To align ourselves with the Word of God
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, written by men on His behalf. It’s central theme is Jesus Christ.
Luke 24:27 (NIV) says: “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He (Jesus) explained to them (men) what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.” The Bible is without error, complete, and the final authority. It should be the foundation of our life and decisions.
To be culturally relevant
We do not live in a bubble, and we are not immune to the trials of the world. In light of this, we are committed to meeting people where they are. We understand the issues people face today because we are living in the same world. Our desire is to reach individuals, then equip them to live a full, Godly life.
1 Corinthians 9:12 (NASB): “The the weak I become weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.”
To be a vibrant church
Though not officially a “community “ church, PittNaz is composed of people from a variety of denominational, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. This diversity strengthens and equips us to connect with and better serve our community.
Act 2:42 (NIV): “The devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was lied with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
