The Sanctuary is a non-denominational church, although our Pastors were ordained in Southern Baptist Churches and educated at Baptist schools and seminaries. We remain non-denominational to accommodate the wide variety of denominational backgrounds, or lack of, represented in our culture and congregation. We believe the Bible is the Word of God from cover to cover as our sole authority for teaching, equipping, and training. Our theological position would be considered as affirming of many of the Scriptural doctrines represented by a reformed theological position.
Everything is for the glory of God. Everything!
The Bible is true and should be taught from its historical context.
God is more important than anyone or anything. He is the consumer we aim to please.
Jesus is salvation. He is God. He is the gospel.
Jesus’ death on the cross and His irrefutable resurrection are the most significant acts of God in restoring all things.
The gospel is a word and it is work to share in every nation.
We are to be “Jesus” to people. We should act like Him in the power of His Spirit.
The church is God’s agent of change and restoration of all things through the gospel of Christ.
We, the church, are to help people. We all have issues. Right? Everyone.
We sense that in our world the oppressed have been overlooked. We believe the church is the answer.
We believe religion doesn’t help people… but loving God and loving people does!
People matter more than programs.
Authenticity is treasured. No pretense. No pretending. (redundancy intended)
Church is people not a building.
Christianity is a movement not an institution.
Worship is how you live not just a momentary act on Sunday.
We believe you should join a church because of what they believe and what they are doing to help people.
We believe that by living an exciting life of faith we can have a thrilling journey with God.
We believe God is at work here at the Sanctuary.
