When Compassion began in a basement with only a few people back in 2010, we had a mission and a vision to reach people in our community and around the world. Whether it has been providing school supplies, clothes, food, & Christmas presents for those in need, bringing gifts to our local hospital, schools, & EMS workers, or helping build a school in Africa, Compassion has always been focused on reaching people and sharing the hope of Jesus beyond our four walls.
We've partnered with local faith-based organizations such as Stepping Out Inc., Daily Bread, KARM, MATS Shelter, and sowing into church plants to expand this mission. Our values are what we live by according to God's Word and how we will walk closer to Christ.
We believe that the Bible is verbally inspired of the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16 and 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe in Triune Godhead: one God existing as three separate and distinct persons. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are eternally self-existent and function as one entity. (Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19; John 14:16-17; 26;15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14)
We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. We believe that He was conceived in the virgin named Mary by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected from the dead. He has ascended to heaven and now at the right hand of God as our Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-35; Matthew 1:18-25)
We believe that all of us have sinned and come short of God’s glory and therefore, repentance is not only commanded by God but necessary for the forgiveness of our sin. (Mark 1:15, Luke 13:3)
We believe that our justification, regeneration and New Birth are made possible through our faith in Jesus’ blood. (Romans 5:1; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:23)
We believe that Sanctification is scriptural and that it is brought about through faith in Christ’s blood,through the washing of God’s Word and through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Holiness results through a daily process of commitment. (Romans 5:2; 1 Corinthians 1:30)
The Holy Spirit:
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:44; 10:44-46)
We believe in Spiritual gifts and that they should be operative In the church. (1 Corinthians 12:1, 7, 10, 28, 31; 14:1)
We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Bible. That God created marriage, and that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Ephesians 5:22-33; 1 Corinthians 7:10-16).
We believe in water baptism by immersion as a testimony of our Conversion. We should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as Jesus said. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 1:9)
We believe that divine healing is provided for us in the atonement. (Matthew 8:17; James 5:14-16)
We believe in The Lord’s Supper as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
Return of Jesus:
We believe in the pre-millennial second coming of Christ. Jesus will first resurrect the righteous dead and catch the saints away and then He will reign on the earth for a thousand years. (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1. Thessalonians 4:15-17; Jude 14,15; Revelation 5:10)
We believe that eternal life in heaven awaits the Saints and that eternal punishment awaits the wicked who have rejected Jesus Christ. (Matthews 25:46; Luke 18:30)
