We are a community of people dedicated to walking in faith and growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ. All Nations Community Church (ANCC) is committed to helping others encounter God through Sunday gatherings, finding community in life groups and caring for one another and our world in Jesus’ name. ANCC in Bellevue was founded in September of 2011 and are currently meeting at Newport High School on Sundays at 10:30am. We understand that every Sunday can be someone’s first and last Sunday, so our worship time is structured to focus on God’s word, practical application and helping people feel welcomed.
All Nations Community Church exists to guide people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our Convictions and Beliefs
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons-the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
About Jesus Christ
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 the 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.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His guidance every day.
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors , under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without and mixture of error.
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or by good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one received Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This “sin” separates man from God.
Governance & Staff
We believe that Christ has vested the authority of His Church not in a hierarchy of professionals, but in the members of the local congregation itself, especially as they are represented in a local body of elders(leaders) whom we elect.
The congregation of ANCC governs through an elected committee structure led by a Leadership Council (in lieu of an Elder Board) that is responsible for the overall spiritual welfare and management of the church in accordance with the Bylaws. The Leadership Council (LC) is comprised of 7 members currently. 1 LC chair, 5 LC members and 1 Senior Pastor. All have equal voting rights.
Board of Trustees
Is comprised of 3 members and 1 representative from the LC. The BOT oversees the business and finance side of the church and its facilities. Duties include general accounting, reimbursements and financial budgeting for the church. All decisions with financial implications have to be vetted by the BOT. The BOT reports to the LC on a quarterly basis or as urgent needs arise.
Currently we have 3 staff members. Associate Pastor, Children’s Ministry Director and Sunday Worship Director/Admin. In addition to a vacant Senior Pastor position, we are also looking to add a Youth/College Pastor to fill the needs of our Church.
