Mission for Ministry

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.  Romans 5:6

Our Vision

   
 
The phrase that sums up what we are all about is "God's Word lived out in relationships". This was adopted by the board as our official vision statement.
 
First and foremost, we ground everything in prayer.  The church was born out of the prayers of the brothers and sisters in Acts 1:14.  They prayed, and there is no record of what they prayed, they just prayed for God to act, and He did.  Like the priorities the first church had in Acts 2:42, our four main priorities are building up the body of Christ through Bible teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer.
 
We want to equip the believers to take the Gospel outside our doors, and our hope is, like the first church, "the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved" (Acts 2:47). 
 
In addition, we would like to become a church home for those who don't have one. As the first church met from "house to house", in addition to our worship together, we emphasize intimate, small groups in homes. As the Lord is the author of the family, we seek to meet the needs of families and especially children. As the Lord prospers us and we grow, we would dream of starting other churches that have the same hope we do.

Our Values

  
 

To preach and teach the word of God - that each of our church family may have a clear understanding of God’s word, and the tools to put it into practice.

To ground our vision and ministry in prayer - to emphasize prayer in every area! The army that wins advances on its knees!

To promote effective and enthusiastic worship - we will seek to provide worship times that lift our spirits, minds and emotions toward God.

To equip God’s people for the work of the ministry - it is our desire to provide ministry training in the areas of leadership, evangelism, people-helping, marriage and parenting.

To foster open communication among us as a body - we will seek to follow the teaching of scripture to “speak the truth in love”. If something cannot be said in love, it shouldn’t be said.

To build nurturing relationships in the body - we will pursue development in the area of small group ministry across the spectrum of age-group, interest & needs.

To seek creative ways to reach the lost - we will provide training in the area of personal evangelism, and seek to put on or take part in evangelistic efforts.

To promote a global focus in ministry - as with our long tradition, we will continue to give missions our wholehearted support.

To continually seek ways to pursue the ministry of benevolence - We desire to be alert to ways we can help those among us who are in need.

To keep looking for ways to have an atmosphere that says “welcome” - we will seek to maintain an alertness to new people and making them feel welcome with us.

To provide a facility adequate to do excellent ministry - We will seek to set forth a long range plan to provide an excellent facility, with creative thought, broad-based involvement and responsible stewardship.
