Mission, Vision, Values
to see JESUS glorified by making disciples who value LIFE, LOVE, COMMUNITY, & MISSION.
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, GO and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
“anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person, the old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
2 Corinthians 5.17
Jesus Christ came to give NEW LIFE to any & all who would TURN from their life & FOLLOW Him in everything. The Bible teaches that if anyone will confess with their mouth and believe in their heart that JESUS Christ is lord, they will given NEW LIFE.

“we know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?” 1 John 3.16-17
a NEW LIFE that is genuine, authentic, & real is not marked by perfection, but by LOVE. Love is not a creation of humanity, but deity. God created love, He gets to define it. We want to live our lives in LOVE with God, & loving one another. Thus we seek to ” love ONE. love ONE another.”

“and all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity.” Acts 2.44-46
Humanity is hard-wired to live in community. The human — created in the image of God (and God is 3n1 – Father, Son, Spirit) — is a tri-unity (body, soul, spirit). We are made to CONNECT and live in relationship.
