We search for calling in careers, hobbies, and sometimes in full fledged ministries. As a church we are all called into God’s community and onto his mission. There is no greater calling. We each have a role to play– some in full time roles, others serving faithfully in their own local context. As a church we believe our identity is not a building, but a group of people saved by grace, committed to fulfilling a mission handed down to us by Christ & the apostles as recorded in the Scriptures. We describe our mission like this:
To make disciples who love like Jesus.
We find that mission all throughout the Scriptures, famously in the “great commission” of Matthew 28:19. We know it is a short summarization: “baptizing and teaching” is part of “make disciples” and “love like Jesus” is shorthand for “obey everything I have commanded you”. We have two parallel paths of involvement: partnering with full-time leaders and serving through the local church.
