WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • Mission Statement:

     

    FRESH START CHURCH strives to:

    • Pursue Christ
    • Love others
    • Serve our community, and
    • Share Him throughout our world

     

  • We hold these values as truth:

    Core Values:

    • Lost people matter to God.  He wants them found.  Luke 19:10
    • Prayer is the primary work of God's people.  Philippians 4:6-7
    • Everything we have belongs to God.  We are only His stewards. 
      1 Chronicles 29:14
    • Knowing and obeying God's Word is fundamental to all true success. 
      Joshua 1:8
    • Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple.  Matthew 28:19
    • Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we can accomplish nothing.
      1 Corinthians 2:4-5
    • Achieving God's purposes will involve taking faith-filled risks.  This always involves change.  Hebrews 11:6
  • How we want to practice these values:

    • Understanding and practicing personal priesthood – the reality that every authentic Christ follower has the opportunity to go to God and expect
      Him to hear them and them to hear Him.
    • Understanding the Holy Spirit's spiritual gifting and putting those gifts to use in everyday life.
    • Express a personal Grace Story – telling those within our circles of influence that God is alive and active in our lives.
    • Personification of the Fruits of the Spirit – the one thing the world ought to see different in Christ followers
    • Expression of some sort of Biblical Stewardship.
    • Spiritual accountability for others following Acts 1:8 mandate
