Mission: Why we exist?
We exist to LOVE GOD, and SERVE OTHERS, by MAKING DISCIPLES of ALL NATIONS.
Love GOD - We model our church after the pattern that God has shown us in His Word and by living for Him with a lifestyle of holiness and love. We exist not for our name's sake, but for God's glory. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment." Matthew 22:37,38
Serve Others - We exist to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community. To be a church that loves unconditionally, shows compassion, and freely forgives. We exist for glorifying God through serving others. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew 22:37-39
- Make Disciples- To make followers who are passionately seeking after God through daily prayer and scripture reading. To use small groups to grow deeper in knowledge of whom Christ is, and to better understand how to have a closer walk with God. Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me." Matthew 16:24
- All Nations- We exist for the purpose of attracting the world to the cross through active participation in local and overseas missions. As a church we will intentionally take the gospel out to South Tampa and beyond. We will teach disciples to:
o Share the WORD
o Show the WORD
o Teach the WORD
o Serve the WORLD
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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 everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
