We believe the Bible is clear that our purpose as individuals & as a church, is to pursue our joy in the glory of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To make and equip disciples of Jesus Christ who KNOW God personally through His Word (the Bible),who GROW in their relationship with God and with others through intentional fellowship and discipleship, and who GO and serve God in joyful and glad obedience by sharing the message of His glory, gospel, and Kingdom through a lifestyle of ministry and love in our homes and community, in our region, state, nation, and around the world.
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY “THE GOSPEL” ?
By “Gospel”, we mean the good news that because of the great mercy & love of God, we- a sinful people who have made ourselves enemies of God, & because of our sin deserve His wrath- we can be made right with God by turning away from a life of following our own sinful desires (even if the world/culture around us finds them acceptable) & instead turn to Christ, trusting in Him alone- that His perfect life, substitutionary death, & literal, bodily resurrection was sufficient to pay the penalty for our sin & makes us righteous before God so that we can rejoice in him & enjoy him forever! (Romans 5:1-2, 6-11; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
