CONNECT

We exist that we might introduce Jesus to people, bringing them to Jesus, lifting up the name of Jesus so that He may draw all men to Himself. (John 1:35-42; Acts 1:8-11)

COMMUNITY

As our Triune God exists in perfect unity in the Godhead, we exist that we may live in community with fellow disciples, in order that we may follow the biblical example of living life together, being a community, care for one another, worshipping together corporately, being accountable to one another, and discovering and applying biblical truth together. (John 17:2-24; Acts 2:42)

COMMIT

We exist that we might ensure every follower of Jesus is committed to following Him, to live lives of faith and obedience to Him, to grow in Christlike character, knowledge, and holiness, to grow in our worship of Him, to love him fully with our heart, mind, soul, and strength, living lives of prayer and obedience. (Luke 5:27-28; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Luke 9:23; Luke 10:27)

CONTRIBUTE

We exist that we might encourage every follower of Jesus to see that the Holy Spirit has called us into the body of believers and have graciously gifted us to serve on another, to serve others, to love others, to contribute what God has graciously gifted us with our time, talent, and treasures. (John 12:26; Matthew 6:24; Romans 12:3-8)

COMMISSIONED

We exist to equip every follower of Jesus, having been commissioned by Him and empowered by the Holy Spirit, to continue making disciples. (Matthew 28:16-20; Ephesians 4:12-13)
