The purpose of this church is to glorify the God of the Scriptures in promoting His worship, evangelizing sinners, and edifying saints. To this end we are committed to our vision of being a kingdom-minded, Christ-exalting, multigenerational community of faith.
1. Kingdom-minded - We are committed to the extension of the kingdom of God through the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ to all mankind. We commit to forwarding this proclamation to those as near as our neighbors and as far as the ends of the earth. As God should bless the going forth of his gospel through the conversion of sinners we commit to building his kingdom through the comprehensive discipleship of those same converts and the planting of new churches.
2. Christ-exalting - We gather as a church because we have been redeemed by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and we gather for the express purpose of exalting our Savior. He is the head of the church and the center of all we do as his chosen people. When we gather our worship is directed at him alone. We seek to conform to Scripture in all things and to exalt Christ in our singing, prayer, reading, and preaching. We also commit to showing him forth through the scriptural practice of baptism and the Lord’s supper.
3. Multigenerational - The Church is not a gathering of people from a single age or interest group. One aspect of the gathered people of God is that they represent people from all ages and levels of Christian maturity. In our gathering together we seek to follow the commands and example of Scripture with the younger and more immature looking to the wisdom and example of those who are older and wiser. Likewise the older and more mature believers are not to sit comfortable in their own faith and life but are to seek by both instruction and example to disciple those who follow them in the commands of our Lord.
4. Community of faith - We seek to live as Christ has instructed us, not as individual Christians pursuing Christ all on our own, but as a gathered community and family of faith wherein we honor our Lord by loving one another. As such we seek to be involved with one another in our daily lives and to encourage one another toward ever-growing godliness and holiness.
