statement of faith
Our beliefs align with those of the Lausanne Covenant found HERE. Significantly, by referencing this covenant, we affirm Jesus Christ as head of His diverse and dispersed people. And that the Holy Spirit in them makes them to be His living and active body, united in all things (John 17:15-23).
On Jesus, The Christ
Jesus, the Christ, is the God-man. He is one of the three persons of the One God. The Tribal Family is His family.
While we don't elevate Jesus above the other two persons of our One God, we want to accent His role because He has made the way for us to take part in the life of the Trinity. Through His teaching, His example, His death, His resurrection, His ascension, and the giving of The Spirit He has bridged the very persons and eternal life of the Godhead to ourselves, His created world, and our place in it in profound ways that are truly mysterious (Colossians 1:19-20). All who are being renewed as His image bearers are reborn "in Christ Jesus" (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:4-6; Romans 8:38-39; Ephesians 1:7; 2 Corinthians 5:17, 21). If you would like to know more about what it means to be "in" Christ and to live as His people – in a living relationship with Him where you are known and loved – please reach out to us through our contact page. We'd love to help.
The Trinity and the HOly spirit
A proper, orthodox understanding of the Trinity and the Holy Spirit are fundamental to everything we are and do as God's People. As such, we want to accent that as God's dispersed people are the body of Christ – our ability to relate to Him, to live in Him, and to incarnate Him rightly to our world has everything to do with our One God's three-ness and the living and active work of the Holy Spirit. These are more than doctrines that create a framework for living as God's People in and to the world. These are foundational realities of God, woven into the ontological fabric of all creation.
