And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20
Our focus, our primary purpose, is to see souls saved through the glorification of Jesus Christ as Lord. We desire to see lives changed and transformed via a personal relationship with Jesus as people’s personal Lord and Savior. We want to fulfill the Great Commission that Jesus issued His disciples found in Matthew We have witnessed again and again the miraculous transforming power of Jesus in the lives of so many people. We hope to open the doors to those who are searching and seeking to know God and understand His great love for them.
We do this by proclaiming, preaching, teaching the Gospel of Peace via church services and various other outreach ministries. We hope to be creative in this approach as well, looking to all areas and walks of life to set up ministries to reach out to those who are searching for the way to go. There are so many people out there looking for the way to follow, they are seeking “truth” and searching for the meaning of Life in general. We believe all that they are looking for can be found in Jesus. He Himself said this:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
We desire to show people the way back to God through Jesus and believe He is all we need in this unpredictable world around us.
Our secondary focus is to build up and equip those who have already made that decision to follow Jesus, in order to strengthen them, so they can fulfill their destiny in Him. We all have a role and a part to play in shinning of that light and love of Jesus to others. We are called to grow and be productive in our faith. So we desire to: Build up, Send out, Reach out & Restore.
We want to build up the body of believers in knowing their God, via His Word, Worship, Fellowship & Prayer. We want to send out those who are firmly rooted in Him. We want to encourage them go out, get out of their comfort zone and be active in their faith. There are no closet Christians. In doing so, we want them to reach out to others, like someone reached out to them. We know it can be a little scary at times, but we encourage people to be active in not only living their faith, but sharing their faith with others and in as many creative ways as possible. Once they are reached, we want to help them restore that broken relationship with God that was lost due to sin, back to a saving faith. So they too can be built up, sent out, reaching out and restoring others as well.
We believe that the church is a gym, a spiritual fitness room where together we work on getting stronger in our faith so we can be productive in our faith. We understand that church really starts when we walk out the door and that we may be the only bibles people will ever read.
