Our mission at Agape is to CELEBRATE the love of God, CONNECT in Biblical community, and CONTRIBUTE in service for Christ. Below is a breakdown of what the 3 “C”s mean and how our purpose statement plays out into the life of the church on a weekly basis.
Celebrating the love of God is our response to God’s love for us and our new life in Christ. We see it as not just singing a song, but a lifestyle and we can Celebrate by doing all things as an offering back to Him. One of the ways, as a church we do this corporately, is during our Sunday morning service. We come together to lift our praises to God in music, prayer, giving back to Him, and partaking in the Lord’s Supper. We are also inspired, equipped, and challenged through the preaching of God’s Word. You can find out more about our Sunday services by checking the link directly below.
Connecting in Biblical community is about deepening our relational connection with our Heavenly Father and other followers of Jesus Christ. God has called us to live everyday connected to Him relationally and to grow in spiritual maturity to become more like His Son Jesus. We do this by spending time daily reading His Holy Word, talking to Him in prayer, and allowing His Spirit to transform us. The second part of connecting has to do with doing life together with other followers of Jesus. When we do life together we can encourage, love, pray, and serve one another as we live out our new life in Christ. This why we believe wholeheartedly that we should be a part of a connect group of 6-12 people, where you can be in an environment that allows us to do life in authentic relational community.

Contributing in service for Christ is exercising your unique gifts, abilities, opportunities, influence, and skills to advance God’s work on earth. We have been saved to serve our Lord, who is the greatest servant of all. He demonstrated this humbleness by giving His life, so we may have eternal life and hope. As His Church, we have been called to partner with Him as His agents of hope to the world by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of all mankind. We can accomplish this by serving in our church, our community, our country, and countries around the world. Here at Agape we are passionate about making an impact in our community, and around the world. We have developed ministry teams to meet specific needs, so that everyone can contribute using their gift to fulfill the call to impact our community.
