2 Timothy 3:16-17

by leading people into appropriate biblically acceptable forms of worship.
by equipping church membership for biblically accurate evangelism and discipleship.
by investing a significant portion of the money God gives us stewardship over in missions locally and across the world.
by loving brothers and sisters in the Lord with a love that will promote unity in the Church and elicit favorable thoughts of Christ in the watching world.
by obeying the commands of the Lord Jesus in faithful biblical observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
by teaching and engaging in a culture of biblical service to believers and unbelievers as well which would include loving our neighbors regardless of who they are.
