We exist to help people find and follow Jesus Christ through services that move people, groups that change people, and outreaches that help people.
A Quick History of ONE*
In September of 2006, we officially launched ONE* in Spokane Valley. The name ONE* comes from Ephesians 4:4-6:
“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.“
This has led to where we are now as ONE*:
- Building a vibrant, active community of Christ-followers around our core values.
- Welcoming un-churched and de-churched people to our family and providing a safe and comfortable place to explore faith.
- Providing clear steps for connection that takes out some of the confusion and intimidation that can come from starting fresh in a new church environment.
What We Believe
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that men were moved by the Spirit to write words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error.
God is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are ONE* God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make mankind aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides every Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing what is right, and is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and grow the church. Every Christian should seek to live under His guidance daily.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him and is the supreme object of God’s creation. However, mankind became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, mankind is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Mankind can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin, and he will spend eternity with God.
We believe that every Christian or Christ-follower should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every Christ-follower will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.
