WHO WE ARE
Helping people FIND & FOLLOW Jesus Christ
Rooted in Prayer & Scripture
We show God our love by growing in knowledge of Him and by living according to His Word. We want to be a house of prayer and maintain a focus on the Word of God.
Isaiah 56:7, Ephesians 6:18, Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Matthew 4:4, 7:24; Acts 1:14, 4:31; 2Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Worship is a lifestyle and we want to worship God with everything that we do. We will gather on Sundays to celebrate Jesus, delight in His Word and worship Him, but our worship is not limited to 1 hour 1 day a week. We want to transition from focusing on 1 weekly act of corporate worship to daily personal experiences with Jesus.
Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Psalm 22:3; Matthew 18:20; John 4:24; Psalms 100:1-5; Colossians 3:16; Psalm 84:10
We are committed to pursuing God together. We want to be people who love each other deeply. We are a group of believers knit together through the study and worship of God with a common purpose of walking out the complexities of life and fulfilling the mission of sharing Christ together. One way we do this is by sharing a meal every Sunday after our gathering.
John 13:35; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Acts 2:42-47; Hebrews 10:24-25; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Ephesians 2:19-22; Romans 12:4-21; Ephesians 4:4-16; 1 Peter 2:4-10; Galatians 6:2
We believe that all believers are called to be and make disciples. The Holy Spirit has given each of us a gift that is to be used for building up the body. Our goal is that each one of us becomes like Christ and develops the ability to lead others to Him and to make disciples.
Matthew 5:14-16, 9:37-38, 28:18-20; John 8:31-32, 13:34-35, 15:16, 21:15-19; Romans 10:14-18; Colossians 1:25-28; Luke 9:23, 14:27; 2 Timothy 2:2; Mark 1:16-20;
The Church is not only for us, the Church is us and we exist for the world. We don't want to just be another church in Greeley, we want to be a church FOR Greeley. We want to make Jesus known by creating opportunities to love others through serving the community.
Mark 10:42-45; Ephesians 4:11-13; John 13:35; 1 Peter 4:8-11; Acts 20:35; Matthew 4:14-16; Galatians 5:13-14; Romans 12:10-14; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 1 John 2:5-6, 3:16-18; 2 Corinthians 9:6-14
The Word of God
The Bible is the infallible Word of God, written my human authors, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is truth and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct of Christian living.
2Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 1Thessalonians 2:13; Psalm 119:11, 89, 105, 160; Mark 13:31; John 8:31, 32; Hebrews 4:12; John 17:17; Proverbs 30:5; Isaiah 55:11
God the Father has revealed himself as the great "I AM." He rules the universe as an infinite, eternal, self-sustaining Spirit, perfect in love, holiness, justice, and grace. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and does not change. He mindfully and mercifully concerns himself with the lives of humankind.
Matthew 23:9; Revelation 1:8; Psalm 33:6-9, 90:2, 102:27, 103:19, 147:5; Isaiah 43:10; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:15-17; Exodus 3:14; Hebrews 4:13; Provers 15:3; Jeremiah 23:23, 24; Job 11:7-9; Romans 11:33; Daniel 4:34; Malachi 3:6; James 1:17; Numbers 23:19
The Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, is the Word made flesh. Born of a virgin, He came into this world fully God and fully man and lived a sin-free life. We believe in his miracles and teachings. He died on the cross, his body broken, to atone for the sins of man. He conquered sin and was resurrected on the 3rd day. He ascended into Heaven. He is our intercessor and will have a literal return to Earth. He is the only way to restore us to God.
Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18-25, 20:28; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1-2, 14, 20:30-31; Romans 3:25-26, 4:6-8, 6:9-10, 8:32; 2Corinthians 5:21; 1Peter 2:21-23; Acts 1:11; Hebrews 4:14-16, 7:25, 9:28; 1Timothy 3:16; 1John 1:7; Revelation 1:5-7, 5:9; Colossians 1:15-20, 2:9-10; Isaiah 53: 5-6; 1Corinthians 15:3-4
The Holy Spirit
The eternal Holy Spirit came into the world upon the ascension of Jesus into Heaven. He came to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He dwells within every believer, serving as helper, teacher, and guide.
