OUR MISSION STATEMENT

 

 

LOVE GOD FOLLOW JESUS DO OUR PART

 
We seek to love God:
Matthew 22:36-38 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: "’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.”
 
follow Jesus:
Jesus repeatedly called for people to “Follow me” (see Matthew 4:19, 8:22, 9:9, 10:38, 16:24; Mark 1:17, 10:21; John 1:43, 10:27, 12:26, 21:19, 21:22)
 
do our part:
1 Peter 4:10   “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”   (1 Corinthians 12:7, Genesis 12:2)
 
 
We will fulfill this mission by…
 
v     Loving God: We will love God by expressing it in words of praise (worship); giving gifts to God (offerings and helping the “least of these” (Matthew 25:40); spending time with God through prayer and study of the Bible; and treating God as He should be treated, which includes seeking to obey His commands (1 John 5:3)
