Our goal is to be like the church described in the Bible. Through study of the scriptures, and prayer, we hope to understand the principles taught in the Bible and obey the commands God has given to us. We hope to grow closer to God and use our knowledge of the scriptures and our relationship with God to help guide us on the journey to understanding God’s will and applying it in a meaningful way in our lives. 
     We do this to please God, not to earn salvation, because salvation is a gift from God given to all people if we will just obey it, follow his commands, and become children of God. We also hope in the process of trying to please God we will serve our community and the world while spreading the good news about the gift that God has given to us. We do this to help others, and also because it is a great personal blessing to be able to serve God and help others find him.
