TO ENCOURAGE AND CHALLENGE STUDENTS IN RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
We want our students to feel encouraged by our leaders and one another to follow Jesus faithfully and escape the pressures of the world, and rest in a loving community. However, we also want to challenge our students to grow in their knowledge, understanding, and love for Jesus Christ as their God, Savior, and King! This part of our vision is based on 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24!
TO SHARE THE LOVE AND HOPE FOUND ONLY IN JESUS CHRIST WITH SEEKING STUDENTS
Through our behavior and teachings, we desire all students who attend our meetings and events to feel safe, welcomed, and surrounded by the love and hope of Jesus! We want students to explore the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and come to a saving relationship with Him! This part of our vision is based on John 13:34-35.
TO EQUIP AND MOBILIZE STUDENTS TO SHARE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY
Our church's vision is "To Know God, and make Him Known to All People." We believe that students are not the future church; they are part of the church right now. Therefore, we must equip and mobilize students to share Jesus locally and globally. We equip students to share the good news of Jesus using their own stories interwoven with the grand narrative of the world. Then we mobilize students in two ways: by providing opportunities for mission-focused events locally and globally and by celebrating our students' gospel conversations. Based on Matthew 28:19-20.
TO CONNECT WITH PARENTS AS THE PRIMARY DISCIPLE-MAKER SO THE FAMILY WINS
We believe that God has designed parents to be the primary Disciple-makers of their children. Meaning the parents are to model and teach their children what it means to live a life in obedience to Jesus. We acknowledge that this responsibility is difficult and brings many challenges, and we desire to help equip and support parents by partnering together. Based on Deuteronomy 6:4-7.
