Our Purpose

God intends to display the glory of his beauty, perfection and love through the church.

How would that look?

*God's name exalted in song and sermon
*Relationships tied together in love and service
*Christ's sacrifice pictured in the lives of sinful but repenting people

Churches are to display God and His glorious gospel to His creation.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light (1 Peter 2:9).
