Through the compelling love of Jesus, we recognize that evangelism cannot merely be an activity we do; it is who we are. Our aim as a church, then, is to embrace our identity as ambassadors of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:14-21).
Proclaiming the Gospel to others and calling them to repentance and faith
We recognize that only people who hear the gospel can be saved (Romans 10:9-17). Therefore, we will place a priority on the public preaching and proclamation of the message of Christ in our gatherings. And, because this message requires a response, we will urge people to repent and believe.
As individuals we will prioritize the cultivation of opportunities for the gospel by maintaining lives worthy of the gospel, developing redemptive relationships with non-Christians, by displaying our unity and love for each other, and by serving our community and neighbors in practical and compassionate ways.
