Honoring God. Helping People.

This phrase, inspired by James 1:27, summarizes our purpose pretty succinctly. We desire above all to honor our Lord, Jesus Christ, with everything we say and do, as well as help those in need. We believe that this is what Jesus did, and what He is still doing today through churches and individuals. We believe that God created this world with a special purpose for humans: to know and love God as we are known and loved by him, and to thrive and flourish in his good world by living according to his ideals as taught in Scripture.

To accomplish this purpose, we acknowledge that we as a church are to continually make disciples of Jesus Christ, lovingly live and thrive in our society, carefully stand against the sin that corrupts it, and joyfully live out the good news about Jesus Christ whenever we can, both with our lives and with our words.

We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ is far more than a “ticket to heaven” or some sort of “escape hatch” after this life is over. No, we believe the Scriptures teach that salvation is just as much about how we live now, living in God’s good world in a way that brings him glory and intersects heaven and earth already. We believe that what we do matters today and forever, and this informs our purpose as a church.
