"More than just doing church... Being Church."
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Jesus (Matt 28:19-20)
With this, we hope to intentionally point people toward the God-given identity of what it means to be the Church. We will emphasize this identity through our 4-core expectations of Connect, Grow, Serve, Reach --> Connect: We belong to each other, Our identity in Christ MUST include the community of faith... this is God's design Grow: It is God's biblical expectation that we grow in our depth, knowledge of, and obedience to God's expectation for us as His people Serve: God has given us gift and talents for His purpose and use, this purpose is to edify His Church in order to effectively share the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a cohesive and healthy Body of Christ Reach: We are not the "holy huddle", we have been given the message of reconciliation and hope... and we are COMMANDED by God to share this with our world--His Church must be equally effective outside the walls of our worship building just as much as inside those walls.
