At Ransom City we believe that the whole Bible is about Jesus (Luke 24:27,45) . We seek to make all that we do about Jesus as well. We find our Core Values as a church centered around who Jesus is and what he taught.
The story of the Bible is the story of God and His passionate desire to receive worship from the people that he creates, loves, and rescues from sin. Jesus even taught that God is seeking out worshipers (John 4:23). The primary reason for our existence as people and as a church is to worship God as He is revealed in the Bible.
Jesus was once asked if there was one commandment from the Old Testament Law that was greater than any other (Matt 22:36) . Jesus responded that the greatest command that God gave His people was to love. Jesus taught that we are first to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). This was an all encompassing command to love God with every part of yourself. Then Jesus added on that we are to love our neighbor the way we love ourselves and that all of the laws and rules of the Bible are summed up in these two commands. Ransom City Church lives to love God, our church family, and our city with the love that Jesus commanded.
After Jesus died and rose again he gathered his followers to give them one mission: make disciples
(Matthew 28:16-20). The purpose of every Christian's life is then not only to worship God and love people, but to create other followers of Jesus as well. We do this at our church two ways. First we immerse people into a new life with God by sharing the gospel with them and then second we spend a lifetime learning to obey all that Jesus taught and commanded.
