"WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT LOVING GOD AND SHARING HIS LOVE AND KINGDOM PRINCIPLES WITH OTHERS"
Hello and welcome to our community, ONE CHURCH! We are a movement committed to being the Love Of God while creating disciples of this love all in a judgment free zone! WE are a group of real people, united in equality on a journey of discovery.We are a nation of Jesus followers, having a deliberate intent to become the expression of His love.
Worship is the pulse of our existence and we feel it’s important to create a free atmosphere where this can take place. You will find that we love Gods word and what he says about things. WE are real people with real issues who serve a God with real answerers to life’s toughest questions. We are not perfect but we know and serve a God who is perfecting us everyday. Let us journey to reclaiming passionate faith, pursuing world change, taking the lonely into community, defending the broken, championing life changing cause, and turning affluence into influence
TAKE A MOMENT AND DREAM WITH US…
a community that dares to dream of a place and time that will mirror God’s desire for heaven on earth. Can you see a community where everyone gets along and have the best interest at heart for their fellow man? Can you imagine life with acceptance and mutual respect? This journey would yield such a sense of belonging and foster so much pride that will love smother injustice and self-righteousness. Can you see it?
a community where living life is the precedence; and the hustle and bustle of life is insignificant; where the pursuit of happiness is on everyone’s mind; without stepping on each other to get there. A future that causes no one else harm in order to satisfy our own personal goals and achievements. Can we have a place where our thoughts are really pure and lovely; where it is not too much to ask for the “good”; nor is it too much to expect it?
a community of people devoted to following Jesus together, learning to live like him and helping one another grow in their relationship with God; where we are gradually transformed to become better people: better friends, better family members, better workers, better neighbors; becoming people who enjoy life to the full and who can also deal with adversity well, learning to grow through failure and suffering.
a community of people that celebrate our differences. A place where real value is placed on your very life and existence; where you are important. Imagine a people who acknowledge the God in you, the victories you’ve won.
a that community scattered throughout the region around Hampstead and Raleigh North Carolina also Allentown, Pennsylvania beyond working as agents of love, peace and hope wherever they are; serving our neighbors, caring for the poor, helping the oppressed.
Imagine some of life’s most challenging questions; where people reach out to assist you as you embark on life’s changes, growth and development. Imagine a place where you can embrace the fullness of who you are; embrace the nations you were created to touch and embrace the ministry, gifts and talents that are within you.
Our MISSION is our PURPOSE (the reason we exist), which is to be and make DISCIPLES. Our HOPE is that everyone at ONE CHURCH will ENGAGE in the process of actively following JESUS and help others do the same.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Salvation by Grace
We believe in salvation by grace. This is a free gift from God, given to all who believe in His Son Jesus, the Christ, and accept Him as the Lord of their life.

Deity of Christ
We believe in the deity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate, and was manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free from sin.
(Isaiah 9:6-7) (John 1:1-14) (John 5:22-23) (John 8:54-58) (John 10:30)
Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Word of God is eternal and unbroken.
(Numbers 23:16-19) (John 1:1-14) (II Timothy 3:15-17)
God exists in Three Persons – The Trinity
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5) (Matthew 28:19-20) (Mark 12:28–31) (I John 5:7)
Virgin Birth of Christ

We believe that Christ is the risen saviour. Jesus rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
(Acts 1:8-11) (Romans 8:31-35)
We believe that all believers should receive water baptism, as a demonstration of our faith, and in obedience to the commandment of our Lord. This act represents a commitment by the believer, and should be accompanied by a renewal and sanctification via the Holy Spirit. Water baptism is an outward symbol of spiritual identification with His death, burial, and resurrection.
