Our mission is simple: We exist to pursue the glory of God in worship, fellowship, and outreach.
Pursuing the glory of God – Many people talk about glorifying God, but what does it mean? At the most basic level, glorifying God means giving to Him the honor He deserves and requires. While this is a fairly simple statement, the truth is extremely far reaching and completely life-changing. God created all things for His glory (Col 1:16), directs all things for His own glory (Eph 1:11), will free creation for His glory (Rom 8:18-21), and will remake all things for His own glory (Rev 21:2-3, 22:3-5). Do you seek this glory with your life?
Worship – Everything we do as a church is worship centered, but what is worship? First and foremost, it means serving God in His special presence, which we believe is in His church. This is central to our existence because it is central to God’s plan for the world. Jesus captured it best when He said, “The hour is coming, and now is, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24). For that reason we strive to keep our worship simple and reverent when we gather as a body. This results in transformed lives as we go out and worship God day to day.
Fellowship – Fellowship with the true God is the greatest need of every single person on this planet, including you. We were created to enjoy a relationship with God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but that was lost because of sin. The good news is that through the death and resurrection of Jesus, we can have that fellowship restored. But no one is saved to enjoy this alone. The church has fellowship with God as a group, or as the Bible says, as a body. This fellowship with God is the basis for all true fellowship with other people. For that reason, we also seek to enjoy our relationship with Him in our families and as individuals. This is how our weekly worship informs our daily worship.
Outreach – Jesus’ last words to His church left us with a mandate for missions (Mt 28:18-20). We seek to obey His words not simply to make our church get bigger, but to make His glory shine brighter. In his book Let the Nations be Glad, John Piper wrote, “Missions is not the ultimate goal of the Church. Worship is. Missions exist because worship doesn’t. Worship is the ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man.” Our outreach to the lost and broken of this world, therefore, is motivated by our desire to see people come and worship their God. Are you a worshiper of God or are you still a mission field? Make God ultimate in your life and become a worshiper.
We warmly invite you to come visit us and experience the life-transforming power of the God we worship.
