Developing Devoted Disciples

In three words it explains the commission given by Jesus to the church.  It involves bringing people to the Lord through evangelism and helping them grow in the Word through edification. The mission of Ponderosa Bible Church is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ.

Beliefs & Purpose

Christ's Foundation

We affirm our belief in the one-eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of his will. He has been calling out from the world a people for himself, and sending his people back into the world to be his servants and his witnesses, for the extension of his kingdom, the building up of Christ’s body, and the glory of his name. We confess with shame that we have often denied our calling and failed in our mission, by becoming conformed to the world or by withdrawing from it. Yet we rejoice that even when borne by earthen vessels the gospel is still a precious treasure. To the task of making that treasure known in the power of the Holy Spirit we desire to dedicate ourselves anew. Isa. 40:28; Matt. 28:19; Eph. 1:11

We affirm the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures in their entirety as the only written word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also affirm the power of God’s word to accomplish his purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all men and women. For God’s revelation in Christ and in Scripture is unchangeable. Through it the Holy Spirit still speaks today. He illumines the minds of God’s people in every culture to perceive its truth freshly through their own eyes and thus discloses to the whole Church ever more of the many-colored wisdom of God. (II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21; John 10:35)

We affirm that all men by nature and by choice are sinners, but that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” We believe, therefore, that those who receive Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence, and those who refuse to receive Christ as Savior and Lord will be forever separated from God. Those who receive Christ as Savior are kept by His power eternally. The punishment of unbelievers and the rewards of the righteous are both everlasting and conscious. (Rom. 3:23 John 3:16 II Cor. 5:8 Rev. 20:11-15 John 10:27-28; Rom. 8:38-39)
