WHAT WE BELIEVE

Our Mission – Calling all to love God, follow Jesus, and serve others.

TO LOVE GOD…

It is our mission to help others grow in their love for God through relevant Biblical teaching, vibrant worship services, frequent prayer, and meaningful relationships with other believers. It is our desire to foster a community of believers who love God completely and whose hearts are captivated by Him alone.

TO FOLLOW JESUS…

It is our mission to help others follow Jesus through providing opportunities for believers to engage in relationships with each other that furthers the spiritual growth of all. It is impossible for us to fully grasp the heart of our Savior without the presence of fellowship with the people He cares about.  Through accountability and encouragement, we want to be a church family that is intentional about discipleship and speaking into the lives of others.

TO SERVE OTHERS…

It is our mission to serve one another and others in our circles of influence through our Prayer, Care, Share model. We want to reach out to our communities and the world, through persistent intercession, meeting tangible needs, and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. In order to bring hope to Rhode Island, we need to follow the example of Christ, explained in Mark 10:45—to serve, not be served, sacrificing our lives for others.
