“God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home.” Ephesians 2:20-22 (Message)

The Foundation of What We Believe


Who We Are


We are called to be the Church (Ecclesia) accessing the fullness of the inheritance of God that was purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ.


•We are called where every believer is equipped to serve God using their spiritual gifts
•We are called to be a place where a fullness of God’s word is manifested in the freedom of His Grace
•We are called to be a place of covenant, place of worship, place of warfare, and a place of communion
•We are not supposed to be a people who walk in our own understanding but we follow the Holy Spirit and His prophetic word•


Why We Worship Like We Do


The Bible teaches that worship is not a dull ritual, but a joyful and intimate “Celebration” of God’s presence.
The Bible encourages us to express our love to God in a variety of ways:


– Singing – Psalm 30:4, 95:1
– Kneeling – Psalm 95:6, Luke 22:41
– Standing – Psalm 134:1, 135:2
– Lifting up Hands – Ps. 134:2, I Tim. 2:8
– Clapping Hands – Ps. 47:I, 98:8
– Dancing – Psalm 149:3, 150:4
– Shouting – Psalm 35:27, 47:l
– Musical Instruments – Psalm 150:3-5, II Samuel 6:5
– Prophetic Song – Ps. 40:3, 96:1, 98:1

Keys to Knowing God


God wants you to know Him and experience His love


1. God loves you and wants the very best for you. “I know the plans I have for you… plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jer 29:11

2. The only thing that keeps you from experiencing God’s love is your sin. (Sin is “going your own way” and falling short of God’s will for your life.) ‘Your iniquities have separated you from your God. Your sins have hidden His face from you.” – Is. 59:2

3. The key to knowing God Is to receive Jesus and the forgiveness He offers. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” – Jn. 14:6 Jesus paid the penalty for your sin when He shed His blood on the cross. He died and rose again so that He could bring you into a relationship with God.

4. Receiving Jesus Involves turning from your sin and receiving the forgiveness Jesus provides. When you do that, God sends His Spirit to dwell in your heart and make you a new person. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God.” – Jn. 1:12

You receive Jesus through faith. Faith can be expressed in a simple prayer like this: “Lord Jesus, I need You. I now turn from my sins and receive Your forgiveness. Please send Your Spirit to live within me so I can know You and be all that You want me to be. I thank You now, by faith, that You have forgiven all my sins and brought me into a relationship with You!”
