We believe in the local church as a place where believers can experience the Gospel of Jesus Christ by gathering together for worship, by building relationships, and by growing each other in ministry.

Our Vision

Continuing His Mission of growing disciples of Jesus Christ by living the Gospel through our daily actions:  to be salt and light as Jesus commissioned the church, His body on earth. -Matthew 5:13-14

Loving God With All Our Heart.     Loving Our Neighboor as Ourselves.     Loving the World by Serving.

       Love God              Love Others              Serve

 Jesus said, “Follow Me…”

You are the salt of the earth.” “You are the light of the world.”    Matthew 5:13-14

We are to BE love.      BE light.      BE salt.


At Living Gospel Church we follow Jesus by:

  1. Loving God With All Our Heart

Love God for all He is by getting to know Him, connecting with Him, and spending time with Him and His people in worship services.

“Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.”  -Mark 12:30

Becoming a disciple:   Attend weekly worship services

Initiate and foster a relationship with God by joining others in worship and fellowship.

“Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” -Matthew 11:28-30

    2. Loving Our Neighbors as Ourselves

Love others as Jesus did, connecting through relationships, and teaching the Gospel.

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” -John 13:35

 Growing as a disciple:   Join a small group

Build deep and trusting relationships through small group fellowship.

Examples: start with studying His Word with your own family, join small group Bible studies, attend men’s, women’s and youth groups, connect with one on one mentoring.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         “To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we reach unity in the faith, become mature, and attain the fullness of Christ.” -Ephesians 4: 12-13

     3. Loving the World by Serving

Build and strengthen other disciples through loving, learning, teaching, and serving to and through one another according to each of your spiritual gifts.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Matthew 28:19

       Serving as a Disciple:   Serve God and serve others as Jesus did

“Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” - John 13:14-15
