Worship with Us

We invite you to come worship with us and be a part of our family. We’re simplifying church and simplifying God's Word by making Him real in our lives. We’re bringing church back to being all about God and growing into an intimate relationship with God. We want to equip you with the Word of God, and get you and your family excited and actively involved in the work God has called you to do.

Sermons

James 1:22-25 The Passion Translation (TPT)
22 Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life! 23 If you listen to the Word and don’t live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning. 24 You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forget[d] your divine origin. 25 But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of liberty are fascinated by and respond to the truth they hear and are strengthened by it—they experience God’s blessing in all that they do!

Ministries

We believe in the importance of getting involved in your local church ministry. God has given everyone an assignment. Are you working in yours? It doesn't matter how young or how old you are, God has a job for you.

Hebrews 10:25 The Passion Translation (TPT)
25 This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing, because we need each other! In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.

 

THE SCRIPTURES
THE SCRIPTURES

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.

Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-‐2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-‐10; 119:11,89,105,140; Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36:1-‐32; Matthew 5:17-‐18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-‐46; John 5:39; 16:13-‐15; 17:17; Acts 2:16ff.; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-‐26; 2 Timothy 3:15-‐17; Hebrews 1:1-‐2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-‐21. 

GOD

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the   Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is inEinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. 
 

GOD THE FATHER

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the Elow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.

GOD THE SON

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord.

GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He calls men to the Saviour, and effects regeneration. At the moment of regeneration He baptizes every believer into the Body of Christ. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer unto the day of Eternal redemption. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. 

Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalms 51:11; 139:7ff.; Isaiah 61:1-‐3; Joel 2:28-‐32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-‐32; 28:19; Mark 1:10,12; Luke 1:35; 4:1,18-‐19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-‐17,26; 15:26; 16:7-‐14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-‐4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17,39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-‐6; Romans 8:9-‐11,14-‐16,26-‐27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-‐14; 3:16; 12:3-‐11,13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-‐14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8,14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-‐7; Revelation 1:10; 22:17. 

MAN
MAN

Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. The gift of gender is thus part of the goodness of God's creation. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original innocence whereby his posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin. Therefore, as soon as they are capable of moral action, they become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfil the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love. 

Genesis 1:26-‐30; 2:5,7,18-‐22; 3; 9:6; Psalms 1; 8:3-‐6; 32:1-‐5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Matthew 16:26; Acts 17:26-‐31; Romans 1:19-‐32; 3:10-‐18,23; 5:6,12,19; 6:6; 7:14-‐25; 8:14-‐18,29; 1 Corinthians 1:21-‐31; 15:19,21-‐22; Ephesians 2:1-‐22; Colossians 1:21-‐22; 3:9-‐11. 

 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God. 

Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life. 

Glorifications is the culmination of salvation and is the Eternal blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.

Genesis 3:15; Exodus 3:14-‐17; 6:2-‐8; Matthew 1:21; 4:17; 16:21-‐26; 27:22-‐28:6; Luke 1:68-‐69; 2:28-‐32; John 1:11-‐14,29; 3:3-‐21,36; 5:24; 10:9,28-‐29; 15:1-‐16; 17:17; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 15:11; 16:30-‐31; 17:30-‐31; 20:32; Romans 1:16-‐18; 2:4; 3:23-‐25; 4:3ff.; 5:8-‐10; 6:1-‐23; 8:1-‐18,29-‐39; 10:9-‐10,13; 13:11-‐14; 1 Corinthians 1:18,30; 6:19-‐20; 15:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-‐20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; 5:22-‐25; 6:15; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-‐22; 4:11-‐16; Philippians 2:12-‐13; Colossians 1:9-‐22; 3:1ff.; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-‐24; 2 Timothy 1:12; Titus 2:11-‐14; Hebrews 2:1-‐3; 5:8-‐9; 9:24-‐28; 11:1-‐12:8,14; James 2:14-‐26; 1 Peter 1:2-‐23; 1 John 1:6-‐2:11; Revelation 3:20; 21:1-‐22:5. 

 

GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. It is the glorious display of God's sovereign goodness, and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, and bring reproach on the cause of Christ and temporal judgments on themselves; yet they shall be kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
