FOUNDATIONAL BELIEFS AND MISSION

WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD AND HAS BY HIS WILLING CRUCIFIXION, DEATH, AND RESURRECTION MADE A WAY FOR MANKIND TO FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO GOD ALMIGHTY AND THE "ONENESS" WITH THE GODHEAD OF FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT AS NOTED BY JESUS IN JOHN 17:20-24.      

 

WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER AND FUNCTIONS AS HEAD OF HIS CHURCH INTERCEDING ON OUR BEHALF AS HE ACTIVELY WORKS TO BRING THE FULL REALITY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD HERE ON EARTH. TO THIS END, WE BELIEVE HE HAS GIVEN US FULL AUTHORITY TO ACT ON HIS BEHALF TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS.              

WE BELIEVE HOLY SPIRIT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO GUIDE AND LEAD US INTO ALL TRUTH WITH ACTIVE MANIFESTATIONS OF HIS PRESENCE THROUGH POWERFUL GIFTS THAT WILL BUILD US UP IN CHRIST AND THUS ENABLE US TO BRING INTO FULLNESS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.         

                                       

WE ARE A SIMPLE CHURCH AND BELIEVE IN ALL THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT AND PLACE NO LIMITATIONS ON THE WAYS HE WILL MANIFEST HIMSELF AND THE GIFTING HE WILL POUR OUT AS HE MINISTERS TO US AND ENABLES US TO BE THE POWERHOUSE KNOWN AS "THE CHURCH".     

 

 WE ARE A WORD AND SPIRIT CHURCH WHICH MEANS WE BELIEVE IN THE DIVINE ORIGIN OF HOLY SCRIPTURE KNOWN AS THE BIBLE OR THE "WORD OF GOD". WE ALSO BELIEVE AND EXPECT THE FULL WORKING OF HOLY SPIRIT TO BRING THE SCRIPTURES ALIVE AND TO MANIFEST HIMSELF IN THE FULLNESS OF HIS PRESENCE AS HE GUIDES US INTO ALL TRUTH AND BRINGS ALIVE OUR EXPERIENCE WITH JESUS CHRIST AND GOD OUR FATHER.

WE BELIEVE IN 1) THE FULL GIFTING OF APOSTLE, PROPHET, EVANGELIST, TEACHER AND PASTOR GIVEN THROUGH CHRIST ACCORDING TO EPHESIANS 4:11; FOR 2) THE FULL EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORKS OF MINISTRY AND THE EDIFICATION OF THE BODY OF CHRIST NOTED IN EPHESIANS 4:12.                              

 

OUR MISSION AT RED DOOR IS SIMPLE: ENJOY GOD, HAVE FUN, LOVE HIS CREATION KNOWN AS PEOPLE, WALK IN THE FULLNESS OF HOLY SPIRIT, EXALT JESUS CHRIST, AND EQUIP THE BODY OF CHRIST FOR GREAT AND MIRACULOUS WORKS OF MINISTRY.

 

WE BELIEVE ALL OF THIS IS TO BRING MANKIND INTO THE FULL REALIZATION THAT 1) JESUS CHRIST WAS SENT TO RECONCILE MAN BACK TO GOD; 2) GOD LOVES HIS CREATION KNOWN AS MANKIND; AND 3) THERE IS A PEACE THAT COMES IN KNOWING HIM THAT CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD OTHER THAN TO EXPERIENCE HIM IN THE FULLNESS OF WHO HE IS.
