WHAT WE BELIEVE

About God
God is the loving Creator of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God is eternal and completely good, knowing all things, having all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity, in three persons, yet one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God passionately desires a relationship with us and towards this end, continually invites us into a relationship of faith, friendship, learning and service. Genesis 1:1; John 14:6-9, 15-17 and John 16:7-15; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 4:9-10.
About Jesus Christ
God expressed himself in human form through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of us all, was buried, rose again from the dead and ascended to heaven. Colossians 1:13-23 and 2:8-14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Matthew 22:36-40 ; John 14:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-3; Acts 10:42-43; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
About The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit, sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ, teaches, comforts and empowers us, giving each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character and love among Christians. The empowering and infilling of the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, is available for every Christian. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service. Acts 1:8; 2:4; Romans 5:5 and Romans 8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 3:16, Ephesians 4:3-4, and Ephesians 5:18; John 14:26 and John 16:7-14.
About The Bible
We believe that God speaks to us in the Bible and that it is our privilege to seek to understand God’s message and apply it responsibly to our lives. The Bible is our standard in all we say and do. We believe that God’s unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in relevant and contemporary ways, free of religious jargon and understandable to the people of our community. Matthew 5:17-19; 2 Timothy 2:15 and 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:16-21 and 2 Peter 3:14-18; Psalms 19:7-11 and Psalms 119:9-16; Joshua 1:7-8; Acts 17:11.
About Salvation
All people are created with dignity and value in the image of God, to live in a vital relationship with God. However, through our sin (failing to live by God’s moral standards), 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. However, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue us from those consequences and to restore our broken relationships with God and others through Christ’s death on the 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 believing in Jesus Christ. Good works and a holy life, although totally unable to save anyone, are the natural product of repentant, believing people. I Peter 2:24, 3:18; Romans 3:9-28, Romans 6:23 and Romans 10:9-10; John 3:16 and John 5:24; Ephesians 2:1-10; Titus 3:3-8; James 2:14-26 While we believe in partnering with Christians from a variety of backgrounds and traditions to impact the world with the good news of Jesus Christ, Sagemeadow Fellowship is an interdenominational church that is affiliated with the Assemblies of God organization.

WHAT WE VALUE

Understanding Priorities
There is nothing more important than growing close to Jesus Christ and living for him. We are a local church body that believes we should be passionate about what Jesus is passionate about. Christ is passionate about people who have surrendered their lives to Him and to those who are still lost with no relationship with Him.
Having A Foundation
The Bible is inerrant and relevant at all times. We believe the Bible is God’s Word; his guidebook for us to live successfully and to know Him better. While many people today have dismissed the importance of the scripture, we hold God’s word as foundational for living.
Power Of Testimony
Everyone needs Jesus. His followers need to share him with others, and we believe Jesus Christ is the answer. Our personal testimonies of what Jesus has done in our lives and continues to do in our lives is as natural a response as a lifeguard who tosses a life preserver to a drowning person.
Everyone Is Meaningful
Everyone has God given talents that should be used to serve others. God is creative, and uniquely grants us resources and talents for serving him and other people.
Importance of Teamwork
We accomplish more together than alone. Life is more rewarding when done with others. We all go through times when we need each other for encouragement and friendship. Life is filled with ups and downs. That’s why we need trustworthy friends.
Jesus Demands Action
A Christ-filled life is more than a 1 hour per week lecture. We believe Jesus means what is written is His word. Jesus instructs us to act on his instructions, not just be listeners only.
Reducing Unproductive Noise
Since Jesus Christ made each of us on purpose, we should live with purpose. We believe that more can be accomplished and realized in our lives when we focus. When we remove the clutter from our lives, God’s dream for our lives can be realized.
