It flows from the first invitation Jesus gave to His disciples in Matthew 4:19- “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” What’s amazing is that this invitation to disciples also defines what disciples do.
1. They FOLLOW Jesus. They don’t just believe in their head or feel faith in their heart. They embrace a new and active way of living life, taking their cues from Jesus.
2. They GROW in Jesus. Jesus meets them where they are at, but they are changed as they follow Jesus. They grow into the person God created them to be.
3. They MULTIPLY Jesus. The goal of discipleship goes beyond Bible knowledge and good behavior. Disciples pursue God working through them so they can help others FOLLOW Jesus, GROW in Jesus, and MULTIPLY Jesus.
This invitation (and definition) didn’t just apply to those first disciples. It extends to us as well. This is our God given mission!
We believe in one God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all who put their faith in him alone for eternal life.
We believe that those who are MADE NEW in Christ are called to be holy in heart, character, and conduct and can only live this way by keeping in step with God's Word and God's Spirit.
We believe in the Bible; in its inspiration, reliability, and authority to establish our faith and direct our daily living.
We believe God's will is for people everywhere to know him and be MADE NEW in Christ.
We believe that the purpose of the Church is to worship God in spirit and in truth and to reach a lost and fallen world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through its worship, witness and loving deeds.
