Purpose

In relation to God, our purpose is to worship and glorify Him, to be holy for Him, and to obey His commands (John 4:23-241 Cor. 10:31Eph. 1:12; 1 Pet. 1:14-16; Eph. 5:23-24). Because of all that God has done for us, we gratefully choose to worship Him and give Him the glory He deserves. We also strive to be holy like God as much as is possible by conforming our lives to His character and by obeying His commands.

In relation to other believers, our purpose is to make disciples, uphold and proclaim all of God’s truth, and fellowship together (Matt. 28:19-20Eph. 4:11-16; Acts 20:271 Tim. 3:151 Thess. 5:14; John 13:35Acts 2:42Heb. 10:25). As followers of Christ, we seek to follow His command to make disciples. We do this by teaching and applying the truths God has given to us in the Bible. We also value God-given fellowship with other believers as we can learn from and be encouraged by them.

In relation to unbelievers, our purpose is to preach the gospel and to be a light in this dark world (Mark 16:152 Cor. 5:20-212 Cor. 2:15-17; Matt. 5:14-16Phil. 2:15Eph. 5:8-11). As ambassadors for Christ, we seek to proclaim the gospel to all including the need for repentance from sin and faith in Jesus. We also seek to live holy lives that honor God, that showcase the change God has made in our lives, and that is not conformed to this sinful world.
