Our purpose statement is an extension of our church vision.
The purpose of our church is to glorify God in making disciples. To do this biblically, we, as a church, seek to live out the Great Commandment and to fulfill the Great Commission. Our ministry, therefore, exists for the purpose of
- Loving God
- Loving each other
- Making disciples and teaching them to obey God.
These three expressions of our purpose are summarized in three priorities:
Priority 1 – A progressive commitment to Jesus Christ. This focuses on all areas of loving God.
Priority 2 – A progressive commitment to the Body of Christ. This focuses on our involvement in Christ’s church and on all areas of loving our neighbor.
Priority 3 – A progressive commitment to the work of Christ in the world. This focuses on being a witness of Christ. This includes evangelism, acts of mercy, and any aspect of being salt and light in our community and world.
Our philosophy of ministry is an outworking of our vision and purpose statements.
