What We Believe

1. In the Infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible

2. In the trinity of God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
13 Then Jesus *arrived from Galilee at the Jordan coming to John, to be baptized by him.14
But John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?” 15 But Jesus answering said to him, “Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he *permitted Him.16 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him,17and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” Matthew 3:13-17

3. In the Genesis account of creation
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth… Genesis 1

He might taste death for everyone. Hebrews 2:9

7. In the bodily resurrection and ascension_ of Jesus Christ
“1 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you
received, in which also you stand…” 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;7 then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; 8 and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also” I Corinthians 15:1, 3-8

8. That all have sinned and are in need of salvation
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23

9. That salvation is wholly of grace through faith in Jesus Christ, free to all who will accept it, and that all believers are preserved eternally

What Is Ownership

We believe every Christian should belong to a local church and take “ownership” of that church. This includes serving, giving, and participating in biblical community. At Ignite Church, we will provide the tools you will need to learn to love God and love others.

Members have rights, Owners have responsibilities. We offer monthly Ownership classes where you’ll learn the vision and values of Ignite Church. We will share the vision, beliefs, and strategy of Ignite Church to help you understand where God is leading us and how you can fit into that vision.

The Ownership Class is a requirement in order to join the community of Ignite Church and serve within the leadership. Check the calendar for upcoming classes.
