Making, maturing and multiplying faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ gave instructions to “make disciples of all nations” and promised that the Gospel would be preached in all the world.
Desiring that all people would live out the abundant life that Jesus offers, we will participate in bringing the Gospel to the world by sending, praying for, and supporting missionaries and international workers.
2. Prayer (1 John 5:14, James 5:16)
God invites us to be in communion with Him, and we believe that everything should be done with constant prayer.
We will individually and corporately live before God in adoration, confession, and thanksgiving, letting requests for ourselves and others be known to Him.
3. Community (Ps. 133:1, Acts 2:42-47, Phil 2:1-5, Heb. 10:24-25, John 13:35)
God’s people are united together in Jesus Christ and are charged to love each other, meet together, encourage each other, meet each other’s needs, share life, and be of the same mind.
We strive to be a community that encourages, supports, and strengthens one another; walking in tenderness and compassion; exemplifying love, encouragement, and humility with one another as we have seen in Christ Jesus.
4. Biblical Instruction (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Heb. 4:12)
God’s Word is the inspired and authoritative foundation of all our preaching, teaching, and life as followers of Jesus Christ.
We are committed to the clear and accurate communication of God’s Word in a way that ministers grace and motivates us to honor, serve and obey our God and Savior.
5. Worship (Rom. 12:1–2, Rev. 4:11, John 4:20-24)
God alone is good, and He deserves all praise and glory as our Creator and Savior.
We acknowledge God’s supreme value and worth, and we desire to foster a culture of worship both in our personal lives and as a corporate body of believers.
6. Family (Deut 6:6-7, Josh 24:15)
The family is the divine building block of Christian community, and marriage is a picture of Christ and His church.
We are committed to providing an environment which supports, nurtures, and strengthens marriages and families. We strive to see a generation of Godly families which will be a heritage for years to come.
7. Evangelism (Rom. 10:14-15, 1 Pet. 3:15, Acts 1:8)
We believe lost people matter to God; therefore, they matter to us. Christ commanded us to proclaim the Good News to all and to make disciples.
We aspire to individually and corporately, share the love of God and good news of Jesus Christ with those around us in the surrounding area.
We envision being a people whose first thought is always prayer; a body of believers who enjoy the presence of Christ in every moment and every context, and who live a life immersed in prayer, whether it be corporately or individually.
We see a community who loves to live life together both within the church and beyond; a church family that is eager to support one another and build each other up. We see a fellowship of believers united in Christ, spurring each other on through encouragement and accountability, bearing each others’ burdens and rejoicing with each others’ blessings.We see a church that is hungry for God’s Word, zealous about instilling that passion in others, and diligent in equipping them with the tools to do so.
We see a church where biblical instruction is truthful, accurate, and brings growth and spiritual maturity; where people are encouraged to meditate on the Word, cherish it, and be “doers” of the Word, not just hearersonly. We envision a thriving Sunday School ministry where all ages have a place to learn and grow in knowledge and understanding of God’s Word; a safe place where people can ask tough questions and get honest answers.
We see a people who, with one voice and their whole being, unashamedly proclaim the Glory of their God and Savior whenever they gather together; a body of believers who see worship as a way of life; who are driven to acknowledge the holiness of God in wonder and awe, and who rejoice in the opportunity they have to connect with Him through worship.
We envision strong and healthy marriages and healing family relationships. We see families who live in integrity and pass that lifestyle on through generations. We see an environment where parents are empowered and equipped to raise up the next generation of godly men and women in knowledge and love of God and maintaining a strong and lasting relationship with Him.
We see people who are excited about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ; people who are bold and always ready to give a reason for the hope that is in them. We see believers who self-sacrificially serve their community in the name of Jesus, and whose joy and hope in Christ is visible and contagious to all who witness it. In the years to come, we see God growing this church, not just from believers moving to town, but from the lost turning to Christ because of our verbal testimony and living witness of Him.
We are committed to sound Biblical doctrine, based upon His written Word, the Bible. We proclaim these truths, believing that they bring about the only life worth living, a life wholly committed to the Lord Jesus Christ.
