We are a Jesus church! We have three very simple beliefs:
Our first mandate as a church is to love our God. Everything we do flows from this. We love him because we were sinners and he saved us. (Ephesians 2:1-10) We love him because he keeps us and sustains us. (John 10:28-29) We love him because he treats us like children and helps us in our lives. (Galatians 4:7) We love him for more reasons than you could fit on this page. We just simply love our Father!
Our second command after loving God is to love others. (Mark 12:30-31) We think that starts with loving your fellow church members. (Hebrews 10:24-25) Because, let's be real, if we can't love each other how are we going to love people who are different than us? We should love those in need. (James 1:27) We also have the biggest calling of them all; to love the lost. (Luke 19:10) (Mark 16:15-16) (Matthew 28:16-20)
Tell your story
There are many ways to love the lost. Generosity, empathy, and tolerance are certainly among those ways. However, we believe the best way we can be of service to people who are lost is to tell them about Jesus. Telling people about what Jesus has done for you is powerful. (1 Peter 2:9) (Daniel 4:2) (1 Peter 3:15)
