Our New Name and Logo
Jesus said to me…
“To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.”
On January 1, 2020 we were pleased to introduce our new name and logo.
Jesus Christ is the center of our church and the center of our lives. Christ is our source of Living Water that purifies us and gives us a new life. God’s Living Word in us transforms us, sustains us and wells up to eternal life. We cannot contain it! It flows out from us to others to quench the thirsty souls of those in our world, near and far.
Four arrows point inward and represent how we come together and create a new family to experience the love and grace through Christ.
The cross is a reminder of how we joyfully live to exalt Jesus Christ in response to his sacrifice and complete work of forgiveness.
Four arrows point outward to show our new purpose: we are to share the love of Christ and expand His Kingdom to the nations and our neighbors.
The spring represents Jesus, the Living Water, that flows through us, refreshes us, purifies us, completely satisfies us, and gives us eternal life.
Family is part of our name because it reflects our new purpose and our mission: Church as a Family on Mission. When we are born again through Christ, we are given a new life and a new family. Being part of the family of God means having new relationships and being part of something bigger than ourselves. Galatians 3:26 says, “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”
Our mission is simple: Love God, love others, and make disciples of Jesus Christ wherever we go.
