Identity Statement

"We are a HOLY people, UNITED in Christ, GROWING up into Christ, WORSHIPING Christ in all that we do."

Holy

God is holy -- set apart and pure. We are in Him through the blood of Jesus Christ and so we are His people and holy. Therefore, as a holy people, we must reflect His holiness to each other and to the world.

(2 Corinthians 5:19-21, 1 Peter 1:15,16, Colossians 3:12-14, 1 Peter 2)

United

God is one -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We, who are in Christ, are many members united in one body. Therefore, as the body of Christ, we are united in one faith, each one working together.

(Jude 3, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Romans 12:3-8, Ephesians 4)

Growing

We are becoming more like Christ, growing through God and His Word, building each other up, until we reach the fullness of Christ.

(Ephesians 4:11-16)

Worshiping

All of life must be lived in response to who Christ is and what He has done. Worship encompasses all of our thoughts, words, and actions that flow from Him and glorify Him. As the body of Christ, we worship both individually and as we gather together.

(1 Peter 2:9-10, Colossians 3, 1 Corinthians 10:31)
