to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
God created us all for the purpose of relationship—and Home Church is committed to helping bring people into relationship with God and with others through the Christ-centered community of the Church.
"The Son of Man has come to seek and save that which is lost." (Luke 19:10)
Following Jesus is an ongoing commitment. From declaring our trust in Him and getting baptized, to sharing our faith with friends and inviting others to church—it's something we can strive to do each day.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8)
Spend Time with God
God invites us to spend time with him on a regular basis. We can do this through prayer, music, reflection, and reading the Bible.
"I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5)
Connect in Community
God created us to have relationships with others. We encourage attenders to connect to their campus community by joining a small group, serving, or even just saying hello to someone new in church.
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Share God’s joy and love by serving others—in your home, church, neighborhood, and around the world. Discover your God-given gifts to learn how God has uniquely wired you to serve others.
Use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14)
God has called us to live generously. We can do this by sharing our time, talents, and finances.
I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. (Philemon 1:6)
