PURPOSE: Because we believe the following: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” ― A.W. Tozer
We believe that it is our purpose to help people get to know God better by encouraging them to renew their mind to the truth of God:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV)
We believe that community, whether it is one on one or in a small group environment are two of the best ways that we can grow in our knowledge of God:
24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 New King James Version (NKJV)
Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
As people’s minds are renewed they get to know God, leading to loving God more, which leads to becoming more like God, which leads to loving themselves more, which leads to loving others more.
