Mature & Multiply
Integrity Church exists to mature and multiply believers to leave a gospel legacy.
God alone is worthy of all our affection and worship. For the believer, all of life is worship. Truly, every thought, word and deed ought to show love for the one true God. The believers life of worship is nurtured in the context of the weekly corporate gathering of believers. As a church we gather to worship, fellowship and hear God’s Word proclaimed. It is our conviction to mainly preach through books of the Bible and make Jesus central in all we say and do. We believe that responding corporately to the gospel causes us to mature and conform to the image of Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:31; Col. 3:1-17; Eph. 2:22; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; Romans 12:1-2)
We worship a triune God who has eternally existed as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. In identifying God as a trinity, we recognize that God is communal. We are made in God’s image and are therefore designed for a relationship with God and one another. We are not intended to live isolated lives. Therefore, as a church we scatter throughout the city for Gospel-Centered Community. This is primarily expressed in our Life Groups which meet throughout the week to fellowship with one another, discuss the sermons, pray together and serve our city. Acts 2:42-47, Hebrews 3:12-13, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
Jesus Christ is the ultimate example of humble service to others. In John 13:1-20, we read about Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. This was not the typical rabbinical task but was reserved to the lowest of servants. Christ ultimately serves us through his death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of our sins. Missional Living is a lifestyle that flows out of a heart captivated by the truth of the Gospel. God has shown us love and grace and we reflect the gospel through service to one another. Missional living is pursued in various ways based on how God has gifted us as individuals. Whether it’s greeting on the hospitality team, serving Integrity Kids, discipling others or opening their homes to their neighbors, believers have countless ways to live missionally.
In one of the most famous passages on discipleship, Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus issues the Great Commission for the church. Christ commands us to go into all the world and to multiply ourselves through showing love for others by teaching them his commands. As a church, we fulfill the Great Commission through multiplying our efforts by planting solid biblical churches who proclaim the gospel. We are called to multiply through planting churches to the glory of God. (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 5:11-12)
