what to expect

Our Life with God:​ ​As followers of Jesus we first and foremost pursue a life  centered on a person, on the Creator of the universe, on God Himself.  When we  properly adjust our live to worship, and posture toward the One who is most brilliant,  creative, powerful, beautiful, and loving, it is then we are most happy and fulfilled. In  light of who Jesus is and what He did on our behalf, we have been given a new  identity. We are adopted children of God!  With this new identity comes a new way of  being. It also means new practices and rhythms where we deepen our understanding  of worship and of who Jesus is and what He has done.  This looks like worshipping  and praising God together corporately and in smaller groups.  It means praying and  calling out to the Father and listening to Him.  Reading the scriptures to hear His voice,  and learning who He is, and reminding ourselves that our identity grows and is  confirmed when we are living life in constant communion and connection with the  Father, when we pursue a Life with God.   

 

Our Life Together​: ​As Christians we are called to live life in relationship with one  another, serving one another, and helping one another and our children grow in a  relationship with Jesus.  Because of our faith in Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, we  have gained entrance into a forever family; we gain brothers and sisters (other son's  and daughter's) that live life alongside us and for us.  Therefore we pray for one  another, provided for one another's needs, listen to one another, play together, watch  the big game together, eat together, celebrate and mourn together.  You can't program  family, it's our new identity, it's who we are. Unfortunately even though our culture is  more connected than ever - people are lonelier than ever. As Christ’s body we realize  that there are no “Lone Rangers” in the Kingdom of God, and we are committed to be  a church where people can do life together.  

  

Our Life on Mission​:  ​We pursue lives on intentional mission by seeking to  discover and live out our call to be disciples who make disciples. We do this by  discovering, and then living our our personal ministry within the body of Christ, and by  having a deep commitment to reach outside the walls of our church. We do this by  serving in our community, in our neighborhoods, and in the world by engaging every  domain of society for Christ; education, social services, government, the medical field,  even business, wherever people are in the world, we want to engage them with the  love of Jesus. Additionally, a regular rhythm and pattern of our gathering corporately  and as small groups, will involve engaging our community on mission to fulfill our  mandate to make disciples of all nations. We are convinced that Jesus Christ came to  bring redemption and deliverance to all dimensions of life. We believe that each of us is  called to live our ​Life on Mission  for God as His church and as we go about our day to  day lives​.
