In Matthew 18:20, Jesus says, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." We believe this is a call for followers of Jesus to gather together as the church. When we gather, we are given the opportunity to build up and equip each other as we live out God's mission. This mission, as Jesus also says in the book of Matthew, is to "go and make disciples of all nations." Above all, we gather to bring glory to God, for this is why we were created by Him.
