Our Purpose and Values

Our Purpose:  To Glorify God (1 Corinthians 10:31) by pursuing his calling for his church.

As revealed in Scripture these are the primary and overarching purposes of a church (Acts 2:42-47), to be seen as the “vital signs” of a healthy, growing and biblical church:  UPREACH, OUTREACH, INREACH, DOWNREACH:  

+  WORSHIP (UPREACH) – Offering praise to God and communing with him through prayer. We are called to gather for the adoration of our triune God, the ministry of God’s Word through gospel preaching, and partaking of the sacraments. 

+  COMMUNITY (INREACH) – Living in gospel fellowship where people feel responsibility and love for one another as the family of God.

+  MISSION (OUTREACH) – Sharing the gospel of Christ through ministries of word and deed. A people committed to evangelism, church planting, mercy and social concern both locally and globally.

+  DISCIPLESHIP (DOWNREACH) – Learning together how to follow Christ and apply the gospel of grace while equipping and reproducing leaders.
