We love God by knowing God. We grow in our knowledge of God through the Bible and learning how He is reconciling the world to Himself in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We abide by the Great Commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matt. 22:37).
We image Christ when we love others well. We invite the broken and suffering to come and receive hope and care. We demonstrate the ministry of presence as we rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn. As Jesus commands, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (Matt. 22:39).
We make disciples across all ages, and we send these disciples into their homes, neighborhoods, cities, and the nations. With all our efforts wholly dependent on God, we live out the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19–20).
