Our core purpose as a Church is to reflect God’s love and glory back
to Him in the same way that Jesus loved and glorified His Father. We do this by
doing what He commanded and making God and Jesus Christ known to all those He gives
us. (John 14:31 and 17:1-4).
WE LOVE AND GLORIFY GOD THROUGH
Loving Each Other – God is love and we as His Church are commanded to love each other. God’s love lives in us, thus, we give of our lives to one another, as Jesus did for us. Our love for each other becomes our testimony that we know God and believe in Christ’s love and sacrifice for our sins. (John 13:34-35, 1 John 4:7-19)
Growing in Truth - As a community we will struggle together as one body so that each of us, young and old will become mature in Christ. We desire that all our church family will be firmly planted in the truth and understanding of Jesus and learn from one another how to love and impact our community and the world through the truth found in Jesus Christ and His word. (Eph 4:13 and Col 1:28)
Worshiping Together - Worship connects us with the presence of God and is at the heart of all we do. We worship together on Sunday mornings as a starting point, then throughout the week we worship together through a constant sacrifice of praise, doing good, and fellowshipping together. (Isaiah 6:1-8, Hebrews 13:15-16)
Representing Christ – As we are made in the image of God, and to be His image, we seek to reflect Christ in His creation, as He is the perfect image of God. We are His ambassadors, representing Him in both character and purpose as we join Him to bring His peace and salvation to our community and the world. (Genesis 1:26-30, Colossians 1:15-20, 2 Corinthians 5:17-20).
