The Vision

REACHING the un-churched, SHARING the good news of God's love and BUILDING strong families.

What Kind of Church is This?

We are a non-denominational, multi-cultural, multi-generational, spirit filled church where people from various walks of life are being transformed by the Word of God.

Our Beliefs

The Bible is the inspired Word of God
Scripture speaks with the authority of God while simultaneously reflecting the backgrounds, styles and vocabularies of these human authors. We hold that the Scriptures, in their original manuscripts, are infallible and inerrant; they are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice. There are no other writings similarly inspired by God.

 

The Holy Trinity
We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. (Gen. 1:26; 1 Jn. 5:7)

 

Salvation
We believe all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord and Savior, trusting Him to save, that person is immediately born again and sealed by the Holy Spirit, all of his/her sins are forgiven and that person becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord. (Rom. 3:23-26; 6:23; 10:9-10; 2 Cor. 5:17; Eph. 2:8-9)

 

Water Baptism
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe the decision to be baptized is up to the individual and that he or she must fully understand what it means to be a Christ follower.

 

The practice of the Lord’s Supper (Communion)
During Jesus’ last days, He gathered the disciples in a room and asked them to consume bread and wine “in remembrance” of Him. Two thousand years later, we regularly observe the act of consuming bread and grape juice as a community for the exact same reason—to remember our Savior, who sacrificed Himself for our sins.

 

The Church
All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are united with Him as members of His body, the one true church. Scripture commands believers to gather for worship, prayer, fellowship and the teaching of the Word; to observe Baptism and Communion as established by Jesus Christ; to offer service to the body through development and use of talents and gifts and outreach to the world. The local expression of the church is wherever God’s people meet regularly in obedience to this command. Cared for and led by Elders and leaders, church members are to work together in love and unity for the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ (1 Cor. 12:12, 14, 20; Eph. 5:23).

 

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and the expression of all gifts of the Spirit being for today.  Further we believe in the evidence of speaking in tongues in order to edify and build yourself up in your most holy faith.

 

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ with His saints to rule the earth, which will be personal and visible. We await the rapture of the church, we are motivated to holy living, heartfelt worship, committed service, diligent study of God’s Word, regular fellowship, participation in adult baptism by immersion and Holy Communion. (Mk. 13:26-27; 1 Thes. 4:16-17)

 

Eternal Destiny
Death seals the eternal destiny of each person. All humanity will experience a bodily resurrection and a judgment that will determine the fate of each individual. Having rejected God, unbelievers will suffer eternal judgment apart from Him. Believers will be received into eternal communion with God and will be rewarded for works done in this life.

 

Marriage
We believe that marriage, as ordained by God, is defined as being between one man and one woman. No other ceremony will be performed by a Family Church Pastor or on Family Church Property. (Gen. 2:23-24; 21:21; 29:21; Jer. 29:6; Rom. 7:2; 1 Cor. 7:2, 36, 39; Eph. 5:22-23, 25, 28-29, 31, 33)

Our Values

Faith
Faith in Jesus Christ, Faith in the Word of God
Without Faith it is impossible to please God.  Heb 11:6

 

Acceptance
All are welcome, Come as you are, Everyone is accepted
Accept one another, Just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.  Rom 15:7

 

Maturity
Become fully committed followers of Christ
Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, Heb 6:1

 

Involvement
Everyone plays a part
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.    1 Peter 4:10

 

Love
Love God, Love People
 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’       Luke 10:27

 

Youth
Youth are the church of today
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Tim 4:12
