our mission

our mission: 

is to make disciples of jesus christ

-Matthew 28:19


Disciple - noun; fully devoted follower of Christ.


OUR VISION:

We see Pine Ridge...

1.  Reaching out to people with the love of Christ   -Matthew 28:19

2.  Equipping every generation to follow Christ   -Ephesians 4:11-12

3.  Sending disciples to their spheres of influence   -Acts 1:8


OUR DISCIPLESHIP PROCESS: 

As people become disciples they mature and develop. We have identified how that process looks at Pine Ridge so that people can see where they are at in the growth process and know what their next step is to becoming a mature disciple. 

Here is how we break down the discipleship process:

1. Worshiping - this follower is participating in our large Sunday worship gathering (Hebrew 10:25)  

2. Connecting - this follower is connecting with Christ and other followers (John 15:5)  

3. Serving - this follower is serving Christ with his/her own divine design (Ephesians 4:11-12)  

4. Leading - this follower is making and leading other disciples (2 Timothy 2:2)

what we believe

1.   We believe in the verbal inspiration of all the Scriptures of both the Old and the New Testaments, and           that they are the final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21) 

2.   We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

      (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-3; Acts 5:3-4) 

3.   We believe in the virgin birth of Christ, and that He is true God and true man. 

      (Luke 1:30-35; Colossians 2:9) 

4.   We believe that the Jesus Christ died for our sins, and with His blood obtained for us eternal

       redemption. (Romans 3:25-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21) 

5.   We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, and His

       present life there as our High Priest and Advocate. 

      (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Ephesians 1:20; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 15:20) 

6.   We believe in the personal, pre-millenial, imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

       (1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:9; Revelation 19:11-20:6) 

7.   We believe in the total depravity of all mankind, and in the necessity of regeneration. 

       (Romans 3:9-18; Ephesians 2:1, 4-5) 

8.   We believe that salvation is a free gift of God, entirely apart from works, and is possessed by all who

       have by faith received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. (Ephesians 2:8-9) 

9.   We believe that since salvation is a free gift, that all true believers, once saved, shall be kept saved

      forever. (John 5:24; 10:28; 1 John 5:13) 

10. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person and that He indwells all believers. 

       (John 14:16-17; Ephesians 1:13; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22) 

11. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the

       saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Revelation 20:11-15) 

12. We believe that there are two ordinances that the Christian is commanded to observe: namely

       Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Table. (Matthew 28:19-20, 26:26-29)

13. We believe God ordained marriage to be a covenant relationship between one man, one woman, and

       God. Any sexual relationship outside a biblically consistent marriage relationship is sin. 

       (Genesis 2:21-25; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20; Romans 1:24-32)
