What Is The Purpose  Of The Church


Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “why do we exist?” At St. Paul, we filter every idea, program, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.

Our purpose at St. Paul is summarized in a single statement:

“To reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ.”

Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:

Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart …soul and …mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40)

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:15-20)

Church of the Highlands exists:

·        To worship God with sincere expression.

·        To share the Good News of Jesus with others.

·        To connect with other believers in meaningful relationships.

·        To prepare disciples to fulfill their purpose.

·        To encourage leaders in their God-given destiny.

The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by being God-like in the world, to live in the world as Christ lived, to allow His life to be lived out through His body, the Church.  As Christ was given one mission by the Father, He in turn gives only one mission to His Church.  The Church exists in the world for the same ultimate purpose for which Christ came-to reveal the glory of God to all men.  This is the Great Commission, the mission of the Church, to see God's glory declared among the nations and to see His glory deposited into more and more disciples who congregate in local assemblies among all nations; continuing to radiate His glory to a dark world--until He comes again to extend His Kingdom and His glory throughout the whole earth

Why Membership Matters

Church membership is a covenant relationship between individual Christians who share the same basic beliefs. These Christians take the step of church membership because they are deeply
committed to:

·        Supporting and encouraging one another as they grow spiritually

·        Working together to share Christ with others

·        Seeking together to bless their local area and the world for
God’s glory

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

Romans 10:9




It is a fundamental fact that most people believe in God. Most of us believe that there is a real and living God who created the universe and is all powerful. The issue is; how must I live my life in order to please Him and is that even possible? Some will argue that it isn’t possible to please God simply because we are all sinners and since God is perfect and sinless, how could we possible do anything to deserve His grace and His mercy. So we come to the question, what must I do to be saved? The answer to the question is nothing. It is impossible to please God because all have sinned and come short of His glory (Rom. 3:23). So that brings us to the second question:



Since it is impossible to please God and yet He will save us from our sin and as the writer of Jude wrote in 1:24, “He is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy…”, therefore our redemption is not our own doing. In John 3:16, Jesus says, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. It is very clear that it is the love of God that saves us from our sins and not anything we do to earn our salvation. So someone would ask, “What about believing?” It is true that we must believe the Gospel to be saved but without the love of God and the gift of His own Son for the salvation of the world, there would be no Gospel to believe in. We believe the Gospel of Christ and He receives us into the Kingdom of God. But after we do believe, we come to the third question:



The Apostle Paul clearly states in Rom. 10:9, believing must be expressed. There is power in the tongue; there is power in the spoken word. God created the universe by speaking it into existence. It is clearly stated in scripture the importance of speaking the Word of God. Jesus said in Mat. 17:20, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Our words have power and therefore Paul writes in Rom. 10:9, “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” So you believe in God and His love for you; you have confessed your belief, so let us address the next question:



You believe in God as creator of heaven and earth, you believe that God loves you so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die for your sins, and finally, you believe that your words of faith in the Gospel is your salvation. It is now a good time to pray the prayer of agreement that God will save you. Read the follow prayer out loud, hopefully with the witness of someone whom you truly believe to be a Christian: “Heavenly Father, I believe that you are The Creator of heaven and earth and I believe that You sent Your only begotten Son, Jesus to die for my sins. I now confess with my mouth that Jesus is God and that He died and rose again for my eternal life. I open the door of my heart and I invite you in to save me, in Jesus’ Name I pray and receive my salvation in Christ. Amen” You are now a born again believer in Jesus Christ, PRAISE THE LORD!


It is extremely important for you to take decisive action now. Seek the counsel of a friend or associate whom you know to be a born again believer and request direction in locating a Bible believing Gospel preaching church. Of course you are welcome to join us here at Bethel but what is most important is that you receive believers baptism by water and then to join a Christ-centered church.


Is there a "Children's Church"? ^

No, we do not offer a separate service for children. God blessed children with parents to teach them. What better example to set for your children than for them to sit with you and experience your worship & praise to God!


What should I expect from your worship services? 

Expect to be blessed by God's Word and be in His presence. There is an atmosphere of freedom, joy, love, deliverance and praise ever present.

What to Expect

At flatirons we teach Biblical truths to help people find a better way to do life with Jesus Christ. Our desire is for you to experience the love God has for you no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.

What will be expected of me?

As a first-time guest, we would, however, like you to fill out "The Card" (found in the program as you enter) so we that we can provide any information that you request back to you. We encourage you to visit our church a number of times to get a feel for what is happening at Shepherd.


Why Should I Belong To A Church?


We all have a need to “belong.”  When we receive Jesus Christ into our lives, God places us in His family where we truly belong.  That “family” is His church.  More than belonging to a civic club or some other organization, membership in the church means that we have a spiritual home we can call our own.  The other people in the church body are  our brothers and sisters.  These are the people who will be there to celebrate our victories and help us through our difficulties.  Membership also means that we commit ourselves to lifelong spiritual learning and service to others with our resources, time, skills, and gifts


The Bible - God wrote a book

The Bible is God's Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

(Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16)

Trinity - God: Three in One

God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:13; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19)

Eternity - Somewhere forever

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

(John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13;Revelation 20:15)

Man - God's image bearers

Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God, but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

(Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11)

Salvation - God's only way

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

(Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24;Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18;3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1

The Church - God's design for community

The church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ, to obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

(Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3)

Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10;Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20)



What We Teach

In response to the Philippian jailer who asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” the Apostles responded, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved (Acts 16:31).” The obvious question is: Believe what? What is it that one must believe about Jesus to be saved?

