As we wrap up the 2011 Advent Celebration's first stage, we are looking back at the story of the incarnational work of Jesus. It's far too easy to exclude folks that are on what we would call the fringe, and yet, when we look at the example of Jesus we are faced with the reality of His incarnational life. In order to grow & mature out of who we are in Him, we must not only recognize this, but also respond.
We strive to be a community of faith, love, and hope. One of our core convictions is that the church is on mission.
Before the foundations of the world, Jesus Christ chose to be sent by the Father to earth to accomplish salvation for His people. Christ became a man at the Incarnation, achieved the righteousness that we could not achieve, paid the price that we could not pay, and has given us His righteousness for our sin. Now, as he prayed in the garden to the Father on the eve of his death, He has sent us into the world in the same way that He was sent into the world. Our mission is God's mission: to bring the Gospel to those who have not heard. We have been sent. We, as the church, are now the presence of Christ in this world, bringing light to the dark places.
