“What are the truly essential things on which your church should focus to make sure that your church’s core vision and mission continues into the next generation?”
We exist to worship by bringing praise to God with the fruit of our lips, and glory to God with the fruit of our lives. We exist to serve by bringing healing to the sinner through salvation, to the saint through edification, and to the world through regeneration, resulting in victorious living through an empowered church.
We exist to glorify God through a lifestyle of worship and servitude.
Restored people, restoring places.
Restoring people: to Jesus. (Discipleship, equipping, empowering and serving.)
Restoring places: the product of advancing/building God's Kingdom. (The overflow of a restored life flowing into all aspects of life, family, community, and ultimately the world.)
