Honoring God. Helping People.
This phrase, inspired by James 1:27, summarizes our purpose well. We desire above all to honor our Lord with everything we say and do, as well as help those in need. We believe that this is what Jesus did, and what He is still doing today through churches and individuals that desire to model their purpose after His own and are willing to be used of Him to carry out this purpose.
Therefore, to accomplish this purpose, we acknowledge that we as a church are to lovingly engage our society, boldly confront sin, and fervently evangelize others, just like Jesus did.
What’s more, in our desire to be like the church that Jesus built, we’ve adopted a somewhat “old-fashioned” meeting pattern: instead of meeting for a bit in the morning, leaving, and coming back at night, we have chosen to assemble for a larger portion of time on Sundays, with a mealtime in there, too! You see, Acts 2:42 teaches that the church assembled for at least these four elements: Doctrine, Fellowship, Mealtime, and Prayer. So we meet in the morning and stay into the early afternoon, spending about 4 hours of time together on the Lord’s Day (you can see the breakdown of our meeting times here).
If you have any questions at all about our purpose, please feel free to reach out to us here.
