"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The doctrinal position of Go for God Family Church is summarized in our eight-article Statement of Faith.   (Adopted on February 7, 2009)


We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, sovereign, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Bible

We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged.

The Human Condition

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man. Jesus, Israel’s promised Messiah, was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified on a cross, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

The Work of Christ

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.  He convicts the world of its and regenerates the believing sinner.  He also indwells, illuminates, guides, and equips believers for Christ-like living.guilt,
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is the promise of the Father, and His accompanying gifts and fruit, which empower the believer for the building of His Church and the establishment of His Kingdom.

The Church

We believe that the true Church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head.
We believe that water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.


We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
We believe in the personal and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this "Blessed Hope" has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
We believe the coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.
