We are a diverse and loving church, passionately sharing the life-changing power of Jesus Christ with others. This vision is built upon three fundamental values: love, acceptance, and forgiveness. These values were evident in the life of Jesus Christ and we want them to be just as evident in our individual lives.
We exist to extend love, acceptance and forgiveness to all people. This mission is accomplished through the four following goals:
- To teach and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ
- To offer an inviting, engaging, and Spirit-led worship experience.
- To share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ, locally and globally.
- To provide God-fearing leaders who support the vision & mission of the church.
Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40 NIV
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. Mark 16:15-17, 20 NIV
