COME THIRSTY. BE REFRESHED.

You might be wondering, "just what exactly is The Jake?" ... Well, for starters:
We want to promote/foster/teach/proclaim an ever-increasing high view of God; our mantra for this comes from Jonathan Edwards: a God-entranced vision of all things. We desire to do all we can by God's grace to be authentic; to not play "churchianity". Hopefully, we rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Pivotal to our body life is our Wednesday night prayer meeting. We are excited to just be launching a small group ministry. Now would be a great time to get connected. We aim to be missional. It is very important that we connect with the church globally, for they can teach us much about passion for the King and we can do much to encourage them through our resources and Kingdom connections. We attempt to engage our community in creative and useful ways. Our community garden is such an engagement. We intend to be relevant in worship style. We have a praise band which sings all kinds of worship music. We often show movie clips to support or introduce the message. and messages often engage those in attendance dialogically.

What We Believe

We believe in majoring in the majors and minoring in the minors.

IN ESSENTIAL BELIEFS - WE HAVE UNITY

There is one Body and one Spirit ... there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all ...
Ephesians 4:4-6

IN NON-ESSENTIAL BELIEFS - WE HAVE LIBERTY

Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters ... Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls ... So then each of us will give an account of himself to God ... So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.
Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22

IN ALL OUR BELIEFS - WE SHOW LOVE

...if I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains-but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.
I Corinthians 13:2 (Philip's Translation)
