Our Focus on Ministry
The Word of God
The study of the Holy Scripture is our sole authority for righteous living
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV) All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Prayer, Praise and Worship
Prayer is communication with God, praise is our response to what God does for us, and worship is our acknowledgement of who God is to us.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV) Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Love (Charity, Caring, and Giving)
We express God’s love by sharing our time, talents, and possessions with others to bless God’s people. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13 (NIV) For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Commitment to Christ’ Church
We commit our lives to Christ through fellowship, assembly, communion, and discipleship. Acts 2:42 (NIV) They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
We embrace the promise of Jesus Christ that gives us a fulfilled life of purpose.
John 10:10 (NIV) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Excellence is God’s standard for all believers that brings glory to God in our living.
Colossians 3:17 (NIV) And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
