You will bring water from rock for the community.
Numbers 20:8

We take our name from the Bible’s story of the archetypal Exodus journey during which the people of God came to a place in the desert wilderness where there was no water. Yet, it was there in a hostile wilderness that they experienced God’s provision of water for them and leadership into a new future. We trust in a God who still provides, renews and leads His people.

Through the Written Word we encounter the Living Word in the incomprehensible wonder of His love. We are mindful that knowledge, even of the Bible, “puffs up” while love “builds up” (1 Corinthians 8:1). We engage the Scriptures seeking to love more and know more of love. We purpose to search out God’s Word with both our minds and our hearts.[/vcex_feature_box][vcex_feature_box style=”left-image-right-content” heading=”Ecumenical in Outlook” content_width=”70%” media_width=”30%” tablet_widths=”fullwidth” phone_widths=”fullwidth” image=”8391″]We honor all followers of Christ who have gone before us, and all who are among us now. We have much to learn and receive from all who have a lived experience of God’s transforming love. By reaching out to embrace the universal Body of Christ we strive to balance orthodoxy (right belief) and right living (orthopraxy).

In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.
(Rupertus Meldenius, 1582 – 1651)[/vcex_feature_box][vcex_feature_box heading=”Experiencing the Living God” content_width=”70%” media_width=”30%” tablet_widths=”fullwidth” phone_widths=”fullwidth” image=”8316″]We thirst to know God and not just to know about Him. We long for a living experience of God. We believe that God breaks into our world on the holy ground of His Word, and seek through His Spirit a living encounter with Him there. We daily aim to love God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength (Mark 12:30).[/vcex_feature_box][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1471260962938{background-color: #eaeaea !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”8321″ css_animation=”bottom-to-top” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_hover=”opacity” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10891″ css_animation=”bottom-to-top” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” img_hover=”opacity” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”8320″ css_animation=”bottom-to-top” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_hover=”opacity” link=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” typography_style=”white” css=”.vc_custom_1468613277986{background: #bfbfbf url( !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text el_class=”large”]

The arms of God be around my shoulders,
The touch of the Holy Spirit upon my head,
The sign of Christ’s cross upon my forehead,
The sound of the Holy Spirit in my ears,
The fragrance of the Holy Spirit in my nostrils,
The vision of heaven’s company in my eyes,
The conversation of heaven’s company on my lips,
The work of God’s church in my hands,
The service of God and the neighbor in my feet,
A home for God in my heart,
And to God, the Father of all, my entire being. Amen.
—Fursey of Yarmouth, 6th century Irish monk[/vc_column][/vc_row]
