The church is not simply a building or even a group of buildings, but a family of believers who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The mission of the church, of that family, is not just to come together one day a week to worship their Lord and Savior, but to bear witness each and every day of their earthly lives to the power of Jesus to change lives and save souls from eternal loss. The goal of this mission is that none be lost but that all come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and share in the eternal salvation He offers. The church, that family of believers called Christians must through their every word and deed praise the name, power and grace of Jesus Christ and help bring others into that saving knowledge so that the family of believers continues to grow in numbers and faith and continue to glorify their Lord and Savior.
