To help people become fully devoted disciples of Jesus.
To CONNECT with God and GROW IN LOVE through relentlessly seeking intimacy with God and each other as we GO IN LOVE to share His story and serve the community.
We seek God, the originator of true, unconditional love, which dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. We choose to obey His commands to love Him with everything we have and to love others. (Matt. 22:37-40; 1 John 4:7-12, 16)
We relentlessly seek intimacy with God through the study of His Story (the Bible). We share our individual stories to give an account of what God has done in our lives. (Psalm 119:97; Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
We know that God works through us to meet the needs of others. We desire to use the gifts and talents God has given us individually and corporately to serve locally, regionally, and globally. (Isaiah 58:6-12; Matt. 25:34-40; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12:4-11; Eph. 4:11-16; James 1:27, 2:15-17; 1 John 3:16-18)
We were not made to walk out our faith alone. We pursue authentic community within the church so that we might be able to encourage each other and share in our struggles. (Eccl. 4:9-12; Romans 12: 9-21; 1 Cor. 12:12-26)
