The Mission

“Helping people joyfully make Jesus Christ their treasure!”

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
Matthew 13:44

We believe that the greatest gift God could give us is Himself!  And He does so through Jesus Christ!  When we SEE God for who He truly is, and truly come to KNOW God,  He begins to SATISFY our hearts like nothing else can!  He also gives us real PURPOSE:  to love others.

Therefore, our jobs are to relentlessly ENJOY God and to spend the rest of our lives helping others do the same!

The Vision

“A vibrant church where people are joyfully treasuring Jesus, genuinely loving each other, actively reaching the people in their “world” and around the world, and are being passionately equipped to do the work of the ministry.”

When we close our eyes real tight, this statement comprises what we see! We want you to feel at home in our church, and know that you are a valued part of our church.

References

 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds[a] and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,  so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
