Our Story

We are a non-denominational group of guys striving to get closer to God. Our mission is to bring men together to affirm that our identity is in Christ and to create disciples. Our approach is threefold:

Corporate Events

We hold Corporate events that meet every month. These events allow for a casting of the net for men to invite other men, co-workers, and business associates to attend. At this event we will expose men to fellowship with other men that is Christ-centered, masculine worship, testimonials, relevant and engaging speakers that have “draw appeal”, and finally prayer.

Elements

We encourage men to meet in small groups we call Elements. The Element groups provide a more intimate way for men to develop and build relationships. Elements are the glue to bind the men in unity and cohesion. In essence we are forming “tactical units.” To illustrate this principle using a military theme, when you have gone through adverse conditions and situations, you have “bled” and battled along side an individual, you will not disengage and flee the fight.

1 on 1 Discipleship

We encourage the men to find another man to disciple and execute the mission that Christ commands us in the Great Commission: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”(Matt 28:19-20 NIV)

Our Beliefs

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is the written Word of God; that fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, the Scriptures are an essential and infallible record of God’s self-disclosure to mankind and function as the supreme authority and normative rule of all Christian life, practice and doctrine; that they are totally sufficient and must not be added to, superseded or changed by later tradition, extra-biblical revelation or worldly wisdom. Every doctrinal formulation, whether of creed, confession or theology, must be put to the test of the full counsel of God in Holy Scripture.

The Trinity

We believe in one living and true God, infinite, almighty, perfect in holiness, truth and love, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that these are co-equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

God The Father

We believe in God the Father, the Creator of heaven and earth; that by his word and for his glory, he freely and supernaturally created the world out of nothing; that through the same word he daily sustains all his creatures; that he rules over all and, together with the Son and the Spirit, is the only Sovereign; that his plans and purposes cannot be thwarted; that he is faithful to every promise,
works all things together for good to those who love him and in his unfathomable grace gave his Son, Jesus Christ, for mankind’s redemption; that he made all things for the praise of his glory and intends for man, in particular, to live in fellowship with himself.

Jesus Christ, God The Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the eternal Word made flesh, supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; that he is perfect in nature, teaching and obedience; that he is fully God and is fully man; that he was always with God and is God; that through him all things came into being and were created; that he was before all things and in him all things hold together by the word of his power; that he is the image of the invisible God, the first-born over all creation, and in him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily; that he is the only Savior for the sins of the world having shed his blood and died a vicarious death on Calvary’s cross; that by his death in our place, he revealed the divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God; that having redeemed us from sin, the third day he rose bodily from the grave, victorious over death and the powers of darkness, and for a period of 40 days appeared to over 500 witnesses performing many convincing proofs of his resurrection; that he ascended into heaven where, at God’s right hand, he intercedes for his people and rules as Lord over all; that he is the Head of his body, the church, and should be adored, loved, served and obeyed by all.

God The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that the Holy Spirit unites believers to Jesus Christ in faith, brings about the new birth, sanctifies, empowers and dwells within every believer in Christ as an abiding helper, teacher, guide and comforter. We believe the Holy Spirit empowers believers for Christian witness and service, desiring to continually fill each believer and impart his supernatural gifts for the edification of the Body and the work of ministry in the world. We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit at work in the church of the first century are available today and are to be earnestly desired and practiced in an orderly manner; and that these gifts are essential in the mission of the Church in the world today.

Regeneration

We believe that man was created by God in his own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent and forsake sin and trust Jesus Christ as Savior have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and have become new creatures, delivered from condemnation and are recipients of eternal life.

The Gospel

We believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, the announcement that the eternal purpose of history has been fulfilled in the kingdom of God being brought within reach by the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ; that Christ’s death is a substitutionary and propitiary sacrifice to God for our sins that satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases his holy wrath while also demonstrating his mysterious love and revealing his amazing grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man; that there is no other name by which men must be saved; that at the heart of all sound doctrine is the cross of Jesus Christ and the infinite privilege that redeemed sinners have of glorifying God because of what he has accomplished. Therefore, we want all that takes place in our hearts, churches and vocations to proceed from and be related to the gospel.

The Church

We believe in the universal church, made up of those who have become genuine followers of Jesus Christ and have personally appropriated the gospel. We believe the Church exists to worship and glorify God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit; that it also exists to serve him by faithfully doing his will in the earth; that this involves a commitment to see the gospel preached and churches planted in the entire world for a testimony; that the ultimate mission of the Church is worship and the means by which this is accomplished is the making of disciples through the preaching and embracing of the gospel. We believe that when God transforms human nature, this then becomes the chief means
of society’s transformation.

We believe all members of the Church universal are to be a vital and committed part of a local church; that in this context, they are called to walk out the New Covenant as the people of God and demonstrate the reality of the kingdom of God; that the ascended Christ has given gift ministries to the church (including apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers) for the equipping of Christ’s body that it might mature and grow, and that through the gift ministries, all members of the church are to be restored and equipped for the work of the ministry, employing their God-given gifts in his service in relation to one another and to the world.

The Consummation

We believe in a hopeful future that expects the success of the gospel through the Church and anticipates the full restoration of all creation; that the consummation of all things includes the personal, visible, physical, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ , the resurrection of the dead, the judgment of the just and the unjust, the separation of those outside Christ from the benevolent presence of God into enduring eternal punishment, while those who are righteous in Christ shall live in glorious bodies and reign with him forever, serving him and giving him unending praise and glory.
