Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psalm 29:2
We want to be a people who worship our holy God for who He is—our creator, provider, deliverer, redeemer—and for His atributes—His love, power, mercy, kindness, justice, patience—for He alone is worthy of our praise, adoration, and awe. We join for corporate worship and in small groups for praise and prayer and also in times of personal devotion. We desire our worship to be joyful, focused, and engaging, but reverent and humbly submissive.
Christ himself gave... pastors and teachers, to equip his people. Ephesians 4:11-12
God has chosen to make Himself known to man primarily through His wrtten Word, the Bible, which is without error in its original writings and has been preserved for us through the ages. His Word is living and powerful and able to change lives. The central purpose of our church is preaching and teaching the Word of God. We want to be learners and doers of God’s Word so that we can get to know Him personally, grow to be more like Jesus, be prepared for ministry, be confident in what we believe, and pass on truth to the next generation.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews:10:24
Though we are all different, we have the unique privilege of sharing common beliefs and goals, and God has united us together as one body in Christ. This profound relationship expresses itself in actively spending time together, joyfully serving one another, and faithfully building each other up in the faith. We also partner together with Jesus and with each other to use our varied spiritual gifts and discerning natural abilities to accomplish God’s will on earth and display His glory to the world.
Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Mark 16:15
We desire to share the good news with all people that they can have a personal relationship with the God who created them. We want to explain that our sin separates us from this holy God and leaves us deserving of eternal death. Because of His great love for us, God sent Jesus to take the wrath and punishment we deserve so that if we believe that Jesus took our place, we will be with God in heaven forever. Testifying to what God has done in our own lives, we want to share this truth, to family, to friends, to our community, and, through missionaries, to the whole world.
