On a Mission of G.R.A.C.E.


G Glorify God (1 Peter. 2:9, 10; 1 Cor. 10:31)

This is the heart of our existence: it’s about Him!

We seek to bring Him glory in all of our lives. We gather on Sundays to worship Him together as we sing, learn, serve, encourage one another (Heb. 10:19-25; Psalm 100).


We also want to honor Him in our daily lives through private worship & obedience (Rom. 12:1, 2; Matt. 6:1-18).




R Reach Out In His Love

God’s love is “given to be given.” We want to help fulfill the:

Great Commandment (love others - Matt. 22:34-40)


Great Commission (make disciples - Mt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)


We Seek to do this:

Locally

Practical Acts of Love & Service

Sharing the message of God’s grace

Support & Share in Local Ministries



Globally:

Through missionaries and ministries we support in Haiti, Uganda, Navaho nation, Tennessee and other places.



A Apply His Truth to Our Lives

Knowing that “knowing” is not enough , we seek to obey God’s word ourselves (see James 1:22; Matt. 7:24-29). This is a constant reminder of God’s grace & forgiveness (1 John 15-2:2)



C Care For One Another

Being involved in each other’s lives: meeting needs, praying for, serving, loving (1 John 4:7,8 ; Lk 10:25-37)


E Edify (build up) one Another (Eph. 4:12-17)

We have a responsibility and honor to help each other grow in our love-walk with Jesus. Everyone has a part in making disciples.

Formal teaching, discipleship

Informal instruction, advice, correction , friendship

“Iron sharpening iron” relationships (Prov. 27:17)



We are part of the Evangelical Free Church of America, an association of some 1,300 autonomous churches united by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ (visit www.EFCA.org). We are committed to cooperate with one another in ministry and fellowship as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission. The ministry of the EFCA extends to over 40 countries of the world.


Evangelical refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the Gospel and to the authority of Scriptures as being inerrant in the original writings & the only safe & sufficient guide to faith & practice.


Free refers to our form of church government as being congregational. Evangelical Free Churches depend upon the active participation of lay people in the decisions and directions.
