Mission and Values

Freedom Vision

To bring people far from God close to God as we love Jesus and others faithfully.

Freedom Values

Jesus: is our message

The purpose of FREEDOM Church is to share the hope of Jesus.  Jesus is our message.  We are Jesus     people, not religious people.  Methods will come and go, yet our message will remain the same.

 

The Bible: is our foundation

God’s word is our guide, authority, and the infallible truth in everything.  We stand firm where it stands firm and remain flexible where it remains flexible.  We are intentional in keeping the Bible central to all ministry and teaching.

 

The Holy Spirit: is our empowerment

We rely on the power of the Holy Spirit for every aspect of Christian living and for the mission that God has    given us.  

 

People: are our heart

Our heart is for ALL people.  All people are loved by Jesus.  We make no apologies for being specifically     focused on reaching those far away from God.  We believe that our light is best seen in the night.

 

Generosity: is our privilege

Generosity is about giving more that what is required.  We see generosity as a privilege.  We’re generous with our time, talents and treasure.  We go first in our giving.  God has given richly towards us, it is our honor to give back to Him.

 

Excellence: is our spirit

We are going to always do the best with what we have.  We’re on time, engaged and prepared.  We don’t do things halfway.  If we’re gonna do it, it’s to the best of our ability.

 

Servant Leadership: is our identity

If you’re too big to serve then you are too small to lead.  We believe the greatest leadership is service to others.  Every leader is a servant first.  From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves.  Every role is different but they are all important.  If you aren’t helping, you aren’t helping.

 

Honor: is our calling

We are vocal with our honor, meaning we are not stingy with our words.  We submit to leadership and are thankful for spiritual authority.  We choose joyfully to submit to those God has placed over us.  We honor and care for those God has placed under our leadership.

 

Passion: is our pursuit

Everything we do, we do with passion.  From our worship to our service we do it with Holy Spirit energy.   Passion drives us.  Passion for Jesus, passion for people and passion for His church.

WELCOME TO VALUE

These are nonnegotiable tenets of faith that all Assemblies of God churches adhere to. This list is derived from the official Statement of Fundamental Truths. Click links below to see the complete original statement with scriptures.

  1. WE BELIEVE...The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

  2. WE BELIEVE...There is only One True God–revealed in three persons...Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

  3. WE BELIEVE...In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son Jesus was both human and divine.

  4. WE BELIEVE...though originally good; Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

  5. WE BELIEVE...Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

  6. WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.

  7. WE BELIEVE...the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

  8. WE BELIEVE... The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

  9. WE BELIEVE...Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.

  10. WE BELIEVE...The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

  11. WE BELIEVE...A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.

  12. WE BELIEVE...Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today and is provided for in Christ's atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins). [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

  13. WE BELIEVE...in The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church before His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. [1 of 4 cardinal doctrines of the AG]

  14. WE BELIEVE...in The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

  15. WE BELIEVE...A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

  16. WE BELIEVE...and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
