The vision must not only survive, but thrive. Our Core Values help serve as a guide to fulfill the vision of Motor City Church.
Motor City Church considers certain truths as being basic to an understanding of a relationship with God. These beliefs are items we will not compromise on. They are the compass that points us in the right direction. The methods we use to reach people may change, but our message will remain constant.
ONLY ONE LIVING AND TRUE GOD
There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is totally and completely Holy. (Genesis 1:2-27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7)
INSPIRED WORD OF GOD
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)
We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25)
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
With the Baptism in the Holy Spirit comes the power for life and service. The gifts given by the Holy Spirit are for ministry to the body of Christ. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)
We believe every person is disobedient to God’s desires and plans in varying degrees. Any disobedience to God, regardless of how large or small, is characterized as sin. Sin literally separates each person from God, which is spiritual death. Spiritual death is not God’s desire. People can be united with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and through Him alone. Jesus died for sinners. Anyone who accepts and believes in Jesus’ death for his or her personal sins, and desires to have Him as King of their life, is forgiven for every sin. Upon this personal decision, God re-establishes a personal relationship with that person and promises eternal life. (Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6)
BAPTISM BY IMMERSION
We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)
We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively. (Acts 3:2-12; Acts 5:15-16; James 5:14-15; Isaiah 53:5)
SECOND COMING OF OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised. (Acts 1:10-11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7)
THOSE WHO DIE OUTSIDE OF CHRIST
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or Hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Jude 1:7)
SACREDNESS OF MARRIAGE
We believe in the sacredness of marriage and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31- 33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4)
