1042 Core ValuesBack

 

Chapter 10, verse 42 only occurs in the New Testament in these five books: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts. When we were praying about this church plant in Frisco, God brought to mind John 10:42 that speaks of a "place where many believed in Jesus." We want this church plant, wherever the location of the people, to be a place where people believe in Jesus. Not just a one time belief in Christ, but an ongoing depth of belief and love for Christ. It was then that God led me to Acts 10:42 which speaks of Christ as the exalted Lord of the "living and the dead." From that point, my wife and I searched the Scriptures to see what other chapter 10 and verse 42 Scriptures had to say. This led us to Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Therefore, these 10:42 Scriptures in the New Testament are the Five Core Values of our church that we seek to embody in the life and breath of everything we do. In short, we are 1042.

What We Believe

We believe in

 

One God, Creator of heaven and earth, existing in three eternally distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equally share all the divine attributes. Although all are equally God in essence, there are different roles within the Godhead. The Father begets the Son and the Son is begotten of the Father. The Son eternally submits to the Father and the Spirit eternally brings glory to the Son. The Spirit eternally proceeds from the Father and the Son.

 

God the Father, unbegotten, source of all things in heaven and on earth, majestic, the one who sits on the throne. God the Father loves the world of ungodly sinners and sent the Son to die on a cross for sinners and thus to reconcile the world to Himself.

 

Jesus Christ; God the Son in the flesh, His pre-existence, His incarnation, His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His suffering, His substitutionary and propitiatory death on a cross; His triumphant descent into the underworld, His bodily resurrection; His ascension and exaltation to the right hand of the Father; and His bodily return at the consummation of all things to judge the living and the dead.

 

God the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the living water, the parakletos, who spoke in the law and the prophets and the Gospel; the uncreated and the perfect. The Holy Spirit quickens the soul of the dead sinner and brings them to life. The Spirit indwells all believers in Jesus Christ and thus enables and empowers the life and ministry of all believers. The Holy Spirit begins the process of making the believer holy at salvation and continues this process until the glorification of the believer. 

 

The depravity of Man since the fall of Adam and Eve, Man was created by and for God to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever; however, after disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which will ultimately lead all sinners to the Lake of Fire to experience eternal torment, along with the Devil and his angels, day and night for ever and ever. As a consequence of the fall, man also incurred physical death. All people are sinners by nature and practice. All humans are still made in the image of God, but that image has been marred by sin and will only be restored by trusting in Christ in order to be conformed to the perfect image of God's Son.

 

The Bible, the inspired Word of God (God-breathed), 66 books, and without mistakes as written in the original manuscripts. It is the complete revelation of God's will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life. "What page—even sentence—of the inspired Old and New Testaments is there that is not an excellent rule of life?" Rule of Saint Benedict, 73

 

One Apostolic and Holy Church, one baptism, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, and the bodily resurrection of everyone who has ever lived, the just and the unjust. Thus the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, the kingdom of heaven and life everlasting in the New Jerusalem; and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son.

We believe that Christ has called His church to be outwardly focused and not inwardly focused. From the beginning we felt God call us to strategically give 50% of the income donated to the Church and we faithfully continue to do so. This principle is one of our key distinctives and essential to the very heart of who we are as a church. When you give of your finances to 1042 you can trust that half of it will be used for missions (local and abroad). We are completely open concerning our finances. If you have any questions about the finances of our church please contact Justin Bass or Tim Maas.

 

Visit the 1042 Missions Page to see the missions we support locally and abroad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


 

Covenant with 1042

 

Back

 

We want you to make an informed decision about becoming a Covenant member of 1042. The first step is making sure you agree with our doctrinal statement and mission of 1042 and then by meeting one-on-one over coffee. In this meeting we will cover what it means to serve as a 1042 Covenant Member and our beliefs and distinctives. We will also discuss the three 1042 Essentials packets that all Covenant Members will walk through over the years being apart of 1042. These packets are on Church History & Doctrine, Apologetics, and Spiritual Life. We believe that Covenant members should know or at least be in the process of learning many of the Essentials of the Christian faith.

 

We hope that, as the Lord leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family. Please contact Pastor Justin to learn more.

We believe baptism is specifically for those who have consciously trusted in Christ. Therefore, we do not baptize infants or children below a certain age of understanding. Every person who is baptized in the New Testament was baptized after they consciously trusted in Christ. We are in no way dogmatic on this issue and we greatly respect many strong believers throughout Church History who engage in infant baptism. Paul says, "Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind" (Rom 14:5) and we at 1042 Church are fully convinced of Believer's baptism. We also baptize a believer according to the Lord's command: in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt 28:19).

 

 

Water baptism symbolizes a person's new birth in Christ as the baptismal candidate should have been baptized by the Holy Spirit before the water baptism (Acts 10:44-48). While many forms of baptism are acceptable (see Didache 7:1-4), we prefer immersion into the water because it is a vivid picture of the death, burial and resurrection of the believer in Christ (Rom 6:4).

 

Following baptism, 1042 engages in something unique in our day, but was the normal practice of the 2nd Century church (see Tertullian, Spect. 4; Hippolytus, Apostolic Tradition 21). Once the believer rises from the water to new life the first thing they experience is the taste of Milk and Honey which is a symbol of participating in God's new creation. This reminds the believer that (s)he has been adopted into the family of God "into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade" (1 Pet 1:4)
