Who We Are…
We are a Great Commission church, with a Great Commandment heart.
Matthew 28:19-20 (Great Commission)
“Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and theSon and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 22:36-40 (Greatest Commandments)
“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Our Mission is…
To help people love God and to love others.
1 –“HELP PEOPLE” – Walking together to become more like Jesus. (Great Commission)
2 -“LOVE GOD” – Knowing and trusting God and responding to His love. (Greatest Commandment)
3 -“LOVE OTHERS” – Seeking to know others and to re-gift (Second Greatest Commandment)
Our Core Values are:
We seek to live purposeful lives toward the aim of engaging the community in which we are placed with the life-giving message of Jesus.
We seek to help people to grown into a deep, life-changing relationship with God that colors every aspect of their lives.
We seek to live in such a way as to be an example of God’s glory and majesty to those among whom we are place in order that by seeing us they see a picture of Him.
We seek to help others to identify and implement the unique calling of God on their lives.
We seek to demonstrate the grace, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness of Jesus to those among whom we live.
