Who We Are
"Gospel-centered" keeps the gospel message at the center of all ministry, whether to believers or unbelievers. Belief in the gospel is the means by which we enter God’s kingdom; and it is also the means by which we make all progress in the kingdom. The good news of the gospel - that we can be saved from the wrath of God - contains both the power and motivation for salvation, and everything within salvation.
We are convinced that God calls us to be an outward-focused mission agency (both locally and globally); and that he intends all believers to be fishers of men. God has called us to specifically equip and inspire our members to win people to Christ. We also desire our church community to be on mission more broadly by way of social justice initiatives and church planting.
Because Jesus himself made disciples and commissioned all believers to make disciples, our goal is for every believer to become a disciple-making disciple. We desire to be disciples who actively make disciple-making disciples who know, love and obey Jesus. Courses and tools might help, but discipleship happens via intentional relationships, as well as via Gospel Communities that prioritize this.
We believe God has called us as a church to be in eager and intelligent pursuit of the presence and power of God's Spirit, as mentioned in the Bible. We believe that all believers should heed the Biblical call to be filled with the Spirit, and remain filled, throughout their lives.
