We Exist for the Glory of God
Have you ever pondered why humans exist? Scripture provides the answer to this question. God’s word shows us the purpose of mankind is to glorify Him and enjoy Him forever. We are created in His image (Gen. 1:27). We are called to do everything for His glory (1 Cor. 10:31) and to live in such a manner that others see His work in our lives and give glory to Him (Mat. 5:14-16). We fall short of perfectly displaying the glory in which we were made because of sin (Romans 3:23), and are in need of a solution.
Jesus Christ is the radiance of the glory of God (Heb 1:3), and it is only because of His work on the cross that we are able to show forth the good work of our Creator as sinful creatures. He is the solution, and we rest fully upon His finished work. Christ died to take our punishment and lived a perfect life on our behalf, and because of Him we are now able to live for Him now as we await His return.
Christ Community Church (P.C.A.) Springville exists as a fellowship of broken sinners aimed at honoring our heavenly Father. We seek to do this by proclaiming truth and by loving each other and our community. It is our hope that we will be considered a priceless part of the community of Springville. We wholeheartedly believe everyone in Springville benefits from the presence of the Gospel (even if they do not embrace and believe its message of hope) and we hope to be a positive aspect of the community as the Holy Spirit works through us to make known the Son of God to His people.
So, to say we exist for His glory is to sum up the purpose of our existence.
