Mac and Liseth Shirley

 

Our Lead and Founding Pastors, Mac and Liseth Shirley, felt God calling them to create a     place that encourages everyone to come seek God just as they are (Hebrews 4:16). It has   never been about starting another church or doing something new, it has always been       about loving people and obeying Jesus. Pastors Mac and Liseth's passion is to empower     people to change the world around them and they believe there is no dream too big and     that there is nothing that God cannot do! Under their leadership, Authentic has now expanded into a multi-location, church-planting church that is impacting the Kingdom for   the glory of God and pressing into the life changing power of Jesus.

Prayer

Our dedication to prayer and fasting is at the core of who we are. We don't just talk about it, we live it out and lead others in how to pray powerful prayers because prayer keeps us hungry for the presence of God.

Excellence

We do all things unto the Lord. He gets our best, therefore, we do things well and give Him the glory!

WHAT WE BELIEVE

GOD

We believe that there is only one God. He exists in three persons, called the Trinity: God the Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

​THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is the word of God. It is the infallible, inspired Word of God, and its authority is ultimate and eternal.

 

SALVATION

Salvation is a gift given by God’s grace. It cannot be earned through our own efforts, but only the blood of Jesus, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation and forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when we place our faith in Jesus as payment for sin.

THE CHURCH

The goal of the Church is to make disciples of all nations and to present the saints complete in Christ. We will be known by our love.

 

​BAPTISM

Baptism is the outward sign of what God has already done in the individual’s life.

​COMMUNION

Christians should take communion to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus as we live the life He has called us to until He returns.

​SECOND COMING

We believe in the return of Jesus Christ our Lord.
