Our Beliefs

Our Vision and Mission Statements and these four Scripture verses shape our faith community:

Vision Statement:

Loving and feeding the members of our community in mind, body, and spirit so they may be strengthened by the Bread of Life. 

Mission Statement:

We will inspire people to passionately commune with God, grow in faith, connect with one another, open their hearts for sharing, and lovingly serve and care for others.

Matthew 25:35-36

I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me.  I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.’

 

1 John 4:7-8

Dear friends, let’s love each other, because love is from God, and everyone who loves is born from God and knows God.  The person who doesn’t love does not know God, because God is love.

 

Micah 6:8

He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God.

 

Luke 4:18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me.
He has sent me to preach good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the prisoners
and recovery of sight to the blind, to liberate the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
