Our Purpose

At The Sanctuary, we believe our purpose is "to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by loving God, loving self, and loving others."

More practically,

Loving God...through personal DEVOTION.

Loving Self...through personal DEVELOPMENT.

Loving Others...through personal CONNECTION.


This is what we strive for.  Every idea, program, and expenditure is filtered through our purpose statement.


This purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus:

Matt 28:19-20
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Matt 22:37-40
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
