Church Vision<br />To become an ever-growing full-service fellowship (church) reaching people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds within our community region, and beyond <br />enhancing their quality of life by ministering to the total person (mind, body and soul) with changeless and life transforming message of Jesus Christ. <br />

  6. 6. In the church there are two major <br />problems related to the subject of spiritual gifts: <br />1. Too few Christians are involved in any kind of ministry.

Those who are actively involved in the ministry of the local church, but who are not functioning in a ministry which corresponds to their spiritual gifts. <br />Spiritual Gifts<br />
  7. 7. 1 Peter 4:10 Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God.<br />Spiritual gifts are a matter of individual stewardship<br />

  12. 12. To conduct a critical reflection of our church’s<br />overall effectiveness in ministry as it pertains<br />to our church vision and mission. <br /> <br />***The purpose is not to critique the church, but to enable transformational ministry to build on the church's strengths while confronting weaknesses and avoiding past mistakes. <br />What is the purpose of the Evaluation Process?<br />
  13. 13. Is its fellowship warm and loving? <br />Does it demonstrate and practice its commitment to God’s Word? <br />Are the decisions of its leaders and church body made through prayer and in faith? <br />Are you growing in love with God daily as a result of being associated with this church? <br />Are you held accountable for your own obedience to God’s Word outside the church? <br />Are your leaders men and women of integrity, character and love? <br />Do your leaders show evidence of spiritual growth over the course of time? <br />How do you view your church?<br />
  14. 14. What is the our Vision?<br />To become an <br />ever-growing <br />full-service fellowship (church) <br />reaching<br />people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds <br />within our community region, and beyond <br />enhancing their quality of life by <br />ministering to <br />the total person (mind, body and soul) <br />with changeless and life transforming message of Jesus Christ. <br />
