Compass is a faith-based nonprofit. Though faith is important to us, faith is not a requirement of receiving services at Compass. We are here to serve women and families so they may flourish and experience hope!

What does Compass believe about God and the Bible?

    1.  We believe the Bible is the inspired revelation of God’s story, pointing to and fulfilled in Jesus Christ.  
      1. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 19: 7-11; 
    2. We believe there is one almighty, loving, and perfect God, eternally coexistent in three personalities; Father, Son, Holy Spirit. 
      1. Matthew 28: 19; 
    3. We believe in God the Father, maker, and sustainer of all things. 
      1. Genesis 1:1; Acts 17: 24-28
    4. We believe in Jesus Christ, fully God and fully human, who lived, died, and rose again to bridge the gap between God and people.  
      1. John 3:16; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 
    5. We believe in the Holy Spirit who convicts people of sin, renews them, and helps them to grow in love for God and others. 
      1. John 14: 26; John 16:8
    6. We believe that because of our disobedience to God our relationship with Him is broken and we are in need of salvation from sin and death. 
      1. Romans 3:23; Romans 6: 23;
    7. We believe that we are made right with God when we turn from our disobedience to Him and put our faith in Jesus’ righteousness. 
      1. Romans 3: 23-25; John 3:16; Acts 3: 19-21; 
    8. We believe that salvation is a gracious gift from God, not the result of human efforts. 
      1. Ephesians 2: 8-9; James 2:24; 
    9. We believe that all those saved by faith in Jesus Christ make up the family of God, the Church and that the Church is to join together to worship God, encourage one another and share the good news of Jesus Christ.  
      1. Acts 2: 46-47; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 2:19-20; 
    10. We believe that Jesus Christ will return one day to bring justice to our broken world, to make all things right, and restore the peace and joy of his creation forever. 
      1. John 14: 1-3; Matthew 25: 31-46; 1 Peter 1: 13; 
    11. We believe that our Christian faith propels us to strive to imitate Jesus Christ by living lives directed by the truth of God’s Word, the Bible.           
      1. Philippians 2:3-8; 1 John 2:5-6; Ephesians 5:1-2
