Our Passions

Passion For Jesus

From our start we have always used the motto “emphasis on Christ”.  We do so to remind us what we aim to be about.  Jesus Christ.  It’s knowing him, loving him, serving him.

“He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” 1 Cor 1:30

Passion For Community
The world’s population is now approaching seven billion.  We live in that world where so often we are just another number.  We have an IRS number, a phone number, a cell number, a work number, an insurance ID number, an employee number and so many more.  Often we go to church and become just another number.  We desire to be a church with a community.  A community where people “know” each other and care about each other.

Passion For Outreach
We deeply care about reaching the world with the Love of Christ, from our local world to some of the hardest to reach areas.  We focus our oversees mission projects with sister churches in two of those hard to reach areas.  We pray for them, interact with them through modern means and support them with our finances.     We also care about people a lot closer.  We are continually reaching out into our local world with the love of Christ.  Here are a few examples –  food banks, local pregnancy shelters,  cancer walk, Christmas gift projects to the poor, Crisis help such as earthquake relief and many others.  Like the boy who gave Jesus the bread and fish we strive to do what God will allow us to do with what we have, and watch him multiply it.
