Our Mission

Mission statements are inevitably broad, but they can have a clarifying force that summarizes well what a church is about. Our attempt at capturing our defining values is found in the following statement:

“We exist to glorify God through proclaiming the gospel to every person by the power of the Holy Spirit, making disciples, living out the gospel in our relationship with Jesus Christ and others in the context of the local church.”

Here is phrase-by-phrase breakdown of this statement…

“We exist…”

We exist because people took action and believed in the words recorded in Matthew 28:18-20.

“…to glorify God…”

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:31)

“…through proclaiming the gospel to every person…”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

“…by the power of the Holy Spirit”

“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 age.” (Acts 1:8)

“…making disciples…”

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:18a)

“…living out the gospel in our relationship with Jesus Christ…”

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ…” (Phil. 1:27a)

“…and others…”

“that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel…” (Phil. 1:27c)

“…in the context of the local church.”

“I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matt 16:18 “Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.” (Eph. 5:23b)
