For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Jesus Christ gives us the Great Commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” and “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37, 39) Our congregation’s vision statement (create a community of authentic believers and to witness a city transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel ) and mission statement (grow together in Christ through prayer, worship and education, and to spread the love of Christ to our community.) echo these words of Jesus. We live out this love for neighbor by reaching out to the community that surrounds us.
