Statement of Faith
It is our strong belief that Jesus Christ is Lord! There are so many things that distract and take away from the simple message of the gospel. Jesus said, “If I am lifted up, I will draw all men to myself.” John 12:32 It’s all about the message, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It’s that simple. It really is.
The bible starts in Genesis with a marriage in the garden and it ends with another marriage in the book of Revelation. Throughout all of scripture, we see that family really does matter to Father God. We place great emphasis on the building up of the family. We are intentional about developing strong marriages where husbands and wives learn to love one another with a biblical love and commitment. Additionally, God’s word teaches us how to be effective parents as we nurture the next generation of world changers. Therefore, we commit to building a high-impact youth and children’s ministry as we partner together.
In Acts 2 we see the Church birthed on the Day of Pentecost. Throughout the world today God’s Church is experiencing explosive growth because Holy Spirit is still active. We believe the spiritual gifts are for today’s church and that nothing eternal or significant is accomplished outside of the power of Holy Spirit. We welcome the use of the spiritual gifts at Restoration Church “…in a fitting and orderly way.” Corinthians 14:40
There is no substitute for spending time in the Word and coming to understand and value biblical truth. In a day like we live where there is so much confusion, we are committed to the eternal truth found in God’s word. We are committed to being a church that takes God at His word, stands on His truth, claims His promises, and lives on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
End Time Matters
It is quite evident that these days are filled with Biblical significance. We see prophecies being fulfilled almost on a daily basis. The Bible teaches us to be awake and alert as you see coming of the Lord drawing near. At Restoration Church, we talk about a “balanced vigilance” where we understand the days and times in which we live. The stakes are high and we want to be awake, alert, and reaping the harvest in these last days. It’s a great time to be alive, know Jesus, and minister to a hurting and confused world. We know how this story ends!
