Our Purpose

Love God Passionately

Love people compassionately

When Jesus was asked what the most important command in the Bible is His answer was to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourself.

Therefore we exist to glorify God by loving Him and loving others.

Our Mission

Know, Grow, Serve, Go

Jesus made our mission clear in Matthew 28 when He said that we are to be disciples who make disciples.

Therefore, we are committed to doing all we can to help people come to Know Jesus Personally, Grow in Community, Serve with Purpose, and Go on Mission.


Know Jesus

Personally

God desires for us to know Him intimately. As we devote ourselves to the study of God's word we grow in our knowledge and love of God. We pursue this through the teaching/preaching of the Bible, Sunday school classes, weekly Bible studies and individual initiated discipleship groups.


Grow

In Community

The church is a family. It is a local gathering of growing Christ-followers that are not only committed to knowing God, but also vitally concerned with growing closer together. We are a family of faith who gather on a regular basis to encourage one another and share life together. This is pursued through Small Groups and intentional fellowship as we commit to doing life together.


Serve

With Purpose

Following Jesus is not primarily about us, it is about living a life of humble service to God and others. We believe that God is most honored when we live, love, give and serve as Jesus did.


Go

On Mission

Living for Jesus means living on mission. Our love for God and people drives us to missional living in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, and all across the globe as we strive to share the good news of God's love and grace wherever God calls us.


In addition to this, we have several ministry partners around the world, you can find more information here

Core Values

Christ-centered, people-focused.   This means our worship service is both reverently joyful, as we celebrate Christ, and warm and welcoming, as we practice kindness and hospitality. We believe that Jesus is our Lord and King, and the people he brings us are gifts. (Colossians 1:15-20; Romans 12:9-13)

Biblically based, doctrinally clear.  The Bible is our guide for faith and practice, so our teaching aims to be faithful to an accurate interpretation and relevant to daily life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

Grace oriented, not legalistic.  The grace of the gospel is our core motivator. It is the only hope by which we can lead a holy life. Although we will encourage holy obedience and the development of Christian character, we see this as the fruit of our walk with Jesus, not the root of our faith. In other words, we are not saved because we are good, we become good because we are saved by grace. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

A commitment to prayer.  Prayer is our spiritual connection to our Heavenly Father. We long for a church which makes prayer its first rather than its last priority, one in which every corporate and individual need is bathed in fervent prayer. We encourage a variety of prayer times: congregational prayer, small groups, prayer partners, 24-hour prayer rooms, etc. Prayer is vital to our church life, and we invite all to join us. (Matthew 6:5-15)

Authentic leaders who foster unity.  Servant-leaders seek to follow Jesus’ example of sacrificial love. They rely wholly on Christ to consistently live out their faith. Servant-leaders aim to earn people's trust by humble, Spirit-led leadership; demonstrating a shepherd's heart, along with clear communication and intentionality. In accordance with scripture, they will strive to be "hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined." (Titus1:5-9)

Relational small groups.  Christian growth and maturity come from solid teaching coupled with biblical relationships. We will have a stronger, healthier church when people are strong and healthy spiritually. A network of small groups unites us to one another in faith and purpose. (Acts 2:42-47; John 13:34-35)

A commitment to families, children and youth.  Our vision of discipling children, teens and young adults into mature believers means that we value their families and seek to strengthen their parents as well. Three key aspects—Spiritual formation, confidence in the Bible, and involvement in ministry—are important goals which direct our choices about our children’s, youth, and college and career ministries. Our students are not only the church of the future, but an integral part of the church today. (Luke 18:16; 2 Timothy 3:14-15)

Members as ministers.  Each member of the body is necessary to build one another up. Ministry is the hands and feet of our faith, through which people understand that the message of Jesus is trustworthy and that God loves them. We aim to equip people to serve in whatever sphere God directs them to, according to their strengths and spiritual gifts. (Romans 12:3-8)
