Our church is committed to carrying out the Great Commission recorded in Matthew 28:18-20, while living out the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:34-40.
Matthew 28:18-20 New International Version (NIV)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore 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.”
Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “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.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Therefore, in our love for God and others, we shall be primarily concerned with making disciples of Jesus Christ. This goes beyond reaching people for Christ and includes teaching, equipping and developing them in their relationship with God and his mission of redemption. Reaching people for Christ means calling them to repentance and baptizing them on their confession of faith. Reaching people isn’t just being kind and doing deeds of love and compassion although our kindness and care will demonstrate our authenticity.
We are a growing, relational community of passionate, biblically faithful, Christ followers who are deepening in our love for God and leading our friends, neighbours and world to Him.
