Our purpose is to Challenge and Mobilize believers to the call of our mission’s opportunities, to Connect solutions to ministry needs, and thereby continue the expansion of the Gospel & the Strengthening of Christ’s church.
To achieve our goals, we organize short-term mission teams to do international and domestic missionary work. It is our deepest desire to ignite a passion for service among the believers of God, and to shed light on the true meaning of sacrifice because we believe in 1 Peter 2:21, which declares, “For this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example so that you might follow in His steps.”
“But be Doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving ourselves.” – James 1:22(ESV)
Statement of Faith
(A) The Bible
We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God (Romans 16:25, 26); that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God (2 Peter 1:20, 21) and were free from error (Psalm 119:160); that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union (2 Timothy 3:15-17); It is Living, Powerful, and Eternal (Hebrews 4:12; 1Peter 1:23-25). The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)
(B) The Godhead
We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—each co-eternal in being, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; John 14:10, 26)
1. God, the Father We believe in one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; 1 Corinthians 8:6) the Creator of all (Psalm 19:1; Romans 1:20), Holy (1 Peter 1:15-16), Sovereign (Psalm 135:6), Self Existent and Eternal (Exodus 3:13, 14; Psalm 90:2). God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe (Hebrews 1:3); He is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient (Psalm 119), and unchangeable (Hebrews 1:10-12).
2. God, the Son
We Believe in the absolute deity of Jesus Christ (John 1:1; 10:30; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 1:8), in His Eternal Existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory (John 17:5), in His Virgin birth (Matthew 1:21-25), Sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), Substitutionary death (John 19:30; 1Peter 2:24), bodily Resurrection (John 20:1-9; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4), triumphant Ascension (Luke 24:51; Acts 1:9), Mediatorial ministry (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25), and personal Return (Matthew 24:29-31; John 14:3).
3. God, the Holy Spirit
We Believe in the absolute deity (Matthew 28:19) and Personality (Romans 8:26, 27) of the Holy Spirit Who, convicts of sin, of righteousness and judgment (John 16:8-11); who regenerates (John 3:6), sanctifies (2 Thessalonians 2:13), illuminates (Romans 8:14), and comforts (Romans 8:16) those who believe in Jesus Christ.
We Believe that man & woman were divinely created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26, 27); that they sinned (Genesis 3:1-6), becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity (Romans 3:19), thereby incurring physical (Romans 5:12) and spiritual death (Ephesians 2:1-5), and bringing this curse upon all mankind (Genesis 3:16-19; Romans 5:12); thus bringing the importance to the substitutionary death of the sinless One, Christ Jesus (Hebrews 10:10). All people, in order to be saved, must believe in Christ’s death (Matthew 27:32-56), burial (Matthew 27: 57-66), and resurrection (Matthew 28: 1-10), and must “confess with their mouths the Lord Jesus and believe in their hearts that God has raised Him from the dead”(Romans 10: 9, 10). Thus, mankind’s salvation is through faith alone, not by any works, “lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2: 8, 9).
We Believe that salvation is by the sovereign (John 14:6) grace of God (Romans 9:15); that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious and propitiatory death (Mark 10:45; Rom. 3:25; 1John 4:10); that justification is by faith alone in the sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 4:23-25; 5:1,2) and that those who’ve placed their faith in Christ are guaranteed a place in Heaven with Christ (Romans 8:28-39 Ephesians 1:12-14).
Section 2.02—Authority Of Statement of Faith
The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. We do believe, however, that the foregoing Statement of Faith accurately represents the teaching of the Bible and, therefore, is binding upon all members. All literature used in the church shall be in complete agreement with the Statement of Faith.
** We strive to honor God in everything that we do. It is not our desire to engage in public debate or political satire. However, we are aware that there are controversial subjects and issues that could arise within a team, project or elsewhere. Therefore it is our desire to make clear what we believe to be Biblical and Unarguable on the following:
• We believe that all sexual acts outside of heterosexual marriage are sin, including homosexuality. We stress that we must always love the sinner but recognize that their actions, and or lifestyle are offensive to God.
• We believe that life begins at conception and that abortion if the taking of a life. We stress that as with all sin, forgiveness and healing can be found in Jesus Christ.
• We believe that mankind is a special creation from God and has been set apart from the rest of creation.
