Our 2018 Vision


From the World, For the World


The phrase “called out” reminds us that the church is the people called out “from the world” by the Gospel of Christ into relationship with God.  This special relationship involves living in a unique way, a conduct growing out of the very character of God, as revealed in the Bible.  The second part of our theme, “for the world,” reminds us that God’s people have a mission to those around them.  Rather than isolating ourselves in a sub-cultural bubble, we are also called “for the world,” commissioned to share Christ’s selfless love, grace, and salvation with our neighbors.
