Church Information


Mission

To encourage the families of Huntington Green to have a relationship with Jesus Christ that enables them to reach their full God-given potential.  

  

Bible Foundation:

2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone and the new is here!”



Statement of Faith and Values

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. 

We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. 

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of people; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ; 

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and person, and His visible return to earth. 

We believe that: 

  • All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. 

  • People are more important than programs, and grace is more important than rules.

  • Application of biblical principles is more important than knowledge of biblical facts. 

  • God will multiply even the smallest efforts designed to honor Him as it fits His will.

  • Gratitude and appreciation must be expressed for every donation, gift, and volunteer hour received.

*Notice - Every Caterpillar Ministries volunteer who has direct contact with our program participants MUST have a completed background check on file.

The cost of running the motor vehicle record check and background check will be paid by the ministry.
