The Vision Statement in four simple words:
These words are expressing the minimum expectations of members.
Members are to GATHER
Every member should attend faithfully a worship service every week. Christians are commanded to worship the Lord together. Read Acts 2:42-47. not only are we called to worship the Lord, but we are also to encourage one another when we gather together.
Members are to CONNECT
That’s the word picture to describe locking hands and arms eith others. We are called to connect together in a small group (ministry, organizations, class leader system, bible study, Sunday school, and others).
Members are to GO
The members should be involved in at least one ministry in the church each year. Many should be involved in ministries that got them involved outside the walls of the church. The Great Commission should be at the heart of what we do as part of the process of discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20).
Members are to GIVE
Every member should be a regular and faithful financial giver to the church. Jesus, Himself, said it best:
“wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be” (Matthew 6:21).
