We are “Christ-ones”
The term “Christian” (literally “Christ-one”) was originally created as a mocking title to those first century followers of Jesus (Acts 11:26; 26:28). However, and much to the disappointment of those who enjoyed using the designation to scorn them, the title was quickly adopted as a badge of honor by those early followers of Jesus. Like all Christian churches, ARCC is quite simply a local assembly of Christians. As disciples (students) of Jesus, we believe he is who he said he is in the New Testament. His resurrection validates everything he said and did. In Jesus heaven and earth meet and thus the Kingdom of God has invaded this world. Jesus is the King of this world.
The Ultimate Objective of the Church
The ultimate objective of every church, and therefore of ARCC, should be to bring glory to God. Glory is essentially the revelation of God resulting in praise to God. Simply put, God is glorified when He is SEEN and the response is “WOW!” An analogy could be that of the relationship between Walt Disney and Disneyland. In a sense, Disneyland reveals to those who experience Disneyland the “glory” of the person who was Walt Disney. Children of all ages respond with wonder and awe! To carry the analogy a little further, it has taken many people to build, maintain, and develop Disneyland over the years. You could say they played a significant role over the years in revealing the glory of Walt through Disneyland.
