Mission statement tag line: Touching hearts and changing lives.
Vision statement: By the power of the Holy Spirit to prepare a church of disciples filled

Value statement: Our shared sense of mission will drive implementation of our goals. Making disciples calls for ministry beyond boundaries, touching hearts and changing lives through three spiritual imperatives.
OUR THREE IMPERATIVES ARE:
- Growing in Leadership: Jesus is our model. He did not come to be served but to serve (Mark 10:45). We want to be like Him and reproduce ourselves as servant leaders as He did. We feel the urgency to empower this and the next generation to Godly living and faithful service. Paul said to Timothy, “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2). We must invest in others. We ought to make leaders!
- Growing in Mission: We are committed to making disciples. “Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt 28:19). We recognize that greater efforts must be exerted to reach our families, students, communities, immigrants, and our native-born. New methods must be developed to grow the Kingdom, to plant and revitalize churches, and to reach our second and third generations with the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12.
- Growing in Stewardship: God is the owner of everything and we are privileged to be His stewards (Psalm 8). The essence of stewardship is man’s faithfulness to God. It touches every area of our lives (family relations, giving patterns, health habits, time management, and care of the environment). As stewards what we do is important, but who we are is most important. We are committed to putting God first in everything we do, with the Bible as our manual and prayer as our method.
