MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission is to love people where we are, with what we have, when we are there.

 

VISION

Our vision is to create an Inn where people are treated as though their tab is on Jesus and their welcome never expires.

 

BELIEFS

The Trinity

We believe in & affirm the Trinity of God The Father, Son & Holy Spirit as three distinct persons of our Lord, all three possessing equal power, authority & character.  We believe this is the One True God and there are no other beings worthy of praise and glory.  We believe our God is deeply romantic and is obsessed with showing us His goodness.  More than this, we believe God desires a personal and intimate relationship with every person who ever has and ever will exist.


John 5:21-23; 10:30; 14:9-10, 16 // Genesis 1:26 // Matthew 3:16-17 // 28:19 // Deuteronomy 6:4 // 1 Corinthians 8:6 // 2 Corinthians 13:14 // James 2:19 // 1 Corinthians 12:13 // Isaiah 61:1 // Mark 1:9-11 // Luke 1:35 // Romans 8:9-11; 14:17 // Hebrews 1:8-10 // James 2:19 // 1 John 5:7-8 // Ephesians 4:4-6




The Father

We believe the Father is all powerful, all loving, unchanging, all knowing, ever present and eternal.  We believe He is the head of the Trinity, not in power but in position.  We believe that the Lord is both a warrior and a caretaker.  We believe He sent the Son to die for our sins that we could be reconnected to His family & welcomed home.  

Isaiah  30:18; 45:5; 61:8 // Revelation 22:13 // Job 38 & 39 // Exodus 3:14; 15:3 // Revelation 21:3 // Numbers 23:19 // Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2 // Psalm 11:4-6 // Malachi 3:6 // John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1 // Acts 17:28 // Romans 3:3-4




The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is an equal part in the Trinity and accompanies us as a gifted helper from the Father.  We believe the Holy Spirit is preparing the Church as a Bride for the Son.  We believe the Holy Spirit has always been and will always be a definitive person of the Trinity and is of equal importance to the other persons of the Trinity.

John 15:26-27; 16:7-14 // Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; 19:2 // Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49, // Genesis 1:2 // Psalm 51:11; 139:7 // Isaiah 61:1-3 // Joel 2:28-32 // Mark 1:10 //  Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2 // Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27 // 1 Corinthians 3:16 // Ephesians 1:13-14 // 2 Peter 1:2 // Revelation 22:17




The Son

We believe that the Son was born into this world, lived the life we never could, died the death we deserved, and rose to life displaying His power and authority over even the grave.  We believe this man was Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God and we believe that His name is above every other name.  We believe that He is the Bridegroom of the Church and that He will come again to take His Bride to the place He is currently preparing for us.


John 1:1-14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 14:6-9 // Philippians 2:9 // Isaiah 7:14; 53 // Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6 // Luke 22:70; 24:46-47 17:1-5 // Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56 // Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4 // 1 Corinthians 8:6 // 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 // Galatians 4:4-5 // Colossians 1:15; 2:9 // 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16




The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the written and inspired word of God.  We believe that the Bible is infallible, timeless, authoritative, and accurate.  We believe that God spoke inspiration to the writers and that their words were guided by The Holy Spirit.  We believe that the Bible is the single most important book in existence and that there is no other book like it.  We believe that the word of God will never pass away and that it has never and will never be proven false in even one single word.


2 Peter 1:21; 3:16  // 2 Timothy 3:15-17 // John 1:1; 5:39 //  Hebrews 4:12, Ephesians 6:17, Matthew 5:18; 22:29; 24:35 // Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12 // Deuteronomy 4:1-2 // Psalm 119:11, 89, 105 // Isaiah 40:8; 16: 13-15; 17:17 // Romans 15:4; 4:1




Man

We believe that all people are created in the image of God, body, soul and spirit.  We believe that all people have the right to life and the freedom to choose the love of Jesus for themselves.  We believe that this is a personal choice and can not be made by anyone else.  We believe that life begins at conception and that we are masterpieces formed by the hands of the Most High God.


Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3 // Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5 // Isaiah 6:5 // Jeremiah 17:5 // Acts 17:26-31 // Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25 // 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22 // Ephesians 2 // Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11




The Church

We believe that The Church is the Bride of Christ.  We believe that The Church’s responsibility on earth is to be a group of people partnering with Jesus to care for their neighbor.  We believe that we are commissioned by Jesus to go out into all nations and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ boldly.  We believe that God desires not only to have relationships in the next life but in this one as well.  We believe God wants to be intimately involved in even the smallest details of our lives.


