"Offering Hope - Sharing Jesus" 

MISSION

The mission of this church was refocused at the beginning of 2019. We believe that our mission statement summarizes who we believe God has called us to be.
We believe that God is calling us to be a people who are:

 

Offering hope - sharing Jesus


Fleshed out a bit it means that as a church we are seeking to:  

We value depending on God’s love and grace. We rest in our relationship with God because nothing else satisfies like God’s love 
(John 15:5 , John 10:10).

As beloved Children of God we value dying to our old sinful self and growing in our new life in Christ. We are committed grounding our lives in the bible and following the leading of God’s Holy Spirit because following Jesus changes everything 

(Romans 12:2, Colossians 3:1-17).

We value working together, using our gifts and abilities to create a caring, loving church community. We are committed to serving each other, being generous with our time and resources because life is better in loving church community 
(1 Cor 12:27,  John 13:15).
We value proactively sharing the message of Jesus in word and deed to everyone around us because there is no lasting hope without the saving message of Jesus.
(Matthew 5:14-16, Romans 1:16).
