Our Mission

TO HELP PEOPLE KNOW GOD THROUGH

VITAL WORSHIP... DYNAMIC GROWTH... FAITHFUL SERVICE

Guiding Principles:

VITAL WORSHIP - The worship service, based on Scripture and prayer, is:
   1.  To be God-focused and Spirit-led, filled with praise and adoration
   2.  To relate to everyday life
   3.  To meet people where they are but not leave them there

DYNAMIC GROWTH - Dynamic growth involves two parts: teaching and personal growth,
both of which are based in Scripture and prayer. Dynamic growth helps us develop a hunger
for the Word. Dynamic growth causes us to love, to reach out and to help us be more like Jesus.
   1.  Teaching goals are:
         a) To lead people to faith in Jesus Christ
         b) To transform lives
   2.  Personal growth goals are:
         a) To deepen our walk with Jesus
         b) To become a life-long learner
         c) To discern God's will for our lives

FAITHFUL SERVICE - Faithful service is based on Scripture and prayer
as we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
   1.  To preach the transforming Good News of Jesus Christ
   2.  To demonstrate Jesus' love both within and outside the church
   3.  To pursue opportunities to discover physical and spiritual needs
   4.  To define and meet the needs of individuals all in God's name and for His glory
