Our Church’s Vision
We seek to be followers of Jesus Christ in the 21st Century. We encourage every church member and frequent attendee to . . .
- Make worship a weekly priority
- Pursue personal spiritual development
- Make sacrificial service to others routine
Learning How to Do Life Together
We strive to know Jesus Christ, to actively love him in response to his deep love for us. We aim to create a gracious community where people are free to openly struggle with their convictions, free to respect differences in faith perspectives, and free to receive and give the love of God. We seek to find God in every part of our lives. We are dedicated to lifting up the Gospel of Jesus Christ as our template for meaning and direction in all aspects of life.
The Intention of Our Church
We believe that God works in and through people. God calls every believer to be a minister in the world by equipping us with spiritual gifts that emerge, grow and mature in community. We come together for discipleship that is rooted in faith, shaped in relationship, and expressed in action as we work out our calling in every area of our lives.
The Bible and the Holy Spirit
We strongly encourage biblical study and reflection. We seek to be open to the subtle and hidden work of the Holy Spirit, believing that our own growth in spiritual maturity will engage our hearts, unite our efforts, and summon our resources in making the world a better place.
Engagement with the World
We offer year-round mission giving to denominational offerings, local and international charities, youth sponsored mission trips, and yearly visits from missionaries and Christian social workers. We seek to be agents of Christ’s love to people outside our church walls and beyond our familiar borders.
