VISION 2020

"Most churches do not want to be effective in reaching people enough to change."     Steve Stroope, Tribal Church

“The majority of professing Christians would not say their purpose in this life is to make disciples of all nations.”   David Platt, Follow Me

 

Making Disciples Who Make Disciples… Come & Know + Connect & Grow + Serve & Go

      It’s All About Jesus… Matthew 9-10; 28:18-20;   Ephesians 3-4;   Acts 2

Our Convictions determine  Our Values/Daily Decion-Making which sets Our Passions/Motivations.

     Vision > Mission/Purpose > Strategy/Blueprint/Map

     Our Vision must be Clear, Concise, Concrete, Compelling

 

What if…?     Dreaming BIG… imagine impossible, set goals, develop action plans, rely on God, keep a reign on pride, celebrate

     + What would you do for God if you knew you couldn't fail?

     + Are we here for God & His kingdom or are we here only when it fits our schedule of other events/commitments?

     + Are we followers of Christ or followers of many things including God just in our own way?

 

VISION 20/20… 2020 salvations in 2020
