Our Values

Core 300 Statement of Faith

We prescribe to the Nicene Creed (modified to include the Holy Scriptures):

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day, he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

We believe in the power of the Holy Scriptures, inerrant in its original writing, God-breathed and written down by mortal men in service to him by the Holy Spirit; discerning, insightful, and light bearing into the human heart; convicting of sin; builder of faith; bearer of healing, spiritual nutrition, and warfare; and apt for training all Believers in righteousness, grace, love, and truth. Amen

 

Faith and the Man

  • The One God, who has no beginning or ending, is also three in One, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

  • That He has sacrificially ransomed mankind from Satan’s jurisdiction (due to the Fall in the Garden) and conquered Death

  • Anyone who believes in Christ’s first coming, His life, death and His resurrection and ascension into Heaven, then the gift of His sinless life by crucifixion, has provided the complete act of salvation and forgiveness of sins and has the promise of eternal life with God. Requisites to walk in newness of life is to repent of their sin, confesses Christ as their only Savior.

  • That his church is the highest authority on earth and is called to make disciples, who then are to make disciples, then release them to discover the dream god had when he made them. All people on earth shall see God’s love, courage, and good works in us, and bewdrawn to Jesus because of it. And we, as the Bride of Christ, await His imminent return to earth as the Warrior-King of Kings.

  • That, according to this gospel, the purpose of Jesus’ coming was to establish the Kingdom of God here on earth, and this is being realized today through his believing, active and serving church, led by Kingdom men who have eschewed the values and treasures of the World and the Flesh in exchange for Kingdom values and treasures.

  •  That God has ordained from creation, the primacy of the role, dominion and authority, earned in this short life through sacrificial, servant leadership, to the man.

  • That much of the redemptive nature of God’s Kingdom is meant to be lived out in each believing man’s immediate sphere of influence. The attributes of righteousness, joy and peace, flow to, and through the man to his bride, family, workplace, church and community, for God’s glory alone.

  • That the method of establishing his Kingdom here on earth is always begun and sustained through believing prayer, as prescribed by Jesus, and modeled in scripture and church history by the Saints. As we bind our hearts together in love and one accord, “the fervent prayer of a righteous man is effective and powerful.”

  • That this Kingdom comes in the midst of struggle against the constant and pervasive sphere of evil into which everyone is born. There is real yet invisible warfare defined as the flesh, the world system and the Devil. All of which was overcome by Christ and us, if we walk in Him.

  • That violent men of God must take Kingdom ground by force, through faith and a pure life.

  • Finally, that the man cannot stand alone and win this war. He must transparently open his life to a trusted circle of committed men, and to his wife, if married. God will not allow for a man to succeed vertically as a solo soldier without living in horizontal alignment with a trusted few–a band of brothers.
