Mission Statement

 

Mission:  We are commanded by Jesus Christ, "The Great Commission,"

 

Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

It is our mission, authorized by Jesus and given power to do so.

 

Discipleship:  We believe in the 5 fold ministry manifesting through the anointing of the Holy Spirit within a person's sanctified life, thus we are to be accountable to each other in the governing of our church. We are a presbytery polity with the covering of the overseers: senior pastor, lead associate pastor, associate pastors, the board of officers, the board of elders, the board of directors, leaders, helpers and volunteers. There are no prejudice in the office to which God assigns and are to honor each and everyone who helps to build the Kingdom. We are to nurture, mentor, coach and disciple within our Body of Christ to lift up to the office when it is confirmed by the Holy Spirit, the Word of God and our governance. Ephesians 4:11-13, Romans 12:6-9, 2 Timothy 3, Titus 3

 

We believe the 9 gifts are for today. When we are corporately allowing the Holy Spirit to manifest the gifts, it is done in a Godly way that edifies the body and the church. Acts 8, 1 Corinthians 12-14

 

We believe a person who is intimate with God will continue to walk in their sanctification, thus his or her walk will show as spiritual fruit. We are all Fruit Inspectors and not judges, we are to respect the working of the Holy Spirit to manifest.  Fruit of the spirit in our walk with God will be apparent. Acts 17:11, Galatian 6:4, Galatian 5:22-23
