To Love God with all our Compassion, Wonder, Curiosity, and Energy, and to Love People as ourselves. These are the greatest commandments of Jesus Christ and the first and primary mission of AJ First A/G.
We want love to be the defining characteristic of all our gatherings and outreaches. Romans 13:8 says, "Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellow man has fulfilled the law." To summarize this, we simply say: Love God & Love People. Loving God means loving people too. You cannot separate the two. So, if we claim to have a tender heart toward God, we must also have a compassionate heart toward people. Just as our soul is moved to worship God when looking upon the natural world, we must also appreciate and celebrate human diversity. As our curiosity increases for the wisdom of Christ, the knowledge we gain should be used to serve others. And even though we use our strength to work on earth, we must rely on God for that energy, and we must use it for His glory.
