CFTN exists to help every person discover the divine destiny God has prepared for their life. Vision is everything. It’s the difference between success or failure, joy or sadness, accomplishment or confusion. God has a plan and purpose for every person and with the help of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, we are committed as a church to help people discover God’s dream for their life.
WORD OF GOD
Every value, belief and practice we have as a church is based on the teaching of the eternal truth of God’s Word. In every service and outreach ministry the proclamation of the Word of God is our greatest priority. Our desire is to see every member of CFTN become a student and disciple of God’s Word in their daily lives. Through our many ministries and resources the Word of God remains the primary tool that we use in which to Reach, Train, and Send.
Prayer is a two-way conversation with God. It is the main way by which we communicate and have a relationship with our loving God. Prayer produces power and much prayer equates to much power (and vice versa). God designed prayer to be a great blessing and benefit to all who practice it. God does nothing on this planet without first being invited to through prayer. Prayer brings God’s peace, power, joy and love into our lives. God hears and answers prayer. Prayer changes history. Prayer produces healing, salvation and a multitude of miracles. CFTN is a house of prayer for all nations.
Because we have been captured by God’s love, through Jesus Christ, we are compelled to share and show His love to all people and nations. God loves this world so much He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to live, suffer and die for our salvation. Jesus said that if we “love one another as He has loved us”, that then the world would know that we’re His disciples. We exist as a church to love God, love each other and love the world. We are committed to show our love for our city by demonstrating tangible attitudes and actions of care for people’s needs. We refuse to do nothing about the needs of this world. We will never cease to reach out to the lost, least and last with the love and Kingdom of God. God is love and we are never more like God than when we love others.
Our motto is to pray and obey. We hold obedience to God’s will and word as the ultimate expression of maturity for all believers. When we obey God by serving and giving to others, we are exhibiting true Christ-likeness. We believe there are only two times to obey God, when it’s easy or when it’s hard! By serving and giving to others we find the place of greatest personal fulfillment and satisfaction, because it is truly more blessed to give than to receive! We believe that when we are obedient to God’s will and word, God takes great pleasure and receives our obedience as love and worship.
