The Farmers Branch Coordinator is responsible for endorsing and supporting the following beliefs:


  • Bible - The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and therefore the final authority in our under-standing of God and life. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21)


  • God - There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Romans 8, Ephesians 1:13-14)


  • Humanity - God created human beings in His image for the purpose of living in an intimate relationship with Him.  Through our sin, though, we are separated from an intimate relationship with God.  (Acts 17:24-28, Isaiah 59:1-2)


  • Salvation - God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to offer His righteous life as payment for our sin. Salvation is a free gift of God received through faith and expressed through confession, repentance, and baptism.
    (1 Corinthians 15:1-8, Romans 1:16-17; 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9, John 3:16, Acts 2:38)


  • Transformation - God not only wants us to save us, He wants to transform us into the image of His Son.  Transformation is initiated by salvation, sustained by God’s grace, and gathers momentum as our will is brought in ever-increasing alignment with God’s will. (Philippians 2:12, Romans 12:1-2)


  • Church - The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to reach those separated from God and mature those who have been restored to God through Christ. (Ephesians 4:1-16)


  • Eternity - Christ will one day return, final judgment will be rendered, the image of God will be completely restored within us, and we will reign with Christ forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1 John 3:2)
