Our mission at 'Church on the Street' is to win and build people for Christ.
Our ministry's largest target is the homeless and the incarcerated. Our purpose is to reach these people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, providing food and temporary shelter, as well as a residential program for those who want to be discipled and equipped to re-enter society successfully.
The Divine Inspiration of the Bible (2 Tim. 3:16)
We believe the Bible is "God-breathed" and the words planned by God's creative design.
God's Word: Read It !! Study It !! Memorize It !! (2 Tim. 2:15)
We believe God's Word is the only conclusive source of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding concerning ultimate realities waiting to free and enrich those who will pursue its wealth.
What is God like ? (Acts 17:23)
We believe that He is Omnipotent (all-powerful), He is omniscient (all-knowing), and He is omnipresent (present everywhere).
What does the Bible say about the Trinity ? (2 Cor. 13:14)
We believe in one Sovereign God, consisting of three divine persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Pressing In (Luke 16:16)
We believe the kingdom of God is eternal. It is advanced through preaching, impassioned prayer, ….expectation for the miraculous, and a heart on fire for Jesus.
Tribulation (Acts 14:21, 22)
We believe the power and the kingdom do not make one immune to life's struggles, but they do bring the promise of victory.
PRAYER & FASTING
Birth Signs & Wonders (Acts 13:1 - 14:28)
We believe ministries stand between God's abundance and human need. Supporting them by prayer and fasting will birth signs and wonders as God confirms His Word.
God's Mercy Linked with Human Need (Ezek. 22:30)
We believe God is looking for intercessors (those who intervene with prayer & fasting) to stand "in the gap," bar intruders, and usher in God's mercy.
The Holy Spirit at Work (Matt. 1:18, 20)
We believe that the activity of the Holy Spirit is evident at every phase of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. It was by the power of the Spirit that Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb.
The Great Commission (Matt. 28: 16-20)
We believe in the Great Commission. The disciples are commanded to go and make disciples of all nations, "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit".
Committed Action (Prov. 24:11, 12)
We believe we are responsible to our generation and accountable to God to spread the gospel.
Christ Final... Promise (Acts 1:8)
Let us first receive the Holy Spirit's anointing - power to act - then we believe we shall find the lost and boldly declare Jesus as the Son of God.
How to be saved ? (John 3:3)
We believe when you open your heart & receive Him, He comes into your heart - through His Holy Spirit, and begins to live His life in you. Now it is your privilege... to confess what God has done for you!
Can I lose my salvation ? (Heb. 6:4-6)
We believe we must seek to live a life that is pleasing to Him. But the idea that one act of sin would cause you to be thrown out of God's family is not biblical. However, act[s] of sin/rebellion will steal the joy of your salvation.
Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38, 39)
We believe God is offering the baptism of the Holy Spirit to people who need only to reach out, accept it and then enjoy the blessing.
Can I live a holy life ? (Matt. 5:8)
We are not made holy by doing good things. We are made holy by faith in Christ, just as we are saved by faith. We believe, little by little, as we grow and live with the Lord, we will become more like Him.
What does the Word say ? (1 Cor. 13:10)
We believe the Word instructs us to welcome the Holy Spirit's gifts and ministries in our lives, to round out our sufficiency for ministry to a needy world - through the Word preached and the Word confirmed.
A more excellent way.... (1 Cor. 12:8-10)
better than just receiving the spiritual gifts is when love is the motivating factor. It's like finding water in an oasis and desperately looking for a container so you can bring water to someone who is dying in the desert. Spiritual gifts are like that container. The container isn’t useful by itself, but when it is used by somebody who has love and who has found what can give life to a thirsty soul, then it becomes incredibly useful.
God's Design (Gen. 2: 23-25)
We believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman permanently united spiritually, emotionally, and physically in a lifetime bond of loyal love.
Strength of Unity (Ecc. 4:12)
We believe where two are closely joined in holy love and fellowship, Christ will by His Spirit come to them; then there is a threefold cord that is not easily broken.
That blessed hope! (1 Thess. 5:7)
We believe there will be three announcements of the Lord's second coming: a shout, the voice of an archangel, and the trumpet of God. Therefore let us not sleep, as other do, but let us watch and be vigilant.
The believers promise! (1 Thess. 4:15-18)
In addition, there will be a threefold promise to believers: the dead in Christ shall rise; we who are alive will be caught away with them; and we shall always be with the Lord.
