Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
At Life Change we believe that our name says it all. We are all about seeing lives changed and we do this by Growing in God, Loving Others, and Reaching Our World. We see our vision as both a unifying statement and an individual call to discipleship.
If our vision is where we are going, our values are how we are going to get there. We believe that our values are our moral compass and set the tone for how we live our lives.
A House of Prayer | Life change happens through personal and unified prayer.
Unreserved Praise & Worship | We won't hold back in offering our praise & worship to our God.
Contagious Generosity | Our faith is exercised when we give generously of all that God has given us.
Lead By Serving | God has given us gifts for the purpose of serving Him and serving others.
Intentional Discipleship | Developing generations of leaders who influence and equip each generation after them.
Biblical Truth | The inspired Word of God is truth, it is relevant, and it elevates us to new places.
Community Impact | We won't stay quiet about all that God is doing in this house.
The Next Generation | We have a heart to reach, equip, and partner with the Next Generation.
The Godhead (Three in One)
Our God chose to reveal Himself through the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Exodus 3:14, Isaiah 43:10-11, Isaiah 48:16, Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22)
Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He became God's perfect sacrifice for sin. His death satisfied the righteous demands of the Father for the sin debt. (Isaiah 7:14, Hebrews 10:5-10) The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and as such shares in the divinity and deity of God. (Matthew 1:23, John 5:22-23, 2 John 3, Hebrews 1:1-13)
Baptism of the Holy Spirit
The baptism of the Holy Spirit gives the believer power for life and service. (Acts 8:12-17, Acts 10:44-46, Acts 11:14-15, Acts 15:7-9, Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4, 8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, Acts 2:4)
Man: Sin and Salvation
Man has a capacity to sin. Salvation is the power over that sin. (Acts 4:12, Romans 5:8-13, Romans 10:9, James 1:21, Ephesians 2:8)
God's Word to us in both Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man; they are the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)
The church is God's family, whom God chooses to work through. (Matthew 28:19-20, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 2:22, Hebrews 12:23)
Divine healing was provided for in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. (Exodus 15:23-26, Psalm 103:1-3, Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:16-17, Acts 5:16, James 5:14-16)
God's finale for man is a new heaven and a new earth. (2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1)
The return of Christ includes the catching away of the Church followed by the actual, visible return of Christ with His saints (the church) to reign with Him on earth for one thousand years. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Zechariah 14:5, Matthew 24:27, 30, Revelation 1:7, Revelation 19:11-14, Revelation 20:1-6)
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and will be judged according to their works. If your name is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil, his angels, the beast and the false prophet, you will be sent to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire which is the second death. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48, Revelation 9:20, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:8)
