Our purpose as a church is to: Love God, Love People and Make Disciples.
This short little phrase, contains so much. It is based upon many scriptures throughout all of scripture. Specifically it is based upon two passages commonly called the "Great Commandment" and the "Great Commission."
The Great Commandment
Matthew 22:36-40 ESV
36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 40 "On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
The Great Commission
Matthew 28:19-20 ESV
19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
All we do as a church: staffing, programming, organizing, promoting, teaching, budgeting, building, ministering, missions...all we do, goes through the filter of this simple phrase:
Love God | Love People | Make Disciples
Our desire is to be a church that not only says this, but is known for doing what it says
