What We Believe

Vision and Values

 

We are a community of followers of Christ who seek to glorify God, love people and serve the world.
We take seriously the words of Jesus, that the Greatest Commandment is to love God and our neighbor and that the Great Commission is to make disciples of all nations. Hence the mission statement GC²…. Great Commandment x Great Commission.

Mission: “Why do we exist?”
We exist to glorify God, to love people, and to make disciples of Christ in all nations

Vision:   ”What is our preferred future?”
To see ourselves and all nations transformed by God
