WHY WE EXIST

We exist to engage every person to find, love, and follow Jesus.


FOCUS ON FINDING JESUS

None of us were born Christians! Step one for every person is to FIND Jesus!  He is not hard to find but you must have your eyes opened to your need for a Savior- because of the sin-problem we all have!  “Your sins have separated you from your God," Jesus said, “I didn’t come to condemn the world but to save the world from sin!”  He is the perfect “mediator” between God and Man.  Our hope is every person finds Him and believes in Him as Savior from their sin!  He offers forgiveness and eternal life to all who do.

FOCUS ON FOLLOWING JESUS

His early disciples did more than just “accept” who Jesus was. They followed Him!  They listened to His words, believed He was the Savior of the world, they conformed their lives to His teaching, and they did what He did. They loved & served others in selfless ways, they told people about Jesus, they met together for teaching and encouragement and they pointed those who connected with them to do the same.

FOCUS ON LOVING JESUS

Jesus wants a relationship with each of us! Loving Jesus is what those who come to Him can do!  Loving Jesus starts with obeying what He teaches and moves us to enjoying His presence!  It’s the first command, ”Love the Lord with all your heart and soul and mind and strength!” Growing in your devotional life, worship experiences, contentment, and joy are all found as you Love Jesus more. Jesus offers friendship to His followers.  Our opportunity is to learn how to walk with Him as Lord and friend!
