Purpose & Vision

Purpose

Believers were never meant to live in isolation. Being united with Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit also means that we are united with one another. While this unity exists among all true believers in the world, it must necessarily find expression among communities of believers, commonly known as local churches. These local churches are more than casual or random gatherings. They are intentional and purposeful expressions of Christian unity and action through intimate, dedicated relationship. As a local church, we are committed to the following core purposes:

  • Maintaining the Centrality of the Truth
  • Making Disciples of Jesus Christ
  • Commitment to One Another in Brotherhood
  • Mutual Edification and Admonition
  • Worship and Praise
  • Prayer and Proclamation
  • Evangelism and Missions
  • Developing Leaders


In all of these things, our ultimate purpose is to bear fruit in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God our Father.
