Vision 2018: Developing People

In 2018, we’re focusing on people. God has given each of us great love in Jesus, along with immense potential to make an impact on His world. In this video, Pastor Matt walks through the steps we’ll take to develop people by bringing forth the love that God has for them. This love moves us past “spiritual consumers” and transforms us into leaders who influence others for the better. We’re eager to equip you to be the Surprise of God to a world in need!
2018 Theme Verse
But Jesus said, “No go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been (Matt 5:19).
After Jesus saves this troubled man, he says NO when the man asks to come with Jesus. Instead, Jesus sends the man back to his family and community to explain what happened.  Like the man, all Christ-followers are not simply “saved” or forgiven as if there is nothing more than the story than securing eternal fire insurance. Instead, we are adopted into a family that serves as a force for Good in the world!  That means that our homes, schools, neighborhoods, and workplaces are not irrelevant and unspiritual; they’re mission fields where we’re sent to share the good news of God’s mercy!
