"Follow the pattern of sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you."
(1 Timothy 1:13-14)
We have been enstrusted with the message of the gospel. This gospel drives both our mission and vision and doctrine as a local church. Our mission statement briefly expresses why we exists; our vision statement captures who we aim to be as we pursue this mission.
We exist to joyfully surrender our lives to Jesus Christ through God's Word, together proclaiming the gospel to all peoples for the glory of God.
Our vision is to be a faithful and fruitful local church magnifying the glory of God through the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ for our neighborhoods, the twin cities area, and the world.
Our doctrinal commitments are stated in two documents (which we affirm through our association with the Treasuring Christ Together Network): the Congregational Affirmation of Faith, and the Elder Affirmation of Faith. The Congregational Affirmation of Faith is what we affirm for church membership. Consistent with these statements, the Elder Affirmation of Faith is a more thorough expresssion of doctrine affirmed by our elders.
