Vision & Values

What We Believe

 Love God. Serve Others. Reach Our Community and World.

Our Vision:
We envision a multi-generational community of theologically-sound believers, who manifest Christ’s character, by applying biblical principles to daily life, encouraging one another spiritually and relating the Gospel to our culture.

Tri-State Fellowship was founded on the idea that a church isn’t a building – it’s made up of people who seek to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known. And to be successful in that endeavor, people need to know the Bible – the source of teaching about God’s plan for ages and His work of grace through Christ. But this knowledge is more than something intellectual, it is practical instruction for life in a fallen world. And beyond ourselves, this relationship with God through Jesus Christ is a compelling message to be shared by life and word with all people, near and far. To bring it together in a simple purpose statement, our purpose is to disciple generations to love God, serve one another, and reach our community and world.

We believe in one Creator God who is revealed in the Scriptures, teaching us of his son Jesus Christ, who is true God and true man. We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God. We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as a means of salvation. To view all of our beliefs, please click here to download a pdf.
