We are the Church!

WE ARE THE CHURCH

This is who we are. This is what we do.

OUR CALLING IS SURE

our vision is clear.

our desire is strong; our influence is eternal;

our faith is tough; our mission is urgent;

our purpose is unmistakable; our direction is forward;

our hearts are genuine; our strength is supernatural;

our reward is promised; and our God is real.

IN A BROKEN WORLD WE OFFER HOPE

In a world of confusion, we offer truth.

In a world of immorality, we offer values.

In a world of abuse, we offer safety.

In a world of neglect, we offer affirmation.

In a world of division, we offer salvation.

In a world of hate, we offer God’s hope.

WE WILL NOT GIVE UP

give in, bail out, lie down, turn over, quit or surrender.

We will pray when things look bad.

We will pray when things look good.

We will work when the task is overwhelming.

We will get up when we fall down.

OUR MISSION IS TO REACH PEOPLE FOR GOD

It is too serious to be taken lightly,

too urgent to be postponed,

too vital to be ignored,

too relevant to be overlooked,

too significant to be trivialized,

too eternal to be fleeting, and

too passionate to be quenched.

SO LET GOD GET THE GLORY

We know our challenge.

We also know our limitations, our weaknesses, our fears, and our problems.

But we know our God.

This is who we are. This is what we do.
