the unbeliever will be resurrected to eternal punishment and separation from God.

1 Corinthians 15:24-58

Abide

To grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and to be transformed by His power, so that we can live differently in our homes, our church, and our community.

John 15:1-14

Connect

To draw closer to Jesus by serving and connecting with others, so we can disciple others to be more connected to Jesus and others.

Colossians 3:1-11

Share

To actively seek to share your faith with those who do not know Jesus yet.

Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 1:16

Equip

To intentionally equip people to become disciples of Jesus by using their gifts and their story for God's glory.

Ephesians 4:11-12, 2 Timothy 2:2

Pursue

If any person you are connected to strays from Jesus, you will do your part to make sure that they have been noticed, valued, and pursued.

Jude 1:22-23

Release

We will always move towards the goal of releasing spiritually mature disciples of Jesus, who will then GO and make more disciples of Jesus Christ!
