MISSION IS CENTRAL

Our Mission Statement describes what we exist to do every day.

MAKING DISCIPLES

Gospel Proclamation. Ever since Jesus commissioned His church before His ascension, it has been her duty to proclaim the good news that He is King, and with His blood He paid for our sins and purchased our reconciliation to God (Matt 28:18-20). The central role and the first priority of the church is to call people to put their faith in Jesus and begin following Him as disciples. Disciples do not exist only for the sake of their own discipleship, but they are always making more disciples who will in turn make disciples.

PUSHING BACK DARKNESS

Gospel Demonstration. It was Jesus’ intent that His church be a city set on a hill, penetrating the darkness with His light (Matt 5:14-16). When Jesus Christ becomes our King, all of our life comes under his Lordship, and it transforms how we live in such a way that it confronts the darkness around us. The way our faith integrates with our work, the way we care for the poor and marginalized, and the way we love one another in a reconciled community of faith all expose the darkness around us as we walk as children of light (Eph 5:8-11). The way the church lives and loves gives the world a preview of the kingdom of God.

ALL FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL

Gospel Motivation. We do not make disciples to have a large following. We do not care for the poor so that people will look up to us or be indebted to us. We do everything so that the Gospel of Jesus will advance (1 Cor 9:23). We go on mission for the Gospel because we have been saved through the Gospel. We do not strive on mission in order to earn the favor of God. All we are, we are because of Jesus. Now, all we do, we do because of Jesus.
