Who We Are

We are sinners called by Christ, redeemed by grace,striving to fulfill Christ’s will in our lives. We are a community of Christ followers who come together in His name to share, learn, and support one-another in our faith. We understand that we are all at different points on our faith journey – Called, Rescued, Disciple, Equipped. We know that our goal is to follow Christ’s command, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them … and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20

 

We are Called:

God is calling us to follow Him. Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.””All that the Father gives me will come to me and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” John 6:35

God calls us:

  • Generally through His creation
  • Internally through His word (the Bible)
  • Externally through the Holy Spirit

 

We are Rescued:

After receiving the Lord’s calling, we are prompted through scripture to respond.

  • We know and confess our sin and our faithlessness
  • We believe the truth of the person, the work, and the message of Jesus Christ  
  • We know that we are saved by Gods’ grace alone, that we are otherwise unworthy
  • We believe that Jesus loves us and died on the cross to save us from our sin and God’s wrath

Being rescued requires two things:

  • Faith in Jesus Christ as God’s solution to our sinful lives
  • God’s immediate and sustained intervention in our lives

 

We are Discipled:

Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them … and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19-20

A disciple is someone who is convinced, convicted, and committed to Jesus as the ultimate authority over life and all things. A disciple lives through full faith and will submit their life to Christ.

A disciple is:

  • A learner and a teacher
  • A follower and a leader
  • A disciple is a discipler, leading other to be disciples
  • One who attempts to model themselves after Christ

 

We are Equipped:

The Lord provides for us and prepares us to go into the world; we are told to be in the world not of the world.

  • We strive to equip ourselves to reflect Jesus Christ in all that we do
  • We are equipped through faith and trust in God and the message of His son Christ Jesus
  • We gather together to worship and share His word through Bible study
  • We challenge ourselves to be what Christ asks of us, that we be a reflection of Him in the world
  • We equip others to become Disciples

 

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”, Colossians 3:17
