Jesus was once asked what was the most important commandment in all of Scripture. He answered, “‘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’” (Mt. 22:37-39). The most important things in all of life relate to loving God and loving people. The heart of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ is to love and seek God and to love people. Therefore, as a church, these two elements are at the heart of who we are as a church.
Loving God: We exist to seek God, to passionately pursue God in all that we do and all that we are. Seeking God, pursuing Him, loving Him, worshiping Him, surrendering our lives to Him, growing in relationship with Him, living lives that bring honor to Him are all aspects of this component of our vision.
Loving people. The evidence of the fact that we are loving God and seeking Him is in our love for other people. We believe that as a church, we exist not for ourselves but for other people. Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”(Jn. 13:35). Loving others encompasses creating authentic relationships, serving the community, accepting people as they are and encouraging them to live transformed lives.
Rocking the world: Before He left His disciples, Jesus gave them the following instructions:“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The final aspect of who we are as a church is a passion for seeing people’s lives changed through the message of life in Jesus Christ. We seek to make the most of every opportunity to build relationships with people, loving them, and ultimately sharing our faith with them. As a church, we will always seek creative and fun ways to communicate the gospel to our culture, whether in North Texas or around the world.
