When Jesus ascended into Heaven, the last word He left with his followers was a command. He gave them a mission—that they were to make disciples (other followers) of Jesus. We at Bible Church International are extending that mission to the present. We believe that everyone needs to hear the good news that Jesus Christ came to save them!
At Bible Church International, we place a high value on the family, family values, marriage, the value of life. We seek to create an environment that fosters family unity through care groups, fellowship gatherings, and our sunday worship services.
We view our church not as a building, a meeting, or an establishment, but as a family. Hebrews 10: 23 tells us, let us not give up meeting together...but let us encourage one another. We strive to create unity among all our members and guests. It's beautiful to see men and women of different races, nationalities, ages, and places in life united through Jesus Christ.
Discipleship is a big word that simply means to “teach someone to follow Christ”. Jesus gave us this command in Matthew 28:19, make disciples of all nations... Through teaching, worship, care groups, fellowships, friendships, counseling, and special events, our goal is to continously "lead people to a life of commitment and productivity in Christ".
Worship is adoration and celebration of who God is and what He has done in our lives. We express worship both publicly in large group gatherings, intimately in care groups and fellowships, and individually in our daily lives. Worship is not all about singing songs or coming to church. It's about living your life centered around your uppermost affection.
Ephesians 4:12 and 13 says, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may built up, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. The role of BCI's pastors and ministry leaders is to prepare members to be ministers, faithfully living the gospel in their cultural context.
Stewardship is about using the resources given to you by God in a wise manner. Psalm 24:1 says, the earth is the Lord's and everything in it... Our goal is to teach people how to manage their God-given resources (their time, their money, and their talents and abilities) in a biblical manner for the glory of God.
The church is described in the Bible as the “body of Christ”, the family, and the bride of Christ. We believe that the local church is God’s primary means of redeeming and restoring a lost world and revealing His glory to everyone. We have started several new churches in the past and are constantly looking to plant new churches.
