And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith." ~1John 5:4
Our prayer is that you will be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ, and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and grace. St. Johns is not just a church, we are a fellowship of forgiven and forgiving sinners who have found a new way to live as imperfect people in an imperfect world by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that God comes to us through the power of the Holy Spirit in His Word and delivers us from sin because of Jesus Christ. This we certainly know to be true. We also hold the view of the church found in the book of Acts, the Apostle Paul’s writings, and the rest of the New Testament. We are tasked by Christ to carry out the mission of the Holy Spirit, the Great Commission (Matt 28:19 20). Because of this, we hold the words of King Solomon, found in Proverbs 29:18, to be important to the life of this church ––
RECLAIM – Reclaim and realize your baptismal promise. You have been made children of God and an inheritor of eternal life. And by this, we are called into life with the body of Christ. Through this, we can see and be reminded of God’s love for you as you walk with God daily and in worship. (UP - worship)
RECHARGE – Reinvest in relationships through the study of God’s Word, serving one another, fellowship, and by creating a safe place for all God’s children. Through serving one another, we will be refreshed and recharged from the daily grind of our world. (IN – church life)
REVIVE – Reenter our lives (the world) with a fresh kingdom mind and heart. We go out into our worlds refreshed and ready to share the Word of God in Word and deed. This is where we carry out the call of Christ to make disciples. (OUT – evangelism, outreach)
