Jeremiah & Selam Reed
Our Beliefs are based on what the Bible says. Plain and simple.
We teach from the Bible, we live by the Bible and we Love because of the Bible.
We believe… the Bible is God’s message to us.
so we seek… to understand and obey its truth.
We believe… there is one God who is three persons.
so we yearn… to know Him in all of His complexity and beauty.
We believe… Jesus is fully God and fully human.
so we rejoice… that Christ can be a bridge between us and God.
We believe… people, throughout history, have sinned against God.
so we are… deeply aware that we too are marked by willful disobedience.
We believe… God extends forgiveness to us through Christ.
so we repent… and rejoice in our forgiveness.
We believe…God offers freedom from sin’s grasp.
so we live… lives that are pleasing to God.
We believe… followers of Jesus must be empowered by the Holy Spirit.
so we expect… supernatural power in our daily lives.
We believe… that God can heal both the body and the heart.
so we pray… with faith and hope.
We believe… a mark of surrender to the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues.
so we pray… that God would grant us this supernatural gift.
We believe… in the Church.
so we live… in this community of faith, inviting others to join us.
We believe… God gives leaders as gifts to His Church.
so we serve… those whom the Lord entrusts to us.
We believe… God commands his followers to celebrate communion and baptism.
so we practice… these symbolic actions, reflecting on their significance.
We believe… Jesus will return to claim His Church.
so we live… in expectancy of His coming.
We believe… Christ will one day be seen clearly as King on earth.
so we live… as citizens of His Kingdom now.
We believe… God is the ultimate Judge.
so we live… knowing that our choices will echo through eternity.
We believe… we will live with God forever.
so we live… with hope regardless of our circumstances.
Does “Diversity” mean including LGBTQ Christians?
We welcome all. Jesus has paid the price of sin; if you believe that, you are a Christian. We teach that sin is anything that does not reflect God’s image and character. Our interpretation of God’s Word is that we are created for a marriage relationship between one man and one woman or celibacy. We believe that ALL Christians are called to serve the church and community. When it comes to the role of teaching, we never ask you to teach a theology you don’t agree with. As such, LGBTQ Christians, and heterosexual couples who are sexually active outside of marriage, may serve in certain areas of ministry outside of teaching.
