“Leading people to a more intimate relationship with God, for His glory.”
This has been our mission statement for many years, reminding us of the overall call on our lives. Working together as a family to see this through, the following ideas are outworkings of this mission statement, and provide a solid summary of who we are, who we are becoming, and why we exist.
Unified in Christ
God has unified us, first and foremost, through the New Covenant in Christ. These covenant promises allow us to be active participants in the Kingdom of God through His power at work within us, transforming our lives from the inside out and enabling us to live in restored relationships with God and one another.
Unified in Our Devotions
We have committed to the practices found in Acts 2:42, where the followers of Jesus devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer. As a family unified in Christ, these practices are used by the Holy Spirit to continually form us into the image of our Savior, and are essential in our call to faithfully follow Jesus.
Unified in Vision
Our goal is to become like Jesus by imitating Him in every way, particularly His focus on caring for people in deep and meaningful ways as He lived His life each day. We have no specific demographic in mind when it comes to who we are trying to reach, but instead feel called to be faithful with the relationships God gives us as we live our lives, obediently carrying the hope of the gospel to everyone we encounter.
Unified in Purpose
God has strategically placed us in Baton Rouge and the surrounding communities to live as followers of Jesus and invite others into life with Him. The church exists for many reasons, one of which is to equip one another to go and minister to the people around us, extending Jesus’ invitation to live abundantly through a restored relationship with God.
