WHAT WE DO

Not Programs, But Practices to Further the

Process of Our Becoming What God Intends  

 

WORSHIP

          Giving glory and ascribing honor to God and humbling ourselves before Him, that He may have "First Place" in our hearts and church, and we may delight in reflecting on His Goodness and Greatness together.

DISCIPLESHIP

          Through small-group bible studies, we receive instruction and encouragement for our Christian lives and help one another on the way to becoming mature and fruitful disciples.   

 

MINISTRY and SERVICE

           Doing to one another as we would have others do to ourselves. Caring, supporting, helping, and meeting needs through both structured responsibilities and informal ways, resulting in a healthy church community.

PRAYER

            Praising and thanking God, confessing our sins to Him, casting our cares upon Him, representing the burdens of others before Him, and finding strength, clarity, hope and peace as a result.
 

SHARING OUR FAITH WITH OTHERS

            Being ready, when asked, to give a reason for the hope that we have; telling persons about our relationship with Christ and patiently, gently, and prayerfully assisting them in finding that relationship for themselves.
