Evangelism: The Gospel taken outside the four walls is the absolute foundation of our church, in obedience to Mark 16:15 "And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature"… We emphasize personal evangelism, and a large variety of outreaches to share the Gospel. We believe that the number of people that come into a church is going to be directly proportional to the number of encounters they have with the gospel of Jesus Christ."
Conversion: We witness, testify and preach for a decision. The Gospel has the power to save and transform lives. 1 Peter 1:23 "having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever…" The bulk of our congregation consists of people converted here by the Power of God.
The Local Church: God has placed everything necessary to accomplish His will in the setting of the local church. "Hebrews 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." God’s will is accomplished in us and through us as we connect and commit ourselves to a local church.
Discipleship: God intends for destiny and calling to be accomplished through being trained and equipped within the setting of a local church. Therefore, the highest calling of a Pastor and our congregation is to obey God’s command in Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen."
Church Planting: The result of disciples being raised up is that they can then be released into the harvest field. Matthew 9:37-38 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." We send couples to plant brand new congregations, with the aim of reproducing our vision in a new area.
World Evangelism: From the earliest Bible record, God’s vision is worldwide testimony and impact. The gospel message and the vision God has revealed to us is not simply American, but God-inspired; so therefore it works, and is relevant in every nation and culture of the world. Mark 16:15 "all the world/every person"…Matthew 28:19 "all the nations…" Our job as believers, and as the local church is to pray, train, invest, send and support workers to go into all the world!
