“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind”
Romans 12:2a ESV
WHY WE EXIST
We Transform Lives
We believe that lives are transformed through connection to God, each other, and the world. We boldly stand by our values to be Reliant, Authentic, Courageous, and Generous in our everyday lives. We believe that God calls us to care for others. We believe when we embrace Jesus’s love in our hearts, others can’t help but notice the change in us. Our church’s foundation serves as a catalyst for God’s transformative love by providing ways to connect, pray, laugh, and grow with others.
We won’t shy away from scripture. We believe that the Bible is God’s living word, and it guides us in everything we do. Our sermons continually point back to scripture as the basis of our faith.
God’s love compels us to share with others the transformation we’ve experienced at the hands and work of God. We want you to experience His incredible grace and power in your life, too!
Prayer & Community
Life wasn’t meant to be lived alone. Community is a vital part of our faith walks, and we believe in the importance of gathering to pray, encourage, hold accountable, and uplift each other as we navigate life.
What We Believe
God the Father is creator of the universe and maker of everything in Heaven and on Earth.
Jesus Christ is God’s perfect Son, who through His birth from the Virgin Mary lived a sinless life on earth 2,000 years ago. He voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross for us. His death gained salvation for all who receive it as a gift by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only Mediator between God and us. He will return to Earth to conclude all things and reign forever.
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ, creates faith in our hearts and equips believers for personal growth and service to God.
This understanding of the sacraments is not just an idea but is reflected in nearly every aspect of our life as a community church. For example, you’ll see it embedded into the King of Kings community in the following ways:
- A regular, monthly celebration of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
- A regular and proud call to baptism for all ages
- Regular teaching on God’s grace active within the sacraments
- Living the reality that God’s presence in us makes us a sacrament to our families and communities.
We believe that God is passionately in love with us and pursues us in ways that make his love real to us. Sacrament. He wants to communicate all that He has done through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in our behalf.
In summary: Jesus for us. Jesus in us. Jesus through us.
We are part of the God’s sacred action, part of His sacramental life. Jesus has been given FOR US, that He might live IN US, and work THROUGH US to bring His presence to the world.
Baptism is the powerful connection of water with God’s Word that blesses us with God’s grace and forgiveness. When we are baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit we receive a new identity, becoming children of God. Being baptized with water indicates that we should, by daily repentance, drown the old sinful nature within us so that we can rise up and walk in the newness of life. (Key passages: Matthew 28:19; Titus 3:5-8; Romans 6:4) Learn more about baptism by watching our our video series on Baptism. You can also find more about our theology in this document.
On the night before Jesus died on the cross, He shared the last supper with His disciples. This experience that happened many years ago, leads us to celebrate Holy Communion. Jesus invited us to share this gift until He returns, so that we may have forgiveness of sins, strengthening of faith,
and the power to live God-pleasing lives.
God’s Word tells us that when we receive Communion, we are not merely receiving bread and wine, but the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
Baptized adult Christians are invited to share this great gift of God. Communion is received on first and third Sundays of the month. We ask that children experience our First Communion Classes in 5th & 6th grades before taking communion.
If you have questions about Communion, we encourage you to talk with one of our pastors after Worship. You can also learn more about our theology and beliefs regarding Holy Communion in this document.
We are a church that affirms and aligns with the historic statements of faith. Those statements of belief are found in three historic creeds of the ancient church. We believe that all who are baptized are baptized into the faith and affirm the faith as expressed in the Apostles Creed. We align our unity of faith in the expression of the Nicene Creed as together we partake in the Lord’s Supper. We affirm the power and the work of the Trinity, as expressed in the Athanasian Creed. The power of the creeds is the unification of faith with the church on earth prior to us, and the church on earth beyond us.
