GROWING TOGETHER in Christ’s love: Jesus prayed that His disciples would be one, just as He and His Father are one (John 17:21). That’s Christ’s desire for us – to grow together in faith and love. It’s why we come together in worship and praise of our one true God. It’s why we make the most of the opportunities He gives us each day to love Him along with those He’s placed in our life (Matthew 22:37-40). Living together as a community of grace, we are devoted to the study of God’s Word, to fellowship, to sharing in meals, and to prayer (Acts 2:42). And as we serve and care for each other as family, we each have a part in helping each other grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love (Ephesians 4:15-16).
