Missions

"Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t." - John Piper, 'Let the Nations Be Glad'
Our Vision is, 'to see all people anchored in God's Truth, and become who they were made to be', and we accomplish this by focusing on 3 aspects which we call the 'UP / IN / OUT' principle.

  • We first look UP to God, fixing our eyes on Christ, the author and finisher of our faith.
  • We then look IN to ensure we are being the Church that God has called us to be - able to disciple all those in our midst.
  • Next we look OUT, seeking to share the good news of Jesus with those around us. This is where missions falls, and we do NOT consider this the least important of the 3, but rather the overflow of the first 2! When our UP and IN is done right, we won't be able to help ourselves from reaching OUT, and it will be the most genuine outreach that there is - just like Jesus.

It's our heart and hope that we would be a launching point for missions trips all over the world, every summer. Right now, our Elder/Missions Pastor, Claudio Catena leads trips with MSI (Medical Servants International) to several places in Africa, and we hope to extend and expand the reach. 

May we be the hands and feet of Jesus as he looks to seek and save those who are lost.
