Mission:

Glorifying God1 and sharing2 the Gospel of Christ with "our world" while living3 gratefully for Him.

  1. Great Commandment:
    • 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.  (Mark 12:30)
    • Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.   (Psalm 86:11-12)
    • Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.   (Philippians 4:4)
    • To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.   (2 Thess 1:11-12)

  2. Great Commission:

  3. New life in Christ:
    • Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.    (Rom 6:4)
    • "It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant."    (Matt 20:26)
    • Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.    (Colossians 3:17)
    • You shall love your neighbor as yourself.    (Mark 12:31)

    Vision:

    United in our desire to worship4 God in spirit and truth, we seek to boldly advance5 His Kingdom by equipping6 His people with the knowledge of His word7; that we may be His winsome witnesses8 to our hurting world, tenderly sharing the hope, the purpose, and the peace that is found only in His grace9 as revealed in the cross of Christ.

  5. Worship:
    • Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'"    (Luke 4:8)
    • "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers."    (John 4:23)
    • Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.    (Rom 12:1)

  6. Cultural Mandate (to impact our culture)
    • 'But get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to you, to appoint you a minister and a witness not only to the things which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to you; rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.'    (Acts 26:16-18)
    • But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.    (1 Pet 3:15)

  7. Equipping of the saints:
    • All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.    (2 Tim 3:16-17)

  8. Authority of Scripture:
    • "Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.    (John 17:17)
    • For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.    (Heb 4:12)

  9. Witnesses:
    • ... you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."    (Acts 1:8)
    • Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.    (2 Cor 5:20)

  10. Saved by grace:
    • For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.    (Eph 2:8)
    • Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.    (Rom 5:1)
