O come, let us worship and bown down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. Psalm 95:6
From the beginning of time, God created mankind with the ability and desire to worship. Once sin entered the world, man began to worship and elevate other things and people in the place of God. God was fashioned in the likeness of man, and man worshipped the creation in the place of the Creator.
It is our desire to worship God, boldly and passionately, and to humbly bow our hearts before His throne not only as the One who Created us, but the One who loves us, cares for us, provides for us, and has made a way to be delivered from the bondage and penalty of our sin.
For as the body is one, nad hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12
God also created mankind with the desire and need for relationship. Scripture tells us that God spent time talking and fellowshipping with Adam and Eve in the beautiful garden that He had created for them - the Garden of Eden.
God's heart was broken when Adama and Eve chose to sin and their fellowship was broken, but He already had a plan in place to make a way for their relationship to be restored. This plan unfolded through the pages of Scripture leading to the time where Jesus Christ - the Son of God - the second person of the Godhead - gave His life to be the substitute not only for the sin of Adam and Eve, but for the sin of all mankind. Our passion is to introduce others to Christ, and to share His love and the offer of His free gift of salvation to all.
God desires us to develop in our relationships with others around us as well. He designed the local, New Testament church as a place where His family can gather each week to be encouraged and to grow in Him. God gives us the beautiful illustration that each local church is a representative of the body of Christ, and that the believers are its members. As its members, we are interdependent upon each other. It is our desire to provide a place where God's family can build meaningful and lasting relationships together through fellowship and small group bible study.
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:16
God designed man to have the need of work. We are introduce to God in Genesis 1 as the Creator who gave the example of working six days and then resting on the seventh day. God gave Adam and Eve responsibility to keep the Garden and to exercise their rule/authority over all that He had created.
As a member of the body of Christ, God has designed nd gifted each believer in a unique way. God desires us to work together as we serve Him and care for one another. The local church is a place that God has given where we can exercise our gifts and find our place of service together for God.
