Who We Are
Founded in 1993, Seminole Community Church was originally started as a church for those who weren’t even looking for a church but would entertain the idea of going to a place where they could just be themselves. Because of this, we’ve always had a “come as you are” attitude which has translated into a more casual atmosphere where attenders can immediately feel at home, comfortable and accepted.
Today, Seminole Church still has that same feel. Since we believe whole-heartedly that God is Love, we take seriously the idea that people will recognize us as Christ-followers by the way that we treat each other. We value worshiping together in a spirit love and unity, striving to be a reflection of His love and an extension of His inclusiveness.
And because we believe that, above all, God wants to reach out and connect with people in very real ways, we make it our focus to foster a supportive community that points people to Him, a God who not only loves them but has meaningful purpose for their lives. Our hope at SCC is that individuals will find it to be a safe place where they can not only find practical encouragement for every day living and great friends for life, but a place where they can ultimately find true meaning and hope for eternity.
Biblical Authority – We Believe God has spoken to us through the Scriptures. Therefore, the Bible is our ultimate authority.
Intimacy with God – We believe God desires an intimate relationship with every believer. Through prayer, meditation, worship, and Bible study, we can pursue and achieve intimacy with the Father.
Relevant Environments – We believe our role is to create environments that are conducive to the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of people. A relevant environment combined with competent leadership will allow us to connect with our audience.
Relational Evangelism – We believe that all believers have the responsibility of carrying out the great commission in their sphere of influence.
Authentic Community – We believe accountability, care, and a sense of belonging are critical to balance and progress in our spiritual journey. These three things are best achieved within the context of a small group of like-minded, relationally-connected believers.
Strategic Service – As gifted members of the body of Christ, each believer is responsible for exercising his or her gifts in tandem with other members of the body. It is not enough to exercise spiritual gifts. Maximum impact is contingent upon a coordinated, strategic exercise of gifts in the body.
Intentional Apprenticing – We believe that every believer is responsible for passing along to others the knowledge, skills, and opportunities for service that God, through others entrusted to them.
