Why We Exist

God is love.

His love compels us to participate in reconciling the world to Him. 

Jesus sums up all biblical teaching and practice as loving God and loving others.

— 1 John 4:16; Exodus 34:6-7; 2 Corinthians 5:14-20; John 15:12; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:37-40; Romans 13:8-10

How We Operate

A cross rises out of pages

We center all beliefs & actions in God’s self-sacrificing love as portrayed in the Bible and perfectly embodied in the person of Jesus.

— Exodus 34:6-7; John 13:1-17, 34-35; 1Corinthians 13; Galatians 5:22-23;Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-3
A higher hand places a heart in a lower hand

As individuals, we regularly connect with God, allowing His love to fill & overflow from our hearts.

— Jeremiah 31:33-34; John 15:1-17
A person holds an umbrella over another person

We treat others as we would treat Jesus Himself, recognizing that whatever we do to others, we do to Him.

— Matthew 25:31-46; 1 John 4:19-21
A large central figure with a heart is surrounded by four smaller figures

Like Jesus, we seek to project love that inspires and attracts, rather than fear that manipulates or coerces.

Two people are equally weighted in balancing scales

We respect the image of God in each individual and honor their unique experiences, choices, and conscience.

Inside a shield, a group of people is protected by a raised fist

When in doubt, we choose to protect the oppressed over the oppressor, the vulnerable over the secure, the humble over the proud.
