We gather together to ENCOUNTER Jesus through worship, prayer, giving, and hearing God’s Word. We will demonstrate excellence with creativity for the purpose of inspiring people to respond to the person, passion, and purpose of Jesus. We will regularly celebrate the ordinances of baptism and communion. We will use a combination of expositional and topical preaching with the goal of glorifying Jesus and personal transformation. We want every Sunday to be a “can’t miss Sunday.”
We desire that everyone to ENGAGE with the community. To be in, with, and for our community. One way will be through home-based life groups that study sermon topics at a deeper level. We desire to help create intimate relationships who will regularly meet to study God’s Word, pray, and aid in transparency and accountability. These close relationships will focus on discovering truth, nurturing relationships, and affirming mission. Finally, we will be for the community by regularly looking for ways to serve our neighborhood schools, businesses, and organizations.
Within the context of community groups and intentional training classes, we want to help people discover and develop their gifting to live, love, learn, and lead. We will empower others to serve the church and the local and global community.
At the heart of our ministry will be EXPANDING God's kingdom by making and multiplying disciples (Matt. 28:19-20). We believe the work of pastors is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12). Discipleship is a process and life-long pursuit, and we want to give our people tools and frameworks that can easily be taught for the purpose of multiplication.
