Who we are


SCROLL DOWN

Who we are


purpose

Our purpose is simple: JaxNaz Church exists to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ because we believe everyone ought to know Jesus and those who know him ought to know him better. 


strategy

Our strategy comes directly from the way Jesus makes more and better disciples. He intentionally invites people to come and follow him. Those followers grow together in groups and proceed to serve the world. Then they go and invite others do the same.  

Jesus’ strategy is the JaxNaz Church strategy:

COMEcome and see. | John 1:39-41 | Every worship gathering at JaxNaz Church is
designed to point people toward Jesus; come and see what God is doing!

GROWgrow together. | Philippians 1:9-11 | Once you have been attending for a while, you will find yourself wanting more. Start reading your Bible and praying on your own, but also seek growth in community through classes, groups, and retreats.

SERVEserve Jesus. | 1 Peter 4:10 | As you continue growing, your faith will become less about you and more about others. Reading your Bible and praying frequently will spur you on to a deeper love of God, which is shown through serving others through and beyond JaxNaz.

GOgo and tell. | Matthew 28:19-20 | Finally, your commitment to the community will blossom into leadership as you invite others to come, help them grow, and serve alongside them. People become leaders because they are great followers.

Why Jesus?


Why Jesus?


jesus
changes everything

The world in which we live is in desperate need of hope. People everywhere struggle, fighting battles against each other and within themselves. These battles stem from our wounded, fallen nature as we rage against what we know is right. Culturally, we have labeled the voice that tells us what is right or wrong our conscience. In fact, it is God's Spirit drawing us toward Himself.

God sent Jesus, His son, from heaven to us. Jesus was born as a vulnerable baby, grew into a man, and showed us how to live the life God intended from the beginning. Then, knowing there was nothing we could do to end the battle between sin and righteousness, Jesus BECAME sin for us even though he was without sin himself. He went to the cross as sin and died.

Through Jesus, sin died. 

Then, Jesus came back to life!

JESUS came back to life.

Sin did not.  

We are still a broken people, but there is hope! During his earthly ministry, Jesus taught us that when we accept him as Christ, Messiah, Savior, he will send the Advocate, the Helper, the Holy Spirit, to live powerfully in us so that sin is no longer our master. Laying our lives down for Jesus sets us free.

JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING.
