What We Believe

At Istrouma we believe that God’s Word, the Bible, is inerrant and is a sufficient guide for all issues of belief and behavior.  A summary of our essential convictions based upon God’s Word can be found in the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).

Our Purpose

Our mission at Istrouma is simple. WE GLORIFY GOD BY MAKING DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS.

Glorify God

When we worship God, we express our love and devotion to Him and we glorify Him. What an honor it is to humbly come before the Creator of the Universe. All of us are wired for worship, and the only way we can express true love to God and worship Him is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We worship with all of our life, and we work hard to provide an exciting and God-honoring environment for corporate worship through our Sunday morning worship services.

Making Disciples

We also exist to help you grow in spiritual maturity and in community with other believers. Our goal is to help each other become followers - disciples - of Christ. Because the Christian life is one of constant growth and development, we are focused on teaching biblical principles in our small groups and equipping classes that can be applied to every day life.

All Nations

Another key purpose of Istrouma is to reach people who are outside the family of God. Every day, we rub shoulders with people who are just an invitation away from a life-changing encounter with Christ. We reach all nations by serving, being involved in missions, and inviting others to hear and understand what it means to be a follower of Christ.
