Love- passionately love the city of Vancouver
We invite you to come hang out with us. We promise we don’t bite. There are so many misconceptions about God, Jesus, and Church floating around. The mention of God in a conversation makes most people want to run and hide. It is our heart to help people understand that God is amazing, and that our lives are incomplete without Him.
Truth- teach the Word of God
Did you ever wish life came with an answer book? No matter how tough the problem you could just turn to the back of the book and find the answer. We face tough questions everyday, “Does God exist? Is there a purpose for my life? Is there life after death? Why are all these bad things happening in the world…” We all face difficult questions everyday, and the good news is the Bible has answers. We want to help you answer life’s tough questions by helping you understand God’s Answer book, the Bible.
Repeat- “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature,” Mark 16:15
Now that you know the Good News, go share it. There is a lost world out there that needs to hear His truth, and a hurting world that needs to experience His love.
Bible: We believe that the Scriptures, which consist of the Old and New Testaments, are the fully inspired Word of God without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. The Word of God is the foundation upon which the church operates, and the basis by which the church is governed. We believe that the 66 books of the Bible supersede any and all earthly law in precept and principle (Isaiah 28:13; Nehemiah 8:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:3-4 and 1:21).
Trinity: We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory. We believe that the Trinity created all, upholds all, and governs all things (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8 and 48:16; Matthew 28:19-20; John 10:30; Hebrews 1:3).
God the Father: We believe in the person of God the Father—an infinite, eternal, personal Spirit—perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all those who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalms 90:2; Psalms 102:27; John 3:16 and 4:24; 1 Timothy 1:17; Titus 1:3).
Jesus Christ: We believe in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, teachings, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth (Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2, 8:58 and 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 1:2; Revelation 1:8).
The Holy Spirit: We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit—that He proceeds forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; that He does regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe the biblical gospel. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 16:8-11; Romans 8:26 and 15:13,16; Hebrews 9:14).We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and functions as their abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 6:13, 14:16-17 and 16:8-11; Romans 8:26) We believe the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is a distinct and separate experience to that of regeneration, occurring either subsequent to, or simultaneous with the experience of the new birth. We believe the baptism with the Holy Spirit is evidenced in the Christian’s life as a dynamic enablement to be a bold and more effective witness for the gospel. We believe that the supreme evidence of the Spirit-filled life is the fruit of the Spirit, and love. (Galatians 5:33-23; 1 Corinthians 13) We believe in and advocate the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit in the church regarding the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to the instructions outlined in 1 Corinthians 12-14.
