Thought behind the Passion
Our Ministry Philosophy …
(1) God’s plan for His people is the local church; period. (2) Christ’s entire ministry was based on
relationally connecting with diverse people regardless of social economic background. (3) Christ and all of
the early church leaders consistently and strategically placed themselves in epicenters of broken and
hurting people. (4) America runs on Consumerism, not donuts regardless of what popular restaurant chains
claim. Based on our understanding or God’s word and our culture, we place our ministry in retail spaces,
connect with everyone, and provide a platform for local pastors, youth pastors, and ministry leaders to
connect with people. These ministry leaders are then able to relationally invite people to enter into
fellowship with their local body of believers.

Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible (the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments) is fully and
divinely inspired by God and is without errors in the original writing. The Bible is the
supreme and final authority in faith and conduct.
(2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in God as the Creator of all things perfect in love and righteousness, eternally
existing as the Trinity in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4, Galatians 1:1, Ephesians 4:6, Romans 9:5, Colossians 2:9,
John 1:1, Acts 5:3-4)
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ being fully God and fully man, His
virgin birth, sinless life, perfect obedience to the Father, miracles, atoning death through
His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the
(Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, I Timothy 3:16, John 1:14, Philippians 2:6)
Man / Sin
We believe that man was created by God in the image of God for a relationship with God. Through our disobedience toward God, man was alienated from God. Therefore, we,
as sinful people, are incapable of a right relationship with God apart from receiving his
divine grace bringing reconciliation to this relationship. This reconciliation was made
possible through the death of Christ on our behalf and His resurrection from the dead.
(Acts 16:31, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8-9)
Heaven / Hell
We believe in a literal heaven and hell. The eternal status of those who follow and do not follow Christ is determined by Christ, based on their relationship with Him.
(John 6:47, John 10:10, Revelations 22:5)
Second Coming of Christ
We believe Jesus Christ will come again to the earth in power and glory – both personally
and visibly – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
(I Thessalonians 4:13-5:4, Matthew 24:29-31)
We believe that salvation is received by grace through faith in Christ Jesus. As we
confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord and
God raised him from the dead, the Holy Spirit, who is fully God, renews man’s
heart bringing man into a place of forgivness and justification through
the merit of Christ our Savior being adopted into God’s eternal family as
Earthly Purpose of Man / Missions
We believe man’s earthly purpose is to worship God and tell others about
Him. Every Christian is called to engage in the work of Kingdom building
as God’s hands and feet by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and making
