Our Community – Our Life
We believe that salvation comes by grace through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, not by anything we can do. As new creatures in Christ, we desire to follow Jesus’ example of walking peacefully in love, patience, and humility, being doers of the word, as well as hearers.
We regard the Bible as God’s Spirit-breathed truth and seek to apply its teachings in all aspects of life. We love to study the Bible and treasure the time that we spend with God in his Word. We prioritize personal reading and prayer as well as our time of corporate worship with our church family.
Accountability In Christ, believers have been granted liberty from the enslavement of sin,5 and this freedom makes us a deeply joyful people. As part of the body of Christ, we desire to surrender our own desires for the spiritual welfare of others,6 not allowing our liberty to become a stumbling block for our brothers or sisters.7 We foster an environment of accountability and offer guidance and encouragement when a brother or sister is faced with temptation.
Contentment, Stewardship, Modesty We strive to live all aspects of our lives in contentment, simplicity, and modesty, with thankful hearts, recognizing that our bodies and material possessions ultimately belong to God.9 As God’s image-bearers, we maintain and teach consistent biblical principles on matters of male and female sexuality, identity, and appearance, showing compassion without compromise.
UECA ministry is more then just a ministry we are truly a Family aspires to be a body of believers, bound together by our love for Jesus Christ and his Word, reflecting God’s love, grace, and truth. Brothers and sisters in Christ are truly considered family, which is evident in the way that we care for one another. We are committed to ensuring that each other’s material needs are met, in times of trial as well as in our daily walks of life. We mourn with each other in losses, celebrate together during times of rejoicing, and desire to be Jesus’ hands and feet for the hurting and struggling. When a group of faith base fellowship and strong family Christians becomes aware of a need within the church or community, the response will be timely, sincere, and robust.
Scripture has much to say about the importance of mentorship across generations, community, advocacy services and fellowship Christians prioritize and cherish our cross-generational friendships. The Bible teaches that the older generation should nurture younger Christians in the way of love, dignity and integrity. Also, older women should show the younger how to be kind and pure, dedicated to their families, husbands, and upkeep of the home. Older men are to guide the next generation to be devoted spiritual leaders– patient, gentle, and faithful to God and their families. While younger people certainly benefit from wisdom and instruction, we also recognize that respect, sharing, and learning between generations is mutual as we labor together in service of the Lord.
Media Consumption We are discerning in our use of media, entertainment, and technology, checking that our motivations line up with scriptural truths. We hold in low regard society’s changing fads and philosophies, instead cleaving to the timeless truths of Scripture. Our desire is to fill our thoughts and time with things that are true, honest, just, pure, and lovely. In using the internet broadcasting from audio to video, we are here to share with the world what God has for them, and it is a blessing that God gave us the wisdom to use the things that will touch lives by all means.
Our Faith Radio
We continue to build ways to sharing the world of God. In placing true faith through the method of Gospel Music, for we know that all music that honors God is a delight to our ears. Our homes are often filled with uplifting hymns, whether that be through singing, instruments, or recordings. All ages of the Kingdom of God, our youth building a solid Gospel media project using Christian Rap, Gospel Music and so much more that we frequently come together to sing praises to God. Whether around a piano, bonfire, or college campus, it is a joy to worship the Lord together!
The Great Commission
God desires all souls to find their salvation in Jesus, and the church has been commissioned as agents of this work. We look to this great commission as we share the good news of Jesus Christ, baptize in his name, strive to live out the fruits of the gospel, and raise up generations of godly children to carry on this legacy.
We deeply value hospitality, often opening up our hearts and homes to both new and familiar faces. Our appreciation for each other motivates life-long friendships across states and countries. Frequently, our fellowship will host guests from another congregation for the weekend, even if they have never met. As Jesus commonly shared meals with his disciples, we also frequently dine together. We find that this practice has a particular way of bringing people together. Most of our events involve refreshments in some way. On Sundays, we share a noon meal together between services.
