As part of the body of Christ, TLC has decided that our mission will be To Know Christ, To Serve Christ and To Make Christ Known to All.
We believe that the only way we can know Christ, is if the Holy Spirit calls us to Him (1 Corinthians 12:3). The Holy Spirit does this through baptism as we are given new life as God's children (John 1:12,13; John 3:1-8; Titus 3:5; Acts 2:38). We know Christ as we spend time in worship and study of His Word to learn more about who God is and what being His child means (Deuteronomy 6:4-9; John 6:63; 2 Timothy 3:14-17).
We believe that by knowing Christ and as our relationship with Christ grows and strengthens that the natural response is to preform acts of service. Christ tells us that the greatest commandments are Love the Lord your God and to love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40). When we love God we naturally will love our neighbor as well and look to help and serve them. By doing this we also serve and honor Christ and what He has done for us (Matthew 25:34-40).
We believe that as disciples of Jesus Christ we are called to make more disciples. Jesus' last command to His disciples before ascending back to heaven was for disciples to make more disciples (Matthew 28:16-20). We see that this is something God's people have done over and over again. It Started immediately after the Holy Spirit came on the disciples and continues till this day as, we disciples of Jesus Christ, tell others about the love that God has for them (Acts; Ephesians 3:14-21).
