God exists and has revealed Himself to mankind. He has rescued and redeemed a people for Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ. This good news is to be preached to all nations for God’s glory and our joy.

From its inception, the Church has always found it helpful to summarize its core convictions in rather short and succinct statements such as hymns, creeds and confessions to impart truth, clarify and prevent confusion, protect from false teaching and otherwise hold fast to the historic landmarks of our heritage..

At MOTE, we have three distinct but complementary statements summarizing our beliefs to varying degrees of comprehensiveness:

Statement of Basic Beliefs

This statement represents the most simple and foundational beliefs of Christian orthodoxy from a biblical and historical perspective. It captures the basic contours of Christian theology.

Statement of Theological Distinctives

This statement captures our convictions on areas that are debated even among Bible-believing, gospel-centered churches and para church organizations. Though agreement with this statement isn’t necessary for collaboration, MOTE Founder and its Board of Directors and all in leadership roles will preach, teach and counsel on the basis of these distinctives.

Statement of Biblical Doctrine

This statement represents a full summary of the various convictions articulated in the other statements.

Together, these statements communicate what we believe as a church and will therefore be foundational for our teaching, preaching, praying, instructing, disciplining and counseling.
