What We Believe
FAMILY LIFE will be intentional about reaching people far from God. We have chosen not to reject TODAY'S culture, but rather utilize it and embrace it to direct people to the Gospel. Although our approach is far from traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.
The Bible – God Wrote A Book:
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.(Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16)
Trinity – God, Three In One:
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19)
The Father – God Is Great, God Is Good:
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good: He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.(Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6 John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4)
The Son – God Became Man:
Jesus Christ is completely human, but at the same time completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we could have life.(Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16)
The Holy Spirit – God Is Always Present:
His presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth, and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.(Genesis 1:2; Psalms 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Lk 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)
Eternity – Somewhere Forever:
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in communion with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in communion with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.(John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13;Revelation 20:15)
Man – God’s Image Bearers:
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God, but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.(Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11)
Salvation – God’s Only Way:
The blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross provides the only way of salvation, through the forgiveness of sins. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God; it cannot be earned through our own efforts.(Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24;Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18;3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10;Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20)
The Church – God’s Design For Community:
The church is a local community of baptized believers, unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, to obeying all of His commands, and to bringing the gospel to the world. The church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.(Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3)
We are a new Church and are looking for those who are looking. We have started a group of believers as we prepare to set our 1st Official Worship Service. We meet weekly on Saturday evening's @ 6:00 Contact us for more information. We are different that our Service time will be on Saturday evening's. Our music will be of a Contemporary Country Christian. We will have new Music as well as some great arrangements of Popular Worship songs and Hymns. Anyone from 8 months-800 will enjoy our blend of Music. We preach from the Bible and believe it is the infallible Word from God. We believe our foundation is to be built upon the Children's Ministry and will take time to make sure your Children are safe and are learning about Jesus in a fun and loving environment.
Seek, Serve and Send
These are the Core Values of our Church. We need to Seek the Lost, Serve God and others and Send people to share the Good News of Jesus to the end of the Earth.
Church is like the LOST and FOUND of People.
People come Lost and find Jesus. They are now Found and they seek more Lost people.
We encourage you to contact us for more information and to answer your questions. Our Lead Pastor, Jeff is excited to speak with you.
This quote from Steve Job's really sums up who we are and what we want to accomplish. And if you are concerned about the troublemaker's line, we need some trouble makers for God. Turn to Acts 17:1-9. Troublemaker's are what the enemies of the Church called Christians at Thessalonica. "These men who have turned the world upside down". We as Christians need not only turn the world upside down and shake it up, we need to change it.
