About SOSMany have said that the acronym S.O.S. in our name states our purpose: Seekers Of Souls. For even the Apostle Paul declared that he was not seeking his own profit or gain, but seeking “the profit of many, that they may be saved.
Our Mission & Vision
Hope for the Hopeless
The Apostle Paul once wrote: “be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.” (I Cor. 10:33-11:1) God has called us to follow in this example: pursuing those who are hopeless so they may become believers of our Lord. This has become our vision and passion in following both the example of Christ and Paul.
Though the Lord is the one who convicts, draws, and saves, He has called all believers to seek out the lost and bear witness to His message of redemption. As echoed in the words of the dear Apostle in the book of Romans, we too desire to have “beautiful feet”.
“But you will receive the power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
– Jesus (Acts 1:9)
Our Statement of Faith
We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: co-equal, perfect, and eternal.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, absolutely authoritative, infallible, and without error.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ: truly God and truly man; He is the only Savior of the world through His atoning sacrifice of dying on the cross and rising again from the dead in bodily form; and that His return is imminent.
Mankind and Sin
We believe that God is the creator of the entire universe, including man, whom He created in His own image; because of the original sin of Adam and Eve, all of mankind is sinful, lost, and can only be reconciled to God through the work of Christ on the cross.
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus alone (apart from any human effort); it is a gift of God.
The Role of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, regenerates the lost, and indwells and sanctifies the believer.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead; believers in Christ to eternal life in heaven and all non-believers to eternal conscious damnation.
We believe that the church is a body of believers commissioned by Christ to make disciples of all nations by evangelizing the lost and edifying the saved.
“Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.“
– 2 Timothy 4:2
