THE BIBLE guideS EVERYTHING WE DO

Tribe Church has set Christ and the Word of God as its foundation. We want to be like Jesus, only doing and saying what we see and hear our heavenly Father doing (John 5:19, John 12:49-50). If something isn't consistent with the Bible and/or doesn't reflect the heart and mind of Christ, we don't do it, teach it, or support it.

Tribe Church believes that the Bible in its original language and form is the perfect and intentional communication of God. We recognize that human tradition, prejudices, and errors have occasionally clouded that message in english translation and Christian application. We strive to study, teach, and practice the Bible using proper exegesis, sound discernment, careful meditation, and instruction from the Holy Spirit (John 14:26).

We believe that the Bible and its wisdom, as well as the knowledge of God which it communicates, is the inheritance of all believers. Special knowledge or access is not reserved for the few or the elite, but is accessible for all Christ followers through diligent study and revelation from the Holy Spirit.

 

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT LEADS EVERYTHING WE DO

At Tribe Church, we believe that The Holy Spirit is the key to the Christian life.

The Holy Spirit teaches us (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit guides us (John 16:13-15). The Holy Spirit gives us the words to say (Luke 12:12). The Holy Spirit gives us boldness (Acts 4:31). And we are meant to live a life completely led by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:1-17).

This also means that we accept, receive, pursue, and practice the gifts of the Spirit as described in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 and Romans 12:6-8. These gifts are also the inheritance of all followers of Christ through the Holy Spirit. God gives every believer at least one gift that is both powerful and absolutely necessary within the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12).

 

COMMUNITY POWERS EVERYTHING WE DO

TRIBE [noun]: a division within a traditional system consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and belief system.

The Bible is, first and foremost, a story about relationship and community. We were in relationship with God in the beginning, sin destroyed the relationship, and everything God did from that point was part of His work to restore that relationship. And He chose to do that through community.

The community of the Hebrews, the 12 tribes of Israel, Jesus and the 12 disciples, the communities of the early church - God has always moved and worked within the context of relationship. At Tribe Church, we try to follow His lead.

Community is both the power that moves us and the need that drives us. Community provides the safety, security, support, and investment that is necessary for each of us to grow. But what are we growing into? We desire to grow into people who can meet both the spiritual and the felt needs of our communities.
