Helping People Find and Follow Jesus.
This is our mission.
This is why we exist.
This is what we are trying to do.
Throughout the Bible, we see God's constant pursuit of people. This relationship happens through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
As a church we don't have everything figured out, but following Jesus and helping others along the way is where we'll start.
We begin to live this mission out with the following five values.
- Circles Are Better Than Rows
Around a table, in a living room, over coffee. These are the environments in which things change in. Our goal isn't to just get people to show up on Sundays, but for people to be able to take a step towards a relationship with God and others.
- Growing People Change
Following Jesus is not static or something to be achieved. It is something to be started and continued. We believe that everyone that encounters Jesus is changed. So if we are following Jesus, our lives become different.
- Saved People Serve
Finding Jesus means that we are reconnected with God, forgiven and saved. Such incredible generosity shown to us by Jesus should compel us to respond with generosity. Serving others, whether in the context of Movement Church or elsewhere, is a natural outflow of following Jesus.
- Found People Find People
Finding and following Jesus is the best thing that can ever happen to someone. This incredible experience changes lives now and forever! Therefore your own experience, your story, cannot be contained. It should be shared with others in order to help others find and follow Jesus!
- You Can't Out Give God
Being generous with your resources isn't a requirement, it is an opportunity to acknowledge that your resources aren't yours in the first place.
