OUR MISSION AND PURPOSE

OUR MISSION

 Helping people know Jesus, find purpose and experience true life.   

OUR DESTINY

Someone once said, the two greatest days in a person’s life are the day they are born and the day they discover what they were born for. We believe every person is born with a divinely designed destiny from God...and consider it to be the greatest of human tragedies for a person to go to their grave never having lived out their calling and divine purpose. This is why we are passionate about our mission... to help people know Jesus, find purpose, and experience true life from God.  

OUR CORE PURPOSES

We believe Jesus Christ gave His Church core purposes for us to pursue that are found in the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-39) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).

As a church we are committed to be doing our best to pursue a lifestyle around these five purposes, having faith that as we do, we will live out a significant and impacting life that is pleasing to God.

1.  We are committed to LOVING GOD and making Jesus the center of our lives.

Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.  (John 14:6).

We believe that we will find our destiny and impact the world as we pursue a loving relationship with Jesus and honor Him as King and Lord of our entire lives. This is our greatest surrender and act of worship we can offer to God.

2. We are committed to CONNECTING with other believers and doing life together. 

The early church grew stronger as they worshipped together, and shared meals and prayers with one another with simplicity and gladness of hearts (Acts 2:46).

We believe we will thrive better as Christians when we intentionally connect in healthy friendships and share our lives and faith journey with one another.

3.  We are committed to SERVING OTHERS and living beyond ourselves.   

Jesus said He came not to be served but to serve others and give His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).

We believe that God designed each of us with gifts and abilities, and as we step out and use them to serve God and people, we will find the inner joy and significance that comes as we give of ourselves to help others.

4.  We are committed to GROWING IN CHARACTER and becoming more like Jesus.   

We all come to Jesus with broken hearts and broken lives. The good news is that God’s love has supernatural power to heal our past and transform our lives as we trust Him and obey His Word. We believe God gives us His grace to help us to change as He calls us to grow to become more like Jesus (Titus 2:11-12).

5.  We are committed to GOING and living out the mission by inviting others to know the hope we’ve found in Jesus Christ. 

Jesus said in John 3:16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." 

The world is full of people who need to find the hope of eternal life through a relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe the church has been sent to be messengers of God’s love and hope to a broken, hurting, and lost world.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe what the Christian church has believed from its earliest beginning. The simplest summation of these beliefs can be found in the Nicene Creed.

NICENE CREED

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

Through Him all things were made.



For us and for our salvation

He came down from heaven,

By the power of the Holy Spirit

He became incarnate from the virgin Mary,

and was made man.


For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day He rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures;

He ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and His kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, 

Who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy *catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

* catholic refers to the universal Christian church
