Our Vision

A Local Church Making a Global Impact:
Reaching In to the Body, Reaching Out to the Community, and Reaching Wide to the Nations of the World!

Our Mission

Resurgent Church is a place where every life is considered precious and of immeasurable value, and where every individual, created in the image of God, is offered unconditional love and the hope of redemption that is found only in Jesus Christ. Taking the message of Jesus to the lost and hurting, wherever they may be found, is Resurgent’s mission. As a local church body, Resurgent seeks to be a place where people can find communion with God and community with one another. Connecting people with God and one another are the two primary purposes for which Resurgent exists.

"I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by…”

Habakkuk 3:2 (NLT)

Our Core Values


We exist to foster a passion and environment that is focused on helping others connect to God through corporate worship, making room for the Holy Spirit to move and producing an atmosphere where the sole purpose is giving praise and glory to God alone. We believe that genuine worship is accompanied by liberty and a freedom that only the Spirit of God can bring. God responds to those who worship in spirit and in truth with the manifestation of His presence and power. Worship is both a corporate act and a personal devotion.

Psalms: 86:9-12 “All the nations you have made will come and worship before you Lord, they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds you alone our God. Teach Me Your Way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness give me an undivided heart that I may fear your name. I will praise you Lord my God with all my heart and will glorify your name forever.”


We exist to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19) in the power of the Holy Spirit, reaching the unsaved with the gospel and making followers of Christ. We believe that true and genuine evangelism is relational and lived out in our daily lives through compassion, love, and acts of kindness towards others. We believe being a Missional Church is both a personal and corporate endeavor. Along with personal evangelism, Resurgent Church has made the support of World Missions one of its highest priorities. Resurgent Church strives to be a local church with global impact.


We seek to nurture the individual, couple, and family into a healthy, mature, and fruitful walk with Christ. We desire to see every individual grow in God’s word and apply it to their daily lives. Once the individual becomes a disciple of Christ, they win others to Christ and make disciples.


We seek to advance the Kingdom of God through service and giving. By volunteering our time, gifts, and talents, we radically impact our local church, community, and world for Christ. Every individual has a purpose and a call to serve.


We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit for every believer, given to empower the church for effective evangelism, and in the operation of spiritual gifts for the edifying of the corporate body and individual. We strive to create an atmosphere where people can worship God freely and encounter His divine presence.


We exist to love all people without partiality, to create a place of community where fellowship is commonplace, and where every individual can find purpose and a sense of belonging. At Resurgent Church, we seek to be a church where many diverse individuals come together as one.

What We Believe

The following are the foundational beliefs which encompass the doctrine, teaching, and ministry of
Resurgent Church.

The Bible is the Inspired Word of God
The Bible is THE written Word of God, written by men under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Old and New Testament is the only written revelation from God to man. It is for all people, in every situation. It contains no error. God’s words were relevant then, are still relevant today, and will be forever.
The Bible is the Inspired Word of God
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare:

His virgin birth,
Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31; Luke 1:35

His sinless life, Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22

His miracles, Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38

His substitutionary work on the cross,
1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21

His bodily resurrection from the dead,
Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4

His exaltation to the right hand of God.
Acts 1:9; Acts 1:11; Acts 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1:3
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
Human Kind/ The Fall of Man
Man was created in the image of God. However, by a voluntary act of the will, Adam and Eve disobeyed God. That first sin had several repercussions. Man was excommunicated from the Garden of Eden, a curse was pronounced, the process of physical death began, and man died spiritually. Sin separated humankind from God and left man in a fallen and sinful condition.
Human Kind/ The Fall of Man
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
Water Baptism
The scripture teaches that all who repent and believe in Christ are to be baptized by immersion (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is a public profession of faith in Christ. It is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It is a declaration to the world that we have died to sin and have been raised with Christ to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4).
Water Baptism
Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God.
Romans 12:1,2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12

The Scriptures teach a life of "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord."
Hebrews 12:14

By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: "Be ye holy, for I am holy."
1 Peter 1:15,16

Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by the faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 6:1-11; Romans 6:13; Romans 8:1,2; Romans 8:13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12,13; 1 Peter 1:5
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.(See: Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4, Acts 1:8, Acts 2, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31)
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The Church and its Mission
The church is the body of Christ but is not merely a building. It is a gathering of local believers. The Church is a body of believers working together to fulfill God’s purposes of reaching all people with the Gospel. We are to work together to help each other in love and unity. The church has a three-fold purpose: to evangelize the world (Acts 1:8 + Mark 16:15-16), to worship God (1 Corinthians 12:13), and to equip for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16 + 1 Corinthians 12:28, 14:12). The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin.
The Church and its Mission
The Blessed Hope
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52
The Blessed Hope
The Final Judgment
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:8
The Final Judgment
