Local Mission

The central mission of the Church is to glorify God by making disciples. As a church family, we want to advance the gospel by making disciples in our local community. We want every man, woman, and child in our area to have repeated opportunities to hear, understand, and respond to the gospel without having to come or go anywhere. We have two aspects to our local outreach: gospel presence and gospel proclamation.

Our church engages in intentional, loving acts of service for our community that provide a gospel presence in our local area. However, this gospel presence is not enough by itself. We also need to have gospel proclamation. One of the main ways we believe this happens is through individual relationships. We want you to be living in intentional relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, sharing the gospel as the Spirit leads. This is a primary way in which each disciple of Christ can live on mission with God in their daily lives. For more information on what this looks like, please check out our Casting the Net video series.
