Tree 197 Ministries Believes….
Jesus is the Son of God.
He is coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Galatians 5:25; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18
The Bible is God’s Word to us.
The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.
2 Timothy 3:16, 1:13; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
We believe every Christian should belong to a local church and take ownership of that church. This includes serving, giving, and participating in a biblical community, both INSIDE the walls of the church and OUTSIDE the walls of the church. Why Ownership? Members have rights, Owners have responsibilities. We offer Ownership classes where you’ll learn the vision and values of The Tree. We’ll explain our core values of our church. Ownership Class is designed for 7th grade to adults who want to learn more about what it means to be in community with our Tree Family. Listen for Sign-ups at the church on Sunday or dates posted on the site. This class is strongly suggested so you can take ‘Ownership’ at The Tree and feel you have an understanding of our values and vision moving forward. At The Tree Church, we’re working to reach every person in Camden, Morgan and Miller counties with the gospel of Jesus and restore them to their rightful place as co-labors in Jesus Christ. We’d love for you to join us! If you’re interested in becoming an Owner, let us know and someone will be in touch with you to help you take your next step.
