The DNA of a church is its distinctive and unchangeable characteristics - the code that is expressed in everything a church says and does. At Sacred City Church, our DNA is made up of three things: Gospel, Community, and Mission.
The Gospel is the good news that God has acted in history to conquer evil and reconcile sinners to Himself through the perfect life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Through our union with Christ by faith, we can be restored from our fallen and broken condition into right relationship with God and others. The Gospel transforms not only individuals, but also churches, societies, and culture at large. It is not just a gate we pass through one time, but a path of ongoing renewal and repentance that we are to walk each day of our lives. (Romans 1:16 and 1 Corinthians 1:18-24) We believe the Gospel changes everything!
We are saved by the Trinitarian community - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - for community. God, in the Gospel, saves us not into a life of individualism but into a family - a community of other believers centered on the Gospel. God is our Father who has adopted us by His Spirit to be His sons and daughters, and brothers and sisters to one another through Christ who is the head of His the body - the Church. Therefore, the Church is not just a place or event to attend, but is a distinct and diverse people from all races, ethnicities, ages, and socioeconomic status’s. This diverse people of God is both the best place to come to understand and experience the Gospel and also the best place to display the Gospel to a watching world. (John 17:5, Ephesians 1:5-6, Ephesians 2:13-22, Colossians 1:18, Romans 8:14-17)
Mission is not what we do. It's who we are. We are a community of missionaries to the Quad Cities. We are kingdom bringers. God is not just interested in the salvation of humans, but in the restoration of all of creation to its original “good” (Gen. 1:31; Rom. 8:19-22).
We desire to form disciples of Jesus in and around the gospel. This gospel formation happens in a community that is on mission together. The gospel not only calls us into community and sends us out on mission, but the power of the gospel is the only thing that will keep us in community and on mission. Being in community and on mission reveals our continual need for grace found only in the gospel.
