Our Mission

Love Jesus

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
– 1 John 4:10

We love Jesus because He first loved us.  A life of love for Jesus is a response to His love (2 Cor 5:14-15).  Has anyone ever loved you so selflessly that you could not help but love them in return?  As a community, we recognize that the gospel proclaims God’s love for us which produces in us a love for Him.

Cultivate Community

“For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself on new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.”
– Ephesians 2:14-16

We cultivate community because Jesus created a new community for us.  The gospel informs how we cultivate community.  The only reason we can know and love each other in deeply personal ways is because Christ’s death on the cross for sins destroyed the barrier that separated us from God and each other.  Jesus built a new community through His death and resurrection so that we have freedom in Christ to step into each other’s lives and help one another love Jesus.

Be Missionaries

“Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.’”
-John 20:21

We are missionaries because Jesus is a missionary. The only reason we can be sent out on mission for God is because God sent Jesus out on mission to save us. Being missionaries is not something professionals do in foreign lands, but being missionaries is ingrained in what it means to be a Christian. God is a missionary God who sends us out on mission in our city, nation and world to share the good news of Jesus.
