Above the clouds

Our Philosophy

The Bible is at the heart of all that we believe and is the foundation for our Sincerely & Closely Held Beliefs. The Bible is positioned at the center of our name, “Ascent Bible Church.” Our five (5) Vision Principles focus on the Ministry Areas which comprise our Vision: Worship, Edification, Fellowship, Ministry, and Missions. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8

The theme verse of our church clearly defines our philosophy in life and in worship: “Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law.” Psalm 119:18

Our sincere desire is to help people truly “see” that the Bible does, in fact, hold “wondrous” promises, knowledge, and guidance which are key to living a rich and satisfying life of fulfillment and purpose.

It is our goal and commitment to walk with Christ’s followers through life’s challenges and opportunities as they experience the excitement and revelation which comes from seeking to know God and His will through careful study of the scriptures and an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

Everything we do throughout the week is secondary to Sunday mornings. Sunday is when we come together to Praise and Worship God through prayer, song, and the preaching of His Word. We do this to glorify God and help each individual realize and embrace God’s will and purpose for their life. We begin with prayer each Sunday morning because prayer is the foundation for all of God’s work at Ascent Bible Church.

No one is exempt from life’s challenges. The Bible is our authority on how best to deal with issues when they arise. Because God created us, His wisdom and instruction offer the best approach for overcoming doubt, pain, fear, weakness, or limitations which confront us, not only in our daily lives but even in extreme circumstances. With biblical wisdom for guidance, we walk hand-in-hand with those who, for example, are dealing with sickness & disease, struggling to overcome addictions, or who find themselves in difficult relationships. Hebrews 10:24-25 reminds us to:

… consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
