Faith desires to be a community that is being transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ through:
Word: Christ-centered Preaching and Christ-focused living through, discipleship, intentional peacemaking, and ministries of reconciliation
Worship: God-honoring and Christ-focused worship
Witness: Faithful witness of the Gospel to our neighbors, our community, and the world.
We press toward this goal in the strength that God provides through trusting and proclaiming the life-changing message of the gospel as presented in the entire Bible.
The gospel is not about “doing better”, “trying harder”, or “being good”. The gospel is that helpless sinners are forgiven and accepted by God only through Christ’s righteous life and death on the cross as our substitute. If we trust in Christ alone we are given a whole new life and a new object of worship: the Triune God. The gospel is the good news of salvation and also the power for living life with changed affections.
As we rely on God’s grace by embracing more of the gospel, every area of our life is affected. Change begins to take place in our relationships, careers, and community.
As a community of grace striving to love one another in deed and prayer, we are not a showroom of people who “have it all together”, but a repair shop for those who constantly need the love and mercy of God and have a humble passion to share it.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:34-35
