We are committed to starting God-centered churches and ministries that are Bible based.
If God is not glorified through our ministries, we have failed, no matter how much outward success we may enjoy.
Every ministry of our church must be rooted in God’s Word. The Bible is inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and therefore, must be the final authority for everything our church believes and does. We believe that the preaching and teaching of God’s Word is the catalyst for change in people’s lives, and therefore, holds the highest priority.
We are committed to exalting Jesus Christ.
In every ministry, we will endeavor to exalt Jesus Christ and His marvelous work of redemption through His death on the cross and His glorious resurrection. We desire for others to see Jesus in us, while at church and in our daily lives. Our ministry will not be people or program driven, but driven by an all-consuming passion to exalt our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We are committed to evangelizing the lost.
We are not here to simply exists for ourselves. We exist for others. We look beyond the walls of our church to serve and minister to non-Christians, demonstrating to them the love of Christ. Because of this, we must seek to connect with the world around us. While our mission and our message never change, we will constantly look for methods, and open doors in order to reach more people with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. We have several evangelistic outreaches here in Peru such as bus routes, visitation programs, public school outreaches, Bibles and blankets to homeless ministry, benevolence outreach, village meetings, military and police outreaches, abandoned and orphaned children’s ministry, and hosting missions groups(where we give away tens of thousands of Bibles and tracts yearly). We do not believe it is the lost’s responsibility to seek the church, but our responsibility to seek the lost.
We are committed to equipping and discipling believers in their faith.
Believers should be learning, growing, and changing as Christ lives His life through them. We believe that every Christian should be growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ. Our churches assist Christians in this process by offering Bible preaching and teaching, Programs and classes for all ages, Bible studies, discipleship classes, counseling, mentoring, retreats, and free conferences. We are constantly exploring new methods to better equip believers in their spiritual walk with Christ.
We believe in the absolute authority of Scripture.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We interpret the Bible literally. We believe the Bible to be the sole source of truth, divinely inspired and without error.
We believe in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
He was God in the flesh (John 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:16), born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23), and lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15).
He gave Himself to die on the cross as a complete and final sacrifice for mankind’s sin. 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; Ephesians 2:14-18
His death was followed by His burial and then His resurrection three days later.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
He ascended into heaven (Acts 1:10-11) where He was exalted to the right hand of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
Christ will one day return to the earth (Matthew 24:27-31; Revelation 19:11-16) to establish His Messianic kingdom over the entire earth as King. Zechariah 14:9-21; Matthew 25:31; Revelation 20:4-6
We believe that salvation comes by God’s grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
Every person is a sinner in need of God’s salvation. Romans 3:10,23; Ephesians 2:1-5
Salvation cannot be attained through our good works. Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 3:28; 2 Timothy 1:9
The moment people place their trust in Christ, God’s Spirit comes to dwell within them and they become part of the family of God forever. Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 3:26, 4:6-7
We believe that salvation is freely offered to all who will believe. 1 Timothy 2:4-6; 1 Timothy 4:10; Titus 2:11; 2 Peter 3:9; Revelation 22:17; 1 John 2:2; John 1:9-12
We believe in the autonomy of the local church.
Jesus Christ is the Head of this church and we as believers are His body. Ephesians 1:20-23
This local church is free from external control. It makes its own decisions concerning buildings, property, senior pastor, etc., as led by our Head, Jesus Christ. Colossians 2:4-7, 9-10, 18-19; Ephesians 3:16-21, 4:15-16
The heavenly kingdom of Jesus Christ is far greater than any local church. The church’s passion should be to grow the Body of Christ in the world through aggressive missions outreach. 1 Thessalonians 1:8
We believe that every believer has complete and total access to God.
Every believer has unlimited access to God through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:18, 3:12; Romans 5:2
You don’t need another human being to stand on your behalf in front of God. We all have equal access to God. 1 Timothy 2:5
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Every believer is indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation. Ephesians 1:13; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 2 Corinthians 1:22
The Holy Spirit is the believer’s guide and source of power for everyday life. Galatians 5:16-19; Ephesians 5:18; John 16:13-14
We believe the Scriptures must be rightly divided in light of Paul’s gospel.
2 Timothy 2:15; Galatians 1:6-12
Paul is the apostle of the Gentiles (Romans 11:13) and to him was revealed the dispensation of grace we live in today. Ephesians 3:1-9
God gave Paul the gospel, as well as sound doctrine for the church today. 1 Timothy 1:10-11; 2 Timothy 2:2; 1 Corinthians 14:37
Paul was given to the Body of Christ as our pattern to follow. 1 Timothy 1:16; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Philippians 3:17
We believe it is our responsibility to seek the lost and share with them the wonderful news that Jesus loves them and wants to have a personal relationship with them.
