Good News of God’s Love for Us

What is the gospel? The gospel is the “good news” about who God is and what He has done for us in Christ.  The gospel is different than religion because religion is advice on what you must do.  The gospel is good news about what God has done to love us.  This gospel has the power to radically change us now and forever.  This good news saves us from the penalty of our sin and the power that sin has on us.  This good news, when believed, is the one thing that has the power to change everything that sin has stained, including our relationship with God, with each other, and our world.  1 Corinthians 15:1-5; Romans 1:16-17; Revelation 21:1-5


Loving God

What is worship? Worship is what you give “worth” to that shapes you. Everybody worships something: either created things or the Creator Himself.  Worship is what we give our time, our energy, our thoughts, our money, and our possessions to.  Worship is what we sacrifice for that we think will satisfy us.  Because of who God is and what God has done for us in the gospel, we worship Him.  Everything we do is for His glory, that He might be proclaimed and made known as the only one who is worthy and who satisfies.Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 22:37; 1 Peter 4:10

Loving God's People

What is Family? God is a God of relationship, always existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  When He created Adam, He said it’s not good for man to be alone, so He gave him a wife and they became a family.  Jesus, our Savior, would be born through that family line.  All who believe in Jesus are adopted to be God’s children, brothers and sisters together with God as our Father.  Family is a place of belonging, a place of mutual love, service, care, and authenticity.  Ultimately the family of God is the demonstration to the world that, through the gospel, God can unite the most diverse of people.John 1:12; 1 John 3:1; Luke 8:21; Acts 2:42-47

Loving God's World

What is Mission? God was the first missionary, on a mission to reconcile a lost and broken world back to Himself.  Jesus was sent by the Father to the world He loves and Jesus then sends the church out into the world to proclaim and demonstrate the good news of His gospel. Mission is not just something done overseas, but rather it is done every day of our lives as we go about living where God has placed us.  The church does not exist for herself, but to be a light for all people so they can be reconciled back to the God who loves them.  John 20:21; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:17; 2 Corinthians 5:14-21; Galatians 2:10
