Sermons in “This Is Us”
We believe the community called church is a new family. This means we intentionally invite people to become a part of our life together. As well, we foster an environment in which we openly share what is happening in our lives with each other and seek to respond to each other with love and concern. We also seek to be a place of healing for all people (Mark 3:34–35; Acts 2:44–45; James 2:15–17, 5:13–16).
Am I fully participating in this new community called the church?
We believe that mission is the reason for the church’s existence. Scripture describes God’s great mission to redeem and renew all of his creation, particularly humanity. God has called us to participate in that mission, in the power and under the direction of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18–20; John 20:21; Acts 1:8).
Am I engaging in God’s mission within my sphere of influence?
