Our Mission


Our mission is to participate in the ongoing ministry of Christ to Gainesville and the surrounding community.


Christ is Present

Christ did not leave us as orphans (John 14:18, but has ascended to be with us through his Spirit (Eph. 4:9-14). He intentionally designed and established his church as the place where he may be found. Christ now actively brings his redemption to the world through the church (John 20:21). 

Christ's Mission

Christ came to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). Christ's mission is and was a gospel mission. The church must never have a mission separate from Christ's mission. This means the focus of everything we say and do is gospel-centered.

Christ's Body

Scripture emphasizes that the local church is not just a gathering of people remembering Jesus. We are the very Body of Christ. This means we experience Christ fully when we participate in the local church.
