Our Purpose

We exist to magnify the worth of God by exalting our Savior, equipping the saints, and extending Christ's kingdom.

 

How are we seeking god to carry out this purpose in us?

We encourage you seek the Lord and his leading and as we do that together, we ask you to commit to involvement in one of each of of these areas: corporate worship, small gathering, in-church service, and outreach.

CORPORATE WORSHIP

To experience God’s presence and work, hear his welcome and word, and respond with worship, prayer, and thanksgiving.

And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need (Acts 2:42-45).

SMALL GATHERING

To strengthen our life together as members of Christ's body and to echo and reinforce in our daily lives the formation we receive in our Sunday morning corporate worship.

And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved (Acts 2:46-47).

IN-CHURCH SERVICE

To care for and disciple our church family toward a deeper love for Christ and a life surrendered in obedience to him.

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love (Ephesians 4:15-16).

OUTREACH

To reach those locally and globally, seeking to meet their physical and spiritual needs with the good news of and by the power of Jesus Christ.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).

 

Our Vision Prayer

Ask, seek, and knock, for God to develop us into a community of worshippers that bears much fruit as we live and proclaim the gospel with authenticity and passion.

 

Our Values

Our values help us to bridge the gap between a broad vision prayer and our purpose.  They help us to focus on what is most important and apply what we believe the Lord has called us to do in His Word.

  • LOVE God with all our hearts and love people as ourselves.
  • PREACH the truth and authority of God's Word.
  • PRAY according to God's Word led by His Holy Spirit.
  • PROCLAIM the life-changing message of the gospel.
  • SHEPHERD individuals and families toward maturity in Jesus Christ.
  • REST in the completeness of God's sovereignty.
  • DO all to the glory of God.
