WHO WE ARE
In His Image Evangelical Ministries was founded in 1989 by Dennis Thompson.
Now in our third decade, the church flourishes with a strong spiritual vitality, enriched by programs of fellowship, music, Christian Education and outreach.
The purpose of the church is to glorify God by walking in the Spirit which produces disciples who are involved in:
Worship: Worship and Praising God in Spirit and in truth.
Edification: For the perfection of the saints, for the work of the ministry, edifying the body of Christ.
Evangelism: Reaching out to those who are lost and in need.
Fellowship: Physical and spiritual interaction with others.
God's purpose for you is to do more than just exist. In His Image has a place where you can get involved, invest in the lives of others, and make your life so much more than just average!
The ministries at In His Image are designed to enrich and equip your life. Through a variety of Bible study groups and unique ministry organizations, there's a place for you to experience personal and spiritual growth.
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the revelation of God to mankind, is verbally and fully inspired by Him, is sufficient for the knowledge of God and His will that is necessary for the eternal welfare of mankind, is infallible and inerrant in its original manuscripts, and is the supreme and final authority for all Christian faith and conduct.
We believe that there is but one God, whose essential nature is that of a living, personal Spirit. He is infinitely perfect in all of His attributes, He is the creator and sustainer of all things, and He exists in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man; that is, He is fully divine and also fully human. He preexisted eternally with the Father, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, lived a perfect life and died a substitutionary death for the sins of mankind. We believe that He arose bodily from the grave, that He ascended to heaven, where He is presently High Priest and Advocate for His people, and that He will return personally and bodily to the earth at the close of this age. He is the world's only Savior and is the Lord of all.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, the third Person of the Trinity. We believe that He was sent from the Father by the Son to convict the world, to regenerate and indwell those who trust in Christ, to baptize them into the Body of Christ, to seal them for the final day of redemption, to guide them into truth, to fill them for a life of holiness and victory and to empower them for witness and service. We believe that He gives spiritual gifts to believers for the proper functioning of the Body of Christ, which is the Church.
We believe that a person is saved by God's grace alone, made possible through the shed blood of Christ, whereby He died a substitutionary death for mankind, and through the Resurrection of Christ. Salvation becomes effective when a person, by an act of faith, acknowledges Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord. The benefits of this salvation include the forgiveness of sins and a new standing before God, the impartation of new life and all the privileges that accompany a new family relationship with God. The assurance of salvation as a present possession is the privilege of every believer in Christ.
