Purpose: God has made us to be a community of people who are like no other community on earth and the right response is to tell all the world of our God and what he has done through Jesus.
Who are we?
Through Jesus, the living stone, God our Father has made us into something absolutely wonderful.
We are a community of people chosen by God – set apart – As a priesthood we have free access to God – we are a part of His family.
But as a people who follow Jesus we must expect our message to cause offense – Jesus the living stone was and is rejected by many – many stumble over him – the message of the cross offends them.
What are we to do?
The wonderful reality of who we are effects everything about us.
As a new community – a spiritual family – we want to tell all the world about who our God is – what he has done for us – and what he could do for them.
Our life together is to be a spiritual sacrifice to God – a community life lived in a way that declares God’s praises.
