Our Vision is...
1 Goal + 2 Relationships = 1 Vision
Goal: Glorify Jesus
We believe the reason of our existence, the chief end of our purpose here on earth, is to make much of Jesus, to worship and glorify Him. We believe we most glorify Him when we not only have faith in the good news that Jesus saves, but also when He is our utmost satisfaction and joy. Ultimately, this happens when we each walk in a relationship with Jesus much like His disciples did. We must each follow Jesus.
Vertical Relationship: Follow Jesus
We believe that each of us are to enjoy and thrive in a vertical relationship with Jesus, which is vital to accomplishing our goal and overall vision. Therefore, we greatly encourage each individual to maintain a healthy and deep relationship with Jesus as a disciple of His, following Him much like His own disciples did. As we increasingly submit more of our lives to the lordship of Jesus, we are also commanded to help others do the same; we are all commanded to disciple others.
Horizontal Relationship: Disciple Others to Jesus
Because of the joy we have in knowing Christ and following Him, we take seriously His command to be disciples who make disciples (Matt. 28:19). Therefore we aim to equip Jesus-followers with all they need to share the gospel and disciple new believers, maintaining a horizontal relationship with one another. Discipleship is not the ultimate goal of our church, worship is (our goal). We disciple to increase worship (empowered by the Holy Spirit) by helping others to increasingly submit their lives to the Lordship of Jesus. In doing so, we are demonstrating to them and to the world the greatest form of love anyone can show.
