The Sycamore Church is a life-giving church! To define that a little more means that we speak God's best to people's lives. All of us have faults but given the opportunity to hear what God can do in us gives us possibility. The Sycamore Church is about giving possibility to people by speaking God's best to them.
We believe the Gospel of Jesus saves. It's in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus that we find the template for salvation through repentance, baptism and the filling of His Spirit. It's our belief in Jesus and what he's accomplished for us that we have the power to be part of the family of God.
We are convinced if you come to know Jesus your life will never be the same. There is no way that you can encounter Him and leave the same way.
We are thankful for the opportunity of repentance. It's a decision to turn from our ways and choosing to do things God's way. Repentance is the acknowledgement of our sin and our need for Jesus.
Baptism is the act of faith that Jesus has washed away our sins. We don't see our sins floating in the water but it is an act in the body that performs a profound spiritual transaction giving us the power to approach God with a clear conscience. (I Peter 3:21)
We believe God's Spirit comes to dwell in the lives of believers, allowing us to be part of the family of God and overcome sin. The Holy Spirit is a comforter, teacher, and keeper to those who have received Him. We rely on the leading of God's spirit as believers to do His will and bless the world around us. We are born again by the baptism of water and the spirit. ( John 3:1-5)
Our lives were meant to be lived with passionate purpose. That purpose was put in you by God. Our hope is that you discover your purpose and put it to use for the glory of God, a blessing for others and the empowerment of yourself.
We believe Jesus is returning for the church. This great event is the Second coming of Christ and is the hope we as believers have to look forward to.
