The good news of the gospel, that we can have life with God through the cross of Christ by God’s grace alone, drives our mission… Our deep desire is to see all people grow to:
Love JESUS - Throughout the NT Christians are described as those who love Jesus (Rom 8:28; 1 Thess 1:2-3) while non-Christians are described as enemies of God who hate Jesus (Rom 1:30, 5:10; Jn 3:19). By God’s grace, we can grow in our love for Jesus because God first loved us (1 Jn 4:10).
Cultivate COMMUNITY - God does not save us to an individualistic faith, but God rescues us from our individualism and saves us into His family, the church (Gal 3:3-7). We can and should cultivate community in our lives because Jesus died to create and secure the community of the church (Eph 2:11-16).
Live on MISSION - Witnessing to the good news (gospel) of who Jesus is and what He has done described through the three aspects of God’s Kingdom, the cross of Christ and the free grace of God is every Christian’s privilege, joy and responsibility. We can be missionaries because Jesus was the ultimate missionary sent by His Father from heaven to earth to bring us good news (Jn 20:21; Phil 2:3-11).
