Vision -- "Bring Christ to Our City."
Mission -- "Creating a Gospel Equipped Community"
While every church has the same goal of growing closer to God as we lead others to Him, we wanted to define our vision in a way that we can each evaluate how we are progressing on our walk with God.
Loving God: God’s overwhelming love and grace that He offers us should motivate a response to completely give Him our hearts. We can not truly love God without striving to serve Him.
Others: Our love for others should mirror
God’s for us. It must be given unconditionally with their best
interest in mind. We are to give of ourselves to others as
God has given to us.
Meaningful Worship: True worship occurs
when we open our hearts to celebrate what God has done in our life.
God deserves more than we can ever give. It is His desire that we
worship Him. Worship brings us into His presence.
Continual Prayer: Communication is
essential for developing our relationship with God. We
grow stronger in Him when we constantly praise who God is, confess
what we need
forgiven, and plead for God to work in our lives and the lives of
others. We must
take time to speak to God and spend time listening to His
Personal Relationships: Developing
authentic community within our church family is
essential to spiritual growth. Accountability, intercession, mutual
fostering a sense of belonging are best achieved through loving
relationships with each
with Excellence: Striving to serve God
with excellence brings honor to God and
inspires people to do the same. Working to benefit God’s kingdom
should be done
with a clear purpose and results in mind.
Integrity and Relevance: We believe that
God’s people should not have to sacrifice
Biblical integrity or cultural relevance in their pursuit to worship
God and reach
their community. Spiritual church growth requires dedication to
Truth: God is Truth and He has displayed it to the world
through His scripture,
through Jesus, and through His followers. Everything we do as a
church family and
as individuals must focus on living out the truth of God in our
our Faith: The life of Jesus Christ
demonstrated the importance for believers
to share the hope of salvation. Intentionally building
relationships with non-believers along with other methods of evangelism should be a
cornerstone of our daily
life. We have been sent to let others know of the hope only found through
faith in Jesus Christ.
