Weatherly is a church community committed to being instruments of God to connect the city to Christ as His inheritance. This is being accomplished as God continues to put together a body of diverse believers committed to Him and to His kingdom.
Our mission at Weatherly can be expressed in three areas:
Connecting to God
The first priority of believers is to commit themselves fully to God. The Scripture tells us that we are to love God with all of our heart, mind, and strength. It also tells us that we determine to no longer live for ourselves, but for the purpose of Christ who died for us and was raised to life.
Connecting to each other
As God’s children we are called into relationship with one another. Jesus tells us in Matthew 22 to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love is active, not passive; therefore, we strive to express our love to one another through service and encouragement.
Connecting to the world around us
God loves the people of this world. As His ambassadors, we are called to show the love of God to this world. If we do not reach into a lost world, we will fail as God’s Church. The last words our Savior gave to us, His disciples, were that we were to “GO.” (Matt 28:16ff, Acts 1:8)
Our Fundamental Beliefs are:
…the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God ( 2 Timothy 3:15-16).
…there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:29)
…In the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, His vicarious, atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension. (Isaiah 7:14; Romans 8:34; Acts 1:10-11)
…in salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ alone (1 John 5:10; Romans 10:9, 10, 13; Hebrews 9:14; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
…In water baptism by immersion (Matthew 28:19).
…the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body (Isaiah 53:3-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:13-15).
…in the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; Acts 19:6).
…in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit who enables a believer to live a holy life (1 Peter 1:15-16; 2 Peter 1:3-4).
…in the second coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 24:15; Acts 1:11; John 14:3)
