We worship God Who exists eternally in Three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In understanding that God is triune, we recognize that God is communal. The Godhead has perpetually dwelt in perfect harmony, unity, joy, love, and bliss. Since man bears the image of God in creation, we are called to reflect this reality and live in community as we show forth this image to others.
Gospel-centered community is a radical call amid a culture of mere church attendance and paying lip service to the commands of God. Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is not individual or private. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. It calls for mutual love, consistent care, and real transparency as we seek to adorn the person and work of Christ with our lives. We were made for community - relating with God and with each other.
So the local church is not merely a place where we attend, but a people to whom we belong. The Bible calls us members of Christ's body with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people. Where these elements are lacking, we have moved away from gospel-centered community and into the realm of social clubs. But in fellowship with Christ and each other, we share life together for the enjoyment, encouragement, and replenishment of the church.
Our focus is to cultivate Godly committed relationships and build up the Body of Christ.
