Ours is a congregation, which desires to reflect the preeminence of Christ in all things through the power of the Holy Spirit unto the glory of God the Father.
So we preach Christ crucified in all of Scriptures as the only Redeemer of the world, able to forgive us of our sins, no matter how big or many; able to transform us, no matter how broken or vile; able to unite us, no matter how diverse our backgrounds; and able to give us true joy and peace, no matter what our circumstances may be.
We believe that our mission is impossible apart from the life-giving, life-transforming power of the Holy Spirit, which is made available to us through prayer.

There is also that important dimension of community. God said that it was not good for the man Adam to be alone. So He made him a helpmate, Eve. God, too, as a triune God--one God in three Persons--is a community in and of Himself. It is no wonder that man, who is made in God's image, is a social being. He is not meant to live alone. Craving for a sense of belonging and community is not a sign of weakness; it is an inherent part of our being.
For human beings, their social nature indicates their interdependence. We cannot do it all. We are not meant to do it all. We need one another. Even Adam needed a helpmate--and we are talking about the time before the Fall, before Adam was left with all kinds of limitations and flaws as a result of the Fall. Eve needed Adam, too. Our interdependency has become even more pronounced in our modern society as a result of the specialization of labor. This reflects how God has bestowed differing gifts on each person and called each of us to our unique and various calling(s) to fulfill in different stages and areas of our life.
