Why Steadfast Community Church?
“Steadfast” is an important reminder that our lives are controlled by the work of the cross, and as such, our “labor is not in vain.” We exist to provide opportunities for edification at both the personal level and within our church family as we remember that our victory over sin, the flesh, and the devil is in Christ, not the law. We hope that the Lord will continue to work in our church as He brings people to our fellowship group and grows us in loving and serving one another.
Our God “Will be the stability of your times” (Isaiah 33:6)
May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the Steadfastness of Christ. (2 Thessalonians 3:5)
Steadfast may be a less familiar word today, but we know stead. To be steadfast is to be fixed and solid, stable and not shifting (Colossians 1:23). To be immovable but also abounding (1 Corinthians 15:58) not just defensive, holding fast against the tides, but also active, advancing, on the offensive. “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it” (Colossians 4:2)
“Community” is likewise significant. It suggests both genuine fellowship within our church family and an open door to those around us. As members of one body, we seek to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3). As a light in our community, we’re a place of peace for those in chaos, a place of forgiveness for the guilty, and a place of hope for the hopeless.
“Church” however, is paramount because of its absolute uniqueness. While “Steadfast” and “Community” were our choice in defining who we are, “Church” was mandated by God — as revealed in His Word. It is His designation for the assembly of people called by His name. As such, our course has been charted by God; our destiny has been planned by God; our members have been chosen by God; our purposes have been defined by God.
We trust you’ll discover God’s grace among us. Our prayer is that we’ll live up to His name.
