Christian Life’s vision is simply a restating of Jesus’ Great Commission in Matthew 28. It is a statement that defines what we do – our work as a staff and church – and expresses what drives and guides every ministry of our church.
Our values, in turn, are the specific, timeless principles that we as a church are predisposed to live by. These values guide our behaviors and decisions as a church. Since we are committed to living these out, each value has a brief explanation and application question for us to ask of ourselves. These aren’t meant to be just the values of our church corporately but of every member of it individually.
Inspired by the Great Commission our goal simply put is to “go to heaven and take with us as many as we can.”
The way we plan to do it is by developing the passion to live the Christian Life!
Passion is the thrust behind making things happen! As we develop passionately devoted followers of Jesus, we will become like Him and we pray that many will be drawn to God.
God has spoken and continues to speak to us through His living word and we acknowledge it as the final authority for our everyday lives.
