Our fundamental philosophy centers on restoring the heart of simple Christianity. We endeavor to live, love, worship, and have the commitment and faith like that of the New Testament Christians. We try not to read into scripture what isnít there, or ignore what scripture says in order to fit our own personal interpretations or traditions.
OUR CORE VALUES
1. We accept God's Word as the final authority. II Timothy 3:16-17
2. We are a Christian community. Ephesians 1:22-23
3. We will be culturally relevant. 1 Corinthians 9:19-22
4. We strive for excellence in everything. Colossians 3:17,23
5. We will continue to be good stewards of God's gifts and blessings. I Peter 4:10-11
We believe in one God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe in God the Father, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
(Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, my one and only Savior,
(John 1:14; 1 John 4:9 / John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)
Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, (Matthew 21:11; John 19:19 / John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38) Who suffered and was crucified,(Luke 23:1-46) Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day, (Luke 23:44 - 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8) Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father, (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1) Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.(Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active and operative part of the triune God.
(John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27) and indwells every Christian.(Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)
We believe in the Bible, God's Holy Word. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those writings are without error.
(Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
(Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
(Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins are achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
( Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15 / Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.
(Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
We believe that each congregation within the Lordís church is independent and is overseen by Elders and Deacons.
(Colossians 1:18, 1 Timothy 5:17-19, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Timothy 3:8-13, Ephesians 4:11-12)