Christianity is NOT a religion based on works, but it is based on belief. The very word “faith” which is the means of grace indicates that there are certain things we must believe.

At St. Paul Baptist Church, we want to be clear about what we teach. We are unashamed to say that we understand the Bible literally, believe that it is inerrant and infallible and look to it as the basis of what we believe as a church. We believe that what a church teaches is vitally important. We encourage you to read our “What We Teach” document so you can be confident that we are teaching what is in accordance with good, sound doctrine.

We hope that by teaching sound doctrine at St. Paul Baptist Church, we will help people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

 What is the Bible

<?<?<?is <?<?<?<?The <?<?<?<?<?<?<?Bible?

The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write the books of the Bible. Every word of scripture is chosen by God himself. The Bible is God’s love letter to all of humanity and is the final authority in every issue it communicates. It is complete truth, and we can trust it for all matters in this life and eternity.

(Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalm 19:7-10; 119:11,89,105,140; Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15:16; 36; Matthew 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16ff.; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12;1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

Who is God?

Many people have differing ideas about the nature of God. Most of those ideas  have one thing in common – they are the product of human intellect!  When it comes to our Creator, it matters very little who we think God is.  The Bible is the only trustworthy source for understanding Him. Scripture  teaches that God created everything we can see -- and even everything we  can’t see -- out of nothing. Although it might be difficult for the  human mind to comprehend, the Bible teaches that He is one, yet has existed  since the beginning of time as three distinct and equal persons: the Father,  the Son and the Holy Spirit.

(Genesis 1:1; 2:7; Exodus 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11ff.;  20:1ff.; Leviticus 22:2; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Psalm  19:1-3; Isaiah 43:3,15; 64:8; Jeremiah 10:10; 17:13; Matthew 6:9ff.; 7:11;  23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Romans  8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 5:7)

Who is Jesus?

Jesus Christ is God’s Son and an equal of the Father. He has existed from the beginning of time, yet lived on earth during the first century A.D. Throughout His earthly life, he was completely God and completely human at the same time. After living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for every human being who has ever lived by dying on a Roman cross. After three days in the grave, he defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He then ascended to Heaven and will return to earth one day to reign as King.

(Genesis 18:1ff.; Psalm 2:7ff.; 110:1ff.; Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 11:27; 14:33; 16:16,27; 17:5; 27; 28:1-6,19; Mark 1:1; 3:11; Luke 1:35; 4:41; 22:70; 24:46; John 1:1-18,29; 10:30,38; 11:25-27; 12:44-50; 14:7-11; 16:15-16,28; 17:1-5, 21-22; 20:1-20,28; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; 9:4-5,20; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 5:6-21; 8:1-3,34; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2:2; 8:6; 15:1-8,24-28; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; 8:9; Galatians 4:4-5; Ephesians 1:20; 3:11; 4:7-10; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:13-22; 2:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16; Titus 2:13-14; Hebrews 1:1-3; 4:14-15; 7:14-28; 9:12-15,24-28; 12:2; 13:8; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 3:22; 1 John 1:7-9; 3:2; 4:14-15; 5:9; 2 John 7-9; Revelation 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16)

Who is the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is a full and equal part of the Trinity. He works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside every follower of Jesus from the moment they decide to follow Him. The Spirit is our power source for life, ministry and spiritual growth. To tap into that power, we must continually yield to the Holy Spirit.

(Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalm 51:11; 139:7ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10,12; Luke 1:35; 4:1,18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17,39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11,14-16,26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11,13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8,14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Revelation 1:10; 22:17)

Who is Man?

Man is the pinnacle of God’s creation and the only being on the earth whom God made in His own spiritual image, with the moral ability to choose right from wrong. Every person, although endowed with the image of God, inherited a disobedient heart from Adam, the very first man. This attitude of disobedience (called sin in the Bible) – unless rectified through Christ – forever keeps man from forming a relationship with his Creator. This attitude also keeps us from being the kind of person God created us to be.

(Genesis 1:26-30; 2:5,7,18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalm 1; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Matthew 16:26; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18,23; 5:6,12,19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18,29; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19,21-22; Ephesians 2:1-22; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11)

What is Salvation?

Our disobedient nature has eternally separated us from our Creator. No matter how hard we try, we can never earn our way back into God’s presence. Our only hope is to trust Jesus as God’s provision for our disobedience. Whenever you make that decision, you step into the eternal and abundant life Jesus promises for all believers.

