Sacred City Church exists to exalt all of God, with all we are, until all of creation worships Him.

Guiding Principles

Scripture – Believing God’s word
We value God’s word as revealed in the Bible. God’s word creates, transforms, and accomplishes God’s purpose in the world (Psalm 33:9; Jeremiah 23:28-29, Isaiah 55:10-11). This word is necessary for salvation (1 Timothy 3:15, Romans 10:17), life change (John 7:17), and for knowing oneself (Hebrews 4:12). We will seek to understand, believe, and teach all of God’s word.

Story – Telling God’s Story
We value the story God is telling. God’s story tells us where we came from, where we are and where we are going (Acts 17:26-31, Genesis 1, Revelation 22). In this story God is the protagonist and His mission is to save a people for himself (Acts 7, Ephesians 3:7-13). This story is the gospel, good news. We desire to join God on this mission, proclaiming the gospel to the world (Romans 1:16). This is a joy, because our life only finds meaning in this story (2 Corinthians 5:11-6:1; 1 Corinthians 9:19-27). Learn More

Symbols - Worshiping God’s way
We value symbols, rituals and rhythms, because they are important to God (Exodus 25-27, 35-40, Numbers 21:8). God has commanded his church to observe baptism (Matthew 28:19) and the Lord’s supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). These symbols showcase a God who delights in tangible demonstrations of the gospel. With these symbols at the center, we will worship God in creative, awe-inspiring and culturally accessible ways (Exodus 35:10, Hebrews 12:28, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23). Learn More

Lifestyle - Obeying God’s word
We value the authentic Christian life.Christians are meant to live like Jesus (1 John 2:6, Romans 12:1-2). This lifestyle will not only benefit the church, but will change communities for the better (Matthew 5:16). We desire to worship, work, and rest in a gospel informed way. Learn More

Citizens: Loving as neighbors
We value tangible involvement in the city. Christians should be good neighbors, coworkers and citizens, as a way of loving others (Mark 12:31). We desire to seek the peace and prosperity of Providence (Jeremiah 29:7). Learn More

Community - Gathering as family
We value close-knit community. The church is a family and should function like a family (John 1:12, Romans 12:10). Christians should prioritize one another in a way that demonstrates this familial love (Galatians 6:10, 1 Thessalonians 2:11). We desire to invite Providence to feast, laugh, and share with us.

Counter-Culture - Living as exiles
We value obeying God, even when others resist or don’t understand. Christians have been changed by God (2 Corinthians 5:17). The church should have different priorities, affections, and, lifestyles than the world (Romans 12:1-2, James 4:4). We desire to live like Jesus in front of the city of Providence. Learn More

Contenders - Proclaiming as prophets
We value justice. Christians should stand for what is true and just in the world (1 Timothy 3:15; 2 Timothy 4:2). There is a lot of evil in the world, and we want to see real change. With God’s Word in hand, we call people to be saved from this crooked generation (Acts 2:40, Ezekiel 3:17). We desire to seek justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God in Providence (Micah 6:8). Learn More
