That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
That for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
That salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose atoning blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
In the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to be a witness, and in the exercise of spiritual gifts.
In the water baptism of believers, symbolizing the believer’s union in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the observance of the Lord’s Supper commemorating the sacrifice of our Savior for all mankind.
In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We Value Lost People
We know that God values and loves all people. So we follow the greatest commandment and the great commission and purposefully pursue those who have not yet received the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A passion for God compels us to a compassion for people.
We Value Connecting People
Christianity is about relationship and we believe in purposefully building authentic community in which to experience the abundant life God has called us to live. We pay the price to persevere through difficulties, and to prefer others over ourselves so we can enjoy the richness and security of healthy life-long relationships.
We Value an Irresistible Environment
We want to create an environment where every hindrance and excuse to meet with God is removed. We want every environment and every person that people encounter to reflect the deep love we have for God and for people. By our prayer, preparation, and excellence we want every setting to be one that points directly to God’s great love and limitless creativity.
We Value Spiritual Growth
The only true proof of a surrendered life is good fruit. We want to see people grow exponentially year after year in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is to see people becoming wholehearted worshipers of God and true disciples that exhibit lordship and obedience in every facet of their lives.
“Love God, Love People, Reach the World”
We understand that Jesus said the greatest commandment was to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength” (Mark 12:29-31). So in a brief restating of that scripture and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-19), we believe the key to fulfilling God’s purposes for our lives and the life of In Focus Church is to let everything we do be initiated, motivated, and sustained by this incredible love.
“Our vision is to raise up people who love God, love each other, and advance the Kingdom of God by taking this love into every facet of life.”
If we stay focused on our values and continue to fulfill our mission as a church, we will see great things happen. Our vision is to see lost people saved by the power of Jesus Christ and also see Christ followers become fully devoted disciples of Jesus. These statements are what we “envision” that would look like. We also understand that God is able to do more than we could ever ask or think.
Every person, no matter their ethnicity, background, age, status or station in life, would be drawn in by the passion for God that they see and the compassion for people that they experience. People who were once in bondage are set free, troubled pasts are forgotten in an instant, and the miracle of radically changed lives is consistently taking place week after week. From small groups reaching out, to church services designed with the great commission in mind, those that were once unfamiliar with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ find themselves captured by His love.
Authentic relationships being cultivated, maintained, and fought for generation after generation. Healthy families living life together, children growing up together, men locking arms with other men, women growing in grace and strength together, and deep life-long friendships being formed year after year. Transparency and vulnerability is present in everyone’s life. Encouragement, laughter, and joy fill each gathering. Communication and understanding come easily to those who give themselves to connecting properly. No one is isolated and as a result we are all strengthened and unified.
Entering the parking lot there is something noticeably different. Every step thereafter from the front door, to the foyer, the auditorium, the children’s ministry, the nursery and the entire campus shouts “God is here and His creativity and power are limitless.” Security and love permeate each different environment in such a way that each person cannot help but notice something unlike anything they have ever experienced before. Their surroundings present them with a choice to embrace God, receive His love and surrender to His grace.
Countless lives that experience victory over sin. People who were once a “mess” now have peace and joy in their lives. Abundant living is a part of the normal Christian life and numerous people begin to experience this freedom for living. There are people growing in their knowledge and love of God year after year. Servants of God grow and mature into friends of God. There are people whose impact on the world around them becomes greater and greater each passing year because of a greater passion for God.
