Who We Are:
A Spirit-filled, Spirit-led, apostolic, and prophetic God centered worshipping church.
Eighth Day Mission Statement:
To equip believers to become whole, powerful, and purposed disciples of Jesus Christ through sound biblical principles and applications.
Meaning of the Eighth:
Eight - sh'moneh in Hebrew, from the root shah'meyn "to make fat" or "to cover with fat" which means to super-abound.
The first of a new series: there are seven days in a week; the 8th day is the beginning of a new series of days.
It is the number of salvation, resurrection, and new birth/regeneration.
"Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (Message Translation)
"Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. [Amen (so let it be). (Amplified Translation)
What We Believe:
The Scriptures - We believe the Bible is divinely inspired by God, and is God's revelation of Himself to man. We believe that in it are the principles by which we are to live and the measure for our faith and doctrine.
The Trinity - We believe in one true God who exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We also believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was sent to this earth to redeem humanity from sin and to reconcile mankind back to an original state and authority. He was crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended to heaven, and is coming again.
Salvation - We believe that salvation involves the redemption and transformation of the total man, and is available freely to all who believe in Jesus Christ. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
Baptism - We believe that water baptism is a symbol of the believer’s death to the power and bondage of sin and subsequent resurrection to newness of life in Jesus Christ.
Communion - We believe that in the taking of Communion, we remember the incomparable love of God that was extended towards us in Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.
The Kingdom - We believe in the sovereign rule, reign, and authority of God in the life of believers. We believe that the Kingdom of God is within us and is manifested on earth as we faithfully obey Christ and His teachings.
