The local church is distinctly unique among human organizations. Its distinctiveness is found primarily in that it is of Divine, rather than human, origin. The Lord Jesus announced that the “church” was His idea, and that He would be not only be the Head, but the primary builder of it. (Matthew 16:18) The church is not a building, denomination or even a list of beliefs and practices. The church is a people who have been called out of spiritual death, made spiritually alive in Christ Jesus, following Him as Savior and Lord.
Because of this uniqueness, we believe it is necessary to ensure that those who become members of this local church understand and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is where our relationship as followers of Jesus begins. We believe it important to grasp the mission He gave us to carry out and how we have been led to make that mission personal in our context. To assist potential members in these understandings, we offer a class called Entry Point. In this class we discuss:
· The Mission – Why we exist as a church.
· Core Beliefs & Values – The foundation of the ministry.
· Church Leadership – How the church is governed.
· Our Covenant – How we live as followers of Jesus.
