OUR CHURCH

Mid-Cities Church


WE ARE A GROUP OF DEDICATED INDIVIDUALS PASSIONATE ABOUT SERVING THE LORD.


The heartbeat of our church is to see lives changed by the power of God's Spirit.  When Gods Spirit moves on us, we move closer to Gods plan for our lives.  We believe the Holy Spirit draws men and women to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service to others. The church’s role is to glorify God and serve those in need. 




MID-CITIES CHURCH CONSISTS OF FOUR CORE VALUES.



LOVE


WE MUST LOVE GOD WITH ALL WE ARE.

GROW

 

WE STRIVE TO CONTINUALLY GROW

IN FAITH.

SERVE

 

WE COMMIT TO DISPLAY GOD'S LOVE 

THROUGH SERVING OTHERS.

GO

 

STANDING STILL IS NOT AN OPTION, WE

MUST GO AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

OUR VALUES

We are here for you




WE PREACH GRACE NOT GUILT

We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone and that we should follow in his steps. Who are we to pass judgment and not extend grace, when we ourselves have sinned and recieved grace?  We believe we should love the sinner, not banish them.  Our passion is helping others to get past their past, and introduce them to a God who loves them unconditionally.


WE WORSHIP HARD AND PRAY HARDER

We believe that Jesus is central to everything.  We believe that prayer is a direct line to God, and that we should speak to Him every chance we get.

Worship is our chance to praise God and we take joy in doing so.


WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF FELLOWSHIP

We are called to join in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

We believe that reaching out to the lost and engaging with them will strengthen our bond with each other through God.


WE EXIST FOR OTHERS

Jesus called us to go out and spread the word of God.  We believe that this is not done enough.  We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken.  We hope that you will join us in doing so.

OUR BELIEFS

The truth will set you free!


Go into all the world and teach the Gospel.



We believe that church should be a place where the Presence and Power of God is manifest in every service.


We believe in worship without inhibition and that the Power of God and Gifts of the Spirit are not only relevant for this day, but prevalent in every service.


We believe in the Great Commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy, and compassion.


We believe there is only One God (Due 6:4)  He is the createor of heaven and earth, and of all living beings.  He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Spirit (indwelling Spirit in the church today).


We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin.  Through baptism we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6, Colossians 2:11-14, Acts 2:38-39).


We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4).
