Every time we gather together, we remind ourselves about the big “Why?” Why do we exist as a church?
The answer is our MISSION statement, accomplished through our VALUES.
Growth. We value personal growth by teaching people to study the Bible, to practice prayer, and to do good. We value Kingdom growth by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to people in our community so that the church will be full, and by sending missionaries out to establish new churches around the world.
Connection. We value connection by gathering together Sundays as the family of God to experience the fullness of Christ in worship, and by participating in Life Groups (small groups) for the purpose of building relationships, and encouraging and motivating one another to live like Jesus.
Generosity. We value generosity by giving sacrificially of our finances and time in order to help others, to show appreciation, and to invest in the Kingdom of God in obedience to the Holy Spirit’s prompting.
Love. We value love by submitting to God, to authority, and to one another; considering the needs of others more important than our own, and by showing honor, kindness, and care to all people.
Jesus is the answer to all of life’s issues.
Our church mission is to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to learn about Jesus and to believe in Him so that they can experience the full life He promises. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Only Jesus lived the perfect life, and then He died for us on a cross and rose again from the dead three days later. As a result of His resurrection, anyone can be made perfect in God’s eyes by accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior and deciding to follow His ways as the Lord of their life.
Jesus changes everything!