Genesis 1:2; John 14:16-17, 15:26, 16:5-6; Acts 1:5, 7, 2:1-41; Romans 8:1-16; 1Corinthians 2:12, 3:16, 6:19, 12:1-31; Galatians 5:16-25; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; 1 Peter 1:2; Psalm 139:7
There is only one eternal God, who created all things. He exists in three equal persons- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:26; 1 John 5:7; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16, 28:18-20; Philippians 2:5-6; John 1:1-3, 14, 10:30, 14:26-27, 15:26; Acts 2:31-33; Ephesians 2:18; Luke 10:21-22
God created man in His own image by breathing His Spirit into him, creating both a spiritual and physical body. Each person is born male or female and is created in the womb with a unique personality designed by God to live forever. Man was created to have fellowship with God, who wants to have a relationship with every person. God wants to be actively involved in the lives of His people and gave them the freedom to make their own decisions.
Genesis 1:26-28, 2:7-8, 18-23; Psalm 8:3-6, 51:5-6, 139:13-16; Acts 17:24-28; Ephesians 2:10; 1Peter 5:6-7; Ecclesiastes 12:13; 1Samuel 12:24; Acts 17:27; Jeremiah 29:11-13; Genesis 3:1-19; Romans 1:18-32
Man chose to sin, which resulted in eternal separation from God in both physical and spiritual death. Sin is the transgression of the law or rebellion against God. Since the first sin, all men are born with a sinful nature, are sinners by choice, and therefore are under condemnation.
Genesis 2:15-16, 3; Exodus 20:1-12; Romans 3:10, 19-20, 23, 5:12, 6:23; Psalm 32:1-5; Jeremiah 17:5; 1Corinthians 15:21-22; Isaiah 1:13; Ezekiel 18:4; Revelation 20:11-14, 21:8; Hebrews 9:27; Ephesians 2:1; 1John 3:4; Joshua 1:18
Salvation is an unmerited gift from God, not earned through good works or any human effort. Salvation only comes through faith that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for man's sin through His death, burial, and resurrection and is demonstrated through repentance. Upon salvation, we become new creations, delivered from condemnation, and receive eternal life. Whosoever calls upon Jesus will be saved.
John 3:3-5, 16, 6:44; 1John 1:9, 5:12, 14:6; 2Corinthians 5:17-20; Romans 51, 8, 19, 6:23, 8:1, 10:9-10, 13; Proverbs 28:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Galatians 2:16, 3:13, 26; Titus 3:5; Revelation 3:20; Hebrews 9:24-28; Isaiah 1:18, 53:5-6; Acts 3:19, 4:12
Salvation makes us righteous before God. Sanctification is the continued act of separation from evil and dedication to God. It is the development of Christ's character in us through an ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and the Holy Spirit, which begins at regeneration and is not complete until we finish our race.
Hebrews 12:14; 1Thessalonians 4:3-8, 5:23; 1Corinthians 11:1, 2, 30:1; 2Corinthians 3:18, 5:17; Ephesians 4:22-24, 5:1-2; Romans 12:1-2; 2Peter 3:18; Philippians 1:6, 3:12-14; 2Timothy 2:1; John 17:17; Galatians 2:20; 2Thessalonians 2:13; Romans 6:1-23
The church is a body of believers, the assembly of the saints, unified through their faith in Christ, at both a local and universal level. The Church is also the individual believer, within whom the Holy Spirit dwells. The local church is essential in the believer's process of sanctification, meeting together regularly for edification, worship, fellowship, prayer, and "the breaking of bread." Christ is the head of the church. the church is powerful, built upon the Word of God, equipping the believer to bring the gospel to the world.
Matthew 16:15-18, 28:19-20; 1Corinthians 1:2, 12:13; Acts 2:42-47, 5:12-16, 14:23, 20-28; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22, 3:10-12, 4:11-16, 5:25-26; Colossians 1:18, 3:16; Romans 12:4-5; 1Corinthians 3:16; 1Thessalonians 5:11; Hebrews 10:23-25; James 5:14; Hebrews 13:17; 2Timothy 3:16-17
Through salvation, a believer becomes a new creation and strives for sanctification over the course of their lives. A Christian should live for the glory of God, seeking to reach the full stature of maturity in Christ. A Christian should not forsake the assembling of the saints, pray continuously, store the Word of God within their hearts, be guided by the Holy Spirit, be generous, bear fruit, love their neighbor, be a good steward, live as a godly example, spread the gospel, and make disciples.
