Our vision is to be a large family of spirit filled believers in Jesus Christ who are passionate about loving God and others. To be a multi-ethnic and multi-generational congregation of individuals and families that are encountering the presence of God, growing spiritually, and living as over comers in every aspect of life. To be a thriving apostolic center that is equipping and sending believers to fulfill their destinies and the Great Commission.
To share the good news of Jesus in order to advance God’s Kingdom in society, both locally and globally.
We want to live up to our name, The Dwelling Place, so to be a place and people where God’s Presence dwells is of primary importance to us. This means that we are not driven by purpose or programs, but rather by His Presence.
Every person has a God given destiny. The Fivefold ministry gifts were given by Jesus to equip and prepare God’s people to realize their purpose and fulfill their destiny. We honor and value the present day function and ministry of apostles, prophets, pastors and teachers to equip believers. Ephesians 4:11
It is impossible to please God without faith. We endeavor to live by faith in God’s Word as it pertains to every area of our life (i.e. spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, vocationally and financially).
The first institution established in the Bible is the institution of the family, therefore, we value strong marriages and healthy relationships within the home. We believe the Bible defines marriage between one man and one woman, and are committed to the strength of the Biblical model of family as a foundation for our church and society.
God loves a cheerful giver so we believe in the joyful, sacrificial giving of time, talents, resources, and finances as an expression of trust and worship unto God and as a means to expand His Kingdom.
A primary component of Jesus’ ministry was healing. He also included healing the sick in the Great Commission, therefore we are intentional about praying for and seeing the sick and oppressed healed.
The Bible teaches us to esteem others more highly than ourselves. Every person is created in the image of God and therefore important to Him. When we honor others we communicate that they are valuable to God and to us.
God is love. Loving Him and others are the two greatest commandments, therefore love can not be ignored. Our greatest purpose in life is to learn how to love.
Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the gospel; therefore, we participate in and support local and global missions.
Because God’s house is a house of prayer for all nations, we are committed to pray and fast for His Kingdom to come and His Will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Jesus said whoever wants to be great must be a servant. Jesus did not come to be served but to serve. We value the importance of servant leadership that Jesus modeled.
Unity is not conforming to the doctrines, ideas, opinions, etc. of others, but a commitment to walk in covenant relationship with one another, despite our differences. Jesus said that unity would show the world that God sent Him and that God loved them. We believe God is uniting the Body of Christ to reap a worldwide harvest into His Kingdom.
