A community of people RESTORED to relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are GOING TOGETHER to share God's love with Clearwater and the world.
GOD. We believe God exists in three persons: God the Father, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit.
BIBLE. We believe the Bible is inspired by God and recorded by human authors under the direction of the Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible is without error and is vital for understanding our purpose in life.
RESTORATION. We believe humankind has been separated from God by sin. As a result, our primary need in life is for our relationship with God to be RESTORED. We believe Jesus Christ gave his life on the cross as a sacrifice to RESTORE to God whoever would place their trust in Him. We believe that when someone places their trust for RESTORATION in Jesus Christ they are filled with the Holy Spirit. We also believe they should publicly declare their identification with Christ through baptism.
GOING TOGETHER. We believe every follower of Christ is called to mission and community.
mission. Christianity was never meant to be lived out in isolation. Rather, we are called to share the sacrificial love of Jesus we've received with those around us. In Jesus' final words to his disciples while on earth, he commands them to GO and make disciples (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). This is the mission: We are GOING to share how Jesus Christ has RESTORED us to God.
community. In the book of Acts we see The Church in action. In Acts 2:42-47 we see followers of Christ demonstrating an unrivaled TOGETHERNESS. Acts 2:44 says, "all the believers were TOGETHER and had everything in common." This is the community: TOGETHER we study the Scriptures, we fellowship, we celebrate what Christ has done for us and we pray.
We are called to accomplish the mission by GOING TOGETHER.
