"I am The Vine, you are the branches"

We Will Magnify The Gospel. Glorify God. Exemplify Christ. Multiply Disciples.

It is important for us that the name of our church is directly tied to a specific text of Scripture. The goal is that every time a member of our church talks about The Branch they can share John 15:5. Our prayer is as people in our church live like missionaries in our community, those who hear of the church will associate our church with the Word of God.

We wanted the name of the church to communicate a complete dependency upon the Lord. John 15:5 is clear that unless the branches remain attached to the vine they will bear fruit and flourish. However, if the branches do not abide then they will certainly wither. We want the ministry of our church to be rooted in the completed work of Jesus Christ and anything good we accomplish is a byproduct of being attached to Christ’s grace, mercy, and power.

The name of our church should point people to Jesus Christ. Five times in the Old Testament the Messiah is referred to as the Branch. The references can be found in the following passages: Jeremiah 23:5-6;33:15-17; Zechariah 3:8-9; 6:12-13; Isaiah 4:2. Thus, the name of our church is a proclamation that we want to put Jesus on display for all to see. 

Our Doctrine

What We Believe

God

a.) We believe there is only one true and living God and He exist eternally in three persons- the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

b.) We believe Jesus is both fully God and fully human. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the Cross as a substitute for mankind, was raised from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day return. (John 10:11; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

c.) We believe God the Holy Spirit is a person who restrains evil in the world and convicts men of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He dwells in all who believe in Jesus. From the moment of belief in the Son, the Spirit baptizes believers into the body, seals them for salvation, regenerates them to new life, bestows spiritual gifts on each one, and is fully present to continually fill (control and guide) His own (John 16:7-11; John 3:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 13; John 14:16-17; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19).

The Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s written revelation of Himself to mankind divinely given through human authors who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is entirely true, totally sufficient, and completely authoritative for matters of life and faith. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

Man

a.) We believe Human Beings are created by God to bear His image. They are the crowning work of His creation worthy of love, dignity, and respect regardless of matters like age, race, gender, or class. (Genesis 1:27)

b.) We believe God created mankind in His image, forming each person in the womb from conception (Psalm 139:13-16; Isaiah 44:2; 49:5; Jeremiah 1:4-5) until the point of death when they breathe their last (Genesis 25:8; Luke 23:46); and assigning gender to His people, male (man) and female (woman), as He created them sexually and biologically different, but with equal personal dignity and value (Genesis 1:26-28).

c.) Because of the Fall (Genesis 3), the image of God in people is distorted but not lost. All people have disobeyed God willfully through sin; thus inheriting both physical and spiritual death and the need for redemption. All human beings are born with a sin nature and into an environment inclined toward sin. Only by the grace of God through Jesus Christ can they experience salvation.

Salvation

a.) We believe salvation is a sovereign gift of God and is received by man through personal faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin. We believe man is justified by grace through faith apart from works (Acts 13:38-39; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 1:4-5; 2:8-10).

b.) We believe that Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation and that no one is saved apart from a conscious and personal decision to trust in Christ as his or her one and only Savior (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10).

c.) We believe all true believers who are in Christ Jesus, once saved, are kept secure in Christ forever (Romans 8:1; 29-30; 38-39; John 10:27-30).

The Church

a.) We believe the Church, the Body and Bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism, made up of all born-again persons of this present age.

b.) We believe the local church is an assembly of professed believers in Jesus Christ who are voluntarily joined together in one locality for the purposes of worship, study of the Word of God, observance of the ordinances, Christian fellowship, equipping for and practice of Kingdom service, specifically stewarding our lives for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission (Acts 2:42-47; 1 Corinthians 1:1-2; Ephesians 4:11-13; Matthew 16:18; 28:19-20).

Baptism

Baptism is by immersion and is an outward expression of a heart that has been transformed by the power of the gospel. Baptism does not bring forgiveness of sins, but rather declares publicly that salvation is found in the substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 3:13-17; Luke 3:21-22; Romans 6:3-5;

The Lord's Supper

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church partake of the bread and the fruit of the vine in order to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:26-30; 28:19-20; 14:22-28;22:19-20; I Corinthians 10:16, 21; 11:23-29; Colossians 2:12)
