Worship. Love. Serve.
This is our Vision Statement. We have a vision of life together as a local expression of the Body of Jesus Christ. ("The Body" is a biblical term for all of the people who belong to Christ by faith.)
Our vision consists of:
We worship our God and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We believe that it is an imperative part of our lives as followers of Jesus that we come together in focused worship and adoration of the triune God of the universe. We express our hope in Him through singing songs based on the Bible, praying prayers based on the Bible, reading the Bible, and preaching sermons from the Bible.
The Bible says, “By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.” (John. 13:35)
We seek to obey the Bible by loving one another well. This means knowing one another in real relationships. This means asking real questions that get to the heart of our hearts. This means calling one another to live by faith in the Son of God by obeying all that he has commanded us. We want to love one another well.
We see a consistent prophetic focus throughout the Bible on serving the poor and outcast. We desire to live this principle out together and in our individual lives. We want to make it a priority for our Small Groups to spend intentional time serving the underserved in our communities together. We believe that the most important need that we should serve is the need that every individual has for a right relationship with Jesus Christ through the gospel. (The gospel is the good news that Jesus of Nazareth was God the Son in human flesh who died for our sake to reconcile us to God.) So, we try to make it a priority to speak about the gospel with friends and neighbors so that they can have a relationship with the triune God that we worship.
