Our Vision

Our vision is simple, “We see a church where everyone is welcome, everyone is loved and where Jesus is honored as savior, friend and God.”

Our vision comes from our common journey.   Together, we came to realize that at some point in our individual lives we became so caught up in”religion” that we lost track of the “relationship.” For us, looking at God was like trying to see through the “fogged up” windshield of a car.  We wanted to see Him clearly. We wanted to see him as the Bible tells us He is. Not according to religious doctrine or dogma but as the Holy Spirit of God revealed Him to mankind through the Bible. When we began to search we realized He was right there all the time. The real Jesus. When you peeled away the nearly 2000 years of religion you found a “friend” who came to earth for one reason, He loves you. He said it Himself, He came to search for and find the lost. Just as you’re searching for Him, He’s searching for you.

We also found that a relationship with Jesus is more than just a Sunday visit to church or placing a tithe or an offering in the plate. A relationship with Jesus is just that, a relationship.  It’s not a system of Laws, He did away with the laws. It’s not a list of “can’ts” but a life of “I cans.” He set us free so that we might have a great life, a life we can live to the fullest. So, our vision is simple.  We see a church where everyone is welcome, everyone is loved and where Jesus is honored as savior, friend and God.  It’s really simple,

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:37-40 [show] And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." (ESV)
