Our Faith

 

 

VISION …

To encourage “10,000 Bikers!” to be in the Bible every week all across the USA and Canada.

 

MISSION …

To promote study and discussion of the Word of God.  The purpose is not just “academic.” In fact, regular interaction with Scripture can be a life-changing experience.

 

KEY SCRIPTURE …

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  (Rom 10:17, KJV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.  (Rom 12:2, NIV)

 

SPIRITUAL COVER …

We operate as a ministry under the church cover of Reach One Missional.  Reach One Missional is a “missional community” (a church that serves outside the walls with the Gospel in the world).

We are “interdenominational.”  Though recognizing and respecting denominations, we don’t promote or endorse one denomination over another.  We preach and teach Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God.

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE …

THE BIBLE – is the inspired Word of God.  It was divinely inspired and is inerrant as Scripture.  The Bible is protected by the ministry of the Holy Spirit and serves as the final authority for matters of faith and the practice of the Christian lifestyle.

THE PERSON OF GOD – unity of the Godhead (one God), eternally existing in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and yet identical in nature; all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere present, and unchangeable; infinitely perfect in love, truth, righteousness, justice, goodness, grace, and mercy.

JESUS CHRIST – the Son of God, fully God and fully man, with the two natures mysteriously existing in one Person. He was conceived supernaturally by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He performed miracles as a sign of His deity to glorify and make known our Father in heaven and His Kingdom here on earth.  He lived a sinless life, yet suffered and died on the cross, which served as a perfect and satisfactory sacrifice for the sin of the whole world. He arose from the dead on the third day, and His resurrection in the body guarantees the resurrection of all who put their trust in Him. He ascended to the right hand of God the Father where He now reigns over the universe and intercedes for the Kingdom, which He will return to earth some day to fully establish here.

MAN – was created in the image and likeness of God but fell into disobedience and rebellion through a voluntary decision.  As a result, man was separated from God, and therefore, was spiritually dead.  This spiritual death also subjected man to physical death. The fallen nature of man was transmitted throughout the generations and inherited by the generations to all humanity born in and of the flesh.  The blood of Jesus Christ was shed for our redemption.

SIN AND SALVATION – Jesus paid the price for all sin on the cross.  Those who receive Him by faith are born anew of the Holy Spirit to become children of God.  Faith alone is the condition for salvation, which is a spiritual issue encompassing both forgiveness and reconciliation.  Good works and righteous living should accompany saving faith and serve as evidence of  salvation.

THE HOLY SPIRIT – indwells and seals every believer at the moment of saving faith (born again). The ministry of the Holy Spirit glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ and serves to convict men of sin; regenerate the believing sinner; and indwell, guide, instruct,and empower the believer for godly living and service.

THE CHURCH – composed of all who genuinely accept Jesus Christ as Savior and put their trust in Him as Lord, is united together into one body, of which He is the Head. As members of the Church, it is our responsibility to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, supporting the church both locally and globally, loving one another with pure hearts.

 

THE QUESTION …

Would a loving God really send you and me to hell?

 

THE ANSWER …

No!  Absolutely not!  It is the sin and rebellion in our world that will send so many to hell.  Furthermore, it is not God’s will that any should be lost (2 Pet 3:9).

A loving God would actually send mankind a way out of this hopeless situation.  And that’s exactly what God did.  

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
