OUR PURPOSE AT LOVE OF CHRIST CHURCH IS TO:
"Love God, Love Others, and Make Mature Disciples of Jesus."
We filter every idea, ministry, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn't help us meet our purpose, then we don't do it.
OUR STATEMENT OF PURPOSE IS BASED ON TWO TEACHINGS OF JESUS:
"'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.'" (Matthew 28:36-39)
"Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefor go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'" (Matthew 28:18-20)
LOVE OF CHRIST CHURCH EXISTS TO:
- Worship God with sincere expression.
- Share the Good News of Jesus with others.
- Connect with other believers in meaningful relationships.
- Prepare disciples to fulfill their purpose.
- Encourage leaders in their God-given destiny.
