“It’s not about religion, it’s about relationship.”

 

 

 
John 1:12NLT

12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

 
We are becoming A RELATIONAL CHURCH living as followers of Jesus Christ reconciled and reconciling in relationships with God, with each other, and with the people God misses most


 
A SIMPLE CHURCH

Love God. Love Your Neighbor. Love Each Other.

 

 



AN INTENTIONAL CHURCH

Discipleship through Spiritual Discipline

 



 
We Are God’s Ambassadors
 
2 Corinthians 5:11-21NLT

11 Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too. 12 Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of us, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular ministry rather than having a sincere heart. 13 If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. 14 Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. 15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. 16 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
