“It’s all about love!!”
Our vision, the culture we seek to create, and the reason we exist as a church is simple -- to obey Jesus by loving God and loving people.
Radiant is a contemporary Spirit empowered church that seeks to love God and love people thereby training and equipping the saints to love the lost to Jesus. At Radiant we understand that we are all broken people whom God is putting back together again. Because we understand our fallen condition, we seek to be a safe place where everyone is welcome to “come as you are” and experience the love and acceptance of Jesus as well as to find friendship and encouragement in order to walk this amazing Christian journey together.
Jesus was once asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus responded saying, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it; love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.” (Mark 12:29-31)
After the resurrection and before Jesus ascended back to heaven, Jesus commissioned his disciples to continue His ministry. Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:18-20) This is known as the Great Commission. Jesus’ mission is still our commission today and is one of the core emphasis at Radiant Church.
The people who call Radiant home seek to exalt Jesus Christ as the King and trust him to empower and enable us to do the work of the Kingdom for His glory. We seek to “be imitators of God . . .
and live a life of love just as Christ loved us.” (Ephesians 5:1) Because it really is “all about love!!”
