Vision: What is the purpose of our children’s ministry?
Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in partnership with parents, we will faithfully teach the gospel and demonstrate the love of Christ to all children so that they will become disciples of Christ who trust, serve, worship, and obey Him now and into eternity to the glory of God the Father.
As a creedal church, we believe that doctrine matters. Here is a summary of what we as a church believe:
In our overall goal, we are not unique at all. Very simply, we want to glorify Christ by living out all that Christ calls us to do and to be in every aspect of life. This is an aim that is shared by many churches in many places. We want to flesh out what this means specifically for the city of Pittsburgh, in a way that makes sense to the people of the area described above.
We are a Gospel-Driven Church. We are built on the atoning death and resurrection of Christ as described by the Bible.
We believe that everything that we know and do is built upon the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The sin and rebellion of the human race brings separation from God. The Gospel tells us that the penalty of sin was paid by Jesus Christ, so that we could be reconciled to God. By trusting in Jesus we are “united” with him. Our sin is paid for by His death; and His perfectly obedient life is credited to us. This is the message of good news – the Gospel. In proclaiming this “good news” we join with the historic witness of Christians throughout the world who have put their trust in Jesus Christ.
