Connecting, Equipping, and Sending
We exist so people can have genuine, authentic relationships with one another. We want relationships that are deeper than just Sunday morning. This means knowing others and being known by them. Often times, we can be good at telling our own story, but poor at asking others to share theirs. Or we can ask others about their lives, but shy away from telling of our own struggles. We desire a church where we are actively pursuing both.
Most importantly, we exist so people can be connected to the Lord. We strive to be a place where individuals recognize the kingship of Jesus, grow in relationship with Him, and then flourish through that relationship. This means creating an environment where all people, no matter where they are in life, can either begin or deepen their faith in Christ.
We exist so people will be equipped to live the lives God calls them to live. We do this by teaching the Bible, which is the perfect, infallible, inerrant Word of God. It teaches us who God is, what He has done, and how we are to respond. We believe the Bible speaks into all areas of our life, providing direction, correction, and encouragement. To know the Word of God is to be equipped to respond to and engage with the world He created.
The best, most effective witnesses in this world are those who are connected and equipped -- those who are known, loved, and who know God’s Word. When people are connected and equipped, they begin to love their neighbors as themselves, sharing with others the reason for their hope in Christ.
