We exist to glorify God by enjoying Him, as we grow in maturity in Jesus Christ and go in the power of the Holy Spirit with the message of the Gospel to all peoples.
We exist to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. We long to worship and walk day by day so that our enjoyment in Jesus Christ will grow greater and deeper and more consuming. As a result we believe that God will be glorified in our lives, in our relationships and in our ministry. Worship happens in private as we commune with God alone; it happens in homes as we worship God as families; it happens corporately as we gather as a local church to worship God, and it happens spontaneously as we corporately work together for the good of the community and witness God at work changing lives and structures.
The Great Commission is a call to evangelism and discipleship. The New Testament church was a community built by evangelism and living out discipleship. Paul said, “I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!” He also said, “what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
We are to so teach, so disciple and so encourage others that they might grow into maturity in Christ to the end that they might entrust this same Gospel reality to others.
We also see a call in Scripture to go outside of comfort, outside of culture, outside of ease, and outside the camp. It is a call to go in sharing our faith, to go with acts of mercy, to go in planting churches and to go to all nations with the good news of the Gospel.
