Port of Grace Community Church
We are POG!
Some of us have been following Jesus for a while, some have just begun, and some are still seeking. But we're all in it together, because we believe the faith journey is not something to be lived alone, but together, in relationship with other followers of Jesus Christ.
But make no mistake, this isn't just about doing church together, we want to follow Jesus the way Jesus calls us to follow Him.
LOVING GOD, LOVING PEOPLE
When Jesus was questioned on what the greatest commandment was, he responded, the first is to Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. The second is like it, to love your neighbour as yourself. Later he expanded on this when he told his disciples, "A new commandment I give to you, love one another as I have loved you." Jesus said that all other commandments and all other teaching was covered in these two commandments. As a result and as Christ-followers, we want to obey His commandments, realizing that to obey Him is to love Him.
"We want to follow Jesus the way
Jesus calls us to follow Him!"
What our mission means to us...
We want God to be first in all things! We really want God to be the One who has the right to tell us how to live. The One we live to honour with each and every step that we take, individually and together.
We want to love others as Jesus loved us. Certainly we choose to love others by beginning with our brothers and sisters in Christ, in obedience to the Bible's teaching. However, loving others also means helping all others in whatever ways we can. This leads us to try to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs whenever we're able.
We want to make disciples. We believe the greatest way we're called to love others is through obedience to Jesus' great commission to go and make disciples. In this way, our mission means that we are committed to being and becoming whole heartedly surrendered disciples, leveraging all we are, all we have, and all we do, to make more disciples.
