Real Life Ministries does not exist simply to have great weekend services. Everything we do is driven by the vision of our church which is to reach the world for Jesus one person at a time according to Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:18-20.
In order to accomplish the goal of reaching the world, we create biblical disciples in relational environments as the early church modeled in Acts 2:42-47 and walk people through a process of discipleship which we call “S-C-M-D”.
>> We will SHARE Christ with a dying world, making disciples of all nations – 1 Peter 2:9
>> We will CONNECT disciples into a leader directed small group – 2 Timothy 2:2
>> In small groups we will train disciples to MINISTER in the church, and in the world – Ephesians 4:11-12
>> We will release those who have been developed to DISCIPLE others – Matthew 28:19
REAL LIFE MINISTRIES has grown because God has added to our numbers. (Acts 2:47) We have tried to glorify Christ in everything we do. Our church has sought to be unified in the “major” things and have allowed for differing opinions in the “minor” things. Jesus said that the world would know that we are His because we love one another and because we are one. John 13:35;John 17:21-22
This church has people with many different backgrounds, but we are a team. We are more interested in glorifying God than arguing over non-salvation issues. “How can we agree rather than disagree?” is a very important question we seek to answer. “How can we apply the truth of scripture in a way that shows love for our Father and love for one another so that Jesus is glorified in all we do?”
Therefore, we have established our core beliefs as our non-negotiable DOCTRINAL STATEMENT.
