ACC’s Core Commitments: (i.e., why do we exist?)
The church exists as a worshipping community that exalts the Lord. Since He chose and predestined sons unto Himself in Christ to the praise of the glory of His grace, this Body of believers seeks to render supreme worth to Him who called us into fellowship with Himself and His people. We strive to be God-centered in what we believe and how we behave (see Eph 1; Jn 4; Rev 4, 5, 19, 21-22).
Central to our gathering together is the expositional preaching and teaching of the Word, that which is inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient. Since God’s Word and His Spirit are the means God uses to adequately equip His Church for lives of godliness, we seek to explain what God means by what He has said, and train others to diligently study and teach the Bible (see Eph 4:11-12; 2 Tim 3:16-17; 4:2; 2 Pet 1:3-4).
The Church’s central mission, which we cannot do in heaven, is evangelize the world, offering them hope for this life and eternity as they turn from their sin and place their faith in Christ alone. We announce that Christ has made redemption through His blood and that by repentance and faith you can receive remission of sins and entrance into the kingdom of God (see Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Rom 1:16-17; 10:11-15).
