OUR MISSION

WE EXIST TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD

love God

and one another

God is love. Jesus taught us that we must first love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:36-40).We must then extend that love to one another, loving and caring for others just as we love and care for ourselves (1 John 4:7-8). We are known as disciples of Christ by our sincere and visible love for God and one another (John 13:35).

grow in our

faith, love, and community

We are called to have a close personal relationship with God (Colossians 1:9-12). We answer the call by participating personally and in community with others, in spiritual disciplines such as worship, prayer, and Bible study. Through spiritual disciplines, we grow in faith and love and progress along the path of discipleship (2 Peter 3:18).

share in God’s message

of love and forgiveness

Through our words and actions we will share the joy that comes from living a Christ-filled life. We are compelled to share God’s Good News so that everyone will know that they are loved and forgiven (Matthew 28:15-20). We want everyone to have eternal life which comes from the sacrifice of God’s only son (John 3:16).

serve others to

transform the world

We will generously use the gifts that God has given us to serve others (1 Peter 4:11). Through risk-taking service we will help people, both near and far, whether or not they are a part of the community of faith (Matthew 25:40). As God’s servants, we will transform the world one life at a time by sharing our time, talents, gifts, and service with love.
