Who We Are
Making disciples is at the core of all we do. But what does that mean? We believe it means first and foremost that we must PROCLAIM JESUS in everything that we do (Col. 1:28). He is the only Savior and Lord, and everything exists for his glory. As we put our trust in him, the second part of our calling is to EQUIP SERVANTS for the work of the ministry who faithfully abide, grow and endure in Jesus (Eph. 4:11-16). Finally, as Jesus is proclaimed, and servants are equipped, we are able to SEND WITNESSES who sacrificially point others to Jesus in our church, local community, and around the world (Acts 1:8).*
