Our Mission
 
Jesus Christ gave us our marching orders in Matthew 28:18-20 in what has come to be known as the Great Commission.   And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  (ESV)
 
 

The reason we exist and the driving force behind all we do is simply 

to help people become devoted disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples.

 
 
 
 
Our Strategy
 
We follow a simple a four-part strategy to accomplish our God-given mission.
 
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 (ESV)
 
 
We ask God to help us connect with people who are not yet Christians so that we can help them connect with Jesus and our church family. We connect through corporate worship, building friendships, sharing the Gospel, and biblical hospitality.

 

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7 (ESV)  
 
 
We believe it is important for all believers to grow in their understanding of and obedience to God’s Word.  We encourage spiritual growth through the practice of a daily time alone with God, participation in Sunday School, discipleship groups and the personal application of God’s Word to everyday life.
 
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11 (ESV)  
 
 
We believe God gifted every believer with talents, abilities and at least one spiritual gift that He intended us to use “for the common good.” (1 Cor. 12).  We encourage every member to serve in at least one local church ministry as well as in our local community.

 
 
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (ESV)
 
 
We believe God has called the church to go out to reach and serve the world around us.  We encourage every member to be actively involved in serving and sharing the Gospel in our community, to participate in GROW outreach and local and global mission trips as they are able.
Our Beliefs
 
 
The Scriptures
 
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
 
God
 
There is one, and only one, living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
 
God the Father
 
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
 
God the Son
 
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.
 
God the Holy Spirit
 
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
 
Salvation
 
Salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
 
Baptism & the Lord’s Supper
 
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
 
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
 
Evangelism & Missions
 
It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.
