This is Christ's church.

Purpose Statement and Five Guiding Principles

Purpose Statement: “We are called to welcome all through our words and actions, sharing the love of Christ and the Gospel made known through the word of God.”
Five Principles:
1. Jesus is Lord and Savior.
2. Share God’s love with all people.
3. We are to be God’s servants to the world – (addressing injustice and struggles that are social, moral, economic and legal.)
4. We are all ministers of the Gospel and we encourage others to be the same.
5. We are to continue growing in our faith, offering opportunities for learning, joyful worship, and opportunities for service.

We believe that it is absolutely vital that every Christian should be in a right relationship with Jesus, knowing Him intimately, so that we can introduce Him to the unbeliever. We believe our mission is make Christ's identity as the savior of the world known to everyone.

In order to do so we strive to become more like Jesus, although we cannot expect to achieve His perfection in this life, but we try to reflect Him in all we say and do. Just as Jesus provided for people's physical, mental and spiritual needs; we strive to serve our community and reflect His loving nature. Our work for the kingdom of God depends upon the power of our Lord Jesus who lives and works in and through each member of our congregation.

We urge you to join us in our walk with Christ, have fellowship with believers in Christ, and make the journey of growth that develops the Christian perspectives through the disciplines of prayer, study and meditation upon the word of God. Paul tells us that "he who has set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach Him among the Gentiles" (Gal.1:15). He goes on to state the principle by which he preaches Christ to the gentiles (those who are outside the true kingdom): "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me" (Gal.2:20).Join us in spreading God's word with the power of Jesus Christ living and working in and through you.
