Put simply, our mission is to love God and love others. We are passionate about leading our people to a passion for loving God and to glorify God by helping everyone we reach to know the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom He sent (John 17:3).
We will seek to accomplish this by:
- Glorifying God (Worship): We desire to lift God as the Supreme being in all the world, acknowledging Him as the ONE TRUE GOD, and thus create a satisfaction in Him in our heart and life that surpasses all else. We believe God alone is worthy of our worship, the devotion and affection of our entire life, and the worship of the rest of the world.
- Knowing God (Disciple-Making): We desire to teach everyone the nature and character of the one true God. Everything we do in corporate worship, small groups, outreach, and in caring for and serving one another will be done with the goal of displaying how great our God is, and for the equipping of believers to tell others about this great God whom we have devoted our life to. We desire that through this effort every person would be maturing in Christ and ultimately reproducing themselves in the life of someone else.
- Sharing God (Evangelism): We believe this is an overflow of the first two goals – If we accomplish the first two goals, then we won’t be able to stop ourselves from sharing this awesome God and Jesus Christ whom He sent with everyone we are around. We desire that as many people as possible experience forgiveness of their sins and life-transforming power of the Holy Spirit living inside them.
We believe that the priorities of the church can be described two-fold:
First, by helping people to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word (2 Peter 1:2-9) and second, by helping people to grow in three personal relationships each Christian should develop.
We believe every maturing believer should be centered first on God, as this is the most important relationship man will enter into. Every maturing believer should be committed next to a group of fellow-believers in a relationship of love and edification and accountability. As an overflow of the first two relationships being in place, every maturing believer and local church should be involved in making disciples of unbelievers. There is an order of priority in that each relationship is empowered by the prior one(s). But all three should be developed simultaneously in the life of the church.
