When we look to Christ we see in the gospel that He has made - and is making - us to be people who the Bible says that we really are.
A chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of God's own possession so that we would declare His excellencies. In the concluding chapter of I Corinthians there are found 7 characteristics of this kind of people - this kind of church. The aim of The Church in DeKalb is to be that church.
A church that gives generously and supports mission and ministry.
A church that plants healthy churches.
A church that is full of people converted to service.
A church that is bigger than ourselves.
A church that united by holy kisses.
A church that sticks out the hard parts together.
A church that loves.
