It is our desire to model Jesus to a world in need of hope. In everything He did, Jesus was authentic. His love for people was true. He spoke boldly when He needed to and showed patience and compassion to hurting people. In the same manner, our community of faith is
authentic. We have a true love for those that God loves. We speak boldly and we demonstrate patience and compassion with all.
The message of Jesus is timeless and transformational. Culture and society will change. We will remain relevant to the culture while not compromising the life-giving truth found in the words of
Scripture. We will be in the world, we will not be of the world. We are be swayed by fads and trends but we recognize the need to relate to our communities. As Paul writes, “…I have become
all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.”
It’s important to spend time alone with God, soaking up His Word. But He didn’t intend for us to live in isolation. He specifically designed us to crave—and thrive in—relationship with others. We’re our best selves when we’re experiencing life’s highs and lows with other believers. That
means everyone, whether you’re single or married, needs community. Community is encouraging. Community fosters love, happiness, fun, and joy. Community laughs and weeps together. Community is life-giving.
