Our Mission & Vision

 



Mission (What is the church's assignment)

"To empower people by ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ (Rom 1:16; Matt 25:35-36) to the whole man (spirit, soul, and body) (1 Thessalonians 5:23) in the spirit of excellence (Daniel 6:3)."

 

Vision (What we will become)

"We will be a Holy Spirit-filled, Bible-teaching church where every member is empowered to be spiritually, soulfully, physically, provisionally, relationally, financially, and socially healthy."

 

2 Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the VISION and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. 3For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

Habakkuk 2:2-3

 

"Where there's no VISION, the people get out of control,
    but whoever obeys instruction is happy."

Proverbs 29:18 (Common English Bible- CEB)
