What We Believe

// CORE BELIEFS

THE BIBLE | The Lord desires us to love Him extravagantly. He has revealed Himself to us through the Bible so that we can walk with Him intimately. The story of the Bible reveals who He is and who we are and what it looks like to become the community that He is living through.  John 1:1-51

GOD | The Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the most marvelous relationship that has ever existed. They are love and life. Their extravagant love is what governs everything about Them and everything They do.  1 John 4:8

THEIR MISSION | The Father, Son and Holy Spirit entered the brokenness of this world in order to restore all of creation into their intended beauty and purpose. Through the life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, He has forgiven us and destroyed and dismantled the power of sin over our lives. As we trust Him and submit our lives to Him, He transforms our lives as His image bearers. Genesis 1:1-31, Ephesians 1:1-23, Romans 5:1-21

THEIR CHURCH | Jesus ascended in order to empower His church to help restore this broken world. They are living their mission through our surrendered lives and community.  Acts 1:1-26

// CORE VALUES

JESUS IS THE FOCUS
We are in relationship with God through the person and life of Jesus.  We refuse to be distracted by anything that takes our eyes off Jesus.  Hebrews 12:1-2 

IMPERFECT PEOPLE ARE WELCOME
We are a family of imperfect people being loved and transformed by God. Matthew 9:12

TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Healing happens when we slow down and allow God to reshape us from the inside out.  The power of the Spirit, the truth of the Scriptures, and dependence on God will change us. Romans 12:2

DISCIPLES ARE MADE NOT BORN
An authentic life is not automatic, it is the result of a passionate pursuit of Jesus.  We equip people to be and make disciples. Matthew 28:19

WE ARE A FAMILY
We are a family, living in community, fighting for joy and fueled by the gospel. We are more focused on how we love one another than what we consume. Honest feedback and feet to our faith is the atmosphere at Providence. Ephesians 2:19, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31  

WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER
To give every person the opportunity to respond to the gospel, we must collaborate with others. Philippians 1:5

IT'S THE BEGINNING OF THE END IF WE DO NOT REACH YOUNG PEOPLE
We are committed to reaching young people because they can serve God passionately, follow God faithfully, and change the world radically - Now!  We equip them with grace and truth to shape future culture from the inside out.  Deuteronomy 6:7, I Timothy 4:12
