WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST, LIVING LIFE TOGETHER SEEKING THAT ALL MAY LIVE THE ABUNDANT LIFE THAT JESUS PURCHASED FOR EACH ONE OF US ON THE CROSS.
WE LOVE GOD
WE LOVE EACH OTHER
WE LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS
The love of God is to be summed up in our fear and awe of him (Eccl. 12:13) and our passion towards him (Matt. 10:37-38) through obedience (1 John 5:2). We seek to worship Him with the lives we live. We will strive to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind. We will seek His wisdom and guidance through prayer, through His Word, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, and through His body.
We love and serve one another as we seek a real relationship with each other and our heavenly father through Jesus Christ. We know that God has a unique plan and purpose for everyone and that we need each other (Eph. 4:15-16). We look to comfort, encourage, and edify one another as each of us grows in our relationship with God the Father.
The best way to sum up love towards people biblically, is to understand it as John did, "We love because he first loved us" (1 John 4:19). We will not be an inward focused body of believers, but we will fulfill the great commission given to us by our Lord and Savior. We believe that Jesus not only calls us to come to Him, but to go for Him. Through our individual and corporate words and deeds, we will be a light in our community beckoning all men to come to Christ.
