Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked up to a handful of men and said, Follow me.
Following Jesus is not about diligently keeping a set of rules or conjuring up the moral fortitude to lead good lives. It is about loving God and enjoying Him.
Jesus was clear about His purpose on earth: The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. (Luke 19:10). Similarly, our calling is focused on reaching those who do not know God.
God has placed our church in the midst of a broader community so that He can spread His love, hope, and healing into the lives of the people around us.
