Vertical

Ephesians 3:20

“now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church”

We believe the glory and presence of Jesus Christ, manifested within His church, is the fire and purpose of the Vertical Church. Rather than focusing our eyes on the limiting views of mankind, we look to Jesus, His name, His gospel, His presence, His grace, His truth, His glory, His Kingdom. We see the evidence of God’s glory through authentic life transformation.

We are committed not to seek public relevance, but to passionately pursue the transcendent glorious presence of the Savior.

BIBLICAL

Isaiah 55:11

“so is My Word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

We believe the Word of God is alive, and when the Word is spoken, action follows. There is no substitute for understanding the value of Biblical truth. In today’s onslaught of confusion, deception, and muddied lines, we whole heartedly seek the eternal truth found in God’s Word. Rather than seeking earthly experiences, we seek God’s Word for revelation and insight.

We are committed to being a Biblical church where people are loved, His truth is proclaimed, His Spirit is welcome, a place where life transformation happens like heaven on earth.

SPIRIT-FILLED

Acts 1:8

“but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses”

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.” Holy Spirit reminds us of what God said, enables us to hear His voice, and illuminates the truth of His Word. We do not have the capability, capacity, or power to accomplish anything before the Lord apart from Holy Spirit working within us.

We are committed, in all things, to invite Holy Spirit to empower and do through me what I simply cannot do on my own.

NEXT GENERATION FOCUSED

Acts 2:39

“For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself.”

We believe family really does matter to Father God. The Bible starts in Genesis with a marriage in the garden and it ends with another marriage in the book of Revelation. We place great emphasis on the building up of the family, developing strong marriages, and teaching fathers to lead their families in Biblical love and commitment. Building a high-impact youth and children’s ministry is a foundational priority using God’s word to learn how to be effective parents.

We are committed to partnering with parents to nurture the next generation of world changers, spiritual leaders, and difference makers.

MISSIONS-MINDED

Acts 3:6

“but what I do have, I give to you”

We believe God has called us to go and make disciples of all nations. This is not a passive activity, but an intentional sharing of the gospel message to the hurting and lost, not just through words, but spoken through acts of love and kindness. The same gospel that brought transformation in our own lives, inspires us to openly share; moving away from disoriented individualism to partaking in authentic Christian community. His second coming is soon, the urgent mission field is not just abroad, but also in our local communities.

We are committed to supporting missions bringing the hope of Salvation, teaching the unforced rhythms of grace and truth, and modeling an authentic following of Jesus Christ.
