At Velocity, we consider ourselves an outreach church.  We have an urgency about our message and are intentional and aggressive in our strategies.  To put it simply, if there is no hell, there is no reason for us to exist.  But if there is a hell, then we have a responsibility to our friends, family members, and those that cross our path each and every day.  It all comes back to this...hell is hot, and forever is a very, very long time.  God doesn't want anyone to perish  (John 3:16).  The church holds the hope of the world in its hands.  It does not save you, only Jesus Christ, but we believe that the church plays a vital role in disseminating that truth far and wide.  We are unapologetic in our approach, gracious in our love, and passionate in our pursuit. 

We believe in God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We emphasize the deity of Jesus Christ and the personality of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old & New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary for faith and christian living.

We believe that man is born in sin; that he needs the work of forgiveness through Christ and the new birth by the Holy Spirit; that subsequent to this there is the deeper work of heart cleansing.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and that all will come to final judgment with its rewards and punishments.

 
We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don't know Christ.  To reach the people no one is reaching, we will do things that no one is doing.

We will be spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers.  We understand that the Church does not exist for us.  We are the Church and we exist for the world.

We will pray because He will do great and powerful things if we seek after Him.  We will pray for the specific requests from God, not general prayers, because all things are possible with Him.

Pray for power so that the Spirit of Christ will dwell in us.
Pray to be ONE so that we will bring glory to God
Pray for opportunities to actively share our story so that we fully understand all that we have in Christ.

We will be faith-filled, believing in God to think big and take risks dependent on Him.
