Our mission is to evangelize the lost and disciple the converted of the town of Elmont and neighboring communities by building a church of image-bearing, Christ followers that live for God inside and out. Our vision is to do this with compassionate outreach, scriptural teaching and preaching that is both relevant and apostolic in doctrine, and by infusing a culture of community into our church DNA that invites people to participate in the Kingdom of God and equips them to live whole-heartedly for Christ day by day. Our church will be the hub of our gatherings but our intention is to let the influence of our ministry be felt in every crevice of our community. People who visit and attend The Sanctuary will see an inclusive culture and will feel like they are a part of a community of believers that live out their faith with the support of those in a spiritual cadre with events, gatherings, discipleship groups and ministries that foster cohesion.

About The Bible
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)

About God
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)

About Sin and Salvation
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)

About The Gospel
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)

Fundamental Doctrine
We believe in the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance. (See Acts 2:3-4, 2:38, 10:45-47, 19:1-7, Mark 16:7)

About Christian Living
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)
