This is the first step of faith. It is asking and receiving Jesus Christ into one's life to be your Lord and Savior. It is the beginning of having
a real relationship with Jesus Christ. The end result is eternal life in heaven but the immediate gain is peace with God, forgiveness for all sins past, present, and future, and the gift of the
Holy Spirit who comes to live in every believer. Our focus will always be to point people to Be in Christ.
Grow like Christ
Upon salvation, we are never to be the same. We are no longer under the control of sin but now under the control of
the Holy Spirit. We practice the importance of using the Bible as the basis for everything we do in our life. We preach and teach from the Bible and encourage everyone to spend a daily
quiet time reading and studying the Bible and connecting to God through prayer and meditation. We also emphasize that growing like Christ cannot be done alone. We offer a mid-week
Bible Study each Wednesday evening at 6:30 to learn and grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ in the care and compassion of a group of life coaches who are there to not only teach but
to share and to care. The goal of every Christian must be to Grow like Christ.
Live for Christ
"Living for the Lord" is a common theme at our church. We believe that the local church is God's provision
for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. The church has a distinct purpose to evangelize the lost, establish the new converts in the essentials of Christianity, and equip each
person for carrying out the mission of the church. All believers are called to serve in some capacity in the local church, caring for those in the household of faith and for those in the
communities surrounding the church.
Hoskins Avenue will always be an outwardly reaching church. The church reaches out into the
community to meet, talk with, and invite people to church. Our members are prepared to share the gospel and to share their story of how God changed their lives. We offer community
care programs that provides food, clothing, and host community activities that bring people together in love and fellowship.
