We strive to be passionate about our Christian living. Here, we seek to enable people to live Christ-like lives – lives reflecting Christ-like values – of humility, love, and forgiveness. We seek to encourage prayer, renew faith, deepen people’s commitment to God, empower people to use their Spirit given gifts, and create a Christian community where mutual support is found. We seek to provide support so that people could live transformed lives – lives changed by the Spirit from being worldly to being godly, from being self-centered to being self-giving, from being detached from God to being aware of God’s life giving presence, from being resigned from the community of faith to being fully engaged in the life of this congregation – in all, from just living to being truly alive in Christ (“newness of life.”)
Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God– what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 6:3-4 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
