YOKE Core Values:

Statement of Faith:

  • We believe that there is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Philippians 2:6; 1 Peter 1:2)

  • We believe that Jesus is the only hope for mankind. He is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary. He died to take the punishment for the sin of mankind, and was raised from the dead. By receiving Him as Lord, mankind is redeemed and restored to a right relationship with God. We believe that Jesus will one day return in person to earth in power and glory. (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5 and 14, 14:6-7; 1 Corinthians 15-3-4, Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:13-22)

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit comes into those who have received Christ, enabling and empowering them to live by Christ’s example as they participate in God’s mission on earth. (John 14:16-17, 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Ephesians 1:13)

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative source of Christian faith and practice. (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

  • We believe that every human is created in the image of God, but because of sin is separated from God, lost and powerless to save themselves. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:10-18, 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:1-5)

  • We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and is made up of all those who have accepted him and follow him through the direction and power of the Holy Spirit. The mission of the Church, as stated in Matthew 28, is to make disciples of all nations. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:4; Hebrews 12:23; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:8)

“YOKE began as a requirement for school. I approached it more as an assignment, but I very quickly fell in love with the ministry and it has become something that I am very passionate about. YOKE has changed my life!”
