At Resting Place Community Church, it's our mission to help you explore and grow your relationship with Holy Spirit, Father God and Jesus. Join us Sunday evening and experience the warmth and faith of our church family.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and SEEK MY FACE, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chr. 7:14
Your generosity will enable us to keep spreading His Love and Presence to our community.
Resting Place seeks to provide a nurturing place for those who have been wounded in life to find and grow closer to Holy Spirit, Father God, Jesus and each other. The inner healing that has occurred at Resting Place has only been possible through seeking God’s face, and letting Him renew people from the inside out.
Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE there is one God who lives forever in three persons; the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19)
WE BELIEVE that the Bible is God’s Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and
without error. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
WE BELIEVE in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His
miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the
Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love.
(Jn. 1:14-18; 1 Thess. 4:16-18)
WE BELIEVE that the primary purpose for Jesus Christ’s life on earth was to fully reveal
the love of God the Father for the people of this world through His ministry, life, death on the cross and resurrection. (Jn 3:16; Jn 5:19-20)
WE BELIEVE that all mankind is lost in sin and needs to turn from it and trust personally
in the Savior, Jesus Christ; all need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit’s power into
God’s family. (Eph. 2:1-10; Jn. 3:5-7)
WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He
works in and through us with His charismatic gifts. (Gal. 5:22-23; 1Cor. 12:7-11)
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and
eternal punishment for the unbeliever. (Matt. 25:31-46, Rev. 20:10-15, Matt. 7:21-23)
WE BELIEVE in unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community
together. We want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body,
the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only
as His life flows in and through us. (1 Cor. 12:12-13; Matt. 22:37-40)
WE BELIEVE that marriage is the basic human relationship between one man and one
woman, and as such is intended to reflect the relationship between Jesus Christ the
Bridegroom and His bride the church (Gen 2:18-25, Eph 5:25-32)
We are a part of the Partners in Harvest network of churches worldwide. We first started serving people in one of the pastor’s homes in 1995. Over the years as more people came, the church expanded, moving to different rented locations. In November of 2012 we moved into our own building with land for future expansion.
