An equipping ministry to Disciple the Church.
A mission base to Send the Church.
WE BELIEVE the one, holy universal Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all who have been gathered into Christ.
We highly value a biblical Ecclesiology.
Ecclesiology is the study of the Church, specifically its nature and manifestation.
Ekkelesia is the Greek word for “church” which means the "called out assembly".
It is a people gathered together in a place for a purpose.
Spiritually speaking it is every believer that is gathered into Christ.
Three Central Convictions about the Church:
1) Jesus builds the church
18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
2) Jesus builds it upon the heavenly spiritual revelation of himself
17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
3) Jesus builds it with living stones which are born again believers
22 In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
1 Peter 2:4-5
4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious,
5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
So we believe that the Church is not a meeting, building, or organization but rather a people built together in Christ.
In a real sense the word “Church” for us is the plural of the word “Disciple.”
