Community & Global Initiatives
We are called to "love our neighbor as ourself". In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, many of our neighbors live on the other side of cultural divides. We must intentionally move toward these neighbors, both locally and globally, to show the love of Christ, for the spread of the Gospel, and the building up of His church.
We are called to "equip the saints for the work of ministry". In part, this means helping the diverse members of the body of Christ serve God in every area of life, including their vocations. It also means training men and women to serve the church as lay leaders, scholars, pastors, and church planters.
We are called to "seek the good" of the communities in which God has placed us. This means recognizing the good in our cities and investing in God-honoring public endeavors. It also means recognizing the systemic problems, the marginalized communities, and the needs that we can help address.
