First and foremost, our vision is to glorify God by exalting His Son Jesus Christ. We do so by preaching and teaching the Word of God, which is the Bible; by worship in song; and by celebrating the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper – so that we may be equipped to build up the body of believers and present each person complete in Christ. We diligently seek God so that we may know His character and attain unity in faith with others.
Secondly, proclaiming the excellencies of Christ is our proper response in obedience, out of gratitude for His grace, and because He is infinitely worthy. We want to impact the community through evangelism, missions, and acts of benevolence – sowing the seed of the gospel as missionaries, through word and deed. Our earnest desire is to see missional communities planted throughout Northside Village that bring transformation to the city for the glory of God.
Witness Transformed Lives
Finally, we pray that God will raise up believers within the community so that we can train them to be the salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16) in their homes and missionaries to their own community. It is the gospel of Jesus Christ that transforms our lives and our city. Who we are and what we do is centered on the proclamation of the gospel—kerusso (proclaim) grace—so that through gospel proclamation lives be transformed and God be glorified.
