Why do we do what we do?
Our ultimate purpose is to bring glory to God by functioning as the “body of Christ.” As we do this we also fulfill two specific purposes relating to God's plan for the earth: (1) evangelism to non-believers and (2) encouragement for believers. (Php 1:11; 1Co 12:27; Mt 28:19; 1Co 14:26)
NOTE: Among other things, the church is also known as the bride of Christ and the living temple of the true God. Obviously, the church is not a building, a meeting place, an organization, or a denomination. The church is the totality of all believers in Christ, regardless of denomination or meeting place. The entire body of believers is the church, and as such, the church is the dwelling place of God.
What do we believe?
We believe that in the great commandments that Jesus spoke when asked:
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
We believe that God's house is a house of prayer for all nations.
We believe that God is bigger than any of the storms in our lives.
