Starting Grounds Church:
To Know God:
We believe that we were created to seek a deep and ever-growing relationship with God that impacts every aspect of our being and conduct. For us, this includes seeking to understand the character and nature of God as He reveals himself through His word. We also desire to seek His will for our lives and to live accordingly – growing closer to Him through prayer and service to others.
To Make Him Known:
We seek to tell those among whom we are placed about the grace, mercy, and forgiveness that is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. This includes engaging people in thoughtful conversations about the nature of God and living lives defined by a holy and God-honoring character. We seek to demonstrate the compassion and generosity of God in all that we do and to make our love for one another an example of God’s love for all of His children.
We seek to live purposeful lives toward the aim of engaging the community in which we are placed with the life-giving message of Jesus.
We seek to help people to grown into a deep, life-changing relationship with God that colors every aspect of their lives.
We seek to live in such a way as to be an example of God’s glory and majesty to those among whom we are place in order that by seeing us they see a picture of Him.
We seek to help others to identify and implement the unique calling of God on their lives.
We seek to demonstrate the grace, mercy, compassion, and forgiveness of Jesus to those among whom we live.
