The Mission of the church
Jesus clearly told us what to do, it has never changed. This mission is true for every church whether they accomplish it or not; this is why we are here.
The Mission: Make Disciples of Christ
Mathew 28:19 (NIV)
“go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Luke: 19:10 (NIV)
“For the Son of Man came to seek and save that which was lost.”
The Vision of FOOTHILLS
The vision is how we specifically carry out God’s Mission in our context. It is how we are going to accomplish His Mission.
The Vision: Develop mature disciples of Christ in relational environments.
Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:42-47 (NIV)
We seek to accomplish this vision by:
Sharing the Love of God
-We seek to share God's love in every day situations by living a "missional" life. We also focus on sharing God's love through "Love the City."
Connecting to the People of God
-We connect to God's people through our Sunday morning worship gathering. Small groups are the intentional connecting point for believers to build authentic relationships as well as growing closer to Christ.
Equipping for the Mission of God
-Equipping takes place on many levels. Sunday gatherings, small groups, and through "The Journey." The Journey is our discipleship strategy, which is a series of classes developed to equip our partners for the mission of God.
