ABOUT

Pure and Simple

This is who we are. Undoubtedly God has created each and every one of us for a specific reason. We believe that God has put together this ministry one person at a time. This page is dedicated to sharing who we are as a church and who are are as individuals.

 

Our Mission is to see radical life change through the love of Jesus!

 

 

We want you to feel as welcome as possible. If you have any questions at all feel free to click here to reach out to us. 

Our Core Values

1

WE PREACH GRACE NOT GUILT

We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone and that we should follow in his steps. Who are we to pass judgment and not extend grace, when we ourselves have sinned. We believe we should love the sinner, not banish them.

2

Jesus is Worthy

We believe that Jesus is central to everything. We believe that prayer is a direct line to God, and that we should speak to Him every chance we get. Worship is our chance to praise God and we take joy in doing so.

3

In It Together

We are called to join in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe that reaching out to the lost and engaging with them will strengthen our bond with each other through God.

4

WE ARE A CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS

Jesus called us to go out and spread the word of God. We believe that this is not done enough. We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken. We hope that you will join us in doing so.

We are Thankful For You

Our History

Connect is a young, independent, growing ministry. We started with a small group of people who came together out of a shared desire to create a different kind of church—a ministry that was not defined by a specific place or a specific gathering time, but by a group of people living out the truth of God’s Word by modeling grace, and by loving and serving others.. This is one reason we call ourselves a “A Place Without Walls.” Also, we believe that WE are the church.

CORE BELIEFS

Essential Beliefs – We Have Unity

“Therefore is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6)


Non-Essential Beliefs – We Have Liberty

“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or fails. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.” (Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22)


In All Beliefs – We Show Love

“If I had the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” (I Cor. 13:2)


About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons we call the Trinity – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14.


About Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; I Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13.


About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make humankind aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living; understand of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His daily control.

II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18.


About The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is always true. It is the supreme source of truth and the supreme authority for Christian beliefs and living.

II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105; 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5.


About Us

Scripture teaches that we are made “in the image of God.” People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems for life.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2.


About Salvation

We are saved, not by our works, but by trusting in Jesus' work on the cross. Because Jesus paid the penalty for sin, salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into one’s life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1.


About Eternal Security

Because salvation is a free gift from God (Eph 2:8), the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Paul chastised the Galatian Christians for, "after beginning with the Spirit...now trying to attain their goal by human effort" (Gal 3:3). His point was that an offer which begins by grace, as a free promise, must continue to be made on the same basis or it stops being a promise. As soon as it becomes based on performance, it can no longer be a free gift.

John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; I Peter 1:3-5.


About Eternity

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in Hell or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation in Heaven. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of existence.

John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Hebrews 9:27.
