WELCOME, EMPOWER, SERVE

 

MISSION STATEMENT

 

WELCOME

As disciples of Jesus Christ, led by the Holy Spirit, we endeavor to welcome all with sincerity and Christ-like love, as they enter this fellowship.  We will welcome and accept them as part of Christ’s family.  We invite them to experience God’s presence, the power of God’s living word, and share their gifts to full fill God’s call.  We seek to be a Christ-centered family who welcome all who enter with newness, openness, and freshness to embrace old and emerging traditions.

 

EMPOWER

Through intentional and creative discipleship, guided by the Holy Spirit, we seek to empower the people of God to maturity and unity in the knowledge of Christ (Eph 4:13, James 1:4, Heb 5:12-14, Col 1:28, 1 John 2:5, 1 Peter 2:3, 2 Tim 2:15).  We do this to that we may exemplify Christ and pass the torch/mantle of faith and obedience from generation to generation. (Heb 12:1-2)

 

SERVE

As a church family we continually discover the gifts of ministry given by the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:3-8, 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4:1-13, 2 Timothy 1:6-7, Hebrews 2:1, 3-4, 1 Peter 4:7-11).  Desiring obedience to Christ by following his example, we seek to reveal and build God’s Kingdom as we identify and respond to the spiritual, emotional and physical, needs of people (verses of Jesus caring for people to be added, Good Samaritan, Prodigal son, feeding of multitude, healing of leper,  James 2:12-18).
