Church at The Epicenter operates within a Kingdom Government ... overseen by elders and supported by Deacons. Our ministries are developed under the New Testament administration of a 5-Fold Ministry.
It is our firm belief that, in order for the glory of God (His presence and power) to be fully realized within His church, its ministries must be administrated the way it was established by Jesus Christ, in the New Testament. (Ephesians 4)
We believe in ...
1. God the Father : the creator and sustainer of all creation; the One who has a plan and destiny for every created being.
2. Jesus the Son : the savior and redeemer of all fallen mankind; the One who, through His life, death, burial, and resurrection made it possible for every believer to be restored to His original, righteous state before a Holy God.
3. Holy Spirit : the teacher, comforter, and empowerer of every believer; the One who equips us to live victoriously in a fallen world by walking in the power and authority of Christ's completed work on the cross.
7 NON-NEGOTIABLES ...
1. God is good
... nothing about Him is bad!
2. No irrelevant teaching
... we teach the Word of God; not social issues!
3. The church is Christ's Body
... not man's business organization!
4. No one stands alone
... everyone is accepted; no judgment!
5. No religious pretense
... real people; no "masks"!
6. Purpose matters
... we are not driven by programs!
7. No part-time worship
... worship is more than a Sunday morning "activity"; it's a 24/7/365 WAY OF LIFE!
It is the stated conviction of our founding pastor, Kyle Byrd, that the missing element of today's church is the principle of New Testament community. Community is ... the experience of knowing and being known, loving and being loved, supporting and being supported, celebrating and being celebrated.
If you are looking for more than just a place to "go to church"; if you are looking for a community of faith, a faith "family", we invite you to visit Church at The Epicenter! We are not perfect, but we know the One who is and we are striving to know Him and make Him known!
Church at The Epicenter is a Christ-centered, Bible-based, non-denominational church that believes every saint has a past and every sinner has a future! In short, there are no "perfect" people here ... only those looking to be changed!
