"Building a transformational community by growing in love with Christ and all people!"
The mission of the Church of Jesus Christ has been the same since her inception. The message remains the same, but the methods consistently change. The call is consistent, but the context is ever-changing.
Our mission statement succinctly describes our heart. We are followers of Jesus Christ who desire a deeper walk and life in Him as well as desiring to live that out in the way we love people. Our desire is to bring glory to God in the way we live out this mission in our community and world. The glory of God is ultimate.
The scriptures share the wonderful news that God is glorified through changed lives. Life change is both an event (salvation) and a process (sanctification). The process of life change begins at salvation, or rebirth. This is the result of a person placing his or her faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The rest of the Christian life is a sequence of becoming more and more like Christ, a process called sanctification. The Bible says this is God's will for us. Both salvation and sanctification are evidences of God's grace in our lives and are appropriated by faith.
"Life change" takes place as one has heard and believed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. People's lives can be changed by a dramatic event, traumatic news or an enticing culture. But, the only kind of life change that allows a person to have a right relationship with God the Father is through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christ died for our sins and was raised to life three days later. That is the essence of the gospel.
