We aim to make our life together defined by three simple principles:
REACH THE WORLD
In LOVING GOD, first and foremost, at the center of our devotion and affection, the Spirit shapes us to be as God intended us to be: HIS. One of the primary ways we as a church express our love to the Lord is in our gathering to worship.
In LOVING PEOPLE, we show forth Christ and shine light into this dark world. We aim not only to love with superficial niceties but with a sacrificial love that surrenders self. To love with grace and truth, those in the body of Christ and those outside the body of Christ. One of the primary ways we as a church express our love towards people is in our regular gatherings in Sunday School, weekday studies, in organized fellowship and the natural fellowship that we share day to day.
In REACHING THE WORLD, we seek to be God's hands and feet, providing for the needs of the people we meet. We aim not only to address people's physical needs, but the spiritual needs we all share which are only answered in Jesus Christ. There are many ways we reach into the community of New Bern and into the world around us, and an overview can be found on our Missions Page.
