MISSION & VALUES

OUR MISSION

 

CALLED to KNOW

EQUIPPED to GO

 

CALLED TO KNOW:
God calls us to a relationship with Jesus as Lord,
growing in maturity and responsibility within the family of God.

 1 Corinthians 1:9 (ESV)
God is faithful, by whom you were called into
the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

EQUIPPED TO GO:
As we are equipped as Jesus’ followers, we are sent into all the world
making disciples at home and abroad

Matthew 28:19-20 (ESV)
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

 

WE VALUE:

 

KNOWING

KNOW Jesus as Lord of your life, expressed through baptism

Living in complete surrender to the life and mission of Jesus

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

 

WORD & PRAYER

KNOW the Word and power of prayer:

IDENTITY

KNOW your identity in Christ

GO with the leading and power of the Holy Spirit

We can do nothing spiritually significant in our own wisdom and strength

GO intentionally and strategically making disciples

Every mission needs a plan

God will give us everything we need to accomplish his purposes

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

 

HOME & ABROAD

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
