Core Values

Learn what makes Simple Church. . . Simple Church

We were created for connection. Groups are small groups of people who meet in homes regularly to grow in life together, to encourage one another as it says in Hebrews 10:24-25. We want to see you belong in life-giving community, not just on Sunday mornings, where you can be authentic & vulnerable to discover healing & develop friendships.

 

To get registered for Groups, text GROUP to 515-500-2959.

We are encouraged to live a life that reflects the love Jesus has for us, but how do we do that? Building habits in our lives that Jesus practiced is the best way to start. None of which is meant to be legalistic or constricting. That was not the way of Christ. 

 

He was never in a rush. Unhurried.

He spent a lot of time in Community as well as practicing Hospitality.

He spent a lot of time alone in Silence & Solitude and in Prayer.

He Fasted regularly.

He spent a lot of time reading the Scriptures and at synagogue.

He took part in Sabbath.

He lived Simply.

 

If you want to experience the life of Jesus, you have to adopt the lifestyle of Jesus.

 

These habits give you the freedom to not only love like Christ but to delight in the freedom of a different way of living like Christ. (Romans 8:1-2)

You’re a one-of-a-kind creation. But what did God create you to do? How will God use you? 1 Peter 4:10 says we have each received spiritual gifts from God's great variety, but it's not enough to just know your gifts. You need to put them into action as it says in Ephesians 4:11-12.

 

-We serve when we see a need and have the ability to meet it

-We serve by taking the need to Jesus and doing as he says

-We serve because it blesses others and glorifies God

 

But there is one final piece we need to remember that we forget far to often and that is "Who We Serve."
The King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the name above all names, Jesus, who said I have come to serve, not to be served (Matthew 20:28 / Mark 10:45)

 

So let’s discover your purpose, together.

What does it mean to “bless”?  Hebrew “barak” & New Testament “eulogeo” & both words have the same general meaning -- “to enrich – to add to that which is already good to make it even better."

 

Every person you lay eyes on is loved, valued, & designed by God & we are to enrich all of that, in every person, in our world.

 

"May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." Romans 15:5-7

 

2 Corinthians 9:7-8 also states that God loves a person who gives cheerfully. How blessed are we that we get the opportunity to bless others while showing the love of Christ. At Simple Church there is no fear. Due to the generosity of the Simple Church community we have been able to help many people in not only our Simple Church family but our community as well!

Growing in our faith is not merely for our benefit but so that we can also share it with the rest of the world, as mentioned in Matthew 28:19-20. We are advancing God's Kingdom by sharing the Gospel, practicing hospitality, and fighting the world, the flesh, and the Devil which is so perfectly stated in Hebrews 12:1.
