Engage Church exists to Make Disciples who Make Disciples
Four visional focuses:
One moment in God's presence can change everything!
We believe everyone has unique God given gifts and abilities.
Connect with Others:
Life is not meant to be lived alone!
Make an Impact:
We will make an impact in our families, workplace, community, and around the world.
Relationships- Life is not meant to be lived alone! We believe connecting with others will create a community of disciples leading to spiritual maturity.
Generosity- We give of our time, talent, and treasure with the goal of spreading the love of Jesus both locally and abroad. Not because we have to, but because we get to!
Spiritual Integrity- We live our lives in a manner that will point people towards Jesus, especially when no one is looking! We run every situation, circumstance, and decision under the spiritual guidance of the Holy Spirit and God’s Word.
We Celebrate- We are a church that celebrates all areas of life and ministry!
We celebrate those who faithfully give of their time to serve others.
We celebrate along side families during milestone moments big or small.
We celebrate every guest and life that is awakened and transformed!
Families- Your family is your first and most important area of ministry. We believe healthy families make a healthy church and a healthy church makes a healthy community.
Excellence- We strive to go beyond “good enough”. We take the time to plan appropriately and think through every detail in order to exceed expectations.
