"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit."
We are a people who have
experienced God’s love and grace through Jesus Christ and simply want to share
his love with others. We want to follow
Jesus, make disciples and transform the world.
We want to share his love, ease burdens, and touch lives just as Jesus
did. We embrace Christ’s own vision for
the kingdom of God on earth for greater opportunity, equality and justice for
all. We want to be a part of reclaiming the dignity and sacred worth of every
human being just as Jesus did. We also acknowledge the gifts of God in creation
and our call to be good stewards of it. In all these ways, we experience the
goodness and kindness of God. As we come together in worship, we experience
joy to the praise and honor of God’s glorious name. We want you to know God
loves you and you are welcome here.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13: 1-13)
