Vision: Leading people to become everyday disciple makers of Jesus
Everyday Disciple Makers
Abide Daily – Love Jesus and Others – Share the Good News – Give Selflessly – Serve Others
Extravagant daily time with Jesus—this is the center of abiding. Not legalism, not dry discipline, not manufactured spirituality, but joyous soaking in the presence of Jesus. Spending lavish time with Him who is most precious, the One from whom all life flows. Abiding is patient waiting in the presence of Jesus. Abiding is extravagant (concentrated) daily times with Jesus and all-day awareness. Abiding is constant communion in the midst of a crowded world and busy life and unique times of sweet, exclusive fellowship. In abiding, discipline leads to desire, which matures into delight.
Love Jesus and Others (Mark 12:30-31)
To love Jesus and others is to live an empowered life (Acts 1:8) fulfilling the “Great’s,” the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). Empowerment is sought through Holy Spirit baptism (Acts 2:4). Loving God is expressed by spending time with Him through abiding, the first core value and by obeying the commands of Jesus (John 14:15). The great commission is fulfilled by sharing the Good News of Jesus, the third core value. Loving Jesus is expressed by loving neighbors and living in right relationship with everyone because you cannot be right with God, if you are not right with others (Matthew 5:24).
Give Selflessly (2 Corinthians 8:3)
Serve Others (Luke 9:24)
