The purpose of this church is to bring glory to God (Isaiah 42:8; 43:7; Ephesians 3:20-21; Romans 11:36). On the authority of His Word, this church will seek to glorify God by:
- Exalting Jesus Christ as the Son of God and only way of salvation (Acts 4:12; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8,9);
- Equipping believers with attitudes, actions and aims that are Christlike (Ephesians 4:11-16; Colossians 1:28-29);
- Evangelizing unbelievers across the street and around the world (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20);
- Expecting the return of Christ so as to live blameless and holy lives (II Peter 3:11-13; Hebrews 9:28).
