About Element Christian Church
OUR MISSION: To Glorify God by teaching and living out the Scriptures, transforming community into Gospel Community, and planting churches.
Heritage: We believe the central truths of the historic orthodox Christian faith. We believe that Christianity today goes back, not only to the foundations of the apostles and prophets in New Testament Scripture (Ephesians 2:19-22), but also to Israel's rich history as the people of God seeking to know Him. Today this all comes to culmination in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Journey: We believe that knowing God is a journey and not a destination. We believe that as we grow closer to God through Christ, we will realize how deep the love of God is for all mankind. Because our faith is a journey, change is expected and rebirth is essential.
Community: All people bear the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and as such are worthwhile and to be treated with honor and respect. We believe we are to carry each other's burdens, worship Jesus with a common voice, confess and pray with one another, and suffer and celebrate together.
Service: We believe that Jesus was God in human flesh, and that the church is to be the main thrust of God's ongoing presence in the world. Jesus, though God, came as a servant (Philippians 2) and illustrated how we are to live and love others. As followers of Christ, we are to fight injustice, relieve suffering, and be a compelling force for good in the world, as we care about the things God cares about.
