Our Purpose--what we
do--and our Core Values--
how we do it--give definition to all our work, worship, and witness.
Our Purpose is TO KNOW JESUS and BLESS OUR COMMUNITY.
This means many things, but most importantly it means this: Knowing about Jesus is good; knowing Jesus is far better. The first is head knowledge, which results in more information; the second is heart knowledge, and results in transformation. It also results in action. Action is important because we believe that growth in a relationship with Jesus should always be in service to something bigger than ourselves.
Which brings us to blessing our community. Too often, it seems, Christianity focuses on the individual -- individual salvation, individual growth -- or on the church -- increasing membership, building bigger buildings. Those are (or can be) important. But we believe more important still, is putting our faith to work to make our community a better place for everyone.
