Jesus Christ and His Gospel are the foundation of all we do at the Village Church. We are committed to ensuring that the person and work of Jesus are clearly and explicitly at the center of each person's life and ministry. Colossians 1:18 says that Jesus created everything so that “He might come to have first place in everything.”
Since the 66 books contained in the Old and New Testament are the written words of God, the Village Church seeks to uphold and obey every aspect of God’s word, both individually and corporately. (2 Tim. 3:14-17)
Every Village Church ministry's goal is focused on moving each person further toward completion, or full maturity, in Christ. This is at the very heart of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20. In this passage, Jesus commissions His disciples to make disciples of all the nations. Part of being a disciple is a joyful and fervent practice of the spiritual disciplines.
Every member and ministry of our church will seek to be Spirit-led as the Spirit of God is the source of all genuine heart change and movement towards completion in Christ. Without Him all of our efforts are merely temporal. (Colossians 1:29)
Jesus Christ instituted the local church as the extension of Himself. Jesus has appointed Elders and Deacons to humbly lead His Church, and Jesus has equipped each believer with a spiritual gift to humbly serve. It is in the context of this community of submission to leadership and submission to one another that completion/maturity in Christ occurs. (Acts 2:42)
