Finley Ministries

   We believe and confess that Christ alone is head of the Church giving the Church its faith and life, its unity and mission, and its officers and ordinances.  Through our Lord Jesus Christ, the Church is called into being and given all that is necessary for its mission to the world, for its building up, and for its service to God.  Through our ministry together, we strive to uphold Christ's call to all of us through the six Great Ends of the Church, which are:

  • the proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind

  • the shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God

  • the maintenance of divine worship

  • the preservation of the truth

  • the promotion of social righteousness

  • and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.
