~ PRAY. Continue to pray for the Lord’s guidance, for protection and healing, for how we can help people, for the Lord’s will above all.
~ SERVICE NOT SELF-PRESERVATION. In any way that we can be proactive in serving and helping one another, we should. While taking precautions, the Lord has not called us to only be self-preserving. Our mentality should be like Christ - ready and willing to help in any way we can. This is an opportunity when people are looking for hope and help to show people the hope and help we have in Christ.
~ CHECK IN AND CONNECT WITH PEOPLE. To stay connected, people may need a phone call, groceries, encouragement, prayer, etc. We should both ask for and seek to help. For our church community, you can ask to join the WCM Connect church group. For a broader scope, you can join the facebook group WASH-OE HANDS to get and offer help for Washoe County.
Scriptures to meditate on:
Romans 8:28“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Colossians 1:17“He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”
Philippians 4:6-7“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Psalm 91:1-2 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

May you have His peace as you seek Him.

Whether you visit one time or decide to make this your church home, may the Lord bless you! Warehouse Christian Ministries has been formed as a fellowship of believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We are a warm community with a family atmosphere. Our supreme desire is to know Christ, and to be conformed to His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. The core belief of this ministry is to abide in the love and Word of God with all of our being, that we may love and serve our neighbors as ourselves. Based on this belief, teaching and preaching emphasizes a clear exposition of the Bible, with practical application to our lives. We are a Christian evangelical non-denominational fellowship. For more on what we believe, please see the Philosophy of Ministry and Doctrinal Statement below:
We Believe: That the only true basis of Christian Fellowship is His (Agape’) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.
We Believe: The Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God according to 2 Timothy 3:16-17: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
We Believe: Worship of God should be Spiritual! Therefore: We remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
We Believe: Worship of God should be Inspirational! Therefore: We give a great place to music in our worship.
We Believe: Worship of God should be Intelligent! Therefore: In our service, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
We Believe: Worship of God should be Fruitful! Therefore: We look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.
We Worship: To inspire the conscience by the holiness of God; To feed the mind with the truth of God; To devote the will to the purpose of God.
We Believe in One God who exists eternally in three persons: The Holy Trinity of the Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit.
We Believe that God created all and is sovereign over all of His creation.
We Believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary.
We Believe that Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man, sinless by His divine nature, but suffering in His human nature as a man in order to be an adequate sacrifice for all mankind.
We Believe that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day. Jesus overcame death and ascended to the right hand of God.
We Believe that Jesus Christ was sinless and is the only atoning sacrifice for our sins through His death and resurrection. We obtain salvation by faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and by repentance.
We Believe that the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible comprise the Word of God, written by God through man. The Bible is the fully inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. We believe the Bible is fully reliable and consistent with the original manuscripts.
We Believe that all people are sinners by nature, and are under condemnation by a righteous and just God until He regenerates and forgives people through their faith in Jesus Christ and genuine repentance.
We Believe that God is perfect in wisdom, holiness, power, sovereignty, and love. It was out of God’s great love for His creation that He made a way for us to be reconciled to Him now and eternally through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ – available for all mankind and for all of our sins.
We Believe the church is the body of Christ, not limited to walls, but the unified body of all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and follow His teachings.
We Believe that the Holy Spirit leads, guides, and teaches the believer to follow the will of God.
We Believe that the Biblical spiritual gifts exist and are practiced in the church, as well as the laying on of hands.
We Believe in the ordinances given by God of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that the Lord’s Supper should only be taken by believers, as it is an act of remembrance, repentance, and reverence to Jesus Christ.
We Believe that Jesus Christ will return again visibly to establish God’s new Kingdom. We believe that Jesus Christ will make the final judgment of mankind, and that God will establish the new heavens and the new earth, where those who have faith in Him will dwell forever, while those who do not will be separated from God forever.
