My Personal Vision
I see a church that is driven by God's vision to be bold and innovative to do whatever it takes to reach the lost for Christ.
I see a place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be non-threatening and friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant. The music is contemporary and upbeat with a praise team.
I see a church that is fun for the entire family, a church where kids want to go - because they have a great time experiencing God's love. I see a church that builds successful families.
I see a church where teenagers have a great time in a dynamic youth ministry where they are loved and accepted and shown how much they matter to God.
I see a church that reaches hundreds of teenagers for Christ and accepts and loves teenagers like Jesus does.
I see a church where Christians can grow in home Bible studies and classes offered by the church. I see home Bible studies and bible conference call devotionals where people can learn more about God's Word and develop close friendships that will last a lifetime.
I see a church that helps every member find their ministry and lets them use their gifts and abilities to meet other's needs.
