Purpose

At Three Strands our purpose is simple: We exist to help people tie into God, Community and Purpose.



Tie Into God:

At Three Strands we want to present an accurate picture of who God is, what He has done and the kind of relationship He wants to have with you. There are a lot of false assumptions about God out there and a lot of misinformation. At Three Strands we want to help you get to know who God really is, the love He has for you and the kind of life you can have living in Him.



Tie into Community:

Our priority at 3S is relationships. We want you to be in a real relationship with God and to develop real relationships with other people.

At 3S, we want you to get tied into a group of people where you can develop meaningful, supportive relationships with people who are real. Whether you are a single adult, a child, a pre-teen, a teenager or a parent of one; whether you’ve gone to church your whole life or have never walked into one, Three Strands is a place for you…a place to belong…

Tie into Purpose:

And at Three Strands we want to help you figure out your mission. We believe that God has created us to do more than just eat, sleep, work, clip our finger nails and do the stuff society expects us to do. He has created each of us to do something meaningful with our lives. Finding that something is one of the greatest experiences in life and at 3S, we are dedicated to helping you find out what it is, and working together to make a real difference in our community and the world.



Core Values



God

We are committed to honoring God in all that we say and do and to presenting an accurate picture of who He is and what He has done. To accomplish that we put a ton of emphasis on:



  • Authentic Worship (We may not be flashy, but we’re real)

  • Biblical Teaching (We’re all about teaching God’s Word in relevant ways that will make sense to you.)

  • Prayer

  • Helping people understand and experience the transforming love of Christ.

People

Everybody matters to God. How do we know that? He sent Jesus to live, die and rise again so that we could know Him and be in a relationship with Him. Because of that we think everyone is valuable and we are sold out to:



  • Meeting people wherever they are and sharing the love of Christ with them in relevant ways.

  • Teaching people how to be in right relationships with other people at work, home, church and in the world.

  • Helping people connect with God’s desire for their lives.

  • Showing people just how cool it is to be tied into God, especially when life gets rough.

  • Standing by people even when life is hard or they make mistakes.

Mission

We are committed to helping people discover their gifts for ministry and helping them to find places to use those gifts in and around the church.

Our Beliefs

[[@Headword:God]]GOD {{field-on:topic}}We believe the one true God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As the Bible attests, everything and every person is God’s creation. (Deuteronomy 6:4-6; Matthew 28:19; John 5:26; John 14:9-17; I Corinthians 8:6; I Corinthians 12:3-6) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:Jesus]]JESUS{{field-on:topic}} We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s eternal Son, fully God and fully human, who lived, suffered, died and was raised from death to life as our advocate with the Father. Those who receive God’s gracious gift of salvation in Christ through repentance and faith find assurance of new life in Him. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; John 1:1-14; John 11:29-34; Romans 1:1-4; Colossians 1:15-22; Hebrews 1:1-14) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:Holy Spirit]]HOLY SPIRIT{{field-on:topic}} We believe in the transforming power of God the Holy Spirit who gives new life to all believers and conforms them to the likeness of Christ. The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to the people of God and empowers them to use those gifts to bring glory and honor to God. (I Samuel 16:13; Psalm 51:11; Joel 2:28-29; John 14:26, 16:7-15; Romans 8:9, 14; I Corinthians 12:3-6; Galatians 5:22, 23) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:Bible]]BIBLE{{field-on:topic}} We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Scripture is the true and authoritative rule of faith for all Christian belief and practice, and Jesus Christ is the interpretative principle. (Psalm 19:7-11, 119:11, 89, 105, 140; Acts 17:11; II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:20-21) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:salvation]]SALVATION{{field-on:topic}} We believe that all people are created with dignity and value in the image of God, to live in a vital relationship with God. Through our sin (rebellion against God), we break our intended relationship with God and we experience the destructive consequences of that broken relationship, spiritually and socially, in this life and beyond. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue us from these consequences and to restore our broken relationships with God and others, through Christ’s death on a cross, a perfect act of redemption for each of us. Salvation comes to people on the basis of God’s grace through their faith in Jesus alone. They receive the free gift of forgiveness and are spiritually reborn through repenting of their sin and belief in Jesus Christ. Good works and a holy life, although totally unable to save anyone, are the natural product of repentant, believing people. (Acts 3:19, 4:12; Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, 10:9-10; II Corinthians 5:17-20; Ephesians 2:8-10;) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:church]]CHURCH{{field-on:topic}} We believe that the Church is the gathered community of believers united in Jesus Christ throughout history and throughout the world who are led by the Holy Spirit to worship and serve God. (Matthew 4:10, 16:15-18; Acts 2:41-42, 47; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:25) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:ordinances]]ORDINANCES{{field-on:topic}} We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are exemplified and commanded by Jesus. Through these, we are identified with and reminded of the love of God, the presence of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:13-17, 26:26-30, 28:19-20; Romans 6:3-4; I Corinthians 11:23-29; Colossians 2:12) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:mission]]MISSION{{field-on:topic}} We believe that Christ-followers are called individually and collectively to serve, worship, pray, study the Bible and obey its commands. As agents of reconciliation, we are urged by the Spirit to go throughout the world sharing the mystery of Christ and encouraging all people to become devoted followers of Him. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8, 2:43-47, 13:1-3; Ephesians 4:11-16) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:service]]SERVICE{{field-on:topic}} We believe that God, who is love, has concern for the poor and oppressed. We, as Christians, are called to respond to Gods mercy by acts of love and grace toward all people, by promoting justice, working for peace and reaching out to everyone in need. (Isaiah 56:1; Micah 6:8; Matthew 5:3-12, 25:31-46; James 1:27) {{field-off:topic}}

[[@Headword:Kingdom of God]]KINGDOM OF GOD{{field-on:topic}} We believe the Kingdom of God is both here and now and will find ultimate completion when Jesus Christ returns to judge between those who are in Christ and those who have rejected Him. The Christian hope that sustains the believer is that Jesus Christ will usher in an everlasting reign of peace, justice and eternal joy. (Matthew 19:16, 25:41, 46; John 3:15, 16, 36, 10:27-30, 17:3; I Peter 1:3-9; I John 5:11, 13) {{field-off:topic}}
