For The Praise OF HIS Glory
Having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory.

We were created as people with a purpose, and that purpose is to live as accurate image bearers of our God's character and glory. The good news of God's Kingdom brought to man and fully realized through Jesus is the power of God to help us trust and obey our good, Loving, Father just as Jesus did. When the good news is declared compellingly from the Scriptures, amazing things happen. Lives are changed, peoples hearts and desires are changes, families are restored, neighborhoods are renewed, and whole cities and nations can become life giving places. So we will preach the good news (gospel). We will counsel with the gospel. We will celebrate the gospel in song. We will remember the gospel with bread and cup. We will learn to live in light of the gospel in every sphere of life.
