"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." (1 Peter 2:7)
The grace of God propels us forward to bring healing, grace, hope, and renewal. As the gospel transforms us inwardly, we will see a natural overflow of love and service within, and beyond, our church. As Jesus was sent into the world by his Father, we want to be a church that is continually sent on mission to be a witness of Jesus' grace and redemptive work.
We desire to be a church who continually pushes against a "consumer" mentality and embraces a philosophy that sees every Christian as a vital participant in what God is doing in our church and community. This will require time, patience, sacrifice, and, Lord willing, will produce a great amount of joy.
