Transform an impoverished culture with the life changing message of Jesus Christ, by living God-first lives, building authentic relationships, & meeting the needs of the marginalized and the poor in practical non-religious ways.
The Priority of People
Redemption & Restoration
Honor & Generosity
The Word of God
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired, infallible authoritative word of God. It is the absolute standard and rule for our lives and all that we do as a local church. We also believe every believer should endeavor to have a daily personal time in the Scriptures. (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Worship of God
We believe worship is far more than just a time of singing in a service. Worship is a lifestyle in which we choose to honor God in everything we say and do. We value individual creativity and desire a place of expression and release for every unique gift. (Psalm 66:4; John 4:23-24)
The People of God
We desire for COTH to be a multi-cultural, multi-generational body of believers that value and embrace all people with the love, acceptance, and forgiveness that Jesus Christ has shown us. We believe every person is precious in the sight of God, our Father, and each individual has something of value to contribute to the Kingdom of God and to our local expression of the Body of Christ. (Hebrews 10:25)
We believe relationship releases ministry. Maintaining a right relationship with God and our fellow believers is vital to building a community of faith and accomplishing the purposes God has for our lives. Relationships are essential as they provide the accountability, affirmation, and assessment necessary for a church body to operate effectively.
As a Foursquare church we believe in Jesus Christ as:
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him..." Isaiah 53:5
The Baptizer with the Holy Spirit
"For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit...you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:5 and 8
"He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sickness..." Matthew 8:17
The Soon-Coming King
"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout...the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
