Our Vision for the Future
We exist to declare the love of Jesus and transform lives. Like branches of a tree stretching out to bloom, we will reach out into every neighborhood in our valley so that they can experience the transforming power of God’s people on mission. Everywhere you turn in our region you will see followers of Jesus fulfilling their purpose in loving God, loving people and making disciples. As a local church we call forth and grow disciples for this purpose, igniting a passion in the hearts of leaders and influencers to bear fruit for the gospel cause.
No more are the days of a valley littered with broken people and broken families. No more are the days of young lives being sold short, of people struggling to find meaning and purpose, of lives held captive by addiction, poverty, and conflict. No more are the days of the church drifting aimlessly as it slowly loses its significance with each passing generation. Instead, we will work with the Holy Spirit as it flows through our region like a mighty river, bringing freedom, life, and transformation.
This is our church’s moment in time, only we have the answer to the deepest problems that invade our towns; and we will declare that answer in all we do: that Jesus is raising the dead to life, his Spirit transforming hearts and minds for the Kingdom of God. We will not sit back in our own comfort, but join with God as he seeks this end for all people.
So therefore, we seek, with every fiber of our being, to raise up disciples and change the lives of people we meet through the love of God. We will not stop until we have a network of ministries throughout the West Valley bringing freedom and transformation by the love of Christ. One day every person in the West Valley will know that we exist, and know our message. They will know that there is a place of belonging, a place of transformation, and a God who can make them more than they ever imagined they could be. Because we are the church of Jesus Christ, and through him we can transform lives!
