Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Sone and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
For us, scripture is very clear as to our mission. Jesus proclaimed that He has all authority, therefore, we must go... get out of our comfort zones... and make disciples.
Our vision is to love people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Matthew 22:37-40 (NLT)
37 Jesus replied, "You must love the Lord your God with all you heart, all your soul, and all your mind." 38 this is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."
