We are a community

We are a community, founded in 1991 in Medellín, Colombia; who Believe, Grow, Share And Tell the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We seek to help people to know God and have a personal relationship with Him, to be able to enjoy his salvation, live as He wants and be lights in this world.

Our

values

Faithfulness
(to the Word of God)

The Word of God given in the Old and New Testaments is the foundation of our church, in it we find God’s will and his purposes for the church and for the world. We are a community that remain faithful to the truth that the Lord has revealed in his Word, it is a source of life and direction for our faith. But above all, through the Word of God we relate to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We are sustained by fidelity to the Word of God, which calls us to announce the Good News of Jesus Christ. 

Dependence
(on God)

Faith is a call to walk hand in hand with God, to understand that we need to cling on to Him to face every reality of life. Only when we seek God and build a life of intimacy sustained in His truth, can we know him deeply and fulfill the purpose that He has entrusted us. We are a community that depends on God and his Word, recognizing his call to abide in Him (John 15:1-17).

To Love
(God and others)

As a community, we recognize the principle of love as the central axis of God's revelation. The call to love God and others challenges us as a community of faithful servants to reflect the love we have received from God, surrendering all that we are in worship and serving others for His glory. We love God by loving his Word and obeying his will. We love others by serving with dedication, but also by announcing the truth of God which is revealed in the Good News. 

Transparency
(in everything)

We seek to live a life of total adoration and dependence on God and His Word, showing transparency in each of the ecclesial, economic, administrative and social matters that correspond to us. The truth of the Word calls us to live godly in all our processes; For this reason, we have developed a structure that allows us to take care of the financial, human, spiritual resources, etc., that God has entrusted us in a transparent manner.

Hope
(in salvation and in the second coming of Christ)

The Word of God gives us the assurance that those who believe in Christ as their Lord and Savior can live confidently in this life and for eternity. We affirm that our only hope rests on Christ Jesus alone. He has given us salvation by his sacrifice on the cross and has assured us of eternal life by his resurrection from the dead. God's great promise in Christ is that there will come a time when everything will be restored to a created order and those who have placed their trust in Jesus will receive eternal life. We live in expectation of the glorious manifestation of Christ, when salvation will be consummated and we will live eternally with Him.

What do

we believe?

We are a Christian community, we believe in the Trinity and we affirm that:
  • There is one God, who is infinitely perfect and eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; John 16:12-15; 2 Corinthians 13:14; James 1:17).

  • Jesus Christ is true God and true man. We announce the Gospel of Jesus and live in expectation of his glorious manifestation, He will come again to establish his kingdom of justice and peace (John 1:1; John 1:14; John 14:1-7; Acts 1:9- 11; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-20; 1 John 1:1-4; 1 John 5:20).

  • The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to dwell in those of us who believe in Him, to guide us, teach us, empower us, and convict us of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; Acts 5 :1-11; Acts 13:1-3; 1 Timothy 4:1; Romans 8:12-14).

We are a church centered on the Gospel of Jesus and with an emphasis on missions, (Matthew 28:16-20), we believe that:
  • As a community of faith, we are called by the Lord and led by the Spirit to announce the message of salvation in the person of Jesus (Matthew 9:35-38; Luke 10:1-12; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2 :1-5). 

  • Those of us who have encountered Jesus as savior understand the value of announcing the truth of the Gospel so that others also know it and receive the hope of eternal life (John 4:39-42; Mark 5:18-20; Romans 1: 16-17).

The Old and New Testaments make up what we know as the Word of God or Scripture, which is inerrant as originally written. In Scripture we know God's will and character; besides that, in it we find the maximum revelation of God, Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Old and New Testaments were inspired by God and are the complete revelation of his will for the salvation of men. They constitute the only divine rule of Christian faith and practice (Psalm 119; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 1:19-21).

  • All Scripture points to the ultimate revelation of God in Jesus, in Him we find salvation and eternal life (Isaiah 53; John 1:1; John 1:14-18; John 5:39; Luke 24:27; Luke 24:44-47; 2 Timothy 1:8-13; Hebrews 1:1-4).

We are convinced that human beings were created in the image and likeness of God to live fully; however, we rebel against God's will and disfigure his image because of sin (Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 2:7-25; Genesis 3:1-20). We believe that:
  • Human beings fell by mistrusting the Word of God and decided to act against his will and thus came death, both physical and spiritual (Genesis 3:1-20; Romans 5:12-14).
  • All human beings are born with a sinful nature, are separated from God, and can only be saved by the work of the Lord Jesus Christ through faith (Romans 3:22-26; Romans 5:18-19).
God gives us salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus, only those who believe in Him can be saved from condemnation and receive eternal life (John 3:16-17). Based on the Bible, we affirm that:
  • Those of us who repent and believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior are born again through the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become children of God (Matthew 3:7-12; Matthew 4:17; John 1 :12-13; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:1-7).

  • The end of those who do not believe and reject the Son of God is eternal damnation, while for those who believe, it is joy and eternal life with God (John 3:18-20; John 3:36; Romans 5: 18-19; Romans 8:1).

  • There will be a bodily resurrection for all human beings. For those of us who believe in Jesus it will be a resurrection of eternal life and for those who do not believe in Him, a resurrection of eternal death and damnation (Daniel 12:2, Mark 8:34-38; John 5:28-29; Acts 24 :15; 1 Corinthians 15).

The church is made up of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus, who have been freed by his blood, born by the Holy Spirit, who live in love and dependence on the Lord (Acts 2:37-47).
  • As a church, we are the body of Christ and have been commissioned by Him to go into all the world witnessing and preaching the Gospel to all human beings (Matthew 16:16-18; Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 9: 31; Ephesians 2:19-22; Colossians 1:17-20).

  • The church is the family of faith. Those of us who have believed in Jesus grow in love and dependence on Him (John 13:34-35; John 15:1-17; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 John 4:7-21).

  • We are disciples who follow in the footsteps of our Lord and are built up by the work of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:41-47; Acts 11:19-26; 1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 4:1-16).

We know that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent, it will be personal and visible (Acts 1:14; Revelation 1:7).
  • This is our glorious hope and it is a vital truth that drives us to a life of dependence on the Lord and service. (Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Corinthians 1:4-9; 1 Thessalonians 4:9-5:11).

  • We end each Sunday celebration/meeting with the cry: “Come Lord Jesus” (Maranatha), because we long for his glorious manifestation and the restoration of all things (1 Corinthians 16:21-24; Philippians 3:20-21; Revelation 21 :1-4; Revelation 22:1-5; Revelation 22:20).
