Sharing God’s Love with a Broken and Hurting World - Loving Him, Loving Others, Changing Lives
Sharing God’s Love
Matthew 28:18-20 “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”
With a Broken and Hurting World
John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Mark 12:30 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:31 “. . . Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Be Real. The Christian life is about Intimacy with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and grace-filled, transparent honesty with one another. We will create a climate of safety so that people feel secure physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Keep Moving. Every Christ follower is a minister and is called and gifted to serve. We will purposefully go to all people in every place in order to share this message: “God deeply loves you, accepts you ‘As Is’, and can/will change your life.”
Culture of Acceptance and Growth
Be Safe. All people are accepted as is because that’s the way God accepts us. As cultural farmers, we’ll cooperate with God to create a culture of acceptance where God’s grace can take root and change hearts. Acceptance and Growth happens in both corporate services and small groups. Life change, spiritual growth, and pastoral care happens best in the context of intimate relationships.
Biblically Accurate & Culturally Relevant
Keep it Legit. The unchanging message is communicated in understandable, creative, and compelling ways to engage our culture and build believers. We protect the health and unity of our church by balancing our purposes and biblical teachings. We say in essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love.
