Our Mission


Our mission as a church is to be “Building a Family in Christ to Reach Families for Christ”

We believe that healthy Christians reproduce healthy Christians, and healthy churches reproduce healthy churches.  We believe we honor God by being FRUITFUL, and in the life of our church we are intentionally committed to seeing that happen by valuing…


 F: Fellowship and unity of the body of Christ

1 John 1:2-3…the life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.


R: Revealed written Word of God

Hebrews 4:12…For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


U:  Unconditional love and acceptance in relationships

John 13:34-35…A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.


I: Intimacy with God through personal and corporate worship

Romans 12:1-2…Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.


T: Transformation of lives into the likeness of Jesus through prayer, evangelism, and discipleship

Matthew 28:19-20…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.


F: Faithfulness to God’s moral principles

Hebrews 12:1-2a…Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith…


U: Ultimate authority of Christ

Colossians 1:18…And he is the head of the Body, the church: he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.


L: Leading and empowerment of the Holy Spirit

Acts 1:8…But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you: and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
