Our Mission and Vision

Training & Equipping Believers to Partner with the Holy Spirit in Bringing the Kingdom of God to the World

Issue & Need

Many Christians and churches lack an essential understanding of the third person of the Trinity. Through media, podcasts, and gatherings, we equip disciples of Christ to receive the Holy Spirit in their lives by examining Scripture and observing how Jesus and His disciples lived. We seek to participate in what God wants to continue doing through His Spirit. (Acts 1:8)

Our Core Values

01

Scripture & Spirit

We believe the Bible is God's living Word, and the Holy Spirit is a real person. Both the Spirit and the Scripture are needed to know God's will, voice, and mind. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Son and the Father, the Trinitarian God who is living and active in the world today...saving, speaking, renewing, guiding, filling, and re-filling those who surrender to Christ. 

03

Discipleship & Spiritual Formation

We long to be sharpened, developed, and deployed to be disciples who make disciples of all nations. Not only the select few, but all who believe are sent as Kingdom priests and missionaries to our families, workplaces, and world. 

02

Fellowship without Walls

We do not let denominational, church, national, political, socio-economic, racial, or any other worldly divisions hinder us from fellowship with those who love the Lord and seek to advance His Kingdom through the power of the Holy Spirit. We fight to break out of silos, echo-chambers, and bubbles that keep us from discernment, truth, and loving as God loves.

04

Prayer & Worship

Prayer & worship is our lifeline. Through these, we learn to rest in God's presence without striving religiously. It's in learning to receive and listen that the Holy Spirit shows us how to pray and hear the words that are on the Father's heart. 

05

Building Holy Spirit Communities

It is not good for anyone to be alone. We need community in order to be a counter-cultural community of faith. We commit to creating spaces to meet like-minded friends and to seek the Holy Spirit's leading, nurture, and unity. 

The Statement of Faith for Fire & Rice is rooted in the revelation of God through the Old and New Testaments. We confess the historic statements given to the Christian Church through the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.  ​

We believe in:

  1. The Trinitarian God:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who is sovereign in creation, providence, revelation, redemption, and final judgment.  (Matthew 28:19, John 20:21; Colossians 1:16)

  2. Scripture:  Both the Old and New Testaments as the absolute authority in all matters of faith, knowledge of God, and how we are to live.  (1 Peter 3:16; 2 Tim. 3:16)

  3. Sin and the Savior:  All human beings are universally cursed by sin and thus, separated from God and needing a Savior in order to experience salvation.  (Romans 3:23)

  4. The Cross:  Because of His love, God has provided the ultimate sacrifice through the death of the incarnate Son.  This is the only means by which salvation can be found. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:16)

  5. Faith:  Through faith in Christ’s work on the cross and His resurrection, all people can experience redemption, eternal life, and a personal relationship with God. (Romans 5:1) 

  6. The Holy Spirit:  The Spirit of the Father, and the Son that speaks, guides, loves, leads, and sanctifies those with saving faith.    (John 14:25, John 20:21)

  7. Unity of the Church:  Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, although full of diversity and differences, the church of Jesus Christ is one body under His headship.  (Ephesians 4:5)

  8. The Return:  The Lord Jesus Christ is expected to return again, of which those who believe await the second coming.  (Matthew 24:42; Revelation 22:12)
