What is God’s vision for our church? After several months of exploring this question we are ready to move ahead with clarity and purpose. In this series we will unpack our vision: “to be a church that is devoted to lifelong growth, healthy relationships, warm hospitality, walking with the wounded and introducing people to Jesus.” In each message we’ll explore the biblical basis for this vision statement and we’ll invite people to consider what this means for them and for our church community as we pursue God’s future together.
We pursue healthy relationships, taking seriously Jesus’ command to love each other in the same way that he loves us. We build trust with each other, being consistent in encouragement, accepting grace and offering forgiveness. We engage in positive conflict, not ignoring tough questions and not dividing over non-essential issues. We learn from and enrich each other, embracing our diversity across generations, cultures and backgrounds.
