New International Version (NIV)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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.”
WHY ARE WE HERE?
Our vision is to connect people to the life-changing power of Christ Jesus.
True life-change only comes through the power of Christ Jesus and we are on a mission to show that in our community.
HOW DO WE DO THAT?
- Connect to God … we want you to experience God through worship and reading your Bible
- Connect to People … We want you to be involved in one of the various LifeGroups.
- Connect to Serving … we want you to use your gifts and talents to bring glory to God.
WHAT DO WE VALUE?
- The MESSAGE… we value God’s Word as the final authority
- We value EXCELLENCE and strive to give God our very best
- We value and seek to build authentic RELATIONSHIPS within the church and the community
- We value flexibility with our METHODS in order to impact our community the most effective way we can
- We value the mess. We know that life can be difficult and messy but we believe that Jesus wants to meet us in the middle of our mess, to transform us, and to allow for the mess we’ve been through to be our testimony for him.
IN ORDER TO STAY FOCUSED ON WHY WE ARE HERE, WE ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER WITH THESE FOUR CHALLENGES.
- We challenge believers to read the Bible daily
- We challenge believers to be active in a LifeGroup
- We challenge believers to continually use their talents to serve
- We challenge believers to naturally share their faith and to introduce a friend to Jesus each year.
