Our Six Main purposes

 

Worship - Romans 12:1-2

  •      Our first and greatest command from God is to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Worship is not a song, it is a lifestyle lived to the Glory of God.

Prayer - Luke 18:1

  •      It is up to the church to pray for God's will on the earth. It is out of time spent with God that great things for the Kingdom are accomplished. It is through prayer that God builds His Church.

Fellowship/Connect - 1 Corinthians 12:12

  •      The church is a community of believers. It is a family- loving together and caring for one another. We are a body with many members; every member of the church needs the other members. God uses each of us to supply something to someone else.

Discipleship - Matthew 28:19-20

  •      Foundational to all that is done in the church is the Word of God. The Word of God builds and equips believers to be and to do what God desires. It is His Word that helps us remain in Him.

Evangelism - Mark 16:15-18, Acts 1:8

  •      The church is called to let people know of God's good news for the world. The church is called to heal the sick, deliver the oppressed and set the captive free. We have the answer to the world's problems and we must share Him. The purpose of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is the power to witness. All we do in worship, prayer, fellowship, and teaching is preparation for evangelism. God gave Jesus because He loves the world.

Servant-hood - Matthew 20:26-28

  •      We believe that every disciple is a minister. Each Christian is equipped by God with certain gifts and talents that are meant to be shared with the local church and with the world. To be great in God's Kingdom we are to be the servant of all. We are to humble ourselves in ministry by selflessly sharing and giving our life in strategic service. 

 




Our Core Values

Our approach and motive for ministry:

Hebrews 2:1 - Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.

 

Christ at the center - The Lordship of Jesus Christ. He must be the center of our purpose. He must be the center of our worship. He must be the center of our preaching and teaching. He must be the center of our ministry. He must be the center of our outreach. He must be the center of our relationships. He must be the center of our loving and our living. Ephesians 1:22-23

Extravagant Faith - To fully believe and trust God in all we do and in all He asks us to do. That God speaks to us, gives us direction and will lead us in successful results and provision. Hebrews 11: 1 & 6

Transformation not just information - To help Christians become mature Disciples of Christ, that are compassionate and bold. To build believers into the image of Christ, so that we are a people of healing, boldness,wholeness, and righteousness. We believe in the authority of the written Word of God and indoctrinal purity. Hebrews 4:12-16

Atmosphere of Love - Everyone is valuable and valued. Each person is to be treated with the same grace that Jesus abundantly expresses to us. To be a church where lifelong friends are made. Where we become a family, connected to one another and that can always enlarge our circle of love. We are committed to authentic community. John 13:35

The Empowerment of the Spirit - We are committed to the full supernatural equipping of the Holy Spirit to lead us in life and in ministry, realizing that apart from Him we are unable to do anything of significant eternal value. We expect the miraculous and supernatural to be a normal experience in the personal and corporate life of the church. Acts 1:8, Luke 4:18-19, John 15:5

Health not just Growth - Healthy organisms grow naturally. Saved, healed, restored, and empowered servant leaders will naturally reproduce the life of God in others. Acts 2:46-47

Stewardship - Our resources are to be used for eternal purposes. This includes our spiritual gifts, talents, abilities, time and finances. Matthew 6:20-21a

Creativity - The method not message is sacred. We should seek to use all God honoring methods to communicate the timeless message of the Word of God. 1 Corinthians 9:22b

Compassionate Ministry - Reaching and touching the lives beyond the four walls of the physical church building. Meeting genuine needs or hurts to restore each person and love them to Christ. Matthew 9:36-38, Matthew 25:40

Excellence in Ministry - Everything we do should be done well and to the best of or abilities. Excellence honors God, reflects His character and inspires people. We will be accountable, pay attention to details and refuse to accept just "good enough".
1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:23
