THE GOSPEL • JESUS IS THE CENTER
From the preschool to the pulpit and everything in between, we are a church that is all about the gospel of Jesus and giving Him glory! The gospel (i.e. “good news”) is simply this: that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead showing Himself victorious over sin and death. Upon this profession He imputes His righteousness within us so that we are now looked on as blameless, sinless sons and daughters of the Most High God.
The gospel is the foundation for discipleship!
WORSHIP • WE LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST
Everyone everywhere is worshiping someone or something – it's in the DNA of who we are as humans created by God. We are called to eat, drink, speak, think, work – “whatever we do” (1 Corinthians 10:31) – in a way that gives glory to God. Worship, therefore, cannot be limited to a time and space. Worship is nurtured through the gatherings of the community of faith. Within these gatherings we worship God by devoting ourselves to preaching, teaching, singing, praying, reciting, and celebrating baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Each presents an opportunity to receive, remember, respond, and rejoice in the gospel of Jesus.
Worship is the fuel for discipleship!
COMMUNITY • WE DO LIFE TOGETHER
Since God is Triune – three persons living in perfect harmony as one – and we are made in His image, we must reflect that in how we live with others. Community involves way more than mere attendance and casual involvement; community involves mutual love, care, consistency and authenticity as we all transform more and more into the image of Jesus. Community can be messy, just like our sin messes up everything in our relationship with God; therefore, community allows us to practice the gospel of Jesus.
Community is the framework for discipleship!
SERVICE • SAVED PEOPLE SERVE PEOPLE
Jesus was the first person to introduce servant-leadership. In just one example in the New Testament, we observe the anointed King, the eternal Son of God, the blessed Lord washing the feet of His disciples – a task that was reserved for the lowest of the low. In this story Jesus gives us a humble example of servant-leadership to follow. If we are too big to serve, then we are too small to lead.
Service is the overflow of discipleship!
GROWTH • FOUND PEOPLE FIND PEOPLE
In simple words, Jesus commanded His disciples to “go and make disciples.” As we truly receive, remember, respond, and rejoice in the gospel, it is only natural that we extend the gospel to a lost and dying world. We multiply the kingdom of God by living with the purpose to make God known by helping people meet, know, and follow Jesus.
Growth is the fruit of discipleship!
