TO LEAD PEOPLE TO BECOME
FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST.
Everyone has a purpose,
and anyone can make a difference.
Real Life Church exists to help people go from being observers of God’s story to being fully devoted to seeking God and serving people.
How do we do that?
Connect. Grow. Go.
We believe that life is lived best in the context of relationships. By connecting often, we help people to grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus. We lead our church to go and make a difference in the world around them, helping others to connect, grow, and go as well.
The church exists for the world: because everyone matters to God, we share the Good News of Christ with passion, enthusiasm, and authenticity.
With Christ as our example, we gladly yield to the authority of scripture into the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Our lives will look more and more like Jesus; our spiritual growth happens best through meaningful relationships.
Spirit-inspired, faith-filled, irrational generosity defines our lives; we believe that is more blessed to give than to receive.
The church is God's family, and there's a place for everyone at his table. We are brothers and sisters in Christ, and we belong to each other.
We have faith to see things yet unseen; our belief that Jesus changes everything inspires us to bold, dream-big action.
We are spiritual contributors; we joyfully offer our unique gifts to strengthen and encourage both the body of Christ and the world.
We equip, support, and invest in those who are called to kingdom work --
locally and globally.
Our Beliefs ground our mission in the truth of the Scriptures, giving purpose and meaning to all we do. These beliefs do not change over time; we cannot depart from these beliefs without abandoning our mission.
BELIEFS ABOUT GOD:
There is one living, sovereign God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus was sent by the Father to live on earth; he was fully God and fully human, yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and after three days, rose from the grave. In doing this, Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world’s debt of sin.
The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to empower all Christ-Followers for a life of serving and sharing Christ’s good news. He lives in every believer and is a constant helper, teacher, and guide.
BELIEFS ABOUT PEOPLE:
God created people in his image, and every soul matters to God.
All people are sinners and need God’s forgiveness.
Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God, with the promise of eternal life.
BELIEFS ABOUT THE CHURCH:
Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all believing people are members.
The Bible is the inspired word of God and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
Jesus Christ will return and there will be a final judgment.
THE ASSEMBLIES OF GOD:
Real Life is a part of a global fellowship of churches known as the Assemblies of God. The above description of our beliefs is a very basic, introductory view of our doctrine. For more information about the beliefs and doctrines of the Assemblies of God, visit the AG website!
