Why We Exist As A Church
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
WE BELIEVE WE ARE CALLED TO:
Rejoice in God’s Presence Through Worship
Worship is a vital part of our church life.
Reveal God’s Word Through Practical Teaching
Our teaching will never become a waste of people’s time, but be practical for day-to-day living.
Relate to God’s Family Through Fellowship
It is important to us that we encourage the gathering of people and the building of positive relationships.
Reinforce God’s People Through Training & Discipleship
We desire to make people faithful followers of Jesus Christ. Not religious, but involved in a Relationship with Jesus!
Reach Out With God’s Love Through Ministry
We believe that as long as someone in our area does not know Jesus Christ, we must continue to reach out and serve.
WE DO NOT EXIST TO:
WE DO BELIEVE:
In Essential beliefs – we have Unity
“There is but one Body and one Spirit...there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God and Father of us all.” Ephesians 4:4-6
In Non-Essential beliefs – we have Liberty
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters... So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
In All Our beliefs – we show Love
“...and if I have the faith that can move mountains - but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2
Doing Church as a Team – Seeing people
live out their gifts, talents and passions for God. People using what they have been given and joining with others is God’s effective design for fulfilling ministry.
WE DO NOT BELIEVE WE ARE:
We believe a Great Commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will grow a Great Christian and will grow a Great Church.
We believe that we are called to bring health to people by the power of the scriptures and the Holy Spirit. A bigger church is not better: Better is Better. Healthy is Better. It is our desire to accept each one where they are and help them grow. Jesus is more concerned with where we are going than where we have been. It is the desire of our heart to raise people up in the love, grace and knowledge of God and see everyone become healthy and strong. We must extend the same mercy to all. Since Jesus loves us, how can we do anything less than loveothers?
We believe we are to enjoy laughter, which is not only a good medicine, but is essential to us as a church family. Times to lighten up are critical to us and this joy of the Lord is our strength.
We Strive To See:
- Every Member a Minister
- Every God-given opportunity as an honor
- Every Individual as Valuable
- Every Person Grows (at their own pace)
