Our Vision is Encouraging, Equipping and Empowering God’s Children for Kingdom Building

And he said, “Truly I say to you, unless you will be converted and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”  Matthew 18:3 – Aramaic Bible in Plain English  

Living in a fallen world we must encourage, equip and empower collectively to prevail in doing what God has called us to do individually.

Encourage one another (2 Corinthians 13:10-12)

10 This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority—the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down.

11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss.

Focus – Appreciate people, lift spirits

Equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Focus – Provide tools and resources through teaching, training, guidance, experience, and networking

Empowered to Prevail (Luke 10:18-20)

18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Focus – To enhance or remove the distractions and/or hindrances of the worship experience; communicating, social networking, sound system, available resources, and cleanliness

 

Kingdom Building (Matthew 16:19)

19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
