Who We Are

Who We Are

Verse and Values

Our Theme Verse

 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.  John 10:16

Values

1) Seeing a Big God.  Our worldview should be a Big God in all situations, all relationships, all encounters.  Easy to say, yet tough to live.  It’s why we say, “There are no accidents in Christianity” (Romans 8:28, 37-39).  This should lead our affections to worship, reverence, and awe of a mighty God. We see God’s grace invade the darkness of this world through Christ’s crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and people’s hearts change (2 Corinthians 4).  Changed hearts are the key to changed lives that glorify Christ in every way.

2) Love the Other Person.  Love is a cultural value, Christian or not.  It’s easy to love those you like.  It’s even easier to love those whom you want to like you.  Yet as Christ followers, we are called to love the other person.  The one in the shadow, the one who’s not cool, the one whom you get nothing in return for your kindness.  Jesus modeled this.  He loved lepers, prostitutes, and tax collectors.  We should too.  God’s love is gritty and messy and goes to the gutters for the broken and the lost.  It’s why our theme verse is John 10:16.  Jesus goes to others not of this fold.  We follow.

3) Go to the World.  Jesus is clear.  Go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19).  Jesus’ Go literally means “as you go.”  You don’t have to go to Italy or India.  As you go to school, to dinner, to work, to baseball games, make disciples there.   He says in Acts 1:8 – “You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Some of us are called to go even further such as  Italy, India, and elsewhere.  Jesus gives us supernatural courage to live our faith boldly.  We can be His witnesses at any place, at any time, and with any person.   Our life is His mission.

Our Leaders

Jesus is the head of the church.  Jesus has called elders to shepherd the local church (1 Timothy 3: 1-7, Titus 1: 5-9, 1 Peter 5: 1-5).  This means elders lead the church in vision, teaching, pastoral care, and church discipline.  Deacons are servant leaders in a local church (1 Timothy 3: 8-13, Acts 6: 1-6).  Deacons assist the elders and serve in hospitality, food ministries, serving of communion, benevolence fund, property needs, finance, and personnel.  Our ministry leaders aim to equip members to make disciples in their areas.
