We Believe are 10 scripturally based statements that give context to who God is, who we are, the reality of eternity, and God’s timeless ways for humanity that lead to life.
Beliefs are the framework in which faith and values exist. God is holy and He created humanity for relationship with Him. His ways are higher and His principles are flawless. We however, are flawed and so we all fall short of the standards that we ourselves believe. This is not hypocrisy, rather, an awareness of our fallen state.
The pattern in scripture is that God is always willing to engage the broken story in order to make a better narrative, a new creation, a fresh start, and a clean slate. This is why God became man and sent Jesus to save us from our sins.
1) We do not ask “who is worthy?”. We ask “who is thirsty?”.
2) We do not ask “are you fixed?”. We ask “are you open?”.
We journey with people who want to follow Christ despite their struggles, whatever their story. Knowing every life journey is unique, We Believe is a framework for conviction, not an excuse for lack of compassion. We know God is involving Himself in our brokenness and all who have a desire to follow Christ are welcome.
There is much room within Kingdomcity for diversity and discussion on many matters of practice and faith and ultimately what each person believes is a personal matter. As a church, we can be accepting of all people without agreeing with those we accept. But these 10 statements hopefully give clarity to the major foundational truths that underpin our faith as we go on this journey together.
