OUR MISSION: TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST.
OUR METHOD: PURSUING JESUS THROUGH HOLINESS OF HEART & LIFE.
Worship is one of the means of grace that we exercise together publicly; it is a group pronouncement of God’s grace-filled presence in our lives.
Some examples of acts of worship are:
- Receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion as often as possible
- Giving our financial resources to the work of Christ in the world
- Singing and praying together
- Hearing the scripture read and preached upon
- Living into the command not to neglect meeting together
- Encouraging one another experience the fullness of God
Devotion is a means of grace that we encounter through personal spiritual disciplines. The disciplines of devotion build our personal relationship with God.
Some examples of acts of devotion are:
- Reading and reflecting on the scriptures
- Meeting in small groups and bible studies
- Intentional Silence
Compassion is part of what John Wesley called works of mercy, in which Christ’s followers respond to the suffering of those around us.
Some examples of acts of compassion are:
- Serving in our church and community
- Visiting the sick (those suffering in mind or body)
- Feeding the hungry
- Clothing the poor
- Tending to neighbors and friends
- Treating all people with respect and dignity
Justice is the public response to an underlying cause of suffering in the world, in which we not only minister to people in need but also ask why they are in need.
Some examples of acts of justice are:
- Advocacy for children
- Peacemaking in our community and world
- Witnessing to the power of Christ
- Oppose injustice, in whatever form we find it
- Standing up for those who are not present or able to stand up for themselves
- Supporting institutions and systems working for the common good of those in need
