Faith Statement

Christ’s love, grace, and mercy is the center of The Sparrow’s Nest. We believe God is perfect and we are not. But somehow God unconditionally loves every single one of us so much so that he sent his perfect and holy Son to rescue us from the death we earned for our sin. (John 3:16, Rom 3:23, 6:23, Micah 6:8)

We believe salvation is this crazy gift from God and there is nothing in this world we can do to earn it. We can accept God’s gift of salvation by trusting that His gift pays for our sins, and by sharing love to God and others. (Eph 2:4-10)

We believe our journey of trust begins when we lovingly obey the gospel (turning from sin, confessing Christ, connecting with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection in baptism) and continues as we humble ourselves daily to the transforming power of the resurrected Christ. (Rom 6:1-14)

We believe salvation is powerful, and when we receive His gift of grace we……start over and live a new life here on earth (2 Cor 5:17)

…have forgiveness from God for all our sins (Acts 2:38)

…share in table fellowship with God and His family (Acts 2:42-47)

…receive His Holy Spirit to guide and empower us (Eph 1:12-14)

…are blessed with spiritual gifts, the greatest being love (1 Cor 12-14)

…are adopted as God’s sons and daughters (Eph 1:3-6)

…are being transformed to be more like Christ (Rom 12:1-2)

…look forward to being resurrected in Christ (Phil 3:10-11)

…get to spend eternity with God and His family forever (Rev 21:2-4)

We believe His story continues today—we can discover our place in the story as we study the Bible and grow with His family to live according to His will. (Phil 1:6)
