The purposes of our church are based upon the Great Commandment and the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. The Great Commandment tells us to love God and love others. The Great Commission tells us to reach and teach. These four priorities are spelled out in the acrostic: WIFE. It stands for Worship (loving God), Instruction (teaching), Fellowship (loving each other), and Evangelism (reaching). They are our reason for being. While there are many good things we could do, we evaluate our life and our success at being what Jesus has called us to be by these essentials. These priorities are reflected in our programs and opportunities for service.
