Statement of Faith
© Fort Jones Community Church, 2012 - 2017
In harmony with this philosophy of ministry, the mission of Fort Jones Community Church is to follow the command of Christ by making disciples in Fort Jones and Scott Valley; baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and teaching them to love the Lord their God with all their hearts, souls and minds, and their neighbors as themselves, which compels them to obey everything that Jesus commanded. As these disciples are developed, they become aware of the all-sufficiency of Jesus Christ as our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King. As this message of the fullness of Jesus is proclaimed and practiced in Scott Valley, it is reflected upon the entire world through our participation in the worldwide effort of the Christian and Missionary Alliance to make disciples of all nations. Our new logo explains graphically what our mission is all about. In order for our church body to achieve all that our philosophy of ministry, mission statement, and goals specify, we set some specific objectives to be achieved on a regular basis in addition to our objective of securing additional facilities. •We must have a viable and Active Growth Group Ministry as the basis of our church Growth. While churches may have grown in the past without this type of ministry, it is evident from church growth research that significant growth today must come through small groups that are ministering to one another on a regular basis. •We are in the business of creating "fishing ponds" where the leaders of our body can go fishing. These "fishing ponds" are the church services, evangelistic meetings, and special events which provide the "fish" in the form of visitors. These "fish" need to be "hooked" by the members of our body reaching out to them. (Luke 5:10) •Our Worship Celebration time on Sunday morning must be the central part of the church. It is a time which calls all of us into participation in giving glory to Jesus Christ. •In order for the members of our body to be prepared for reaching out, it is necessary to have an equipping ministry. Every participant needs to go through our program of leadership training. •If we are to reach the unchurched of Scott Valley, then we must have facilities that are visible, attractive, accessible, and expansible.
