We believe in glorifying God by…
We were made to glorify God through our hearts and actions.
…everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:7
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that[a] they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matt. 5:16
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corin. 10:31
Amplifying our relationship with God.
We believe in prioritizing our love for God above all.
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. Deuteronomy 6:5
We believe in continuously receiving God’s sanctifying grace and mercy growing into Christlikeness.
23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. 1 Thess. 5:23-24
We believe God is endlessly increasing and multiplying our intimacy and love for Him.
9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Phil. 1:9-11
Building our relationships as a church family.
We believe in the priority of loving one another displayed through kindness, bearing one another’s burdens through the unity of the Holy Spirit.
2 …with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:2-3
We believe in loving each other as Christ loved us redeeming us through service and sacrifice.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. John 15:12-13
We believe in speaking grace, truth and love to each other, as we are connected to each other for we are connected to Christ.
15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:15-16
We believe in doing good works for each other, daily building our relationships with each other through prayer, worship, study, friendships, discipleship, encouragement and accountability.
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
Cultivating relationships in our local and global communities.
We believe that all believers have the responsibility and the privilege to share the good news of Jesus Christ with anybody and everybody.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear with someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:14-15
We believe that God has placed our church in this particular location for a specific purpose to reach and cultivate those relationships in our community.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
We believe that God desires us to take the gospel message beyond our immediate area, to reach and cultivate those relationships around the world.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. Psalm 96:3
