This simple statement sums up the mission of Jacob’s Well. We want to grow a worshiping community that finds all of our life in Jesus Christ and brings Jesus Christ into all of our life. This is the Gospel and it is our hope that the Gospel would inform all that we are as a church. At Jacob's Well Church, our core values include:
The Gospel changes everything.
The Gospel is “the power of God” (Romans 1:16) for the transformation of unbelievers and believers. We never advance past the Gospel.
The Gospel is not just the A-B-C’s, but the A to Z of Christianity. It is the solution not only for our spiritual dilemma, but also for all personal (Colossians 1:16) and societal problems (Galatians 2:14). Jacob’s Well is committed to bringing everything we do in line with the truth of the Gospel.
The Gospel as Truth revealed.
The Bible is more than a guidebook; it is a living authority that applies to every aspect of our lives. It is through the Scripture that God reveals to us the Gospel, which saves the lost and matures the saved. Because of our high view of the Scriptures,
Jacob’s Well is committed to biblical, expository preaching. As has been true of many Christians throughout history, the Bible is the ultimate authority in forming our theological identity. Furthermore, we affirm the great creeds of the early church and the basics of Reformed theology as found in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
The Gospel Transforms Relationships
There is a relationship and an intimacy between the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit. As image bearers of God, we believe that you too are created for relationship, first and foremost with God, but secondarily with His church.
Loving one another, encouraging one another and bearing one another’s burdens is both a privilege and obligation set forth in scripture. Our desire at Jacob’s Well is to involve everyone in spiritual intimacy through some form of small group or other ministry.
