Our mission as a church is to bring the powerful grace, joy, and hope found in Christ to those who have little hope. We believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the source of hope and strength in any and every circumstance. We desire to live out and share with our community the hope that has transformed our lives. Christ has inspired more love, compassion, courage, and healing than any figure in history. He has changed us and we believe His love, mercy, grace, and healing power will change our city if we humbly, courageously, and graciously serve each other.
At St. Andrews, we are inspiring our community to live out the hope found in Christ. We strive to do this through abiding in Christ, acting in faith, and developing authentic relationships.
What Does Abide in Christ Mean? To Abide in Christ is to have a deep, personal connection to Him through the Holy Spirit. Our friendship with God grows through worship, prayer, time in His Word, and experiencing His grace and guidance every day as we Act in Faith. Connection with Jesus also deepens when we Develop Authentic Relationships with other believers.
Why Develop Authentic Relationships? When we Develop Authentic Relationships with other believers, we experience the trust, compassion, and forgiveness that comes from knowing Jesus. With deep friendships, we can “come as we are” and accept others for who they are, while encouraging and challenging each other to Abide in Christ and Act in Faith.
How Do We Act in Faith? Acting in faith is learning how to let the Spirit guide and empower us to do the works “God has prepared in advance for us to do.” Our faith grows through Abiding in Christ, Developing Authentic Relationships, and learning through experience that when we follow God’s leading, we can fully trust Him to provide everything we need.
Starting with You
God wants a relationship with you. With each of us. You matter more to Him than you can ever fully realize.
Here at St. Andrews we seek to help you get to know Jesus in a way that changes and transforms your life. We are here to help you take your next step on your journey of faith. That next step could be growing in worship and devotion to Him, growing in relationship with others, learning how to serve and give generously, finding healing from life’s hurts, or discovering your God-given purpose.
We believe our youth and children are best served and mentored when they have multiple relationships with trusted adults in their lives. Our small groups and children and youth ministries are structured to provide those opportunities and relationships where our children and grandchildren are mentored in life and faith.
We have groups of all ages meeting throughout the week to help you and your family grow in faith together.
Growing in Service
We believe God has uniquely gifted each and every one of us with gifts, talents, and opportunities that help us live out His purpose in our lives. We are here to help you find ways to learn, serve, give, and develop your unique potential.
We are also dedicated to serving our community and world. We follow Jesus in this, who personifies giving up of oneself in order to help others and heal the hurts of our world today. You are welcome to join us and learn the joy that “it is better to give than to receive.”
