Additional Info About Our Church

The Gospel of Mark states that "for even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve."

God is eagerly calling us, the Church, to serve both near and far -- locally, nationally, and internationally. One of the greatest commands Jesus gives us in the New Testament is to, "love your neighbor as yourself." The heart to serve comes to us from the overflow of Christ's love for us and then from our Christ-like love for those around us. We are committed to partnering with each other on mission, locally and globally, and through this commitment we all have the opportunity to use our own unique God-given abilities to change lives by shining the light that is within us that is Jesus.

One of the most powerful ways to worship God is to simply serve His people. And there's no better time than now to put our faith into practice by getting connected to one of our mission opportunities. We partner with, and seek out, local and global mission organizations who share our passion for loving our neighbors and we encourage you to get involved in the work God has called us to.
