WELCOME! WE ARE SO GLAD YOU FOUND US!
With the Lord’s help, I have been serving this great Church for over 35 years as a Senior elder along side my wife Sally. I am so glad you decided to find out more information about Restoration Community Church. A good place to begin is with our affirmed doctrinal shared beliefs. We are committed to discipleship while fulfilling the great commission to reach our neighbors with the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you have any doctrinal, gathering, or discipleship questions please reach out to any of our elders.
IS TO LOVE GOD AND OUR NEIGHBOR
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.
WE EXIST TO SEE PEOPLE RESTORED TO A DEVOTIONAL LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST WHILE ENGAGING IN DISCIPLESHIP OF OTHERS.
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.
we believe God calls us to
Embrace The Person of Christ
coming together to worship him and grow in our understanding and application of his word through small and large gatherings
Equip one another
through God’s word and its application lived out in Biblical relationships, care and support
Engage with the Gifts and Resources God has provided
to strengthen the church, meet needs in our community and to reach out with the gospel hope through local and foreign missions
WE AFFIRM SHARED DOCTRINAL BELIEF.
ADOPTED BY DESIRING GOD
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is the infallible Word of God, verbally inspired by God, and without error in the original manuscripts.
We believe that God’s intentions, revealed in the Bible, are the supreme and final authority in testing all claims about what is true and what is right. In matters not addressed by the Bible, what is true and right is assessed by criteria consistent with the teachings of Scripture.
Therefore, the process of discovering the intention of God in the Bible (which is its fullest meaning) is a humble and careful effort to find in the language of Scripture what the human authors intended to communicate. Limited abilities, traditional biases, personal sin, and cultural assumptions often obscure Biblical texts. Therefore the work of the Holy Spirit is essential for right understanding of the Bible, and prayer for His assistance belongs to a proper effort to understand and apply God’s Word.
