Purpose & Mission

  • Philosophy of Ministry

  • Statement of Faith

  • The Basic Directives for Ministry

As God’s people called together in a gathered group of Spirit Filled Ministries, we have a command from the Word of God to obey the great commission. We are sent to exalt Christ, to encourage one another and to empower each person to evangelize with the excellence to go into the world to reach men for Christ.

Together, we reach up in worship to exalt Jesus Christ by praising, loving, thanking and following him in all things. (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Together, we reach in to be nurtured, educated and strengthened through the discipline, equipping, edification, and training of leaders to do the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-16)

Together, we reach around in fellowship. (Acts 2:42)

Together, we reach beyond in love to help fellow persons in need. (Matthew 25:31-46)

Together, we reach deeper into God’s resources through stewardship by putting God first to help advance

the Kingdom of God. (II Corinthians 8:9-15, Matthew 6:33)

Together, we reach out in witnessing and evangelism. (Matthew 28:18-20)

 

God: We believe there is one God. There are three persons of unity subsisting in one God head: The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Bible: We believe in the infallibility of the Word of God. The Holy Scriptures are without error. The Bible is divinely inspired through human authorship.

Man: We believe that man is a free will being whose will has been affected by the fall of Adam. Man has no power within himself to do good works, but his will must be influenced by the Holy Spirit to produce good works and develop good will.

Sin: We believe that sin came as a result of Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden. Hence, the sons of Adam are corrupt and have the inherent nature of sin. This nature is passed to all men.

Salvation: We believe that a person is saved by faith in Jesus Christ. He is not saved by good works or by his own merit. Rather, he is saved by faith in Christ and Christ alone. (Ephesians 2:8) However, we believe that every Christian should be careful to maintain good works.

The Church: The visible church is a congregation of faithful men and women who have expressed saving faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that Christians should regularly gather together for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the observance of baptism and Holy Communion.

 

 

The guide for our ministry is the Bible. We believe that God’s Word is infallible. The Bible not only gives directives for Christian living, it also gives the process of Christian ministry (II Corinthians 1:12). Our church totally submits to the authority of Scripture in its practice of ministry. All experiences and revelations must line up biblically with the Word of God.

The focus of our ministry is people. This means that we will be an organism with life. This means that everything we do is people related.

The place for our ministry is the world where people are. We seek to equip each member to minister to young people in the world where they are. This means that we will evangelize in homes and neighborhoods wherever people are.

Vision: The vision of Spirit Filled Ministries is to connect to God through worship, connect to the body through fellowship, and connect to the world through evangelism.

Mission: To make disciples in the greater Columbus, Phenix City area, and into the world by exalting Christ, equipping the believer, encouraging the Body and evangelizing the world.
