We’re about loving God, loving all people and loving our community.
We believe that the bible is the inspirational Word of God, a historical and prophetic living document, in which the old and new testaments are the truth for all matters of life. We are an inter-denominational church, inviting all backgrounds and diversities to be part of the ILC family!
Our Culture & Core Values
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
“Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.”
“...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.”
1 Corinthians 13:2
“Honor all people, love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the King.”
1 Peter 2:17
“So Jesus called them together and said, ‘You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.’”
5. CELEBRATION & JOY
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”
“These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.”
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
7. STEWARDING HIS PRESENCE
OT - “Remember, the fire must be kept burning on the altar at all times. It must never go out.” Lev 6:13
NT – (Parable of the 10 Virgins) Matthew 25:1-13
•Our God is a trinity in unity, manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
•In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory;
•That if you confess with your mouth and sincerely believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord, you are saved and a new life begins;
•In water baptism by immersion for believers, which is a direct commandment of our Lord, in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit;
•In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, received subsequent to the new birth;
•In the Lord’s supper, consisting of the elements, bread and the fruit of the vine, as the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ and as a memorial of his suffering and death;
•In a life of holiness, following Jesus Christ as a perfect example, through sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace;
•That every individual was created for a specific purpose to utilize their unique God given gifts and talents to spread the message of the Gospel.
This can be summarized in four essential truths:
1. The Bible is the Word of God.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.” 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT
“We also thank God continually because, when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it, not as the word of men, but actually as it is, the Word of God, which is at work in you who believe.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13
God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority and we accept the Bible as our manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, “What does the Bible say?” We practice daily Bible reading and Bible study. The Bible is the basis for all we believe.
2. Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
“For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’ There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them.” Acts 4:11-12 NLT
Jesus Christ, second Person of the Trinity, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us. He baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit and will return to earth to consummate history.
3. You must be Born Again.
“When anyone becomes a Christian he becomes a new person inside. The old passes away, a new life has begun.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 LB
Jesus: “If you try to keep your life for yourself, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find true life.” Matthew 16:25 NLT
God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God’s grace - not human effort - and must be received personally by repentance and faith. At the end, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and the judgment. Only believers will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.
4. Believers can be Spirit Filled and Spirt Led.
“...you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you...” Acts 1:8
“...be filled with the Holy Spirit” Ephesians 5:18
“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:13
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. Every believer can be filled with the Holy Spirit by simply asking. We seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.
