We are a worshiping community of Jesus Christ
Together being shaped by the Gospel
Rooted in God’s Word, to Share God’s Grace and Truth
Founding in 1974
You are the Bride of Christ (Eph. 5:25-27). With Christ as the groom, he sets his bride apart and cleanses her from sin, shame and guilt to present her to himself in splendor. It’s the word of God that refines and adorns His people. From this identity, it’s important that we continue to deepen our love for God, making it a priority to gather together regularly and grow in the knowledge of our Lord.
You are the Church (Matt. 16:18). With Christ as the one who is calling, he gives each one of us a purpose, a mission. The church belongs to Jesus and it is on the move in our world! We are to be a city on a hill, the light of the World. We are to be a church both gathered together, and a church scattered throughout our neighborhoods, schools and workplaces on a mission to share the Gospel with those around us to the end of the world. From this identity, it’s important that we look out for the lost and wounded sheep and call them back to relationship to God through Jesus.
You are the Family of God (John 1:11-13, 1 Timothy 5:1-3, Mark 3:21-35). With Christ as our Father, we belong together in the family of God that is both intergenerational and multicultural. We are spiritually connected to each other no matter our background and have a responsibility to care for and invest in one another. There is an invitation to belong, to authentic relationships and discipleship if you belong to the family of God. From this identity, it’s important that we are intentionally investing in relationships with those around us, making disciples of Jesus living life together and in smaller groups.
You are the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:1-11). With Christ as our head, we form the Body of Christ each with different skills and giftings. We need every member to function in its strengths to build the body up. From this identity, it’s important that every member finds a place to serve no matter how young or old, in Christ we all have important work to do!
