We are on a journey of learning how to love God, ourselves and others!
God is love and created us in His image. Therefore, we are created by God to love like He does. God loves us so much that He wants to have an eternal relationship with us. We don't have to beg God to love us. We don't have to earn God's Love. God is eager and willing to forgive and accept into His eternal family anyone who will believe in and follow His Son, Jesus Christ.
The goal of the Christian life (and therefore, the church) is to let God transform us to love Him, ourselves and others.
Too many times, we focus on changing our behaviors rather than focusing on knowing Jesus Christ and letting Him transform our hearts and minds. The Bible says the world will know we are disciples of Jesus by our love. The fruit of the Spirit is Love. All that Matters is faith in Jesus that expresses itself in love.
So, How do we do that? We learn to Worship - Grow - Serve!
