OUR MISSION:

Our Mission at Knox is to KNOW, LOVE, SERVE, and SHARE, Jesus Christ.

KNOW: The first step in faith is knowing God through Jesus Christ. This is where it all begins. The bible declares that, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 As followers of Christ we strive to know him in ever deeper ways.

LOVE: When Jesus enters your life he begins to transform you from the inside out. First he implants within you a deeper love for God, and then he moves on to love for others. “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39

SERVE: Jesus set the example of service when he stooped and washed the feet of his disciples. In obedience he also did the will of his Father in heaven. In the same way strive to serve God and others (Rom 12:7). In so doing we follow the example of the One who gave all, even his life, for us.

SHARE: At Knox we have a great wealth to share. First of all, we have good news to share about God’s love and mercy for the world. Second, we have a myriad of gifts and talents to share. Finally, we are financial stewards who believe in radical generosity. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17

 

OUR VISION:

Knox is a growing community of disciples radically devoted to Christ, irrevocably committed to one another and relentlessly dedicated to sharing the hope that is within us.
