"For the Word of God is Living and active..."

The BibleWe whole-heartedly believe that God alone is the One who redeems people unto Himself (Genesis 3:15, 6:18, 12:1-3, 15:12-21, Psalm 3:8, Jonah 2:9, Ezekiel 36:26,27, Jeremiah 31:31-34, John 6:44, 12:32, Revelation 7:10). Furthermore, we believe that the way God brings this redemption about is through His Word as He makes Himself known (Exodus 3:13-22, Ezekiel 37:1-14, Romans 1:16,17). In light of these truths, we make it our aim for the Word of God to be central in all of our ministries (Acts 2:42, 1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16,17, 4:1-5, Titus 1:9). We do so because we believe that as we make God known from His Word, He makes the Word effective in peoples hearts and lives by His Holy Spirit (John 16:13,14, 1 Corinthians 2:9-13, 1 John 2:20,27). In other words, we see all true ministry as ministry of the Word (Romans 10:14-17). Chief among these ministries is our Sunday morning corporate worship (Hebrews 10:24,25, Ephesians 5:19,20). We see this time as the center of gravity from which all of our other ministries of the Word spring forth (Revelation 4:1-5:14). 

Furthermore, we believe that the central message of God's Word is the good news that the Father has sent the Son to redeem for Himself a people from every tongue, and tribe, and nation (Genesis 12:1-3, Psalm 2:8, Isaiah 2:2, Jeremiah 3:17, Daniel 7:17, Luke 24:25-32, John 3:16, 5:39,40, Acts 2:1-12, 1 Corinthians 15:3,4, Hebrews 1:1-3, Revelation 4:9,10, 7:9, 21:22-22:5). Jesus has secured that redemption in His life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and current mediation on our behalf (Isaiah 53:6, Matthew 3:15, Luke 22:44, John 1:14, Acts 1:9-11,10:42, Romans 8:3, 1 Corinthians 15:3,4, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Galatians 3:13, 4:4,5, 1 Peter 1:18-21, Hebrews 2:14-15,17-18, 4:15, 9:24, 1 Timothy 2:5,6, 1 Peter 3:18). Additionally, we believe that Jesus is continuing His work to this day by building His church to be on mission together to know Him and make Him known (Matthew 16:18, 28:18-20, John 10:16, Acts 1:8,9). Therefore we co-labor together as Christ's body to care for one another, raise up leaders, and send believers to the nations to declare the glorious good news of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:3-6, Ephesians 4:1-32, Matthew 28:18-20).
