"The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith."
1 Timothy 1:5
Stepping into any new place for the first time can appear frightening. This is just as true of a church as in any other place. Therefore, we want to give you an idea of what to expect when you come to Church of The Woods.
What makes our church a great place is not just the service but the connections we build.
We often laugh, communicate, share experiences, and make mistakes. We value our relationships with one another. Our community is focusing on growing through relationships and growing closer to God.
We strive for the word of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We look to share grace with all of the lost and lonely and lead the hopeless to the hope of Jesus Christ.
"Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it."
People should experience the love of Jesus from an early stage in life. Church's presence is crucial in children's lives and their relationship with God. Church of the Woods gives importance to involving them in worshiping Him.
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
What's more powerful than God bringing you out of something is when God comes in and begins to change things. There is something comforting about being aware that we don't need to be able to handle these tough times on our own. When they come, we can have the motivation that we will be able to make it through because we don't need to walk alone by ourselves on this journey.
If you need some motivation during hard times, there is no better place to turn than the Bible. It is the word of God. Worshiping God in these times may look harder than it was in the old times.
In the past, many people referred to it as the "living word," almost as if the Bible was living and breathing. The Bible speaks to people today as much as it did to those who read it back then.
Church of the Woods welcomes you to join us in listening and speaking about the word of God.
"As Christian people, we are saddled with the responsibility of showing love, empathy, and care for human beings because it's through them that we can show the world the power of Christ."
