Love God • Live in Community • Make Disciples of Jesus
Pursuing a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
We receive His extravagant love first, and then respond by loving Him back with all that we are! We are learning to encounter God by acknowledging His presence continually. It is our desire to daily burn with passion for Jesus by devoting ourselves to God’s Word, whole-hearted worship, and prayer. Our new identity is found in Christ where we are learning to walk by the Spirit in the unforced rhythms of grace, not religious performance. His perfect love compels us to live a lifestyle of radical obedience from the inside-out.
Exodus 33:11, Mark 12:28-31, Psalm 16:11, John 15:1-17, 1 John 4:19
LIVE IN COMMUNITY
Living life together as family.
We are devoted to God and one another. We meet in Jesus’ name to worship, enjoy friendship with one another, and purposefully live out the Bible side by side. We value authenticity; where we open up about our weaknesses, pray for our needs, and encourage one another with scripture. We commit to selfless love, serving with no strings attached. We are also learning to bless one another with our resources through generous giving and receiving. We are each growing in our unique spiritual gifts, becoming a unified local church advancing the Kingdom together.
Acts 2:42-47, Gal. 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 1 John 1:1-5, Col. 3:12-17
MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS
Do the Kingdom and take someone with you.
We will change the world through discipleship; committing to being fathers and mothers to the next generation. We’re inviting others to “come along” as we pursue a passion for Jesus and His purposes in the earth. We are committed to sharing the gospel; using our words and talents to invite others into His Kingdom. We are committed to both bless the poor and to represent the diversity of our community in our congregation. Like ancient Antioch in the book of Acts, we’re becoming an epicenter of church-planting churches from Knox to the nations!
