Who We Are
The Church at Perry Creek is a multi-ethnic, inter-generational family of believers, serving in Northeast Raleigh. Our mission is to
DRINK DEEPLY of Christ, to GROW RICHLY as disciples, and to SHARE FREELY of the gospel, together in community.
“Blessed is the man who delights in the Law of the Lord…he will be like a tree planted by rivers of water…he bears fruit in his season, and his leaf doesn’t wither.” – Psalm 1
As disciples, we want to grow like a tree, planted by rivers of water. And as a church we want our values to saturate our lives and overflow to our community.
We want to do three things, just like a tree:
1) DRINK DEEPLY “He’s planted by rivers of water,” A tree drinks deeply of the moisture and nutrients in the soil. We want to drink deeply of Christ in:
Bible: We believe scripture is alive and speaks to every area of our lives. Therefore, every encounter with the bible should change us. (Heb. 4:12) We need the daily nourishment that comes from God’s word.
Prayer: We take time for meaningful prayer during each worship service and we gather for corporate prayer on a regular basis. Drinking deeply of prayer aligns us with God’s will (Matt. 6:10) and empowers us for His work (Eph. 6:19).
2) GROW RICHLY “His leaf does not wither.” As we are built up through the bible and prayer we develop strength. And we want to grow richly through:
Family: We strive for true inter-generational ministry where the church is a family of families. Growing richly as a family means helping each marriage and family become all that God made them to be (Eph. 5:21-6:4).
Community: We long to be a church that reflects the face of our community and to be known for our care and compassionate help. So no matter who you are or where you have come from, you are welcome here (Rev. 22:2)!
3) SHARE FREELY “He bears fruit in his season.” As God’s word grows us, what we are learning inevitably spills over into action. We want to take the love and resources we have received from God and share freely through community and mission.
Missions: As believers in Jesus we are called to share our faith and participate in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). We want to share freely by using the resources we have to make disciples around the triangle and around the world.
Community: As part of the “Body of Christ,” we are called to live in community with each other and our neighbors. We want to share freely by loving and serving with Gospel generosity (Acts. 2:44-46).
