Word of Life AG exists for the purpose of
Leading Individuals to become Faithful & Effective followers of Jesus Christ
We accomplish this by living out our CORE VALUES:
We believe that in every area of life, from tithing to corporate worship, we should be truthful and selfless worshippers. (Psalm 95:6-7)
Openly Spirit Led
We adhere doctrinally to the 16 fundamental truths of the Assemblies of God and are unapologetically spirit-led. (Acts 1:8)
Relevant to Culture
We believe that the Church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure for the sake of reaching the lost for Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
Dependent on Prayer
We believe that we should devote time individually and corporately to developing intimacy with and guidance from God through prayer. (Luke 11:1-10)
Organized with Expectancy and Excellence
We believe that in being convinced God will show up, we do all things with excellence because it honors Him and inspires people. (John 6:69)
Faithful In Our Teaching
We believe that anointed teaching which communicates the truth of God’s Word is the catalyst for transformation in individuals’ lives and in the church. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Loving and Community Based
We believe that loving relationships should permeate every aspect of church life, that lost people matter to God and therefore ought to matter to us. (Matthew 18:14, 1 Corinthians 13)
Involved In Ministry
We believe that the Church should operate as a unified community of believers stewarding their spiritual gifts. (1 Corinthians 12 & 14)
We believe that the family unit functioning in a Biblically healthy manner is central to the plan and will of God. (1Timothy 5:8)
Established In A Small Group Culture
We believe that although spiritual growth is the responsibility of individuals; life-change happens best in small groups. (Acts 2:44-47)
In short, we are
CONNECTED. COMMITTED. CONTAGIOUS.
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the true Word of God that we apply to our lives as the standard for living.
We believe in one true God that created heaven & earth. He has revealed Himself in relationship to us as Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, birthed by a virgin, led a sinless life on earth while performing miracles, died in our place on the Cross & rose from the dead in victory.
We believe that the intention of God was for man to live in unity with Him forever, however due to the entertainment of sin, mankind now faces the consequence of physical & spiritual death.
We believe that Jesus Christ was sent to earth to live as man, to pay the price for our sin, and take on that consequence of death for us. It is through His death & resurrection that we are set free.
We believe that, following Jesus’ example in the Bible, water baptism is commanded in scripture to be a public symbol of a transformed life. Communion is to be a memorial of His suffering & death, & an opportunity to express participation in the Christian life together, as we wait for Jesus to come again.
We believe that all believers should expect & seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit, which is the power for life & service.
We believe that the physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in other tongues, as given by God, as it was in the early church.
We believe that we are made holy through the power & daily guidance of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the goals of the Church should be to seek & save the lost, to allow the worship of God alone to unify us, to build up believers in faith, & to be loving & compassionate to all the world.
We believe that we carry out the goals of the Church through ministry that leads others to know God & worship Him while being built up & having their needs met with love & compassion.
We believe that healing & deliverance from sickness is a privilege of belief.
We believe that the hope of the church is that those that have passed & those that are alive will experience Jesus unifying us together again in Heaven when He returns.
We believe that Christ will visibly return to reign on earth for 1,000 years, as He promised.
We believe that a real Heaven & a real Hell exist, and that each one of us will be judged, & will be subjected to a life with Christ in Heaven if we know Him, or away from Christ in Hell if we do not.
We believe that God will create a new Heaven & new Earth & restore us to His intention.
