Our mission is simple yet powerful. It is double-edged in that it increases the Kingdom of God while reducing the kingdom of darkness. It is simply this... "To know Him and make Him known".
Our vision is verbalized by our Savior when He declared His mandate for being here. We desire to see all who belong to Him do the same.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me
to preach the Gospel to the poor,
to heal the broken-hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives and recover sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
Luke 4: 18-19
This is central to who we are and what we do.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart... and your neighbor as yourself." Luke 10:27
Let everything we do be done in love.
Once we experience His great love, we are called into a life of knowing Him and making Him known. We realize the necessity of sharing our lives with one another in a community of faith and are committed to doing so.
"The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve..." Mark 10:45
We believe that powerful leaders are those who know how to serve, and raising up those servant leaders is a hill that we will die on.
A martyred missionary, Jim Elliot, once said, "He is no fool who gives what He cannot keep to gain that which he can never lose."
Generosity is the very nature of God.
"For God so loved the world that He GAVE..." John 3:16
He still gives...through us.
