How We Operate

At Mass Impact Church we are particular about how we operate.  We are mutually accountable to each other. We regularly to pray, share and plan. Each Mass Impacter is encouraged to closely knit together with like-minded (and not-so-like-minded) believers.  Our aim is to become and to be family to each other – a spiritual family joined together with a common blood-line, that of our Lord Jesus Christ!  We seek to treat each other with love and respect. 

While our Lord accepts us the way we are, He loves us too much to leave us the way He finds us.  In the same way we practice love that values accountability by spurring each other on to spiritual growth (Hebrews 10:24) so that we are all growing up together into our Lord’s likeness.  There are some who are passing through a season in life where they want to blend in and be hidden in a crowd, and seek churches where that may be possible.  At Mass Impact we believe that life is best lived together, and we will gently but persistently encourage sharing in one another’s life experience so that together we bear each other’s burdens (Galatians 6:2) and partake of each other's triumphs.

Our services are easy-going and not overly regimented. Our worship is simple and heart-felt.  We de-emphasize externals (flashy media, for example) without being stuck in the caveman era.  We focus on dealing with the common human problem of sin.  Our preaching and teaching formats all hone in on the Gospel - a Gospel that deals with eternal change and not merely the present life. 


We emphasize spiritual growth and discourage spiritual “coasting”.  We believe that one’s faith is shown in action (James 2:18).  We encourage consistency in the Christian walk, knowing that regular face-to-face fellowship with each other in church (Hebrews 10:25) is a crucial component of the expressed Body of Christ.   We gather, we share, we love and we live – together for God’s glory. You are certain to feel loved and accepted when you visit Mass Impact Church.


Our love is not merely the result of our church culture. The way we love is really an outgrowth of what we know Christ has done for us, enabling us to do for others. We welcome you to join in!

JESUS – Living to know Him and to make Him known.

  • WE BELIEVE a final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a lake of fire. Believers will be judged for their thoughts, words and deeds, and given due reward.  They will inhabit the New Heavens and New Earth that Christ is preparing, and will live and dwell with Him there forever with the Lord.
 
  • WE BELIEVE that the Holy Bible (Scripture) is inspired by God, and is without error in any way.


  • WE BELIEVE there is only One True God – revealed in three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (doctrine of the Trinity), and in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's Incarnate Son, Jesus was both human and divine.


  • WE BELIEVE that though originally created good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin – ushering into the word evil and death, both physical and spiritual.  However, Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation' (trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior). 


  • WE BELIEVE and practice two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.


  • WE BELIEVE the Baptism in the Holy Spirit can be a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service. Often the Baptism is accompanied by The Physical Evidence of ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout the Book of Acts and the Epistles.

  • WE BELIEVE Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil (pursuing holiness), and becoming more like Christ.


  • WE BELIEVE  in the mission of the Church - to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is both universal and local, and consists of those who have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. Biblical Leadership Serves the Church. Each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship corporately, to build up the body of believers, and  meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.


  • WE BELIEVE that divine Healing of the Sickis a privilege for Christians Today and is provided for in Christ's atonement on the Cross.


  • WE BELIEVE in the millennial reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. 


  • The end will be The Blessed Hope, when Jesus raptures His church prior to His return to Earth. At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air along with believers.
