We believe God has clearly called us to observe and measure all that we as a body of believers do by two core principles: These are the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.

 

Jesus gave us the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen."

 

Jesus laid out the Great Commandment when asked what is the most important command from God.  His answer is recorded in Matthew 22:37-40, "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."

 

 

One the basis of these two keys, we believe that A GREAT COMMITMENT TO THE GREAT COMMANDMENT AND THE GREAT COMMISSION WILL BUILD A GREAT CHURCH.
