Being and making disciples who know God and make God known through worship, community, and mission.
Romans 8:28–39 (ESV)

[28] And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. [29] For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. [30] And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

[31] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? [32] He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? [33] Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. [34] Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. [35] Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? [36] As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

[37] No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. [38] For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, [39] nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

HAIL THE KING

Verse 1
We have been justified
By faith through Jesus Christ
It's only by His grace we stand
Once bound by sin and shame
Now slave to righteousness
Our faith perfected by His love

Chorus 1
Praise the Savior He has won
Our sin defeated through His blood
Now exalted Jesus reigns
Hail the King praise His name

Verse 2
While we were weak He died
Making us reconciled
To God for all eternal days
And even in our fading flesh
Our only hope and rest
Is found in faith that Jesus saves

Chorus 2
We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God
We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God
We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God
We rejoice in the glory of God

Bridge
Our hope of glory is
Found in the one who gives
Great joy to sing about
The love that He poured out
Forever lifted High
Is our Savior Jesus Christ
The gift of God gifted in love

PSALM 18

Verse 1
Burdened by death
Desperate for life
You found me in darkness
And put me in Your light
You gave me a song
And I'll shout it with joy
'Cause the curse has been lifted
And You've won the war
Alleluia

Chorus
Mighty God You are my rock and shield
A fortress that fights off fear
Saved from the enemy salvation bringing victory
Perfect in all Your ways
Worthy of unending praise
Alleluia

Verse 2
Why did I doubt
Your power to save
And rescue me from
The shadow of shame
No end to the drum
No rest for my mouth
The battle that's waging
Cannot silence the shout
Alleluia
Alleluia

Bridge
All my strength comes from what You provide
Without it I can't survive
In trials if I face
Fear I will not forget You're near
In every step I take Your promises stay the same

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

Verse 1
When peace like a river
Attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot
Thou hast taught me to say
It is well
It is well with my soul

Chorus
It is well with my soul
It is well
It is well with my soul

Verse 2
My sin O the bliss
Of this glorious tho't
My sin not in part but the whole
Is nailed to the cross
And I bear it no more
Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord O my soul

Verse 3
And Lord haste the day
When the faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
The trump shall resound
And the Lord shall descend
Even so it is well
With my soul

HE WILL HOLD ME FAST

Verse 1
When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold
Through life's fearful path
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast

Chorus
He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Verse 2
Those He saves are His delight
Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight
He will hold me fast
He'll not let my soul be lost
His Promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost
He will hold me fast

Verse 3
For my life He bled and died
Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied
He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life
He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last
