Love God – We strive to love God with all our heart, soul and mind (Matt. 22:37). Loving God means worship, both by meeting with other Christians to worship God, and outside our worship services, in a daily lifestyle of love and respect for all.

Love Each Other – We strive to love other people to the best of our ability (Matt. 22:39); not with empty words or speech but with action and in truth (1 John 3:18).

Serve as Jesus Served – We strive to live a lifestyle that is consistent with the calling of Jesus Christ.  A life of loving, suffering servanthood unto the world is the example we see in Christ; is the model we strive to follow.

We want to become a group of believers who truly make a difference in the lives of our members, their families and friends, this community, and throughout the world.  We strive for an atmosphere of love, hospitality, community, and belonging to characterize this community of believers so much that outsiders are drawn to want more — not just to learn more, but to be more involved and to understand that an active life of following Jesus is an exhilarating life of loving action by participating in the Kingdom of God that Christ came and established.

Although we will never have all the answers, we will put those answers we do have into action.  That action will be clothed in grace and compassion and a sincere desire for unity and peace.  Unity in Christ will prevail over the diversity of gender, race, age, economic status, education level, or any other artificial barrier that would hinder God’s plan for this community of believers.  We will be family — authentic people with love and compassion for one another.  We will remain so awestruck by our redemption that traditions, opinions and personal comforts will never get in the way of our true calling — to love God and to love people.

Many of us are new to church, some are investigating the Christian faith, and others have been following Jesus for several years.  Our stories and backgrounds may differ, but we are united in our conviction that Jesus died for our sins, that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).  These events are the center of everything we believe and practice.  They compel us to pursue Jesus and look to His life and teachings as the blueprint for how to be fully alive.  We do not believe that we are better than anyone else.  We do believe that God has richly blessed us beyond what we deserve, and we are very thankful for that.

With God’s ever-present help, we carry out His commission to make disciples in our homes, neighborhoods, and throughout the nations.  The bottom line about us is that we are a family of imperfect people who are learning what it means to follow Jesus.
