Culture and Beliefs

The Freedom Way
We Keep Jesus at the Center

We bring good news, not just good advice. It’s about what He has done for us, rather than what we can do for Him.

We Know Freedom is Worth Fighting For

We are contributors, not consumers. The church is not here for us; we are the church, and we exist for the world.

We Agree It's Not About Me

We are all about joy-filled generosity, because it’s more blessed to give than to receive. We work hard, we take initiative, and we follow through.

We Think Inside the Box

Limitation is what fuels innovation. We maximize what God has given us, rather than complain about what He hasn’t.

We Are People of Honor

Honor flows in all directions. To honor God, we must honor each other. We put people over programs, we fill the gap with trust, and we assume the best.

We Believe the Impossible is Possible

Because our ambitions are as big as the promises of God, we are faith led, bold, and audacious. We dream big, but we start small.

We Reject Good to Embrace Great

Focusing on doing a few things with excellence, rather than many things with mediocrity, allows us to accomplish more by doing less.

We Believe God Will Do It Through You

We empower people for their ministry, not just recruit them to ours. We believe feedback is a gift. So we are committed to maximizing your gift so that you can fulfill your purpose. We want to give as much as we can to people, as long as they can do it at a higher standard.

We Are Just Getting Started

We are on a lifelong journey of grace, growth, and gratitude. Our best days are ahead.

We Laugh Loud, Hard, and Often

We work hard, and we play hard.

Our Beliefs
God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has existed eternally in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:22-23

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

John 14:16-17

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

2 Timothy 1:13, Psalm 119:105

Humanity

Humanity is made in the image of God. Although God designed us to have fellowship with Him, we became alienated from God through disobedience. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. We are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts.

Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23

Eternity

You were created to exist forever. We believe that forever is spent in one of two places: eternally separated from God because of sin or in union with God because of His forgiveness and salvation. When you die, you will either spend eternity in heaven or hell. Eternal separation from God happens in hell. Eternal union with God occurs in heaven.

John 3:16

Salvation

Salvation is God’s gift to you if you’ll accept it. We can never make up for our sin with self-improvement or good works. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment you receive Jesus Christ into your life by faith.

John 1:12

Eternal Security

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and eternal power of God that gives this security.

John 10:29
