To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  That sounds like a mouth full, but it’s actually quite simple.

The last thing Jesus said before he left us was, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Did you catch that?  Make disciples.  

Disciples are people who follow Jesus.  Yes, believing in Jesus is good.  But following Jesus is better, and that’s what Jesus asked of everyone he met.  So, we don’t just talk about believing in God. We talk about learning what was important to Jesus so that we can make those things important to us.  

We believe everyone has been giving spiritual gifts from God.  And because that’s true, everyone is important to ministry.  There’s room for all kinds of ideas and efforts that help us fulfill our mission.

It’s sound crazy to think that we can transform the world.  To be sure, it’s only something that can be done with God’s help.  That’s why we focus on prayer and learning what God wants us to do.  We’re sure, though, that with God’s help, God’s power and God’s Spirit, we can bring truth, justice, mercy and transformation to the world.  Want to be a part of that?
