The Authority of Scripture
RADICAL BIBLICAL FELLOWSHIP
Every believer is an adopted child of the most high God. The local church is the expression of this family unit which serves to correct, teach, support, and love all who are part of that family. This occurs through regular corporate worship as well as fellowship outside of the walls of the church. Romans 8:14-17. 2 Timothy 3:16. Acts 2:42-47
EQUIPPING AND EXPANDING THE BODY
Every follower of Christ is called to give a defense for the hope that is within them. There are no professional Christians. We seek to equip members of our church with sound doctrine, knowledge of scripture, and the ability to carry out the advancement of God’s kingdom. As part of that advancement, we seek to send out workers to create a multiplication of local churches. 1 Peter 3:15. 1 Peter 2:9. Ephesians 4:12.
The church is to be a place where believers can journey together in the process of sanctification. In part, we can pursue holiness and closeness with God through the regular corporate practice of spiritual disciplines to edify the whole body. 1 Corinthians 9:26.
ADVANCING, DEFENDING, AND LIVING GOD’S TRUTH
The ultimate need of every human being is to recognize their sin , be justified before a Holy and Righteous God, and to be restored back into a right relationship with their creator. The primary method by which evangelism happens is by believers sharing the Gospel with people they interact with on a regular basis. Romans 10:14-15. Romans 3:23. Romans 6:23. Romans 8:1. 2 Corinthians 5:20
We desire to show those in the community the love of Christ that has been shown to us by clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, and sheltering the poor. This will be done through the stewardship of the resources we have been given by the grace of God to carry out this work. Matthew 25:42-43. Proverbs 21:13. James 1:27.
