The goal of faith is love; learning to love God, ourselves, and our neighbors is our highest priority in the kingdom of God.
We acknowledge the supreme value of the truth revealed in the Bible, and our desire is to grow in our ability to both understand and apply its saving truth in our lives.
The Christian life sets us on a journey forward increasing integrity. By God's grace and transforming power, we desire for all the pieces of our lives to be brought together into the kind of wholeness and holiness that pleases God.
God continues to speak to issues and individuals today by the gifting of His Spirit in the church. We need and desire to hear the voice for the Spirit in our midst today.
The historic confessions of our faith acknowledge that humanity's great purpose is "to know God and glorify Him forever." Through our worship, we are expressing this purpose in the present tense, knowing that he is truly worthy of all the attention, affection, and honor we could ever offer him.
Our relationship with Jesus convinces us to not just believe the truth, but to also put His truth into practice in our lives. Active faith compels us to serve the continuing work of Jesus by embracing His ministry to the poor, the hurting, the sick, and the lost. Every person in the church has a part to play in this work by praying, giving, and serving in the strength of God and the gifts of His Spirit.
We recognize that we are just one small part of the larger gathering of Jesus' church in our community and across the earth. It is our desire to walk in real unity with one another and with believers everywhere as we serve Christ's cause.
