Why We Exist

Telling the Good News in a Spirit of Love (Evangelism)

As a member congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church, we wholeheartedly endorse and accept the following Mission Statement:  We are united by Christ in a Holy Covenant of churches empowered by the Holy Spirit to obey the Great Commandments and the Great Commission:  

  •      * To love our neighbor as ourselves.  To love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind.

  •      * To go into all the world and make disciples (reaching even those who seem to be unreachable).

Celebrating God (Worship)

We celebrate, admire, adore, and applaud God over anyone or anything in this life, because God gave us life through Creation and New Life through the Good News of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

Authentic Friendship (Fellowship)

We spend time together in large and small groups as we develop relationships with God and each other. We believe in balancing growth, commitment, and service with celebration, fun, and friendship.

Christian Growth (Discipleship)

We are becoming committed and competent followers of Jesus as we learn and refine life skills, develop character, overcome evil, and nurture loving relationships with God, people, and God’s Creation. We are formed and transformed by the Word of God (the Bible) and the Holy Spirit, the living, breathing presence of God, the Father, and Jesus, the Son, in our midst.  

Serving God and Others (Ministry)

We love and serve God and our neighbors around the block and around the world. We work to meet the felt needs and deeper spiritual needs of others, as we are energized by spiritual gifts God gives us when we turn to Christ. As we reach out, our neighbors also teach and serve us, so that we meet as equals in the sight of God.

Speaking and Listening to God (Prayer)

Prayer undergirds every purpose of the church. This way of communicating with God grows love, sparks outreach, gives life to worship, grows friendships with God and God’s people, forms disciples, and breathes life into our ministries.
