WHAT WE BELIEVE
The following are some of the shared beliefs of Family Worship Center based on foundational truths taught in the Bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these Biblical doctrines.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
We believe in following the scriptural command to be baptized after coming to Christ in faith and repentance
We believe Jesus is the Son of God. He paid for our sins with His death and rose from the dead, overcoming the grave and offering us eternal life.
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit and in practicing the gifts He has given the church.
We believe that we must come to Christ with faith and repentance to receive the eternal life He offers.
We believe Jesus Christ is alive and active in our world through the power of the Holy Spirit. He can and does heal sick bodies, minds, and emotions.
We believe Jesus will physically and visibly return to Earth and will resurrect those who’ve died in Christ.
We believe that baptism, communion, footwashing, anointing with oil, matrimony, dedication of children, and confirmation are sacraments to be practiced reverently.
As a church, we will meet the needs of people through Jesus Christ, by providing individuals a way to become complete through evangelism, discipleship, worship, fellowship and ministry; according to the Word of God
"To share the good news of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible in our community and throughout the world" (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; II Peter 3:9)
"To help members develop toward full Christian Maturity and train them for effective ministry. To promote personal, spiritual growth through Bible Study and Teaching" (Ephesians 4:11-13; Matthew 18:20; II Timothy 2:2)
"To participate in public worship services that are celebrative and uplifting, and to maintain personal daily devotions" (John 4:24; Colossians 3:16)
"To encourage, support, and pray for each other as members of the family of God. To share our lives together" (I John 1:7; Acts 2:44-47; Hebrews 10:23-25; Romans 15:5-7; John 13:34-35)
"To serve unselfishly, in Jesus' name, meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those in our church, community and in the world" (I Peter 4:10-11; Matthew 25:34-40; I Thessalonians 5:11; Galatians 5:13).
Mission Statement: Love God, Love Others.
After Jesus resurrected, His Church grew as the apostles began preaching and teaching about Him. As believers were added, the apostles established regional or local bodies, places for Christians to learn and grow, worship, pray, serve, build relationships, and receive guidance and discipline from spiritual leaders. As a Christian, you have a place to belong. The Bible is clear on the benefits of belonging to a community of believers structured and governed in accordance with New Testament principles and practices. As a local church, Family Worship Center is a place to be established and strengthened in the faith as we meet regularly to worship and to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
Christian marriage is a God-ordained, lifelong covenant entered into publicly by a man and a woman with mutual consent and vows of faithfulness, uniting them both physically and spiritually. Scripture uses the sacrament of marriage to explain the covenant relationship God desires with His people, emphasizing the importance of purity. The Bible tells us that husband and wife become one flesh; any union other than a man and woman within marriage is sin, and a Christian should also not seek a marital bond with an unbeliever (2 Corinthians 6:14-15). As Christians, husband and wife are equal before the Lord (Galatians 3:28) and are to submit to Christ and to one another (Ephesians 5:21), moving beyond previous family bonds and beginning a new family.
Acts 2:38 tells us to “repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ.” By turning from the old lifestyle of sin and being immersed in water, a believer comes to relate to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” (Romans 6:4). If you have repented of your sins and made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life but you have never been baptized, we would like to help you take this next step.
Describe Every dollar we receive at Family Worship Center helps us deliver the Gospel and bless individual lives through our ministries and our missions. We bring our tithes and offerings to the Lord as acts of worship and obedience, knowing that everything we have is from Him: “‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it’” (Malachi 3:10). Just as God was able to multiply the loaves and the fishes in Mark 6, we trust Him to use our offering in miraculous ways.of your services
