As you have probably seen somewhere by now (if our graphics guy did his job ;), the VISION that that put a fire in our belly is….

Be Disciples. Make Disciples.

Deeply connected to that vision is our MISSION:

We are learning (that’s the key word) to build a family of followers of Jesus, empowered by the Spirit, joining in God’s mission to see the Kingdom of Heaven transform earth.

The vision is simple, but not easy. So we want to be intentional about the way we invest our time, energy and resources, flowing out of these PASSIONS:

Keep Discovering

Whether you have been walking with Jesus 5 minutes or 50 years, there is always more of God!  If you’ve stopped learning, you’ve stopped growing and you’ve put God in a box. But if we keep a childlike, humble, hunger for more of God, then we can rest in His promise to continue to transform us “from one degree of glory to another” to be and do like Jesus.

Reproduce Disciples

As life-changing and awesome as it is to learn from Jesus and be in relationship with him, his vision for you isn’t complete if it stops with you. Jesus wants to grow every follower to the coming-of-age-moment where he can say to you “Go now and make more disciples, teaching them everything like I have taught you.” (Matthew 28:19-20 paraphrase)

Everyone is a Minister

There are no superstars in God’s church, except God! God has this radical idea that every one of His beloved kids is called to what the bible calls “ministry.” So, along the road of following Him, He wants each of us to discover and develop our gifts and passions, along with how to walk in the power of the Spirit, so that we can each be empowered to truly reflect and represent Jesus in our homes, church, community and the world and see His Kingdom advanced!

Hang Out!

We believe there is incredible importance to investing in relationship with one another. Following Jesus is not meant to be a solo mission and we all know deep down we are made for relationship with God and some good friends. But deep relationships stem from first simply being intentional to hang out together. As we hang out and do life together we slowly grow in depth, connection and trust, which God uses to make us powerful tools to help one another be inspired, challenged, accepted, empowered and all sorts of other good things that make us abundantly alive, from high purpose to high play.

Be There

Church is not something we attend, its not a building we go to, its not the location that you park your keister for an hour on Sundays. You are, we are the church. So if you are not there (wherever “there” is), then the church isn’t as powerful, cuz God didn’t have the chance to use you in the way He could have and probably wanted to (maybe through simply a warm smile, an encouraging conversation or a Spirit-filled prayer with someone who needed it). So be there, wherever there is.
