Our Mission is simple:
“Grow in Faith, Serve People, Together!”
We believe that the best way to accomplish this mission is to to build real, honest relationships with others.
As we connect with others we experience the power of TOGETHER!
TOGETHER we can GROW IN FAITH as we learn from one another
TOGETHER we can more effectively SERVE PEOPLE both inside of the church and outside of the church following the example of Christ.
You might say that our strategy is all about the CONNECTIONS we make that allow us to experience life TOGETHER!
We see three levels of CONNECTIONS in the life of Jesus:
- He connected with the crowds that followed him and had compassion on them (Mark 6)
- He connected with His companions (the disciples) in a special way, and lived life with them daily
- He connected more intimately with His core followers, “the disciple Jesus loved”, and several other disciples from his inner circle who were special to Him (John 13,19 & 20; Mark 14:32;9:2 )
We too need Connections with the crowd (the whole church body) for times of celebration and influence, our companions (a small group of some kind) for growth and service, and some core friends with whom we can share our lives more deeply.
