Description


Few would associate strong community with apartment living. Yet forward-thinking owners and managers see the potential in building authentic community to attract and retain residents. The apartment industry has traditionally focused marketing and retention strategies around apartment features and services. Good floor plans, pools, fitness centers, 24-hour maintenance, and high-speed internet are indeed indispensable in today’s marketplace. Yet these amenities fail to provide a sustainable competitive edge. Community focuses not on products or services – but relationships. Relationships are the anchors or “glue” that keeps residents for the long term. The competition can always offer better landscaping, faster Internet service, and larger closets - but friendships and community are not easily replaced. Apartment Life is a Christian-based nonprofit organization that is passionate about helping owners "connect people and community". We recruit, train and manage onsite CARES Teams (married couple/family or two single adults) to assist management in building community and serving residents. CARES Teams turn an apartment into a "home" - including personal welcome visits, social activities, lease renewal programs and resident support in times of special need.

Organizational Statement of Faith


Statement of Faith The Scripture We believe the Bible is God’s word. We believe the bible contains 66 books (Old and New Testament). We believe the Bible is the full and only authoritative infallible written revelation from God to man. We believe the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. We believe the Bible is accessible to each person for understanding through the work of the Holy Spirit. God We believe that God eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, having the same nature, attributes and perfection, and worthy of the same worship and obedience. Man We believe that man was originally created in the image of God but has fallen through sin, and as a consequence has separated himself from God, being dead in sin. Man is now essentially and unchangeably unholy apart from divine grace. Jesus Christ We believe that Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father to manifest God to man and to become the Redeemer of a lost world. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, and voluntarily accepted the Father’s will and became the sacrificial Lamb to take away the sins of man through His death on the cross. On the third day after His burial, He rose again and was received into heaven where He now rules over all things and makes intercession for His people. We believe Christ is the only and exclusive mediator between God and man in salvation and prayer. Salvation The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only way for salvation of lost and sinful man. Salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, and not through any merit on the part of the sinner. All the glory for the salvation of man belongs to God alone. The Holy Spirit We believe in the Holy Spirit, who indwells believers at the moment of their conversion and empowers believers to live the Christian life. The Church We believe that all who are united to the risen and ascended Christ are members of His Church regardless of denominational affiliation. Having become members one of another, all are under solemn duty to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, agreeing on core doctrinal beliefs about Christ and salvation and rising above minor doctrinal differences, loving one another with a pure heart. The Local Church We believe that the local church is the primary instrument of God in the world today for the purpose of Biblical teaching, corporate worship, encouragement, fellowship, discipleship, evangelism and missions. Christians should make a commitment to a local church where they can be spiritually fed, connect with other ministries, and practice Biblical stewardship. The Christian Life We believe that Christians are called to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, and so living in the power of the Spirit they will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. The flesh with its fallen nature needs to be kept constantly in subjection to Christ, so as not to come forth in our lives and bring dishonor to the Lord. Charismatic Issues We are an interdenominational ministry that seeks to serve and cooperate with all segments of the evangelical body of Christ. We realize there is division in the Christian body over the matter of speaking in tongues and the second indwelling of the Holy Spirit after conversion and we respect the diversity of perspectives and traditions. In order to maintain harmony in the ministry it is our policy to refrain from these practices and teaching in any Apartment Life or CARES activity. The Eternal State We believe that after death, those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be resurrected and be reunited with Christ in heaven. Those who have not believed in Christ will be separated from God foreve.
