The Five Purposes of Our Church
The purpose of this congregation shall be to glorify God through
joyful worship, encouraging the body of believers, serving others,
understanding Scripture, and sharing Christ with the world.
Joyful Worship… We worship God through song, prayer, and personal testimony led by our Praise Team. God’s Word teaches that, “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” (Psalm 100:2)
Encouragement for Believers… We encourage each other through personal relationships, special events, and potlucks. We also encourage one another by carrying “each others’ burdens” (Gal. 6:2), praying for each other (Col. 1:10), and spurring “one another on toward love and good deeds” (Heb. 10:24)
Service to Others… We look for opportunities to serve our neighbors. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works…” (Eph. 2:10). We meet needs through a variety of ministries, including our annual food drive, pre school cooperatives, ministry to the homeless, support for teen moms, and several children’s programs throughout the year.
Understanding Scripture… We teach God’s Word through sermons, Children’s Church, small group Bible studies, and our children and youth programs. We want to be like the early Christians who put an emphasis on understanding Scripture. As Col 3:16 says, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…”
Sharing Christ with the World… Jesus commanded us to: Go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:19). We financially support a number of evangelical ministries and missionaries. For more information, please see our missions page.
