A Forward-Thinking Outlook On

Living A Life In Christ

The church isn't a building or an institution. It is the people of the congregations that are the church, and the church must spread The Gospel as far as possible.

The children of God need to be cared for, no matter their lot in life. As servants of Christ, we are called to shelter them, nurture them, and provide spiritual fellowship to them.

We bring all members of the church into the sacred space of worship, allowing the Holy Spirit to move fully through the body of Christ.

The Divine Truth is available for all, but it is through interaction with it, discussion about it, and practical application of it that our lives are made whole through God.

Followers of Christ are called to serve their neighbors. Through "radical neighboring" we find the ways that the body of Christ around us is being underserved and offer what we can.

Christ called us to prepare the Kingdom of Heaven. God calls us to demonstrate what that looks like to the world through our actions.
