We are convinced that God, in His Grace, has called us to be His own and responds to our prayers. He
has called us obey His word and empowers us by the Holy Spirit to carry out His mission to seek the
lost that they may come to new life as disciples of Christ. As we grow in our understanding of and
obedience to God's will, we will strive to help all believers discover and develop their gifts for
service. We are called to love one another in Christian unity, worshiping together, and living in a
personal relationship with God, so that we all may experience the joy of new life in Jesus Christ.
