Vision

To become a Spirit-led community so captivated and transformed by Christ that our church life pulses with three passions:

Living From Our Identity in Christ - We exude joyful confidence that God delights in us as His beloved in Jesus. As believers we are freed to become the righteousness of God in Christ according to God’s plans and purposes for our lives.

Welcoming and Caring for God’s Beloved - We show compassionate interest in people who are apart from Christ and we follow God’s lead in loving them; we welcome people into an authentic, relational faith community; and we create opportunities to know and care for each other.

Becoming a House of Prayer - We encounter and honor the Lord through lives of vibrant worship and prayer. We pray to commune with God and receive the inheritance Jesus purchased for us.

Beliefs

Human Nature – We believe that human nature is sinful, separates us from God,

and is redeemed only by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23)

Salvation – We believe that Christ alone provides salvation. This salvation is a

gift, by grace alone. We partake of this free gift of grace by faith alone . This leads to the

assurance of eternal life. (Acts 4:12; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:28; I John 5:12;

and John 3:16, 5:24)

The Church – We believe that the one true Christian Church comprises all who

have been justified by God's grace through faith alone and in Christ alone. The Bible instructs

all Christians to gather together regularly to devote themselves to worship, prayer, biblical

teaching, fellowship, service, and outreach to the world. (Ephesians 4:4-6; Romans 12:5; Acts

2:42-47; Ephesians 2:19-22; and Hebrews 10:24-25)

Prayer – We believe in prayer and that God answers prayer according to His

will. We encourage everyone to grow in prayer and to develop a prayer-filled life. (James 5:16,

and Matthew 18:18-20)

Sacrament of Baptism – We believe, in accordance with Luther’s Large and

Small Catechisms, that Jesus instituted Holy Baptism. We believe that God truly acts in this

sacrament. Baptism does not guarantee salvation; faith is essential for its effectiveness. (Mark

16:16 and John 3:16)

Sacrament of the Lord's Supper – We believe, in accordance with Luther’s

Large and Small Catechisms, that Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper. We believe that God truly

acts in this sacrament and that our faith is essential for its effectiveness. Taking this sacrament

does not guarantee salvation; it must be received in faith. (1 Corinthians 11:29 and John 3:16)

Changed Life – We believe that being a Christian leads to a changed life. This is

called sanctification, which is a lifelong process of growth in selfless love, humility, service,

stewardship, and holiness by the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 5:17;

Matthew 7:17-18; 2 Peter 3:18; James 1:22 and 2:17; Romans 12:2; 2 Corinthians 3:18 and

5:17; and Ephesians 4:22-24)

Marriage – We affirm that God created us male or female. By God’s design,

marriage is the union of one male and one female. It is God’s will and intention that human

sexual expression and fulfillment take place only within the boundaries of marriage. In light of

this, Olivet will neither host nor officiate a marriage ceremony that fails to conform to this biblical

definition of marriage. (Genesis 2:24-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Leviticus 18:22-23; Ephesians 5:31;

and Mark 10:2-9)

Human Life – We believe in the sanctity of all human life, including the unborn.
