We teach that following Christ is the first priority for every person. A person who follows Christ will long to enjoy God and will have a desire to share that love for God with others. Proclaiming the inner change of life through an outward expression of water baptism by immersion is an act of obedience and expression of publicly following Christ. Continuing to grow by meeting with God’s people weekly to worship Him will be natural. (John 1:12; Acts 10:47-48; Galatians 3:27; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Acts 8:36-39; Hebrews 10:24-25)
We teach that the main way we love others is through meeting needs out of the generosity of the time, talents, and treasure that God has given us. This generosity enables us to follow the example of Christ and serve at both our church and anywhere God leads us in the world in order to proclaim the Good news of Jesus. (Galatians 6:10; Hebrews 6:10; Matthew 23:11; Mark 10:45)
We teach that every follower of Jesus is to be a multiplying disciple-maker. The making and growing of disciples happens through relationships, weekly Community Groups, Discipleship groups, and being sent out to the world to share the good news of Jesus with others. (Acts 5:42; 2 Timothy 2:2; Matthew 28:18-20)
