Teaching and Practicing Truth
Jesus taught a lot about truth. He prayed that His disciples would be sanctified or set apart from the world in His truth (John 17:17). He taught that the truth would set us free (John 8:31). He taught that the location of our worship doesn’t matter, but that we worship in Spirit and truth (John 4:24). We are never perfect in our beliefs, but we always are striving to line up what we do with what’s taught in Scripture.
It is important to practice truth, but Jesus taught that having the right heart is the first step to being a disciple of Christ (Matthew 9:13, Matthew 5-7). We will speak the truth, but speak it in love (Ephesians 4:15). Love is the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:35-40) and the agent that binds us all together (Colossians 3:14).
We will never show favoritism to any person who comes into our assembly, but treat everyone with the same love that we would show toward one another (James 2:1-13). We want to make you feel welcome and a part of our family, and we do not desire to make you feel uncomfortable or judged. We do not expect you to agree with us, but simply desire for you to share in the great love and grace that He shows to His people.
