Our Vision

The Big Picture

TO PREACH the Gospel of Jesus Christ, leading sinners to repentance, baptizing them for the forgiveness of sins, and teaching them to be eager to do good works in gratitude for God’s unmerited and undeserved grace.

TO RESTORE the early church found in the book of Acts by meeting both the spiritual and material needs of our city and our world.

TO TRUST God to keep his word as we believe in all of His promises including His promise to heal the sick by the power of the Holy Spirit through the laying on of hands.

TO EQUIP believers with the faith, hope, and love necessary to fulfill their purpose as Christians.

TO BUILD Heaven upon Earth by planting new churches who will share in our efforts to relieve the suffering of our neighbors and bring equality to all.

TO WELCOME believers, skeptics, city officials, government bodies, charities, and churches into unity as we do justice together in our community.

TO REMAIN in the vine, not growing weary of obediently doing good but continuing with endurance as we fulfill God’s will until our death or Christ’s return.

 

“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay.
“Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith.”
Habakkuk 2:2-4
