Our mission as a church is
Helping more people, more often, say ‘Yes’ to God!
We like it because it emphasizes the positive approach to our faith. We’ve grown too accustomed to thinking that to have a relationship with God means you constantly have to say ‘No’ to just about everything in life — not just the bad habits that most would agree need to go — but the interesting and fun things, too. Our mission is based on this key Scripture: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Our mission reminds us of several key principles:
It’s about helping people. The church isn’t about buildings and programs; it’s about reaching and touching people with the love and truth of Christ.
It’s about helping more people. We think numbers are important because each one represents a valued life. We are never content to say we’ve finished our task. We are driven by the passion to reach “just one more.”
It’s about helping more people more often say ‘Yes’ to God. God is speaking to us all the time, whispering and coaxing us to follow His lead and trust Him more. Living as a believer is learning to discern the voice of the Lord and being obedient to whatever He says. Some people hear that voice urging them to give God a try. Then they sense the call to give their lives to Christ. That voice continues to speak with greater regularity and boldness as Jesus leads us into the life He designed for us. As He once said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27)
