Values

Our strong set of core values and beliefs serve as pillars on which we build the church.

Our Core Values

Lordship - The Bible says in Revelation 19:16 that Jesus is the “King of kings and Lord of lords.” We believe wholehearted submission to His will is the foundation of all spiritual growth and the starting point of the Christian faith.

Discipleship - In Matthew 28:19-20, God has called every believer to make disciples. Hence, one of our primary focuses at Church of the King is to help people build their lives, both spiritually and relationally.

Spiritual Family - The Bible makes it clear that God builds His kingdom through family, both natural and spiritual. God has called all believers to be a part of a healthy spiritual family.

Leadership - The Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:2 that we are to teach and train others who will, in turn, train others. God has given each and every believer gifts and talents, which He calls us to impart into others.

Evangelism - John 3:16 clearly tells us that God loves people sacrificially. God's heart is to reach those that don't know Him and we are passionate about doing the same.

Compassion - Matthew 9:36 shows that Jesus saw people and was moved with compassion for them and we desire to have that same compassion and love for others. We seek to extend the grace and mercy of God to those both near and far.

What We Believe

The sole basis for our beliefs is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, without error, and the final authority on all matters on which it speaks. As the Bible teaches, there is only one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each possessing equal power and authority (2 Timothy 3:16).

God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God’s grace—not human effort—and must be received personally by repentance and faith. (Genesis 1:26, 27; 3:1-15)

Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us. He baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit and He will return to earth to consummate history. (2 Corinthians 5:21).

The Holy Spirit draws people to Christ and empowers the believer to live an overcoming and victorious Christian life. (Romans 15:13). We believe in and depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to meet our needs in every aspect of life. We believe in the present day gifts of the Holy Spirit that empower Christians to live the life God intends for them.
