BELIEFS

These are essential truths. These things don't change at The Foundry. This is what we believe, and it's at the core of our mission and values.

about god

We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of all things.

Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14

about Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, who died for our sins and was resurrected from the dead. We believe in Jesus' virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His suffering and literal death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His coming return to earth, and He will reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

Isaiah 53; John 3:16; I Corinthians 15:1-8; I Thessalonians 4:13-18

about the holy spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is an active and operative part of the triune God, who convicts the world in regard to sin, righteousness, and judgment, and who indwells in every Christian, gifting them for service in the church and enabling them to live a godly life.

 

John 14:16-20, 26-27; 16:7-16; Romans 12:4-8; I Corinthians 12:1- 11, Acts 2:38; Ephesians 1:13-14

about humankind

We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.

 

Romans 3:21-24, 6:23; Acts 4:12

about salvation

We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith, in baptism, for good works.

 

Ephesians 2:8-10, Colossians 2:12

We believe that the Biblical pattern to receive God's free gift of salvation is to hear the gospel.  Believe in Jesus as God's Son and Savior of the world, repent of personal sin, confess Christ publicly, be baptized, and remain faithful to the end.

 

Romans 10:9, Acts 2:36-38, Mark 16:16, Mark 13:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Colossians 2:6, John 3:16

 

We believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person. When Jesus returns He will pronounce the eternal fate of each individual, both living and dead, either to eternal life in heaven or eternal separation from God in hell.

 

John 5:28-29; 2 Corinthians 4:14, Matthew 10:28, 1 Corinthians 15:51-53

about the church

We believe that the Church is the body and bride of Jesus on earth, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere.

 

Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47

about the bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all matters of faith and life.

 

2 Timothy 3:14-16

Our Theology
OUR MISSION

MISSION

Every Christian church has been given a clear mission by God: Make Disciples. In Matthew 28, Jesus said, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."

 

Our unique “churchprint” is to make disciples by

Guiding People to Forge a Life-Long Reliance on God.

 

We know that often our time in this part of the country so we give generously of our time, talent, and finances to cultivate authentic connections and equip people for whatever is next in their lives. is short.

 

We have a passion for serving our community and connecting people with the heart of Jesus.

Our values

VALUES

The are the things that define our culture at The Foundry. When you walk into our church there are things that you can feel because of who we are and what we are. 

Anchoring Truth-

2 Timothy 3:16

We believe in being led by the Spirit and taught by the Word, that the Bible is useful, trustworthy, and has authority.  If we will anchor our lives to it, if we submit to it, we will find a better way to live.

 

We pray knowing it depends on God but we work (even at learning His word) like it depends on us.

Equipping growth-

Luke 2:52

It is not a matter of if we are called, but when.  No matter age or knowledge, we endeavor to help others to take one step in the will of God each day.  We believe in taking every opportunity to learn about God so that we are ready to move for His Kingdom.

 

nurturing relationships-

1 John 4:19

We believe that every member of The Foundry should be close to God and close to someone far from God. Because of what Jesus has done for us, the most loving and powerful thing we can do for others is to go to them and invite them to come and see who Jesus is and what He has done for us. 

welcoming authenticity-

Philippians 2:13

We believe that where trust exists, God moves. Using our spiritual gifts, talents, abilities, resources, passions and creativity, we are to be as hospitable as we can and eliminate any and all obstacles to God

 

We will live as a church of people worthy of trust so that people have the best opportunity to encounter Jesus so that He can do what only He can do.

 

transforming generosity-

James 2:14-17 

The Foundry cultivates a culture of “others first.” To do this, we believe in living sufficiently in order to give extravagantly.  Giving generously with our money and resources allows us to make the biggest impact possible in the world around us.

 

Jesus put it best: it’s far better to give than to receive.
