City of Transformation (affectionately called "The City") is a place where change happens and growth occurs! This change starts with a transformed and renewed mind! More simply put changing the way we think. This is based upon the founding scripture for our ministry Romans 12:2 NLT. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. We want to be the catalyst that initiates change that will ultimately cause growth into a well-balanced spirit led messenger of Jesus Christ.
As God showed love for the world per John 3:16, we want to extend that same love as our Father. We are a loving family that embraces all God’s children with genuine Love. You can expect a warm loving atmosphere here. In addition, we have the sensitivity for those who have been hurt, damaged by their past, and wounded by life! We offer love, hope, compassion, and the assurance of a bright future! (Transformation)
We believe in one God all powerful, present everywhere, and all wise. He is creator and he successfully sustains the entire world. He has always identified himself to us through this word as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ the Son of God was born into the world to identify with humanity and bring mankind back into the proper relationship with God. His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead, saved us from the curse of sin and death that entered the world through the sin of Adam the first man.
We believe the Holy Spirit empowers a believer to be an effective witness for Jesus Christ. He is our comforter, he reveals truth. He helps to guide us in living a successful Christian life daily. He also imparts various gifts to members in the body of Christ.
We believe the Holy Bible is the divinely inspired word of God with messages to his favored creation humanity that infuses spirit and life to believers. The Bible provides guidance, encouragement, hope, wisdom and his precious promises and is the final authority for us all. It further reveals God's will for mankind including his position in the earth and his future.
We believe salvation is the manifestation of the love God has for the world. This salvation was purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ the perfect sacrifice with his finished work on Calvary's cross. It is available to those that simply confess Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised him from the dead. We can not obtain this miraculous gift of love by good works, and it is preserved in us by the grace of God.
We believe the church should be the pulse and heartbeat of God in the earth. Every Christian should fellowship with a local assembly in order to grow as well as be cared for and nurtured spiritually. We should offer our support, gifts, and encouragement to fellow believers, & additionally seeking to lead others to Christ through our witness.
We believe that in a moment the Lord will return and those who are prepared will meet him and forever reign with him. Those that are not prepared will experience an eternal separation from him and everlasting punishment.
City of Transformation's mission is to develop a body of healthy believers and transform them so that they will operate with a renewed mind. We desire to minister to the Spirit, Body and Soul, our total makeup as individuals. In turn this will build healthy wholesome individuals and families. We are excited to help people identify their purpose and fulfill their God appointed assignments in the earth!
It is our mission for City of Transformation to look like heaven whenever we assemble. We feel being accessible, being personable, developing partnerships, friendships and unifying together with a common goal we can positively impact the people we serve. In addition, our commitment expands beyond our walls of worship and flows out into our community. You can expect a warm loving atmosphere here.
We will offer healing to our communities by being a house of healing for individuals. By uniting our community together through collaborative efforts and partnerships, we will seek to tear down the walls of perceived differences by offering the reality of similarities by bringing awareness through dialogue, intentional fellowship and various creative efforts.
We will accomplish this by teaching the word of God in an intelligible manner that's relatable to your everyday life experiences as well as not leading from a distance but, connecting and getting in the trenches where the battle is. Also, by embracing the Holy Spirit and allowing him to reveal insight and give us direction. Lastly, by applying what we have been taught or learned from life experiences and others.
