We believe God has called us to identify our church as an interdenominational fellowship. God has placed heavily on our hearts that we needed to do our part to cross over denominational man-made barriers that are so prevalent in the church today. We long to be a fellowship of believersunhindered by the traditions and religious spirits that have kept us apart in the past. What can the church really accomplish if they link hands together and serve the Master? God is not interested in denominations, He is interested in His personal relationship with you and me. What constitutes a believer? Anybody from any nation, from any culture, from any denomination that believes in their heart and confesses with their mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
“To devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer (Acts 2:42) by following the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that Jesus commanded us as disciples to do.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
We believe that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone Who is the only begotten Son of the Living God. Through Him, all who come to Him by faith and repent of their sins, receive forgiveness through Christ’s death on the Cross and live in newness of life through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. This new life of faith is to be marked by a joyful obedience to Jesus Christ, to God’s Word and to the leading of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 16:15-16; Ephesians 2:4-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 5:22-25).
We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their entirety is God’s Word, and is the standard by which we are to order our lives, express our faith and function as a community (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that we are to live our lives, to make disciples and to grow our church in a manner that expresses the loving and longing heart of God for those who are separated from Jesus Christ and His Church (Matthew 9:12-13; Luke 15; 1 Timothy 4:1-5).
We are committed to ministry being accomplished in relationships which express the love, intimacy, and unity of God as revealed in the relationship of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are committed to holding ourselves accountable before God and to one another.
We are committed to worship in Word and Sacrament, through the power of the Holy Spirit. We hold the two sacraments of the Gospel to be ordained by Christ Himself, Baptism and the Supper of the Lord, and to be administered with unfailing use of Christ’s words of Institution and of the elements ordained by Him. (John 4:23-24; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Acts 17:22-24; Matthew 26:26-28; Matthew 28:19).
We believe that we are to be generous with our time, talents and money as we share with those in need, support of the work of God among us, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (1 John 3:17-18; Ezra 2:68-69; Acts 2:44-47).
We believe that nothing of significance happens in God’s Kingdom in the absence of prayer. Therefore, we seek to make prayer a priority – inviting God to lead, restore, heal and transform our lives, our church, our community and the world (John 14:15-31; Luke 1:1-13).
We intend by God’s grace:
- To partner together in a renewed missionary effort in North America and beyond, driven by our passion for Jesus Christ and His Gospel.
- To build trusting relationships marked by effective coordination, collaboration, and communication.
