Our Mission is to bring a growing number of people into a personal relationship with God through commitment to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; to encourage their development as God’s people in a loving community of faith; and to equip and mobilize them through the power of the Holy Spirit to serve and witness in the Church, community and world.  Our Mission is fulfilled through seven principal objectives:

To exalt Christ through worship.

To lead people to Christ through witness and evangelism.

To build people in Christ through education and discipleship.

To involve people in ministry for Christ through stewardship and service.

To unify people in Christ through community and fellowship.

To reach the world for Christ through outreach and missions.

To meet the needs of people in the Spirit of Christ.

Our Nature as the church of Jesus Christ is unique.  

The church is the only institution in the world that exists primarily for those who are not yet in it. 

THE BELHAR CONFESSION is one of the confessions of our church. In the midst of all the changes going on around us, it is a reminder of our role as people who show up bearing the presence of Christ.

The Belhar Confession

“We believe that the church must...stand by people in any form of suffering and need, which implies, among other things, that the church must witness against and strive against any form of injustice, so that justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. 

...that the church as the possession of God must stand where the Lord stands, namely against injustice and with the wronged; that in following Christ the church must witness against all the powerful and privileged who selfishly seek their own interests and thus control and harm others. 

Therefore, we reject any ideology which would legitimate forms of injustice and any doctrine which is unwilling to resist such an ideology in the name of the gospel.” 

Spiritual renewal will only happen when “local congregations renounce an introverted concern for their own life, and recognize that they exist for the sake of those who are not members, as sign, instrument and foretaste of God’s redeeming grace for the whole life of society.” Leslie Newbigin
