The vision that God laid upon our hearts for this community comes straight from Isaiah 61:1-4. The results of the good news in this passage is "that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified. They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations."
For the glory of God, we see a day when we are:
A community rebuilding on the bedrock foundation of Jesus.
Deuteronomy 31:12, "Assemble the people, men, women, and children, and the stranger within your towns, that they may hear and learn to fear the Lord your God, and be careful to do all the words of this law." A church can do a lot of things but we desire to do these three things with excellence. Our strategy is to create environments where we can:
- ENCOUNTER the glory of God through corporate worship
- EXPERIENCE life together through small groups
- ENGAGE the world with the Gospel through service and evangelism
