Our Mission and How We Fulfill it

What defines us as a Church? 

Mission Statement-This is why we exist as a church.  Ultimately we exist to bring glory to God.  Jesus expressed this truth and pointed out that we bring glory to God by obeying Him (John 17:4).  Jesus had a different job than us as He came as a sacrifice for sin.  We extend His mission by fulfilling the Commission He gave us (Matthew 28:18-20).  Thus,:

  • We exist to Glorify God by growing disciples of Jesus Christ.

The picture below illustrates how we effectively grow disciples.  Our first priority is sowing seed.  As a seed takes root and becomes a new believer, we nurture growth to produce a growing disciple of Jesus Christ. 

Core Values-These statements describe the effective environment that our church must be to effectively complete our mission of growing disciples.

  • Empowered: We desire to be empowered by the Holy Spirit through Prayer. (Acts 1:8; 2:1-4)
  • Equipping: We desire to equip others through obedience to the Bible.  (2 Timothy 3:16, 17)
  • Exalting: We desire to worship God in a way that displays His presence to others.  (Psalm 27:4; 42:1-2; 73:25)
  • Encouraging: We desire to live as a Christian family where all needs are met.  (Acts 4:32-35)
  • Engaging: We desire to reach out to others through relationships and service.  (Luke 10:25-37)


Vision Statement-This statement describes our ideal end.  What will it look like when we are fulfilling our mission?

  • To be a body of believers actively supporting life-changing relationships with Jesus Christ for all people within the church family, our community, and in all the world.