(Genesis 3:15; Exodus 3:14-17; 6:2-8; Matthew 1:21; 4:17; 16:21-26; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:11-14,29; 3:3-21,36; 5:24; 10:9,28-29; 15:1-16; 17:17; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 15:11; 16:30-31; 17:30-31; 20:32; Romans 1:16-18; 2:4; 3:23-25; 4:3ff.; 5:8-10; 6:1-23; 8:1-18,29-39; 10:9-10,13; 13:11-14; 1 Corinthians 1:18,30; 6:19-20; 15:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; 5:22-25; 6:15; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-22; 4:11-16; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 1:9-22; 3:1ff.; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; 2 Timothy 1:12; Titus 2:11-14; Hebrews 2:1-3; 5:8-9; 9:24-28; 11:1-12:8,14; James 2:14-26; 1 Peter 1:2-23; 1 John 1:6-2:11; Revelation 3:20; 21:1-22:5)

If I Accept Jesus Christ Is My Salvation Forever?

Definitely! Your salvation is through the most trustworthy being in the universe – Jesus Christ! You didn’t do anything to earn your salvation, and you can’t do anything to lose it. Your salvation is maintained by God’s trustworthiness and love, not by what you do. 

(John 3:16; John 10:27-29; Rom. 8:35-39; John 6:37,39; Eph. 1:13-14; John 5:24)

How do we grow as believers?

God has set us apart (sanctified us) for the purpose of growing us to become more like His Son. Through our faith in the Bible and the transforming work of the Holy Spirit, God changes our heart in order to change our character and actions. God’s promise is that when we reach heaven, He will complete the process of making every believer like Jesus.

(Deuteronomy 4:1,5,9,14; 6:1-10; 31:12-13; Nehemiah 8:1-8; Job 28:28; Psalm 19:7ff.; 119:11; Proverbs 3:13ff.; 4:1-10; 8:1-7,11; 15:14; Ecclesiastes 7:19; Matthew 5:2; 7:24ff.; 28:19-20; Luke 2:40; 1 Corinthians 1:18-31; Ephesians 4:11-16; Philippians 4:8; Colossians 2:3,8-9; 1 Timothy 1:3-7; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:14-17; Hebrews 5:12-6:3; James 1:5; 3:17)

Why is evil present in the world?

While God will one day do away with all evil, He currently allows evil in the world - which provides mankind a choice. Satan is the source of all evil and will suffer an eternity of separation from God for his choices. (Hell was originally prepared for the devil and his demons.) Evil is present in the world because of mankind’s choice in the Garden of Eden. Because of Jesus, we have the opportunity to choose the goodness of God’s grace over evil. While God could eliminate evil immediately, He endures the grief of waiting to do so in order to give more people the opportunity to come to faith in Him. God is able to cause all things, even the evil in this world, to work together for the good of those who love Him.

(Genesis 2:17; Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; Psalm 100:5; John 3:19; Psalm 81:12; Revelation 12:7-9; Revelation 20:10; 1 Corinthians 15:56; Colossians 2:15; 1 John 2:2; 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9; Romans 8:28-29)

How Will I Spend Eternity?

God made you to exist forever. Heaven is a perfect place, and since none of us is perfect we were all headed for an eternity of separation from God. That’s why God sent Jesus: to pay the price for our sins so that we can spend eternity with Him. What you decide about Jesus Christ in this life will determine where you will spend eternity. If you reject Him, you’ll spend it eternally separated from God in Hell. If you accept Him, you’ll spend it eternally connected with Him in Heaven. Hell is a place of separation, suffering and darkness. Heaven is a place of eternal joy in God’s presence.

(Isaiah 2:4; 11:9; Matthew 16:27; 18:8-9; 19:28; 24:27,30,36,44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40,48; 16:19-26; 17:22-37; 21:27-28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 17:31; Romans 14:10; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 15:24-28,35-58; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Philippians 3:20-21; Colossians 1:5; 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 5:1ff.; 2 Thessalonians 1:7ff.; 2; 1 Timothy 6:14; 2 Timothy 4:1,8; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:27-28; James 5:8; 2 Peter 3:7ff.; 1 John 2:28; 3:2; Jude 14; Revelation 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13)

What is the church?

The Bible tells us that the church is the body of Christ in  the world today. The New Testament tells us the church is a local body of baptized  believers. The head of the church is Jesus Christ. The biblical purposes of  the church are worship, evangelism, fellowship, discipleship and ministry to  others. We state those purposes in a process in LifePoint's Purpose Statement:

To bring people to Jesus and membership in His family, develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their life mission in the world, in order to magnify God’s name.

What can I expect in church?

You'll enjoy upbeat music and practical messages that help you deal with real life issues. We'll even give you a helpful outline with the Bible passages. What you learn on the weekend, you'll be able to use during the week. When you join us in the main worship center in one of our services we want to help you connect with the personal hope and practical help that God can give us.

Music has the power to speak to the heart! Since we all have hearts that thrive on encouragement and that need to be energized - the music at Friends is encouraging and energizing.


Pastor Manor that teach focus their messages on real life issues. We want you to be able to say that what we talked about on the weekend gave you something that could help you on Monday: in your family, at your work, with your life. It's not about religion, it's about a relationship with God. It's not about pretending that we're perfect, it's about a God who is willing to give His grace to grow us.
