FORM FRIENDSHIPS + MEET JESUS + SERVE OTHERS
FORM FRIENDSHIPS (IN): God calls* us to be his body – God’s hands and feet. We believe the Church is to operate as an extended family – where we can dare to care for each other.
MEET JESUS (UP): We believe Jesus can be met for the first time or the thousandth time through scripture, worship, community, and serving. We believe there is no greater calling* for the Church than to know Jesus Christ as Lord, and to make him known.
SERVE OTHERS (OUT): Jesus himself said, “For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many” Mark 10:45. As his followers, we are called* to serve others as well.
*We use the words “call” and “calling.” In its simplest and most straightforward meaning, the verb to call refers to the capacity living creatures have to call out to one another, to stay connected, to communicate something of importance.
