What We Value
We desire to be a church that is raw, real, & loves you where you are. But we don't want you to stay there.
WE BELIEVE LIFE CHANGE HAPPENS WHEN YOU...
MAKE THE BIBLE THE BLUEPRINT FOR YOUR LIFE.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, our ultimate authority. It is relevant for every part of our lives and the foundation of our church.
TURN YOUR FEET TOWARDS CHRIST.
We are always expecting that it is someone's day to decide to follow Jesus. We allow the Holy Spirit to change people, not forcing progress onto anyone.
TAKE YOUR NEXT STEP.
God loves you where you are, but He loves you too much to let you stay the same. We believe that growing people change, and we're here to help you find your next step in growing in your relationship with Jesus.
REALIZE YOU WERE RESCUED TO BE A RESCUER.
We have been commissioned by Jesus to go and make disciples. As followers of Him, it is our responsibility to share the gospel and invite others on this journey.
FOCUS ON THE YOU NEXT TO YOU.
We consider others better than ourselves and demonstrate this Jesus-like attitude through praying, inviting, serving, and giving.
CHOOSE THE ATTITUDE THAT, “WE GET TO DO THIS!”
God doesn’t need us, but He chooses to work in us and through us. We don’t think we are better than any other church out there.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, 3 in 1. (Matthew 28:18-20)
God created everything and everyone. God is our heavenly Father. (Genesis 1:1; Ephesians 4:6)
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins, arose from the dead, sits at the right hand of God and will be coming back for us as promised. (John 1:14, 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
The Holy Spirit is on the earth today and dwells in the hearts of Christians to guide, protect and empower God’s believers. (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 12:1-11)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our guide and final authority for all matters of faith and practice. (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
Every person on this earth has been created by God—mind, body, and soul—and is of great value to Him. Every one of us has sinned and falls short of God’s Glory. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23)
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and is the only bridge to gain access to God and heaven. (John 14:6; Romans 5:8)
We receive Jesus Christ through personal invitation of salvation to begin a personal relationship with Him. God’s guarantee includes forgiveness of sins, the ability to turn away from temptation (repentance), eternal life in heaven, water baptism to establish a new creation in Christ and all the Spiritual tools to lead a purpose driven life on earth. (John 1:12, 3:16, 14:6; Acts 3:28, 10:9; Revelation 3:20)
The church is the body of Christ, God’s family of faith on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to meet the needs of the lost and build up those who are saved. We are Serving Seekers and Building Believers! The church must be able to relate to today’s culture while remaining doctrinally pure. (Ephesians 4:1-16; 1 Timothy 3:15; Acts 16:5; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
Baptism is an outward demonstration of turning your feet towards Christ. By symbolizing Jesus’s death and resurrection through going down into the water and coming up (immersion), baptism publicly declares that you desire for your ungodly life to be at an end and your new life with Christ to be amplified. (Colossians 2:12; Romans 6:4; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Holy Communion is a very highly regarded act of love and a time for the Life Changing Church family to remember the ultimate sacrifice by Jesus, for us, of His broken body and shed blood. (Mark 14:22-26; 1 Corinthians 11:25)
Christ followers (believers) should pursue and continually take steps towards intimacy with Jesus Christ and the fullness of God. (Ephesians 4:25-26, 32; Hebrews 12:1; Philippians 1:6)
