Discipleship and Faithfulness
We believe that the distinguishing characteristic of those who live in God’s Kingdom is Christ-likeness.
Discipleship is the fundamental ministry of the local church which facilitates the development of such people.
Love for others displayed in ministering to the poor, reaching out to people who are spiritually lost, serving others, practicing forgiveness, and the like are all signs of the presence of God’s Kingdom and ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Those with genuine faith are known by the fruit of their lives and their pattern of faithfulness to Jesus and His commandments.
Thus, the local church becomes a counter-culture community, whose members live Christ-centered lives.
