Our work in this reconciliation movement of restoration and salvation is to be and make disciples. By accepting the invitation to be like Jesus, who lived out forgiveness and compassion, healing and illumination, mercy and grace, joy and love, freedom and resurrection, we enter into endless opportunities happening around us.
A disciple is one who is intentionally following Jesus, becoming like Jesus, and living like Jesus in community with others on mission.
Jesus entered into a tradition of the time and faithfully called people out to be part of the work of God. Jesus believed in people and entrusted the work of God into their hands. By the power of the Spirit filling men and women, the work of God is being carried out to this day.
While the term "Christian" means many things to many people, we hold to a simple meaning, of being followers of Jesus Christ. Through his Spirit and through Scripture, we seek to encounter Christ as friend, teacher, guide, healer, and savior. Different traditions are found among us, but we unite in our common quest to experience the grace of God as he reaches out to us with the love of Jesus Christ, his Son.
