The Local Church (how God is glorified through his people)
We believe the local church exists to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches that share the same vision. We believe the local church is a community of regenerated believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. They have been reconciled to God and to one another, through the work of Jesus Christ, and are given a new life with God and one another. In obedience to the Bible they organize under qualified leadership, gather regularly for preaching and worship, observe baptism and Communion as biblical sacraments, are unified by the Holy Spirit, are disciplined for holiness, and scatter to fulfill the Great Commandment (to love God and man) and the Great Commission (to make disciples of all Nations) as missionaries to the world for God’s glory and their joy.
