GET TO KNOW
Rather than being a place where people far from God are met with shame, guilt, and condemnation, Jesus leads us to be a family that extends His grace,
mercy, and forgiveness to everyone.
No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have,
we want you to be a part of our family.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
A.W. Tozer once said...
"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us."
At The Sanctuary, we don't just desire to make God known in our worship, but we want Him to be exalted in every area of our lives. The Sanctuary upholds biblical authority, meaning that all of our beliefs, our fervent worship, our lifestyle, and who we are is rooted in the Bible and based on Biblical Principles. Based on Scripture we wholeheartedly embrace the following beliefs:
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9;1 Timothy 3:16)
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4)
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)
As Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life and the unrighteous eternal death. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15)
