Our Mission is to guide people to live renewed lives in Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17 – This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life has gone; a new life has begun.
In God’s word is the promise of new life for those who belong to Jesus. Through
Jesus we can experience true life change. Our mission is to guide people through
this life renewal journey. We want to help you discover not only what it means to
belong to Jesus, but also how a relationship with Jesus will transform your heart,
alongside you every step of the way.
In our desire to function as a God honoring, life renewing church
we are committed to the following core values:
Intentional Growth – We believe that people are renewed in Christ when they are
committed to life renewal. Life renewal begins when we commit our lives to
Jesus, but it doesn’t end there. It is a lifelong journey of being formed into the
image of Christ ( 2 Cor. 3:18 ). Our goal as a church is to guide people into making
and following through with decisions, commitments and promises which will open
them to God’s Spirit doing the transforming work of forming them into the
likeness of Jesus.
Unfiltered Truth – We believe that people are renewed when they encounter the
truth of Christ. Jesus declared that the truth will set us free. Therefore, we seek to
be a church which not only unflinchingly shares biblical truth, but also a people
who are living embodiments of Christ’s truth.
Authentic Community – We believe that people are renewed in Christ when they
can be real not only with themselves, but also with other believers. Being real
opens the door to genuine community where God is able to provide healing,
encouragement, and accountability. As a result, we seek to be a church which fosters
authentic community by offering small groups where people can do life together.
Selfless Servanthood – We believe that people are renewed in Christ when they
are able to see and respond to the needs of others through selfless servanthood.
It is a way of putting faith into action by sharing Christ’s love through acts of
service. Our desire as a church is to serve our church body, our Garner
community, and our world in the name of Jesus.
