About Our Church:

Our mission is to help unchurched people become fully devoted followers of Christ. It’s our way of saying, “We believe the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) is our commission.”

Our Vision:

The Church Next Door:

Jesus said, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39). We ask the question, what would it look like for an entire church to love its neighbors in practical ways?” For us, The Church Next Door involves:

· Individuals and families serving as great neighbors in their neighborhoods

· Small Groups adopting projects that help their communities in small ways

· The entire church working together on a large project every year or two

The goal of The Church Next Door is to reach every home and person in our surrounding community by touching them in meaningful ways that let them know that God cares for them. In order to accomplish this, we intend to develop teaching and touching ministry, roles and relationships to people in every age, stage and ethnicity in our area, some of which will be delivered to these groups, rather than asking them to come to our church location.
