The mission of our church is simple - Go. Love. Live. We believe that God calls us to “go and make more disciples with Jesus Christ” (Matthew 28:19-20). We are a missional community. As we go to work, school, or shopping we bring with us the good news of the gospel, that Christ died for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3). Because of the gospel, we invest in people and invite them to know God personally. We live out the gospel in word and deed, faith in action (James 2:14-17). We also love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. When asked what the greatest commandment is, Jesus answered. “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). Our love for God is a response to his love for us. “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1 John 4:10). Because Christ died in our place, we surrender our lives to him. Our deep need for God leads us into a life of devotion. We delight in God as our greatest treasure and highest pleasure. We gather together every Sunday morning to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). We personally study the bible and pray to connect with our Heavenly Father. Finally, we live in freedom and community. In describing our relationship with God, the Apostle Paul wrote. “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Galatians 5:13 -14). Jesus Christ died to set us free. We are free from the consequences of our sin and free to live lives of character. We do not use our freedom to “do whatever we want.” Rather we serve one another in love. We live out our freedom in Christ by serving others with love. We gather in smaller community groups to study, pray and serve together. This is why we exist. This is who we are. We are a community of faith on mission with Jesus. We are here to Go. Love. Live.
