"Battling complacency in the Christian life through the transformative power of knowing God more, loving Him deeper, and trusting Him more fully."
Christin Hunt is a graduate of The Master's College, where she studied Bible and Vocal Performance. She is a singer/songwriter, author, speaker, teacher, and amateur theologian. She leads worship for women's gatherings and special events and enjoys seeing how the gospel touches every aspect of life and living.
Her goal is to fight complacency within the Christian life, and she seeks to do so through infusing women with an enthusiasm to know God more. Christin lives in Northern California with her Music Minister husband, where they homeschool their three children and seek to reflect Jesus while enjoying the chaos and craziness of everyday life.
Jason and Christin met in a Music Theory class in college, and bonded over concerts and disc golf. After getting married right out of college, and moving 10 times in 11 years they are happily settled about an hour North of Sacramento for as long as Jesus deems to keep them planted them in the area. Currently homeschooling 1st grade, 4th grade, and a Jr. Higher (!), the family stays busy applying the gospel to education and life skills.
What We Believe
Our Doctrinal Statement contains what we believe to be the core tenants of Christianity on which we will not compromise.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). The whole Bible, including both Old and New Testaments, is inerrant and infallible in its original documents. The Bible is the divine standard, and is sufficient for all matters of doctrine, faith, practice, and godliness (Psalm 19:7-2; 2 Peter 1:3).
We believe there is one God (Isaiah 44:5-8). He is perfect and infinite in all His attributes. He is Lord of the universe, having created it by the power of the word of His mouth alone, apart from any natural processes, and He is Lord over mankind, having created us in His image (Genesis 1:27). Within the nature of the one true God are three distinct Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three Persons are co-equal and co-eternal (Acts 5:3-4; Hebrews 1:8).
We believe that Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, and He lived a sinless life. We believe that He was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and that He was raised bodily from the dead on the third day (John 1:1; 2 Peter 1:1).
We believe that salvation is by God’s grace alone, apart from any works of man (Ephesians 2:8-9). God’s only provision for salvation is the atoning death of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12). Saving faith is not only an intellectual assent to the facts of the gospel, but a heart commitment to willingly trust, submit to, and obey the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:36). We believe once a person is saved, that salvation can never be lost or rejected (Romans 8:38-39).
We believe the church (universal) consists of all persons who have trusted in Jesus Christ for salvation, and each local body consists of believers who are together for worship, fellowship, teaching, evangelizing, and exercising spiritual gifts (Acts 2:42, 47; Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25).
We believe the Biblical ordinance (command) for the believer is communion. Communion is an act of obedience where we remember the sacrifice of Christ and anticipate the glories of His kingdom to come (1 Corinthians 11:24-25).
We believe in the personal, premillennial and imminent return of Jesus Christ. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting glory, and the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:31-46).
We believe that women have been esteemed and honored with the opportunity to submit under the headship of godly men. Her role of teacher and instructor and counselor is a privileged position, sheltered under the shepherding of her husband and pastor. A woman is biblically shielded from the responsibility of shepherding the souls of men, and must thus avoid opportunities to control the spiritual guidance of men.
We believe marriage is a God-ordained institution between one man and one woman, and that God's perfect design is for all sexual interactions to remain within that bond.
We believe that baptism is not an ordinance, but is greatly encouraged. Baptism is an act of a believer in which they make a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6). We view baptism as natural outpouring of a transformed heart, though the only command regarding baptism is that which is given to Christians to baptize others. (Matt 28:19) Thus we view the commission of baptism not for the passive participant, but for the mature Christian in their encouragement of younger believers.
