God

 

We believe that the only true God exists as a trinity; Father, Son, & Spirit. He created and upholds all things by the Word of His power. He is the God of truth, justice, and righteousness. 

 

Genesis 1:1 , Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2,

2 Corinthians 13:14, John 17:3, Revelation 4:11, Hebrews 1:3

Jesus

In Jesus Christ the fullness of God dwells . He is equal with the God as the second person of the trinity. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived as sinless life, and died in our place, and rose after 3 days to give us eternal life. He sits at God's right hand interceding for man.

 

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

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity. He is the spirit that raised Jesus from the dead and now lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. The spirit indwells, guides, instructs, comforts, and empowers all believers.

 

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

The Bible

The Bible is the inerrant, infallible word of God, written by human hand under the supernatural guidance of the Spirit. All scripture is God breathed and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction and training so that all the church is equipped.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105, Psalm 119:160, Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5

Humanity

All man was made in the image of God. Because of Adam's sin in the garden all mankind since is born in sin passed from his father. Mankind is therefor not possible to reach God so God came to us to ransom sinful man.

 

Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Colossians 1:21, Isaiah 59:1-2

Eternity

Man wasn't built to die. But because of sin death came into the world.  For those in Christ and saved by his blood, Heaven awaits. For all men apart from Christ eternity separated from the love of God in Hell is the only other sad reality.

 

John 3:16, 1 John 2:25, John 5:11-13, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15

Salvation

Jesus died to save man from the bondage of sin. Jesus and his death is the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to salvation comes by Jesus Christ. Salvation only comes by the spirit drawing man into relationship with God through Christ.

Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1

Eternal Security

Christ's salvation is once and for all. If your are in Christ you are truly a new creation and will persevere to eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the effort of man. You can't lose what you don't control.

John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 10:10-14, 1 Peter 1:3-5

OUR CORE VALUES

Core Values - Take III.jpg

WE believe a real relationship with Jesus results in a real community called the church. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, "The church isn't a community

you create but rather a community

   you're created for." It is a community

made of real people doing real life

together with

   Jesus at the

       center. 

We believe that when we live in real relationship with Jesus, we experience freedom from the

weight and

power that sin once held over all of us. We have a freedom to worship and invite others to share in this relationship.

We believe that when we live in real relationship with Jesus we are given a real life. A life that is made new and whole. We live in connection with other believers in the only life that matters. A life chasing after Jesus.

We believe that the way we 

gain a real relationship with

       Jesus is by responding to the good news of his word; the gospel. Jesus

tells us in his word that all who hear

truth hear his voice. Jesus sought us when we

were his enemies and tells us this through his word.

OUR VISION

MtnVu Defined - Take II.jpg

The Church we see is Generous. We believe that all that we possess is for Him to use as He sees necessary. The church uses generosity to change the world, remaining compassionate with It’s resources. We love others

with our time, our materials and our talents.

Everything given from God is a gift to be used

for His glory.

Without generosity we grow selfish

and introverted.

The Church we see is passionate. Life - real, honest, true

     life - can be found everywhere. We are passionate in

the way we worship our God, the way we 

  approach God’s word, the way we love, the way           we serve, the way we reach out and the way we

           give. Passion drives us to new heights,

      Passion brings us greater joy, Passion

turns pain into triumph, Passion

brings unity.

Without passion church

becomes a chore.

The Church we see is creative. It

creatively uses every resource

available to heal the hurting, inspire

the stagnant, and call the shallow to

deeper waters. The church I see is creating

art that can only be inspired by God. The

Church we see uses creative gifts not to keep

up with the culture but to create culture.

Without creativity we

lose inspiration.

   The Church we see has

an unshakable conviction

     toward growth. We must

reach those who are far from

     God with His love through us. We must each be committed to personal

   growth. His church must never stop growing, never stop reaching, never stop

     teaching and never stop calling people to

transformation that can only be found in Him.

     Without growth

stagnation takes place.

The Church we see is preparing 

generations, concerned with not

only our present time, but in the future

we will leave our children. The church we see is equipping young people to whom we may pass the mantle of leadership. The church we see is built not only for use, but also for future generations. The church we see lives longer than our leadership.

Without legacy we

             lose our future.
