Pattern of Reverence

 
“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Colossians 3:17
 
God speaks to His people, and we want to follow His lead! We believe that developing spiritual disciplines like prayer, fasting, reading of scripture, and worship allows us to stay connected to the will, word and worship of God. As individuals and as a family, we are growing together by setting a pattern of reverence.
Pattern Of Reverence

 We Choose You 

We Choose You
“?So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.?”?
John 12:34-35
 
God sent His Son to a broken world to reconcile a sinful people to Himself. Out of His great love, He chose to make us sons, daughters and heirs to His eternal kingdom. Just as God chooses us to partner in His plans, we choose you to be part of our family. Welcome home!
 

There Is No Meeting If There Is No Eating

“?So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord?”?
Acts 2:46-47
 
Jesus taught us to love others by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs. He regularly broke bread with his disciples and the multitudes. He also taught that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matt. 4:4). Whether you are being fed spiritually or physically, our family believes that there is no meeting if there is no eating!
No Meeting If There Is No Eating

Attitude of Gratitude 

Attitude of Gratitude
 
“?Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”?
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18?
 
God is good! We are grateful for His mercy, love and grace, and we celebrate His faithfulness. Whether we are serving in the community or sharing our gifts with others, we act with an attitude of gratitude!

Participation Is Better Than Observation

“?But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into him who is the head—Christ. From him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.”
Ephesians 4:16
 
Each of us plays a valuable role in the body of Christ. As we serve together, live in community together and worship together, we demonstrate His love for a broken world. We believe that when it comes to sharing the word and love of God, participation is better than observation!
