Our Purpose: Why do we exist?
“We exist to make Disciples of Jesus Christ”
This purpose statement flows out of our Lord’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). “to Make Christ Known” means living out the Great Commission. This difference is the heartbeat of our church. The outworking of the Great Commission can be broken down into three applications: Connecting, Nurturing, and Mobilizing.
- Connecting people to God through Jesus Christ involves building trusting, redemptive relationships with those who have not recognized Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.
- Nurturing people in their faith is the process of growing and building up believers in Christ.
- Mobilizing people to serve Christ through ministering to others involves equipping and training. This person is developed to be an active participant in ministry.
Our Ministry Goals: What do we live by?
We will engage our community and beyond for God by:
- Exalting the Savior through worship.
- Explaining the Scriptures through preaching.
- Encouraging the saints through fellowship.
- Equipping the servants through discipleship.
- Enlisting new souls through evangelism.
- Empowered by the Spirit through prayer.
