The vision statement is how the mission is going to be fulfilled. "We are a regional church reaching Western Oklahoma one person at a time. Our vision is to see people saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, and released to ministry service for God and His Kingdom."
Our church is guided by The Great Commandment and The Great Commission. Our mission is biblically-based and relevant. Our mission is to reach people for Christ, grow them strong in Christ, so they can go out and make a difference for Christ in the world. We believe the local church is the hope of the world!
"We believe in a great commitment to The Great Commandment and the Great Commission will grow a great church!" We call this "The Miracle Of And" - As we love God and love others, we will fulfill The Great Commission!
The Great Commandment
"Jesus said, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart...soul...and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.'" Matthew 22:36-40
The Great Commission
"Jesus said, 'God and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'" Matthew 28:19-20
To "Love God with all your heart" is "Worship."
To "Love your neighbor as yourself" is Ministry."
To "Go...make disciples" is "Evangelism."
To "Teach them...all things" is "Discipleship."
Our vision places worship, ministry, evangelism, and discipleship as the cornerstones of our church with the Lord Jesus Christ being the Chief Cornerstone.
The Compassion of Jesus - Matthew 9:35-38
35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
We are a regional church reaching Western Oklahoma. Our vision is to see people saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered, and serving.
