It is our desire to be a healthy, growing body of believers who seek to teach and obey God’s word in order to bring glory to God. We will develop disciples and leaders through one-to-one discipleship, small groups, and core classes. We will seek to use both traditional and contemporary methods of worship to reach all people groups and segments of our community including our children and grandchildren!
We will seek to bring all people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit; to help them grow in biblical obedience; and equip them to serve in our church and world. We envision growth through a primary emphasis on outreach to unchurched families and unchurched believers. We are committed to building a people who are FAITHFUL TO GOD by placing Him first in their affections and seeking to serve Him by:
WINNING THE COMMUNITY
LOVING OUR CONGREGATION
EQUIPPING THE DEVOTED
SENDING THE CORE
As you heard in the message, God loves you. He invites you – not into a religion – but into a relationship with Him. A relationship made completely possible by Jesus Christ through His life, death, burial and resurrection. On this Easter, this celebration of His victory over sin and death, I urge you to begin, or renew, a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
The following is a prayer for you to consider praying to God.
Read this over first and take the time to decide if this is truly how you desire to respond. (It also helps if you have a friend who is already living as a disciple [a follower of Jesus], who can pray for you and with you as you make this response to God.) When you are ready, pray it slowly and out loud. Pause for a moment of silence at the end of each sentence to let it really sink in:
I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life.
I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward.
Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
If you chose to respond to God with this prayer, believe that He has heard you. Just like exchanging wedding vows is only the beginning of a lifelong marriage, so too, this is just the start of a relationship that God wants to have with you, one that is meant to continue for all of eternity.
If you have prayed this prayer, and it expresses the genuine desire of your heart, please call or email me so that we may help you and pray for you in your first steps of following Jesus and getting to know Him.
