One of the strengths of the early church as seen in the book of Acts was their absolute devotion to the faith. In Acts 2:42 we learn that, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” These 4 specific practices of the early church, teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, and prayer are all things that we do to this very day. Through this 4-week series we will look at these 4 practices and how they continue to impact and inspire Compass Church to be the beautiful feet of those the bring the Good News .

We look to God and His word for direction in our life. That's our Compass. It's a simple and singular focus that joins our hearts and minds together. We don't follow cultural norms, church trends, denominational rules or media pressures. We just open up the Bible, some for the 10,000th time (it never gets old), many for the first time (which is exciting), and we see a message of love and forgiveness that is personified in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Join us! The view is spectacular!
It's amazing how the truth of God's word penetrates every area of your life, regardless of your age. So, we listen. We listen to how God created and designed this world to function. We listen to God's perfect plan for relationships. We listen to how God cares about your future, not your past. And what we hear is life-changing.
We know that our faith isn't about how much we know, but how well we love... and we LOVE to serve others! Whether it's locally, serving families in our church or organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, Shepherd's House or the Pregnancy Resource Center; or globally serving families and kids in Mexico, India, Africa, Honduras and Hungary, we strive to be "beautiful feet" (Isaiah 52:7) to those around us.
We take God very seriously, but don't take ourselves or our opinions too seriously. The Bible tells us that "joy is our strength" and we want to be strong. If you feel beat down by life, maybe a little weary, we understand that crying is sometimes a good place to start, but it's not where God wants you to end. You won't find a bunch of frowns or wagging-fingers at Compass, just people who are thrilled to welcome you and put a smile on your face.
We don't just meet for Sunday services, we do life together. We know that everybody needs a place to belong, a place to feel loved and valued, a place to build lasting friendships. We're thankful that Compass has become that place for so many.
