Faith without serving is dead. Jesus’ brother said that. (He had unique first-hand experience, wouldn't you say?) Our faith is lived out by serving others: the lost, hurting, suffering, lonely or those in need. 

We believe God sent His Son, Jesus, to reclaim a broken world for good. God sent His Spirit to ignite His compassion in each of us. And now God sends each of us in His church to love and humbly serve others. To fully participate in His example, and grow in relationship with Him, we go out to show the same radical love.
