Pinnacle doesn’t claim anything unique in our statement of faith. These core beliefs are the very ones that the first church believed as they expanded from Jerusalem throughout the world. We don’t have time to go into detail, but you will see these core beliefs reflected in our teaching and in the character of our community. If you have any questions about our core faith beliefs don’t hesitate to contact our Pastoral Team: Kurt Oheim, Justin Roberts, or Andy Forman.
The Church doesn’t just exist to get people into heaven but also to train and equip them so that they are complete in Christ and able to live for Him here on Earth. The Church is the hope of the world as it points everyone to Jesus by loving like Jesus loves, by serving like Jesus serves, by sacrificing like Jesus sacrifices, and by forgiving like Jesus forgives! (Matthew 16:18; Acts 4:32-37; Acts 9:31; 1 Corinthians 1:10)
