COMMITMENTS TO OUR MISSION AND VISION
1. PRAYER
We commit ourselves to making prayer the highest priority of the church demonstrated by:

  • Our church becoming a house of prayer for all nations.

  • Emphasizing communication with God as the highest privilege and greatest responsibility of every member.

  • Modeling by all church leadership of an active and effective prayer life.

  • Uniting with other believers in corporate and intercessory prayer.

(Isa. 56:7; Mark 11:17; Rom. 8:26; 1 Cor. 14:14, 15; I Thess. 5:17; I Tim. 2:1-4, 8; James 5:14, 15)
 
2. PENTECOSTAL WORSHIPWe commit ourselves to gather regularly as the local expression of the Body of Christ to participate in Pentecostal worship that exalts God, engages the heart, mind and soul, and challenges to deeper commitment and discipleship. This commitment will be demonstrated by

  • Modeling varying styles and forms of worship that glorify God and encouraging outreach and service.

  • Emphasizing the importance of Biblical stewardship and the centrality of God’s Word as elements of worship.

(John 4:24; Psalm 29:2; Rom. 12:1; 1 Cor. 12:4-11; Isa. 58; Mat. 25:31-46)
 
3. WORLD EVANGELIZATIONWe commit ourselves to intentionally reaching the unconverted, baptizing them in water, and leading them to unite with the church. This commitment will be demonstrated by:

  • Viewing all the nations of the world as our mission field.

  • Cultivating a genuine passion for the lost that will compel members to personally communicate the gospel of Jesus and demonstrate His love to those outside the faith.

  • Discipling new believers and passing on our faith to the next generation.

  • Practicing life-style evangelism.

(Mat. 9:37-38; Mat. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:8; Rom. 10:13-15)
  
4. LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENTWe commit ourselves to identifying and developing individuals whom God has called and given leadership gifts and challenging them to become servant-leaders. We will demonstrate our commitment by:

  • Creating an environment in which men and women with ministry gifts are developed to serve as servant-leaders.

  • Equipping, empowering and releasing lay leaders to serve as ministry partners both inside and outside the church.

(Mark 3:13-15; 2 Tim. 2:2; 2:15; 3:14-17; Eph. 4:11-13)
 
5. CAREWe commit ourselves to the challenge of being a church that genuinely cares for one another and for those who are lost, hurting and needy. We will demonstrate our commitment by:

  • Building loving, caring relationships within families, between members, and within the communities we serve.

  • Obeying the Care Commission of Christ in Matthew 25.

  • Cultivating compassion and showing mercy to the unloved, the undesirable and the unreached of our society.

(Psa. 86:15; Mat. 25; Luke 6:36; Acts 20:28)
