THIS IS US

JANUARY 22, 2018 – MARCH 25,2018

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:  As a part of our church’s succession planning, a survey has been made available online that we would like all within the church community to complete – adults, teens, and children!  We want to hear from you about the strengths and needs of our church, and about what skills you desire in a lead pastor.

To obtain a link to the survey for adults/teens, or the one designed for children, email Deb Sword at the church office at dsword@belairnazarene.org.  This survey will be available until Saturday, March 24th.

 

“THIS IS US”:  A preaching and small group series focused on our new mission statement and core values.

Our mission statement reflects the same mission we’ve had, and it comes from Mark 12:29-31.  It is “Love Jesus, Love Like Jesus”.

Our core value statements are:

  • UNDESERVED FORGIVENESS: We believe in the love of God that redeems us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
  • TRANSFORMED LIVES: We believe in the power of God that transforms us through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
  • DEVELOPING HEART HABITS: We believe the Word of God and prayer are essential to our relationship with God, empowering believers to live according to God’s design.
  • ALL-IN SERVING: We believe God calls us to serve passionately and give generously to our community and the world.
  • GROWTH IN COMMUNITY: We believe the church should disciple those of all ages and backgrounds, encouraging believers to become more like Jesus lived and taught.
  • UNCONDITIONAL LOVE: We believe we are called to be a welcoming and accepting community of humble believers.
  • AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY: We believe we are meant to worship together as an expression of praise and thanksgiving to God.
