The Big Picture
We all tend to think we’re here to carve out the best possible life for ourselves, right here and now, but that’s a lie. But the problem isn’t that we’re thinking too big. The fact is, that goal is way too small. We were made for more.
God didn’t create us to indulge ourselves, but to reflect his image—and to spread it everywhere. To tell the world that he is King over all, and to show what a good King he is. Our personal kingdoms are tiny and temporary. God’s Kingdom is infinite and eternal. Which do you think is a better investment for your life?
Our Part in That Picture
Our small church is just one small piece of that picture, but Jesus sent his Spirit to empower us for our part in it. We work to spread the gospel message that Jesus is King. He offers forgiveness to all who turn from rebellion against him to trust and hope in him alone. And we work to encourage believers to follow Jesus. That job is for all of us, not just the pastors.
We believe that God can use ordinary people like us as his instruments to accomplish extraordinary tasks. We pray that God’s Spirit would enable us to spread the gospel, strengthen & equip disciples, train pastors, and plant churches both in our region and in cities across the globe.
How We Do It
We don’t organize a lot of programs or events designed to build our church’s visibility in the community. Those things can be useful, but we focus first on helping everyone know how to open the Word of God, then point people to Christ and their need for him. We want our whole church to be able both to encourage our brothers and sisters to follow Christ, and to introduce unchurched people to his grace. That’s our mission. King Jesus gave it to us. So we need to get on with it.
