First and foremost, we want to connect people to Christ. It's why we're here! There is literally nothing in this world that could be more important than the decision to place your eternal destiny in the hands of Jesus Christ. We believe that God loves us and that he sent his son to earth to die on a cross as the only sacrifice that could atone for our sins. Sharing this good news is our number one priority.
1 Corinthians 12 describes the church as the Body of Christ. Colossians 1:18 adds that Jesus is the head of that body. While our priority is to connect people to Christ, we believe that God's intent is for his people to be connected to the church. Two things happen when you are a part of the church. First, we are a part of the body with a purpose and a role; we contribute something to the whole (1 Corinthians 12). Second, you inherit a family; brothers and sisters as well as a good Father who loves you (Ephesians 1).
We want to help believers learn what it means to be a part of the family of God - a family every bit as real as our earthly families.
Christ's Church doesn't exist in a vacuum. We are part of a local community and a global community. Matthew 5:14-16 says that we are a city on a hill - our job is to shine a light out for the whole world to see.
As a part of our local community, we are always looking for new opportunities to reach out and serve those around us. We want to open the door to share our message with our neighbors by letting the love of Christ show through us.
As a part of our global community we support many missions here in America and around the world. We focus our efforts in areas of the world where the Gospel is not often heard. Our goal is the same there as it is here in Greenville: to reach as many people as possible with the good news that God loves them and that Jesus can save them.