Philippians 1:7, 4:6; Matthew 4;4, 5:16; 2Corintians 9:6-9, 13; Romans 12:1-21; 1Corinthians 4:2, 10:31, 13:11; Hebrews 4:12, 10:25, 12:1-2; John 14:15, 26, 15:8, 16, 16:13; 1John 2:3-6; Colossians 1:9-10, 3:23; 2Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 119:105; Galatians 2:20, 5:22-25; Ephesians 2:10; Mark 11:26, 12:31; 1Thessalonians 5:17; Titus 1:7-9; Acts 20:35; Luke 6:38
Baptism is a Christian's public declaration of faith in Jesus as their Lord and Savior in the symbolic act of death, burial, and resurrection. Baptism is proceeded by the repentance of sins, an outward profession of faith, and done through full immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is a step of obedience to a direct commandment of Jesus that allows us to follow in His example.
Acts 2:38, 10:47-48; 1Peter 3:21; Mark 16:16; Matthew 3:1-17, 10:33, 28:19; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12
Communion is the commemoration of Jesus's sacrifice on the cross in the same tradition as Jesus and his disciples at the Lord's Supper and the celebration of God's pardon and presence in our lives. Jesus commands us to have communion in remembrance of Him.
Matthew 26:26-29, 28:18-20; 1Corinthians 10:16-17, 11:23-26; John 6:35, 51-58
Baptism of the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing, Gifts of the Spirit
Jesus promised that God would send a helper to us when He ascended into Heaven. Upon salvation, the believer is filled with the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of new birth and is evident through speaking in tongues. Baptism in the Holy Spirit enables Christ followers to fully utilize public and private spiritual gifts for the furtherance of the Church and for personal spiritual growth. Divine healing was purchased by Christ's atonement and is wrought by the power of God through faith by the laying on of hands. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, divine healing, and gifts of the Spirit are available to all believers and are still fully operational in the world today.
Matthew 3:11, 8:14-17; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:5-8, 2:1-12, 16-21, 31-33, 38-39, 8:14-17, 19:1-12; James 5:14-16; Mark 16:15-20; Isaiah 53:3-5; 1Peter 2:24; Joel 2:28-29; 1Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; Romans 11:29, 12:6-8; 1Peter 4:10; 1Timothy 4:14-15; Psalm 103:2-3
Heaven & Hell
Each person's eternal destination is either Heaven or Hell, both literal places, determined at judgement by their response to the Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven is where God reigns eternally. Hell is eternal separation from God and is a lake of fire.
Hebrews 9:27, 11:16; Revelation 7:15-17, 14:11, 20:11-15, 22:1-5, 21-25; John 14:2, 5:28-29; 1Corinthians 2:9; Luke 23:43; Romans 10:9-13; Matthew 6:19-21, 12:36, 13:50, 25:41, 46; 2Thessalonians 1:9; 2Corinthians 5:10; 1Corinthians 4:5; 2Peter 2:4-9; Daniel 12:1-2
Resurrection & Rapture
After Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection, He ascended into Heaven. In the same manner that He went to Heaven at the end of the age, Jesus will return for the saints. He will resurrect and rapture the church. We do not know the time of His return, but just that it is imminent. Upon His return, the dead will rise first and the saints will rise up and meet Jesus in the air and we will be taken to Heaven.
Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:7, 9-12, 24:15; 1Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:1; Matthew 27:51-53; Daniel 12:1-2; John 5:28-29; 1Corinthians 15:51-57; Matthew 25:31-32
Reign of Christ
Following the tribulation, Jesus and the saints will visibly and physically return to reign over the earth for a thousand years.
Revelation 1:7, 5:10, 20:6; Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2Thessalonians 1:7-8; 2Timothy 2:11-13
