Our mission is given to us by Jesus: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and in the name of the Son and in the name of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20a). His last command is our first priority and we will never change this purpose of the church.The way we live that out is by being a church grounded in a vision that guides who we are, and who we seek to become. We want to be a congregation of people whose lives are rooted in the life of Jesus. We believe that Jesus was God in flesh; that by looking at Him, we see what God is like, and what God does. So, as a church, we seek to know God and learn about God by looking to Jesus and learning from Him. Therefore, we value the Bible and its teachings as it points us to the person and the practices of Jesus.These teachings and practices of Jesus lead us to our vision: Loving, Living, and Leading like Jesus.
The purpose of the prison ministry is to share the "good news" of the gospel with those lost souls that are currently in prison and encourage the saved souls that are confined as well. This ministry is also intended to provide for the physical needs of the inmates and their families as the opportunity allows.
Some of the services provided by this ministry include:
Participating in The Bridge Aftercare Ministries at Roederer Correctional Complex, a six-month program helping men prepare for re-entry.
Providing clothing and toiletries for those inmates who do not have any form of financial support from friends or family outside the prison.
Preparing a meal once a month for one of transitional houses operated by Prodigal Ministries for men or women released from prison.
