"We display the gospel of Jesus Christ by loving, growing, and serving as we go in Newark and throughout the world."
Knowing how much our heavenly Father loves us gives us a context in which to learn to love others. Understanding that He first loved us is the only context in which we will learn to love others.
Growing in Christ is a community project, not just a personal pursuit. Pike Creek is a community of believers that lives life together. Through small groups, mentoring relationships, subject-specific studies, and weekly times of worship together, we continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. We pray, celebrate victories, weep over our sin, and encourage love and obedience to Christ. We are committed to doing life together for the mutual benefit and accountability of all.
It is the high calling to share the good news of the gospel with those who do not yet know it. And when we proclaim it, we give all who hear us the glorious opportunity that was afforded to us: to be forgiven and accepted before a holy God.
We are commited to responding to God's work among us. We've had the privilege of watching God call multiple families and individuals from our church into local and foreign missions work—we rejoice in this! Our church sees this pattern as a responsibility to partner with these people in prayer, emotional, and financial support.
"For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things.
To Him be the glory forever!" - ROMANS 11:36
