We are passionate about seeing people connect with God in a real way through a relationship with Jesus Christ
Elevate Church is a Bible-teaching church that gives practical principles for daily living. We love to see God's plan unfold for people of all ages and all walks of life. We see a church that will go beyond our four walls to nurture and remind people of God's love for them and encourage them to do the same for others.
Having had his life radically changed by God, Pastor Mauricio Ruiz has dedicated his life to serve Him no matter the cost. His life carries a message of hope and faith, and his greatest joy is seeing people encounter God just as he did.
Pastor Virginia Ruiz is passionate to see a generation of men and women rise and be loved back into wholeness by the Father because that is exactly what happened to her. With her teachings, she continues to inspire countless individuals to know God in a real way.
It dares you to see things differently.
The Bible alone dictates what we believe and practice. The Word is our standard.
Whatever it takes.
We passionately love God, love people, and love to serve because everyone matters.
Everyone matters, especially family.
Beyond being human God spoke us into existence by a word – “family." The impact of family can be the best example to our society that family life was God’s big idea.
Jesus remains, but methods change.
To be an effective Church, we must be culturally relevant to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
WE is better than ME.
Team collaboration brings better results to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To accomplish this, our greatest partnership is the Holy Spirit, who ignites every spiritual gift that comes from above.
We believe in the virgin birth and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and died for our sins. His life was the perfect sacrifice for the atonement of our sins.
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is divinely inspired, infallible, and fully authoritative. It is the final source for how to live life and what to believe.
We believe in one eternal God, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 13:14
2 Timothy 3:16-17
2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe that we have all sinned and are in need of forgiveness. This forgiveness became available to us through the blood that Jesus shed for us.
We believe that to receive forgiveness and to be “born again,” we must repent, confess our sins to God, believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and, in doing so, we receive eternal life.
We believe that healing is provided by Christ’s redemptive work on the cross.
1 Peter 2:24
2 Peter 3:9
1 John 1:9
Death Was Defeated
We believe Jesus rose from the dead, declaring victory over death and hell. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father.
We Will Rise Again
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost.
Gifts of The Holy Spirit
We believe that to walk in the power of God, we must receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He is our helper and enables us to use our gifts, which include speaking in tongues.
Acts 1:8, 2:4, 10:44-48
We believe that water baptism is an outward symbolic sign and testimony that demonstrates that Jesus died for our sins and was raised by the power of the Holy Spirit. In baptism, we are identifying with His death and resurrection.
We believe that we are called to be Jesus’ hands and feet here on earth and that He is coming back for His bride (church).
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
1 Peter 3:20-21
