Our make-up is a local body (diverse but unified) in Christ who is the foundation, cornerstone, and capstone of the universal organic Temple of God (1 Pet. 2:4-10).
Our motive is to encourage understanding of sound biblical revelation from which we draw practical application. We want to worship the Lord while He is transforming our lives and using us to transform others’ lives.
Our mission is to experience and express the ultimate Logos who is pure and eternal light, life, love, and logic (Jn. 1:,14; 1 Pet. 3:15).
Our methods require expressing God’s existence, will, and design to the world intellectually and lovingly (1 Pet. 3:15). Truth without grace is abhorrent and grace without truth is libertine. Thus our methods include engaging society lovingly and intentionally; equipping members to examine information critically; expressing claims accurately, artfully, and attractively; and encouraging genuine communion with transparency.
Our means require prioritizing and promoting His name and Kingdom through commitment to Christ (Matt. 16:24-26), construction in Christ (1 Pet. 2:4-5), communicating Christ (Matt. 5:16), and communion with Christ (Matt. 6:6; Jn. 13:34-35).
