DEAR CHURCH FAMILY,
For the past months the elders, ministers, and deacons have been prayerfully considering and developing a mission and forward vision for our church. The mission of the church has not changed from the ultimate mission that Jesus gave . . . to go into all the world to make disciples.
We believe our mission to spread the hope and peace of Christ stands on 3 biblical tenets:
- Loving God and loving one another (John 13:34-35)
- Service to one another and our community (1 Peter 4:10)
- Sharing the story of Jesus as it continues to create transformed lives in our community (Matthew 28:19)
We are sensitive to the reality that ALL people (Christian and otherwise) experience the same life challenges and struggles. Therefore wherever possible, our ministries and intiatives will be designed to both engage and benefit nonbelievers as well as believers. Everything we do will be with an intentional outward focus and will be tested against our unchanging mission and its effectiveness toward realizing our vision.
Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will boldly pursue this mission and vision with an intense focus on serving families in ways that challenge, inspire, and equip them to experience the transformative power of Christ's gospel.
We look forward to what God will do through all of us on this journey.
We Who Serve
