Jesus said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19

Jesus said to his disciples, “Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19

 

The following values are a summary of how we live out Christ’s mission as an actively serving, disciple-making community: Acts 2:41-47 ESV

Worship- Connecting with God: In personal times of prayer and devotion, and also in corporate weekly gatherings, we seek to love God with all of our heart mind, soul, and strength.  As people created in God’s image, we were made to worship Him, and our hearts find their greatest satisfaction in coming before God’s throne in worship.

Instruction- Welcoming God’s Word: The foundation for our life in Christ is God’s Word as expressed in the Old and New Testaments. We come before God with a posture of learning and applying His truth to our daily lives.  God’s word is inerrant, infallible, and trustworthy.

Fellowship- Investing in Others: Fellowship (koinonia in Greek) refers to the common spiritual life that Gods people share.  Rather than coming to church as “consumers”, expecting to have our needs met, we seek to invest in one another’s lives.  This means actively loving one another in practical ways, showing hospitality, and sacrificing for one another.

Evangelism- Sharing Christ’s Message: Every Christian is called by God to share the message of forgiveness, reconciliation, and new life in Jesus.  God places each one of us in different spheres of relationships and influence so that we can share Christ in a unique way.  We look for needs in our community, build relationships, and share Christ as the Holy Spirit brings opportunity.
