what we believe
We Value Lordship [James 4:7] Jesus Christ is the head. [Ephesians 5:23] We live under His government and order. His Lordship governs all ordinances of the church, including water baptism, communion and marriage. We Value Worship [Matthew 22:37-38] We believe that worship is integral to fulfilling the Great Commandment. We further believe that worship is the cornerstone of our relationship with God. We Value Relationship [Matthew 22:39-40] We place great emphasis on the fellowship of believers. We believe that true fellowship comes with submission to one another. [1 Peter 5:5] We Value Leadership [2 Corinthians 13:10] It is our contention that to be effective, those in leadership must be friends first, leaders second. Great followers become great leaders. Servanthood is the gateway to ministry.[1 Corinthians 9:19] We Value Discipleship [Matthew 16:24-25] We encourage our membership to become disciplined followers. We Value Stewardship [Luke 12:42-44] We strive to set biblical patterns for giving and prosperity. We recognize that time is given to us by God to use effectively. We Value Sonship [Ephesians 1:5] We are not merely servants of God; we are sons and daughters. We believe strongly in the value of inheritance.
- Statement of Faith The Holy Scriptures: We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the true, immutable, steadfast, authoritative, written Word of God; that they were written by men of old as they were moved upon and inspired by the Holy Spirit. These scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. [2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21]
The Eternal Godhead: We believe there is one true and living God eternally existent in three persons in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; equal in every divine perfection.... Full Faith Statement
- StructureMajor church decisions are made corporately by the core leadership team. However, the Senior Pastor has the final authority on every major decision.
Elders and leaders are appointed by recognition of the Senior Pastor and leadership team to serve indefinitely. They are never elected and do not serve "terms." Voting is unscriptural and never happens here.
Leadership is defined by completion of training, faithfulness, identity, and relationships, not by anointing, gifting, or popularity.
Basis for structure is carried out through LIFE Groups and the government of "twelve." We are still in the development phase of this strategy. We anticipate powerful leaders in a powerful church in the months and years to come.
Disciplinary action is determined and carried out as needed by LIFE Group leaders and the core leadership team.
Our approach to ministry is based on a Biblical model, which we refer to as the ”Antioch Principle”.
Antioch was a city in northern Syria, which housed a church that became a major center for Gentile believers. Men like Paul, Barnabas, Silas, Mark, and many others were sent out from this church.
Antioch did not only grow by local addition of members, but by trans-local reproduction into many nations and cultures.
The following dynamic attributes from the Church at Antioch are highlighted in Acts chapters 11 & 13. We seek to incorporate these same qualities and values here at Jubilee.
