Threshold Ministries exists to help bring people from all walks of life into a living relationship with Jesus Christ and His people.
To be a leading organization in the training, equipping and releasing of Evangelists, and to assist the Church in becoming missional in communicating the Gospel.
As evangelists in Threshold Ministries, we are committed to the following statements that outline our shared belief:
We believe in the Trinity of persons as comprising the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in their diversity of manifestation and their unity of substance as one God.
We believe in the good news of the Kingdom of God - the Creator God who loves his fallen creation and plans to restore it to wholeness through Christ. We call people to celebrate the glorious legacy they have by virtue of being created in God's image, and the potential to be fully alive in Christ, through repentance and faith.
We believe that the divine and incarnate Son Jesus Christ is the highest and ultimate revelation of God and God's will for us. God has, in Christ's atoning and substitutionary sacrifice, reconciled the world to himself. Christ has won, by virtue of his death and resurrection, the ultimate victory over evil and sin. Jesus Christ is he whom we proclaim as Lord over all, in whom all creation will find its fulfillment and wholeness.
We believe in the good news that God transforms lives through the gift of the Holy Spirit who works in the world, through the Church, to bring God's new creation into being, as manifested in faith and in the practice of that faith.
We proclaim this plan of salvation by word and deed as being the means whereby God will bring about the ultimate destiny and consummation of the whole creation, all reconciled in Christ.
We believe that the office of Evangelist is God-ordained. We believe Evangelists are called to exercise the unique role, empowered by the Holy Spirit, of calling people to a first time repentance and faith and, along with Apostles, Prophets, Pastors and Teachers, to disciple Christians, so they may exercise their ministries for the building up of God's kingdom. (Ephesians 4: 11-16)
We are committed to the building of relationships with those to whom we minister the Gospel. We call people to a positive affirmation of who they can be in Christ, facing him as Judge but also as Redeemer, by whose love, grace and mercy is the divine intention for all of humanity.
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the authoritative record of the Word of God, as received by the Church and the historic Creeds. It is to be interpreted in historical and orthodox context, and is directed towards the faith and amendment of life for those guided by the Holy Spirit.
