SCF is an inclusive community where people are invited, equipped, empowered to worship and follow Jesus.
Who We ARe
Who We Are
A church that's engaged in the everyday life, where real people encounter a perfect God. Authenticity is welcomed!
Invite. Equip. Empower.
The Lordship and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ
In all we are and do, our foundation and focus will always be the honor and lordship of Jesus Christ and all things will be for His glory. Furthermore, understanding that with God all things are possible, our mission and ministry shall be limited only in those ways God Himself determines. We shall allow our hearts, minds, and souls to be stretched by the hand of God as He shapes and fashions us as a Church according to His perfect will.
The Authority of Scripture
The authority of our ministry originates and concludes with the Word of God as we submit ourselves to its teaching, commit ourselves to do what it says, and yield our lives to become what Christ desires us to be.
The Importance of Reflecting God's Image
We are created in the image of God. We are ambassadors for Christ to this earth. We lift up the importance of reflecting the holiness and beauty of our maker, allowing others to see Him through us in a way that is both clear and appealing.
The Supremacy of Unconditional Love
The love of God has been freely demonstrated to us. It was from a heart of love that God sent Jesus Christ to this world. God's love never fails. We shall lift up unconditional love as the supreme spiritual gift and as the standard for excellence in our lives and ministry.
A Lifestyle of Discipleship and Servanthood
We shall stress the imperative nature of the continued relationship with Jesus Christ - the process of discipleship. We shall deny ourselves, take up our crosses and follow Him with the daily goal of growing in His grace and knowledge. This shall be facilitated with a humble servant's heart, willingness to wash the feet of the needy, and gratefulness for every opportunity to serve Christ and His people.
An Emphasis on Evangelism and Missions
We believe that Jesus Christ alone is the way to salvation. Our ministry calls for a strong emphasis on taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to this community and around the world.
The Strength of Prayer
Understanding prayer to be our direct point of access to God the Father through Jesus Christ, and observing in Jesus' life and ministry the importance of communicating to the Father through prayer, our lives and ministries shall be under-girded and bathed in prayer if we are to expect the blessing, power and presence of God's Holy Spirit to rest upon us.
An Atmosphere of Accountability
True Christian discipleship requires total commitment. We believe that biblical expectation calls for loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. We shall live and minister with integrity and responsibility as well as personal and corporate accountability.
An Investment in People and a Focus on the Family
Understanding man to be God's most significant creation and realizing Christ's mission was and is to eternally redeem the spirit of every human being, our investments shall foundationally be in people.
We recognize the family as God's ordered pattern for our lives. We realize the significance of the home in the Christian life and development. Therefore, we shall be committed to strengthening the spiritual lives of families as they seek to build their homes on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ.
A Spirit-Led Worship
Personal and corporate worship are vital to Christian growth. We shall strive for a worship experience that focuses on our relationship to Jesus Christ. This relationship is authenticated by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit and brings us into a fresh and holy encounter with God.
Freedom to Innovate and Change
We recognize the eternal and unchanging nature of God's Word and the ongoing need for ministry change and innovation in order to effectively facilitate the sharing of the Word and growth of God's kingdom.
A Streamlined Ministry Approach
Desiring effectiveness and maximum potential in every area of ministry, we shall operate with as much simplicity of organization and structure as possible. We believe in the importance of being doers of the Word.
