Our mission is to reach those who are broken and far from God and help them become fully devoted followers of Christ.
Jesus cared about those who were broken: the poor, the crippled, the blind. In His day, they represented the marginalized of society that the religious community neglected. But Jesus cared about them. As a church, we want to follow His example of loving and reaching out to all those who are experiencing brokenness. Physical and spiritual.
Jesus reached out to those who were far from God. In one sense, we are all galaxies away from God. Each of us is the prodigal son, the lost coin, the sheep that left the fold and wandered off. Jesus used these parables and others to illustrate our need for salvation and His love for us.
Those whom Jesus saved, He also shaped into fully devoted followers. As a church, we want to see people become fully devoted followers of Christ. Another way to say this is that we want to see Christians grow to maturity. Christian maturity isn't about how many years you've been a believer or what position you hold in the church. Christian maturity happens when you are walking (day to day, moment by moment) closely with Jesus and becoming more and more like Him.
All this points to our vision: to live as disciples making disciples.
In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gives His disciples the Great Commission: "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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." As we're growing in Christ, we want to pour into others and help them grow in their walk with the Lord as well. We want to make disciples as we ourselves are being discipled.
