Our Philosophy of Ministry:

We strive for church health by structuring our ministry forms to facilitate the following functions from Acts 2:42-47:

  • Learning experiences with the Word (“the apostles’ teaching”)
  • Relational experiences with other believers (“fellowship” including the elements of praying, eating, sharing, and praising)
  • Witnessing experiences with the world (“enjoying the favor of all the people”)

The objective of Keystone Bible is church health, not church growth. However, a vital or healthy church is marked by spiritual vitality, functional effectiveness, and statistical growth in its life and ministry. Therefore, we will seek to be a healthy church and will expect to grow as a result.

With these objectives in mind, we purpose to be in a constant state of evaluation as we strive to be a healthy church that glorifies God.  It is our belief that the following are vital signs of a healthy church and serve as helpful evaluation points for our leadership:

Vital signs of a healthy church:

  • Gospel Driven
  • Vision Motivated
  • Authentic Worship
  • Effective Expositional Preaching
  • Servant Leadership
  • Dynamic Discipleship
  • Intercessory Prayer

We also believe that there are obstacles to church health and we purpose to guard against them.  Some of these include:

  • Reaction to the abuses of numerical growth
  • Defending the status quo
  • Traditionalism
  • Mixed agendas
  • Irresponsibility
  • Unnecessary barriers
  • Confusing form and function
  • Imbalance
