• Partnerships in the Gospel

    ...and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth–to every nation, tribe, language and people

    Local Church Culture

     

    Paul was sent from a local church, started several local churches, and was received by local churches. We identify with and follow this from-church-to-church pattern found throughout the New Testament. As relationships with leaders outside of our church are developed, common partnerships in ministry and accountability are formed. These affiliations create and magnify opportunities for us to extend the ministry of the gospel to others both in and beyond our locale.

     

     

    Relational Not Denominational

     

    There were no denominations in the early church. Churches were identified by the city, town or household in which they were located. They were held together by a body of common truths and beliefs rather than by their affiliation to a specific person or group (see 1 Corinthians 3:1-23 which addresses church affiliation).

    Relational but Not Independent

     

    While there were no denominations in the early church, there were strong partnerships with trans-local ministry gifts. We partner with a trans-local team of Ephesians 4 gifts from around the world. We believe that our partnership with these leaders is not only valuable to Liberty Church but vital to its leadership and growth. We receive these leaders regularly into the life of our church with love and joy.
