the Basics
Our Church purpose statement is: Love God, Love others, Live your purpose.       This statement translates to two levels, one in general and one in particular to your unique make up.  The general meaning is that loving God and loving others is our purpose for living, and reason God created us.  The particular is that you live out your purpose by exercising the gifts and personality that God uniquely gave you.
      The purpose also serves as the process for discipleship towards spiritual maturity.  We love God by gathering in worship regularly and devoting ourselves to His explicit teaching.  We love others by joining in community by church membership and committing to a small group where we encourage, and challenge one another, doing life together.  Finally we live out our purpose by doing the former as well as serving in our church family as we are uniquely gifted by God.  Everyone has a part to play and has significance in the body.
