Who We Are
What We Believe
Jacob’s Well’s Statement of Faith is what we believe to be the non-negotiable, orthodox, central tenets of faith. In keeping with our vision and seeking to meet everyone where they are on their journey, we don't require all who attend to profess these beliefs. We do ask our members and
those seeking membership to be in agreement.
We think of the Church Covenant as our most valued document. It's about relationship – how we agree to treat and relate with one another. We call all who seek membership to agree to live by and hold other members accountable to the covenant. Living by the Church Covenant is required to serve in many areas of leadership at Jacob’s Well.
Every so often an issue comes along that the Overseers and Pastors of Jacob’s Well believe
needs great clarity for the sake of unity and practice in the church. We do this through a statement.
Our individual statements are distinct from the Statement of Faith above. The individual statements reflect the Overseers’ current and best understanding of an issue, that sincere and genuine disagreement exists within honest Christian scholarship, and that in the future this belief and practice could change. But for clarity and unity at Jacob’s Well, the statement will give direction
to our practice on the issue. So it is with our Charismatic Statement and our Statement on Women and their roles in the church.
