To live with faith that is engaged today and growing for tomorrow! To remain a multi-generational and multicultural church built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets; Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.
Individuals of all ages, races, and economic statuses daily cultivate their relationship with God. Allowing the church to fulfill the great commission; resulting in unity of prayer, spirit, and personal growth. To grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to whom we give both glory and honor forever!
The primary purpose of a believer's life is to glorify God. This occurs by reflecting the character of Christ through obedience to His Word. A true believer lives and walks in the Spirit and has crucified the flesh with its affections and lusts (Galatians 5:24-25).
A believer engages in edifying activities that result in being strengthened spiritually. Believers are led by Christ's love to strengthen the church and to be diligent in service to others.
"From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love." Ephesians 4:16
There is Hope
The greatest hope for a believer is to achieve the goal of heaven.
The blessed hope of heaven is made possible by our response to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As we experience a saving faith in Christ Jesus, the fruits of true repentance come forth, and we become converted by God's grace. Inspired by a love for Christ, we strive to obediently follow biblical principles, and we rejoice in the hope of eternal life in heaven. Our affection is set on things above and not on things of the earth.
"Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." Romans 15:13
