Our mission is to reflect God to people and direct people to God.
Our Mission Statement is a condensed summary of our Vision Statement. If you “boiled down” all of who we are and what we do, it would come back to these two phrases.
These two statements summarize and re-state Jesus’ vision for His Church, Paul’s vision for the Church, and our vision for our Church. “That you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world”. Philippians 2:15 NKJV
Reflecting God to people summarizes how we are to live our lives. When people look at us, they should see God in us. As someone once said, “If God is your Father; there should be a family resemblance.”
Directing people to God summarizes why we are to live our lives. There are only two things we can do on earth that we cannot do in Heaven: sin and witness. Which do you think God left us here to do? Directing people to God is why we are here and the only thing we can’t do better in Heaven.
