Word of Faith Christian Church is a non-denominational congregation. Our name is born from our belief and desire to be faithful to the Word of God. Christian is at the center of our name because Christ is the center of our beliefs and our lives.
We are conservative in doctrine and general standards of Christian practices. We follow the Wesleyan standards of the church and hold fast to reformed theology and teachings. We believe we must be part of the evangelization of the world and seek to cooperate with like believers of the Body of Christ regardless of denomination in our expansion of the Kingdom of God.
We are not practitioners of the doctrine referred to as "positive confession" nor are we affiliated with the Word Faith movement. Our faith is in Jesus Christ and not ourselves.
We're much more than a church to attend; we are a community centered on the person and mission of Jesus Christ. We are actively reaching out to the community around us so that they too can be redeemed and renewed by the Gospel.
“In essentials, unity... In non-essentials, liberty... In all things, LOVE.”
The Bible serves as our only authority in matters of faith and practice. Only that which is expressly taught in the Holy Scriptures can be made conditions of fellowship and obligation. In our effort to teach sound doctrine and the “whole will of God” (Titus 2:1, Acts 20:27), we stand strongly on the essentials as taken from scripture and presented in both the Nicene and the Apostle’s Creed.
Because we believe all true Christians to be members of the Body of Christ, we accept the denominational differences and positions on many of the issues that tend to divide Christians unnecessarily. In disputable areas where we hold convictions that cause disagreement, we are free to do so graciously (Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22; 1 Corinthians 13:2). In areas where liberal theology distorts the Word of God, we stand aligned with the conservative opinions taught by the early church fathers.