2 Corinthians 11:2 // Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20 // Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28 // 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12 // Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32 // Colossians 1:18; 3:15 // 1 Timothy 4:14 // 1 Peter 5:1-4 // Revelation 19:7-9 21:2-3


Sin

We believe that all have sinned and that sin bears the consequence of death.  We believe that sin exists and is committed when we step outside of the moral law God has written on every human heart.  We believe that the result of sin is separation from God.  We further believe that Jesus died to remove our sins and that all who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior are no longer sinners but saints. We believe that this one sacrifice removes our sins past, present and future.

Romans 3:23; 5:8-19; 6:23 // Genesis 2:17; 3; 4:4-7 // 1 Corinthians 10:13 // Galatians 5:19-21 / 1 John 1:8-10 // Mark 7:20-23 // James 4:21 // Proverbs 5:1-22 // Isaiah 64:6




Salvation

We believe that salvation comes through conviction from the Holy Spirit leading to the acceptance of Jesus’ sacrifice and belief in His resurrection.  We believe that this is a personal decision and that God does not force us to believe in Him.  We believe that God’s desire is for all people to be saved.  We believe Jesus is the only name by which a person can be saved and that salvation cannot be taken away.  We believe that nothing can separate us from the love found in Christ Jesus.


Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7 // Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6 // Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32 // John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24 // Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31 // Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-19; 6; 10:9 // 1 Corinthians 1:18; 12:3 // 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 // Galatians 2:20; 3:13 // Ephesians 2:8-10 // Philippians 2:12-13 // Hebrews 9:24-28 // Revelation 3:20




Atonement

We believe that the blood of Jesus covers the sins of the entire world but the benefits of the blood are only available to those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and savior.  We believe that your eternal destination is based on your belief in Jesus or lack thereof.  We believe that it is impossible to work your way into Heaven, it is a gift to be received not a reward to be earned.


Ephesians 2:8 // Romans 3:24-25; 5:12-19; 6:8-10 // 2 Peter 1:9 // Exodus 12:5 // 1 John 1:7-9




Eternity

We believe that man is an eternal being.  We believe that both heaven and hell are the eternal destinations from which we choose.  We believe that those who believe in Jesus will get a new body in Heaven when they leave their earthly body behind.  We believe that those who refuse the gift of eternal life will be sentenced to eternal suffering in hell.  We believe that each individual decides where they spend eternity based on their actions and beliefs.  We believe that God does not send anyone to hell but rather judges and sentences based on the moral law He wrote on our hearts.  We believe that the only way to avoid eternal suffering is belief in Jesus and that salvation is the greatest gift ever given.

John 2:25; 3:16, 36; 5:11-13 // Romans 6:23 // Revelation 20:15 // Jeremiah 32:38




Spiritual Gifts

We believe in all of the spiritual gifts mentioned in the Bible.  We believe that the Lord is still active in our world and that He still heals.  We further believe that all of the Church can operate in these gifts, though some may operate in a gift more frequently based on their calling, anointing and belief.


Ephesians 3:16 // 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 // 1 Corinthians 14:32 // John 3:34 // Romans 12:3 // Jeremiah 1:1




Prayer

We believe that prayer is our method of directly communicating with the God of the universe.  We believe that prayer does not have a specific formula but rather that God desires greatly to talk with us.  We believe prayer is both speaking and listening.  We believe that God still speaks and that we are able to hear Him.  We believe that prayer is incredibly important and it is our single greatest tool as believers.  We believe that Jesus Christ gave us authority over the enemy and all of his schemes and that prayer is our outlet to use that authority.

James 4:7; 5:16 // Luke 10:19 // Matthew 17:20; 26:36-56 // 1 Kings 18:20-40; 19:11-13 // 1 Corinthians 14:5




The Devil

We believe that we have an enemy known as the devil.  We believe that he was cast out of heaven along with one third of God’s angels known as demons.  We believe that the devil is a fallen angel as well and that his authority was stripped away by Jesus when He died on the cross for our sins.  We believe the enemy is a liar who is trying to take as many people to hell with him as he can. We further believe that the blood of Jesus, the word of our testimony, and not fearing death are our weapons against him.  We believe that if anyone desires to be saved that the enemy is powerless to stop them.


Genesis 3:1-7 // 1 Peter 5:8 // Ephesians 6:11-12 // James 4:7 // John 8:44; 10:10 // Revelation 12:7-12
