Vision and Purpose
To be an expanding community of Christ followers, pursuing life to the fullest. (John 10:10)
GO. GROW. GIVE. … This purpose helps direct us in planning for the future, making decisions, recruiting, delegating, resolving conflict, preventing conflict, leading us through crisis, and in letting people know who we are.
We are committed to GO TO THOSE WHO ARE FAR FROM GOD
Everyone Counts: We believe that everyone counts. We want to see people come to understand that God loves and desires to have a relationship with them. Therefore, we will go to meet them where they are, we will invite them to explore a relationship with Jesus and we will welcome them to our church. (James 2:1-9)
We are committed to GROW IN A DEEP RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND DEVELOP GENUINE RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
Deep Relational Growth in God with Purpose: We want everyone to experience a deep and passionate love relationship with God, so we will pursue practices that are designed to deepen that relationship. See Phil. 1:6
Genuine Relationship through Community: We believe that spiritual growth happens best in the context of a small group. Therefore, we will actively pursue everyone, so that all may experience a loving small group community. (Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 12)
We are committed to GIVE OUR LIFE AWAY
Seeking the Joy-filled Life in Jesus: Jesus came to give us a joy-filled, purpose filled life and to experience life the way He intended. (John 10:10, 15:11)
We believe that people can only experience the abundant life that Jesus intended when they begin to GIVE their lives away.
Equipped for Ministry: Our plan is to help every person discover God’s point for their lives so they are equipped for service and ministry. Finding a place to serve is key component to experiencing the abundant life that Jesus came to give. (Ephesians 4:3)
