Our Purpose is to honor God by:
Worshiping Him, strengthening believers and sharing the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ
Our Vision is to be a church that honors God in everything we do. We will share the saving message of Christ with others, introduce them to a personal relationship with Him, and equip and encourage them to continue the good work that He has begun. Directed by the Holy Spirit, we will do this by:
Publicly - God is holy and worthy to be praised. We will gather together as God’s people to focus our worship on Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Privately – God has called us to worship Him with our lives. We will encourage families and individuals to set aside time for regular worship which includes Bible reading and prayer.
Promoting fellowship with one another - God has given us the privilege and responsibility to fellowship with one another through His Son, Jesus Christ. We will regularly gather together to encourage each other to greater service to God and to man. We will serve God and His family by sharing our abilities, spiritual gifts and talents.
Building disciples - God has commanded us to strengthen one another's faith. We will encourage, support and challenge each other in our relationship with God by preaching and teaching His word and by emphasizing the need to be like Christ.
Sharing the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ…
Sharing Christ with others - God has called us to make disciples of all the nations. We will share the saving message of Christ with our community, our nation, and our world.
Extending Christ’s Kingdom - God has not only called us to declare the gospel but also to demonstrate it by showing the love of Christ through our relationships and activity. We will extend the reign of Christ by being agents of His mercy and compassion wherever we are.
