Learn Our History
Twenty nine years ago, there was no burning bush, no pillar of fire, no star shining in the east. Nothing. There was only one man with a pull on his heart; an unction, an anointing on his life.
The Church Without Walls is committed to bringing men and women who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ into fellowship with Him and into responsible church membership through
- Equipping Believers
- Enriching Persons
- Evangelizing People
- Edifying Missions
“LEAPing beyond our walls into your world.”
Vision means “to see.” The question is, “What are you looking for?”
Four (4) things that we see:
We see ourselves Leading … in the community, schools, marketplaces, and government
We see ourselves Evangelizing … communicating the Good News of Jesus Christ
- We see ourselves Assimilating … through strategic planning & implementation
- We see ourselves Proclaiming … preaching truth not only in the world but in action
When we have a vision, it will do three (3) things:
Energize …activate or invigorate
Synergize …create an enhanced, combined effect through cooperative interaction among groups
Galvanize …arouse to awareness or action
What We Believe
We believe in God
We believe there is only one true and living God. He is immutable, indefatigable and infinite. He is not only a reality. He is the Ultimate Reality, an intelligent Spirit, and the Creator of all. He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Christ in present tense empowering the believer, energizing the church and encouraging Christians that God is still with us. He convicts us of sin. He points us to truth. He leads us into righteousness.
We believe in the Scripture
We believe that the scripture is God’s Word. It is his written authority for the Church. The scripture was given to ordinary men through inspiration. The scripture is inerrant in principle and infallible in content.
We believe in Salvation
We believe in God’s saving grace; that the blessings of salvation are free to all through the Gospel; that the requisite of acceptance is a thankful, penitent and obedient faith; that nothing interferes with the salvation of the sinner except his refusal of the Gospel. Man’s disbelief is his condemnation.
We believe in Baptism
We believe baptism is an ocular demonstration of God’s inward renewal in the life of the believer. In baptism our names are changed. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit we are placed under the authority of God’s power and protection. It is the symbol of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection to a new life. It is a prerequisite to the privileges of the church in relation to the Lord’s Supper. Jesus Christ took bread and wine established them as the imperishable symbols of the church. The Lord’s table is open to all people in the faith who desire to fellowship with Him.
We believe in Jesus
We believe Jesus is Savior, Lord Christ, and the incarnate reality of God. He was the walking revelation of God’s love to humanity. He embodied grace. He died on the cross for the redemption of God’s creation. He got up on Easter morning to confirm to the world that God is still in control of Heaven and Earth.
We believe in the Church
We believe in the church. The church is the prolonged incarnation of Jesus Christ; His body, bride and building witnessing to the world through word and sacrament. The church is a fellowship of regenerated men and women called out to live together in community life.
We believe in Humanity
We believe man was created in the image of God. God breathed his life into man. Man voluntarily rebelled against God and fell from a state of perfection, thereby experiencing separation from God. Consequently, all men are sinners. By choice, man is redeemable through Jesus Christ in his only hope to experience once again the peace of God.
We believe in Justification
We believe that justification is being brought into a right relationship with God. His position is accomplished without consideration of good works (of righteousness). That justification is the pardoning of sin, the gift of eternal life displays God’s love for human-kind, and that by faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ was His righteousness given to us.
We believe in the Virgin Mary
We believe in the Virgin Birth, Mary, mother of Jesus, conceived him by the Holy Spirit. He is without sin. He was born of a virgin as no other man in the past or in the present can ever be born. He is both the Son of God and God the Son.
