To honor God by creating balanced, life-giving environments that Inspire Transformed Lives.
PEOPLE WITH A PURPOSE:
Purpose answers the questions Why are we here? What are we called to do? Our primary purposes are:
• Exalting the Lord. This means putting Him first in our lives and celebrating our love for Him together in Scriptural ways. Since we each exist to worship Him (Ephesians 3:21, Revelation 4:8-11), joyful praise and whole-hearted worship are at the heart of our purpose as a church.
• Empowering Believers. If the church is to impact the world, believers must be continually changed from their former patterns of life to new lives that please Him. The church is a place where people are empowered, inspired and trained to live in the newness of the Christian life (Ephesians 4:7-17).
• Extending the Kingdom of God. Apart from Christ, people are lost in the darkness of sin. They need the clear light of the
Gospel message and the saving, healing and delivering love of God. The church exists to bring this Good News to people everywhere (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:47-48, John 20:21, Acts 1:8)
We exist to encourage men, women and children to come to Jesus and grow stronger in faith. By meeting together regularly, we seek to exalt the Lord Jesus in worship, edify believers in fellowship, and extend the Good News to a hurting and broken world.
