Venture is a non-denominational church in the heart of Silicon Valley. They are a group of people from all parts of the world and from very diverse backgrounds. It’s their mission to help people find and worship Jesus. Their passion is to serve their culture, to meet people where they are, and to inspire them to take a step towards the knowledge of the Kingdom of God.

Beliefs About The Bible

They believe the Holy Scriptures to be plenary-verbally inspired, the very Word of God, authoritative, infallible and inerrant in the original writings. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible, being fully inspired by God in its entirety, is His perfect Word and is the authority for all faith and life.

Beliefs About God

They believe there is one God, creator and ruler of the universe, who is personal, infinite, perfect; and He exists eternally as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Beliefs About The Person and Work of Jesus Christ

They believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who became human without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful humanity. They believe that He accomplished our redemption through His sinless life, and death on the cross as a voluntary, substitutionary sacrifice. They believe that our redemption is made sure by His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead. They believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven exalted at the right hand of God, whereas the High Priest for His people, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.

Beliefs About The Person of Holy Spirit

They believe that the Holy Spirit is God, equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world, making people aware of their need for and drawing them to salvation in Jesus Christ. He indwells every believer from the moment of salvation, empowering them to live an obedient life that glorifies God and fulfills His purposes. He leads us into truth and gives spiritual gifts to every believer that are to be used to build up the body of Christ. The follower of Jesus will seek to be filled and led by the Holy Spirit daily.

Beliefs About Humanity

They believe that people, both male and female, are created in the image and likeness of God. In Adam ’s rebellion, the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became alienated from God, and can be restored to God’s favor only through the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. They believe in the literal historicity of Genesis 1-3.

Beliefs About Marriage

In accordance with God’s Word and Church history, they define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. According to Genesis 1:28 and 2:24, marriage was intended by God to be a lifelong covenant relationship between a man and a woman. This definition of marriage was confirmed by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 19:3-6; Mark 10:6-9 and reiterated by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 5:31-33 and Hebrews 13:4. This definition of marriage has also been affirmed throughout Church history by leaders of the Christian faith.
