Our purpose is to glorify God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ who are a community of worshipers on mission.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO GLORIFY GOD…
We exist for the praise of God’s glorious grace. This grace is most clearly seen in Jesus as He lived the faithful life we could not live, died the guilty death we deserve to die, and rose again so that we can be forgiven and renewed to know and treasure Him above all things. Our goal is for the knowledge and praise of God to spread deeper in our lives and broader in our world.
…BY BEING AND MAKING DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST…
The gospel calls us to trust in Jesus and follow Him as disciples. We are to love as He loved and live as He lived, becoming more and more like Him throughout our lives. As His disciples, we are also called to make more disciples by proclaiming the gospel as well as teaching and modeling obedience to everything His Word commands.
…WHO ARE A COMMUNITY…
God’s purpose has always been to create a community of people who know Him and show the world what He is like through their relationships with one another. The church is filled with those who are being transformed by the Spirit through faith in the gospel to become like Jesus, learning to love and serve one another as we have been loved and served by Him.
The central purpose of the gospel is the restoration of true worship. As we trust in Jesus and what He did for us through His death and resurrection, our broken relationship with God is restored. We grow to value Him above all things and seek to honor Him in all things. Therefore, we are a worshiping community, always responding to His grace with thankfulness whether we are gathered or apart.
God is gathering people from all nations to find their joy and hope in Christ. We are not only saved to know Jesus, but to make Him known through our words and actions. Therefore, we recognize that we are all missionaries, called to join God’s mission of making disciples in our families, neighborhoods, communities, and workplaces, and among all nations.
Love the Lord your God…and love your neighbor as yourself.
