WHO WE ARE
Know Jesus Christ.
Grow in Jesus Christ
Show the love of Jesus Christ.
The Sanctuary held it’s first public service on Valentines day of 2010. Our rented location at the time was a Shoreview, MN hotel conference room. In the fall of 2010 we moved to our current location which is just one block east of Lexington Ave and Cnty Rd E. The building that we are now renting is a beautiful office suite that overlooks a scenic marsh (you have to check it out!).
The Sanctuary’s current address is 1030 Cnty Rd E Suite #100, Shoreview, MN 55126.
The Sanctuary is a Pentecostal church and is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International; which has a worldwide constituency of more than 4 million in over 32,000 congregations in 177 countries.
The Sanctuary is comprised of people from many different backgrounds and cultures. From singles to married couples, senior citizens to youth & children, you will discover that every event is represented by those from all walks of life. And while our backgrounds and experiences are diverse we are united by a mutual commitment to Jesus Christ.
Because people and families are important to God they are also important to us. This is why at The Sanctuary we place a focus on building the home after godly principles. One way that this is accomplished is by participating in relevant and interactive classes. The subjects vary from Parenting, Marriage enrichment, Becoming a Man or Woman after God’s own heart, and much more!
Your family is welcome!
We believe there is one God, who is Creator & Father of all things and Lord over all creation. That He is an eternal, invisible, omnipresent, almighty Spirit; that He is knowable and understandable and not a mystery. God revealed Himself in the Old Testament to Moses as YHWH (I AM) the self existent one and He is unequal with anyone, indivisible and He is one person. (Isaiah 45:5; Exod 3:14,15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4:11; Matthew 11:25; Psalm 90:2; 1 Timothy 1:17; Jeremiah 9:23, 23:24; Genesis 17:1; John 4:24; 1 Peter 1:16; Psalm 103:8; Psalm 145:9; Deuteronomy 32:4; 6:4)
We believe JESUS is God’s name and the one name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. In Him (Jesus Christ) dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily and the name JESUS is the only personal name of God given among men whereby we must be saved. (Matt 28:19, Acts 2:38, 1 Timothy 3:16; Romans 1:3; Matthew 16:16; John 4:42; Colossians 2:9; John 5:43; Hebrews 1:4; Philippians 2:9; Acts 4:12.
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:11-14; Acts 2:38)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. (Acts 2:4)
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government. (Mark 16:15-18; Acts 5:16; 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe the invisible God was manifest (made visible) in flesh as the Man, JESUS of Nazareth, who is the Son of God, the Christ, and our Savior. (Matt 28:19, Acts 2:38, 1 Timothy 3:16; Romans 1:3; Matthew 16:16; John 4:42; Colossians 2:9)
