A Supreme View of God. 

  • There is nothing more important than God (Psalm 96:4-6).

  • God is perfectly holy and righteous (Psalm 145:17; 1 Samuel 2:2).

  • God requires me to be holy (1 Peter 1:16).

 

A Sufficient View of the Bible.

  • The God-breathed Bible originates from the very being of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

  • The Bible has complete authority over my thoughts, actions, emotions, and senses (Psalm 119).

  • While the Bible may not give us an explicit answer to every specific problem, it is sufficient to give us the principles and desires of God in order to glorify him in any circumstance (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:17).

  • The Bible is totally relevant for today (Hebrews 4:12).

 

A Sanctified View of Man.

  • Man is totally depraved with no hope of goodness in himself (Romans 3:10-12).

  • Man seeks to glorify himself (Isaiah 53:6). 

  • Through Christ’s substitutionary death and resurrection alone, man can have a new nature that glorifies God (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:24).

 

A Sacred View of the Church’s Mission. 

  • The church exists for the sole purpose of glorifying God (Proverbs 16:4; Ephesians 1:5-6; 1 Peter 4:11; 1 Corinthians 10:31). 

  • There are three basic ways in which the church glorifies God:

 

  1. The church brings the gospel to sinners in need of salvation (Matthew 16:16-18; 1 Corinthians 1:21; Acts 1:8).

  2. The church is the storehouse of truth (1 Timothy 3:15).

  3. The church builds up (disciples) Christians for further ministry (Ephesians 4:12-16).

 

A Suitable Leadership.

  • Leaders must model the character of Christ (1 Thessalonians 2:4-12; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-5). 

  • Leaders must equip the flock to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12). 

  • Leaders must give opportunities for others to serve (Hebrews 10:24). 

Hampton NH Church Churches

We believe that all of mankind was created for the sole purpose of glorifying God. Upon salvation, Christians enter into a relationship with God that requires a process of change. This change, known as sanctification, is being an imitator of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1) through the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). An understanding of biblical truth about God results in a spiritual response to God that we refer to as "worship." So truly, the Christian life is centered upon the worship of God through one's entire life, and not just one church service each week, even though corporate worship is imperative. Paul even points this out in Romans 12:1 by referring to a Christian as a "living sacrifice" that must have acceptable worship in the sight of God. It is for this reason that our Philosophy of Ministry (Our Core Values) are built around worship. Our Five Values are:
