Mission, Vision & Values
Our vision is to awaken, equip and release people to walk like Christ on the earth (1 John 2:6) and do His works (John 14:12) in the power of the Holy Spirit! We serve to empower and release many leaders to plant churches and disciple nations. We will intentionally send out teams domestically and internationally through an strategic process of leadership training and mentoring.
We bring a commitment to and a conviction for authentic Christian community where lives are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit resulting in the multiplication of disciples, leaders, churches and ministries.
We will make more and better disciples of Jesus by graciously influencing non-Christians to yield their lives to Jesus Christ and connect with and become an integral part of the life of the local church family (Evangelism); by developing believers into obedient disciples that continually grow in grace and knowledge becoming more like Jesus Christ (Edification); by equipping disciples to serve the world according to their spiritual gifts and life mission (Equipping); by raising up and sending out Kingdom – leaders to make disciples in the marketplace and in the cities, reaching others with the Gospel and establishing and extending the Kingdom of God in cities and nations (Extending).
Jesus commanded us to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). This is the mission of the Church. We value a holistic discipleship process that results in followers of Jesus become Christ-like in their behavior – walking like Jesus (1 John 2:6) and doing the greater works Christ promised we would do (John 14:12).
Worship is the purpose of creation and salvation. We are to give God pleasure by our lifestyle of worship (Revelation 4:11 AV). True worship is glorifying God in all we say, think and do. Worship is one’s response, both personal and corporate, to God – for who He is and what He has done. When we worship the Lord in spirit and truth, we encounter His glory and are changed!
We value the presence of the Holy Spirit. We desire that our gatherings be flexible enough in format to permit the Living God to interact with His people through the New Testament Gifts of the Spirit: healing, miracles, prophecy, etc. The Holy Spirit not only brings us the words of Jesus, but also continues to do the works of Jesus in our midst resulting in healing, deliverance, and life transformation.
We value a standard of excellence in all that we say and do. The Bible instructs us, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” (Col.3:17). Mediocrity and half-hearted effort is not worthy of our high calling as Ambassadors of the Kingdom.
We value doing ministry as a “team.” We believe that teamwork and ministry teams are the right approach to ministry. We are committed to the success of one another and place a higher value on team accomplishments than on individual accomplishments. “Two are better off than one because together they can work more effectively.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9 GNB)
Equipping for Ministry
We value the ministry of all believers and understand from Scripture that it is the role of Five-Fold ministers is to equip the set-apart people of God for ministry. We align ourselves with the heart of the Father to reach all ethnic groups with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will intentionally release teams to help start new churches to evangelize other cultures both at home and abroad.
