It’s all about Jesus. He is the beginning, the door into kingdom life and the end, our Bridegroom King and Eternal Spouse. He is the aim of our affection and holds the center of our attention. He is the unending source and constant sustainer for all of creation. To know him is eternal life and to love him is our highest calling. He is our model for all things; for life with God, in community and on mission in the kingdom.
Our vision is to KNOW JESUS and to MAKE HIM KNOWN!
Key Scriptures that form and fill our VISION:
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” (Jeremiah 31:33-34)
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. (John 1:14, 18)
Now this is eternal life: that they KNOW YOU, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent (John 17:3).
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge---that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:14-19).
But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. (Philippians 3:7-11).
But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ's triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing (2 Corinthians 2:14-16).
We want to see a generation know, trust, treasure, love, abide in, obey and practice the way of Jesus the King, in the power of the Holy Spirit, rooted in vibrant, committed communities of fellow disciples who spread the aroma of the knowledge of Jesus everywhere they go and live to see the kingdom of God come on earth as it is in heaven!
We long to be a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, loving church family that fosters an environment where every person can reach their full redemptive potential in God.
