The Weekend Experience at Connect Church is our primary Reach Wide opportunity. Every Sunday is designed to minister to the one who is uncertain about church for sure, and quite possibly even God Himself. The speakers messages are practical and magnetic utilizing humor, video and plain English (not Greek). Our sound is relevant with a 21st century feel, and not something from the middle ages.
At Connect Church, we are constantly hosting community-friendly events. Here are some examples that may be happening soon!
At Connect Church, we are in sincere pursuit of Truth and Wisdom that can truly impact lives. This is done through our "Weekend Experiences" every Sunday and in our "Connection Groups" throughout the week
Small Group. Home Group. Bible Study. Hanging out. Fellowship. All of these things could easily describe our Connection Groups. Find a group near you that fits your schedule and find out for your yourself why we love our Connection Groups!
Connect Church is in partnership with "Feed My Starving Children" and as a church family we assist with their vision regularly. Through financial giving and through volunteering in helping to assemble their amazing food boxes.
Connect Church is in partnership with the New Hope Community Center in Mesa where they serve the homeless and less-fortunate by providing food, clothing, financial assistance, and even job search assistance and training.
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22 Psalm 90:2 Matthew 28:19 1 Peter 1:2 2 Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22,23 Isaiah 9:6 John 1:1-5 14:10-30 Hebrews 4:14,15 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 Romans 1:3,4 Acts 1:9-11 1 Timothy 6:14,15 Titus 2:13
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17 John 16:7-13, 14:16,17 Acts 1:8 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16 Ephesians 1:13 Galatians 5:25 Ephesians 5:18
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Genesis 1:27 Psalm 8:3-6 Isaiah 53:6a Romans 3:23 Isaiah 59:1,2
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 6:23 Ephesians 2:8,9 John 14:6, 1:2 Titus 3:5 Galatians 3:26 Romans 5:1
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally 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 real places of eternal existence. John 3:16 John 14:17 Romans 6:23 Romans 8:17-18 Revelation 20:15 2 Corinthians 2:7-9
