23 Aug Who We Are and What We Believe
One Love Ministries began in 2006 with a small group of college students, along with Waxer and Cindy Tipton, the “old couple” of the group, who were in their thirties at the time. We came together from many different backgrounds, ethnicities and experiences, but with one major thing in common, we knew that there was a God in heaven who loved us and we wanted to help others know Him – through the study of His word, and experience His love – through worship and fellowship. We did not set out to build a major church, but to just teach God’s word and be faithful with whomever God brought our way.
Today we are so blessed and amazed at the wonderful people that God has brought together to make up One Love Ministries. We still come from hugely diverse backgrounds and experiences, but our common goal – knowing God and desiring to make Him known – bonds us together. We desire to impact the world with God’s love, beginning in our own backyard and then throughout the world. We are not a perfect church, because we are made up of imperfect people, but we serve a perfect God who is continually at work in and around us.
If you are looking for a church, or maybe just have some unanswered questions about who God is or if He is even real, we invite you to come join us sometime very soon. We’d love to meet you and introduce you to some amazing people and an amazing God if you don’t already know Him!Statement of Purpose

WE BELIEVE… what’s at the Core of One Love
We Believe the only true basis of Christian Fellowship is God’s Agape Love, which is greater than any differences we possess, and without which we have no right to claim ourselves to be Christians.
We Believe Worship of God should be Spiritual. Therefore… we remain flexible and yield to the Holy Spirit to direct our Worship.
We Believe Worship of God should be Inspirational. Therefore… we give great place to music in our Worship.
We Believe Worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore… our services are designed with great emphasis on Teaching the Word of God, the Bible, that He might instruct us as to how He would be Worshiped.
We Believe Worship of God is fruitful. Therefore… we look for His Love in our lives as the Supreme Manifestation that we have truly been Worshiping Him.
