Five Pillars of Our Church

Nothing of eternal value happens without prayer. We know that the mission we have is bigger than us
and we need God's power to accomplish it.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to grow in our faith.  This requires growing in our knowledge of God
and his Word and in our practice of living it out in our daily lives.


We want God's will God's way, so we listen for His direction. This impacts how we learn,
how we teach, how we worship, and how we serve at Englewood.


God works in the world through his people, the Church. It takes everyone doing his or her part. We believe that
God has a specific way that He wants to use each individual. We encourage everyone to get involved.


We give because we have been given so much in Christ. Generosity comes out of a changed heart.
It changes how we use our time, our money, our resources, and our talents to fulfill God's purposes for His Church.

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Englewood Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy.

Jesus Christ

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself. 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. Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
Sin entered the world through mankind's disobedience to God, causing them to fall out of fellowship with God, becoming distorted images of God. and fracture all of creation ever since that time.


By grace, God 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.  We are made new in Christ.


By His grace and through the work of the Spirit in partnership
with our obedience, God transforms us into the image of Christ.
We develop the character of Christ, and our hearts increasingly
desire to know God and to glorify God.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God, proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and be a redemptive presence in the world.
