With God’s help, our mission is for our ministry to meet the total needs of people in our community and our world.
Sound Biblical Doctrine
If we are not depending on and being faithful to sound doctrine ourselves, we cannot grow in Christ or discern when doctrine isn't sound. If we abide in the teaching of Christ, we are given his Spirit. (2 John 1:9)
Culture and Lifestyle of Prayer
To pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17) is to make prayer a lifestyle or permanent practice in your life, a part of your church culture. To pray without ceasing is to pray at all times and for all things.
Worship in Spirit and in Truth
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (1 John 4:24)
Outreach to the Community
By engaging in outreach evangelism, we aim to fulfill the prophetic proclamation in (Isaiah 61:1) The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
