What Kardia believes
Jesus is our ultimate vision, goal, Lord, savior and teacher. We aspire to lift up Jesus in all we are and do.
Prayer and dependence on God through the Holy Spirit are central to the life of our church.
The Holy Scriptures are authoritative for all questions of faith and practice, and Bible Study is essential for growth in Christ. Our preaching is squarely based on the Word of God in Scripture, and we trust the Bible over the opinions of culture.
We share Jesus’ heart for the unchurched, those who do not have faith in Christ. We want to not only invite people to church, but we want to be the church in the world, the church that goes out to reach people who might not otherwise “come to church.” We seek new ways of being Christ’s body in today’s culture.
Small groups are the main vehicle for discipleship and growth in our church. We want to live out our faith in the context of like-minded community where we can love and be loved, where we can know and be known, and where we can experience at the most intimate level the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to being a community of grace, acknowledging our own need of forgiveness and salvation through the gospel of Jesus and extending that grace to all people, regardless of race, gender, background or socio-economic status.
We believe Jesus calls all people to radical discipleship, and we seek to be followers of Jesus Christ in our daily lives while helping others answer this call as well.
We affirm the traditional faith of the Christian church as represented in the following Apostle’s Creed.
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
