CHURCH MISSION STATMENT

RESTORATION: "I will break the yoke off their necks and remove their shackles. I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow." Jeremiah 30:8, 31:13 "So I tell you that all her sins are forgiven, and that is why she has shown such great love." - Luke 7:47

INSPIRATION: Always be full of joy. Never stop praying. In whatever happens, always be thankful. This is how God wants us to live in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the work of the Holy Spirit. Do not treat Prophecy as something unimportant. But test everything; keep what is good and stay away from everything that is evil. - 1 Thessaionians 5:16-22

SALVATION: Is the deliverance from the dangers and destructive effects of sin in our lives. It is a free gift received by faith in Jesus Christ, not earned by any works we can do. - Ephesians 2:8

ELEVATION: Is to be lifted up to a better place. Through Jesus, we are elevated out of sin and into righteousness. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you at the proper time. - 1 Peter 5:6

 

UNITY: Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love,being in full accord and of one mind. - Philippians 2:2;    And above all these, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. - Colossians 3:14,   For as in one body we have many members and the members do not all have the same function, so we,  though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. - Romans 12:4-5;   I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. - John 17:23 

PEACE: Is defined as the freedom from disturbance - inner calm, or tranquility - and is promised to the believer who has faith in God and God's abilities. The peace of God, which surpasses all human comprehension, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:7
