We are CONNECTIONS
When it came time for choosing a church name, the leaders considered what God was already doing in their midst. God is relational. Without connections, relationships die. With connections, life is given. This is at the core of who we are.
Connecting with God: Intimacy with Our Father
"I will be in them..."
We call it connecting with God. God wants to connect with us. God wants to be in relationship with us. God desires a people that are pursuing Him with all their heart. Out of that connection is a heart that loves others and the world. Our first objective is to connect with our Father.
Connecting with Others: Community Within
"...So that they will be completely one..."
We call it connecting with each other. If there should be a safe place where we can connect with each other and build authentic relationships, it should be the church. A place where we can commit to one another to help each other, care for each other, support each other.
We are intentional about building relationships with a group of believers in a way that allows us to experience accountability, a sense of belonging, and care.
Connecting with Our World: Reaching Out
"...Then the world will know that you sent Me and that you loved them just as much as you loved me."
We call it reaching out. We intentionally care for those outside our spiritual family. We recognize we have been commissioned to transform and lead others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our relationships extend beyond families of Connections. There is a world out there that needs us. There are people that need to hear about our Jesus. There are people that practical needs to be met. There are people that are hungry, lonely, lost…people that need to know that we care and Jesus loves them.
Connections makes it a priority to connect with our world. We look outside the relationships that we have here and seek to help others.
We are committed to reaching out. We will commit to share our faith wherever we may be. Our lives will be living examples of the love that Jesus has for people. Our approach is to invest and invite. We first invest in the lives of people. Basically, we care for people. We love people. We invest in their life…and then invite them to see what Jesus has done for them.
Our commitment is to remain cognizant of those around us…invest in their lives…and invite. We simply allow the Father’s love for people to flow from us to everyone around
