Minding My Own Business!!
We believe each individual has a calling, a "business" God entrusts to them, and we believe that business has two parts. The first part is being God's friend, and one of the most powerful ways to consistently do that is to surround yourself with healthy Christ following people. We refer to this idea as the "pool" part of our church.
The second part of your business is to bring the life of Jesus Christ to others, helping others be God's friend. We cannot help someone we do not know or someone we do not spend time with; we believe God has some people in your life He wants you to help know Him. We call this part the "river" part of our church.
