our mission

Our mission is to Love & Invest. We exist to lead people to Love God, Love People, and Invest In His Kingdom. 


CORE VALUES

Our mission is to lead people to Love God, Love People, and Invest In His Kingdom. Our values are what help push us to get to that place. They shape everything about us. We like to think of them as if we were a family at the dinner table in our Home. Four things make our time at the table beneficial.


WE’RE PRESENT

For the dinner table to be what it’s intended to be, we need to be present. Every weekend you will benefit from practical messages designed to help you grow in your spiritual journey no matter where you are on it.  It is during these times of corporate worship that together we give God the worship He is due, and we are inspired to make the changes God is leading us to make.  

The early church gathered together… “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,” 

Acts 2:42;46 (ESV)


not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:25 (ESV) 

WE SERVE

Dinner doesn’t happen without someone preparing the meal, setting the table, and cleaning up after the meal. God has given all of us unique gifts and talents. We use our gifts through the church so that we can fulfill God’s purpose for our lives. At Piedmont, we provide a variety of opportunities for using our gifts by volunteering and outreach. If God has called you to this church, He hasn’t called you to sit inactively, He’s called you to be an active part, so jump in!


And Christ gave gifts to people—he made some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to go and tell the Good News, and some to have the work of caring for and teaching God’s people. [12] Christ gave those gifts to prepare God’s holy people for the work of serving, to make the body of Christ stronger. Ephesians 4:11-12 (NCV)


The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. 

1 Corinthians 12:7 (CEV)


WE CONNECT

Ever been to an awkward dinner where no one spoke?... They're not good. God created us for relationships. Many people think becoming a follower of Christ is about getting religion. Nothing could be further from the truth. God desires that we have an authentic relationship with Him. He wants us to have genuine relationships with each other. We encourage you to get involved in a group, to meet others in the church gathering, to go beyond just showing up. Be intentional. Show up early and leave late on Sundays. Make this place more than a gathering, make it home. 


Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:[10] If one falls down, his friend can help him up.  But pity the man who falls and has no one to   help him up!  [11] Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.  But how can one keep warm alone?  [12] Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. 

Proverbs 27:17

WE GIVE

Gather friends and family, wash your hands, set the table, sit at the table, and notice that no one has provided food. When we give, through God’s blessing, we are supporting the church and ensuring that there is always food on the table. When it comes to giving to God through the church, we believe that our primary motivation for giving should be the vision. We should give because we have the same vision God has for the world. When we do give to our local church, we have the vision for seeing lives changed. This is what giving to Piedmont does. 


“A tithe of everything you produce belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.” 

Leviticus 26:30 (NIV)


The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (ESV)



what we believe

About the Scriptures

We believe the Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.


About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.


About Mankind

We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone.


About Salvation

We believe Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.


About the Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world.


About God’s Dependability

We believe God gives man and woman eternal life through Jesus Christ, and adopts them as His own, salvation is received and maintained by the grace and power of God—not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives believers the assurance of salvation. No power in the universe can separate God’s children from Him.


About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
