To share God's love in ever increasing measure

God loves us and sent Jesus so that everyone might truly know love through him. At some point in our lives someone shared that good news with us.  So, we gather together as church to return that love to God, to love one another, and to share that love beyond our congregation. (1 John 4:7-14, Luke 10:27)

Simply put, we love, because God first loved us, and our greatest ambition is to share that love in ever increasing measure.

How do we share God's Love?

Jesus has always been sensitive and responsive to our physical, emotional, and spiritual needs and encourages us to do the same.  He established the church to be a place of security, comfort, rest, acceptance, and assistance for all people. (Matthew 25:34-36, 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, Colossians 3:12-14)

We strive to be a place of refreshment by creating a safe and welcoming environment, developing genuine friendships, helping one another with practical needs, prioritizing people over programs, and practicing compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

We are each uniquely created and equipped by God to contribute to the common good.  Some are called into specific roles within the church, while others find their fulfillment outside the church through occupations or volunteerism. But God considers us all to be a royal priesthood and desires that we all grow in the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 2:10, 3:14-19, 4:11-13, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 1 Peter 2:9)

Our desire is for individuals to grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually, while identifying, developing, and exercising their unique roles.  To fulfill that desire, we endeavor to empower each person to seek, question, and understand God’s word and will, and provide everyone access to opportunities, support, and encouragement to exercise their unique gifts.

God desires all churches and individuals to be generous in their support of others in need.  (3 John 5-8, Hebrews 13:16)


We are committed to contributing our resources, including money and time, to other churches and organizations engaged in the work of sharing God’s love, as well as to those outside the church who are in need, marginalized, or at risk, such as people who are impoverished, without adequate shelter, or have substance use disorders.
