“Loving all for the Glory of Jesus Christ” emphasizes the two commandments that Jesus gave the
church; to love God and to love our neighbor.
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your
God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and
greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:36-40
"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands,
you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." John 15:9-12
The vision is more than a simple call to obedience; the vision serves to draw us into a love relationship with God.
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God
and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." (1 John 4:7, 8 NIV)
The words Relevant, Transforming, Biblical, and Incarnational in our logo keep us grounded in who we are as we participate in the work of the Holy Spirit.
Relevant, to be attractive to the community by providing fellowship, friendship, and activities
to connect and experience the love of God.
Transforming, to invite people on a journey to discover the love of God in Jesus Christ through
worship, discipleship, and missional opportunities.
Biblical, to be deeply committed to the traditional and historical understanding of authority of scripture
that has led the church in the power of the Holy Spirit in all ages to proclaim “Jesus is Lord!”
Incarnational, to be the church in our homes, neighborhoods, workplace, schools, local
communities and the world.
God has invited us to join Him in His Kingdom work and we are prepared to respond by compassionately ministering in our community and throughout the world, reflecting His Glory through the time, talents and resources He has provided.
