"In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation"
2 Corinthians 5:19
We truly believe that we can achieve much more together than apart. Since we have been reconciled back to God, in Christ, we are called to share that reality with others.
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
To reach people who aren't reached, you need to be creative and do what others aren't doing. We want to honor artists and their gifts as a valued offering in the church.
"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne"
We believe that the church should reflect its community. When it strives to truly have every tribe, nation, and person represented it is at its best.
"And the second is like it:
‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’"
Since we believe that it is truly "better to give than to receive," we have a bias toward action. One cannot love their neighbor without doing something about their needs.
Listen & Learn
"Let the wise hear and increase in learning and the one who understands obtain guidance"
We will be honest with what we believe with convicted civility. All the while, understanding that we don't know everything and learn something from every person and every situation.
