Purpose – Mission
In the fulfillment of this mission or purpose, our basic aims will be:
AN UPWARD LOOK (worship), in which we fix our attention upon our God with all of His marvelous attributes and benevolent deeds. Our upward look involves the giving of praise and thanks to Him, the strengthening of our commitment to Him, the stimulation of further trust in Him and the spiritual enjoyment of Him.
AN INWARD LOOK (fellowship), in which we fix our attention upon each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. Our inward look involves loving concern and care for one another, the cultivation of spiritual friendships, mutual prayer support, edification, exhortation and discipline, equipping each other for service, and participation in ministry.
AN OUTWARD LOOK (evangelistic discipleship), in which we fix our attention upon those who are not yet disciples of Jesus Christ. Our outward look involves the establishment of rapport with our community and the world, the development and use of effective evangelism strategies, the training of our own to carry out those strategies, and the activation of our church to maintain a consistent evangelistic thrust individually and corporately in this community and throughout the world by means of our mission and church planting ministries.
Accordingly, our basic purpose in appointing staff members, electing officers and selecting committees for our local church is to accommodate and complement the above Mission and Objective.
