We exist to Know God, grow in Christ and go on mission
We can only know God through Christ Jesus and the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16). We must first knowGod through Jesus and see that others hear about this gospel news to know God. We will know the word, love the word, and obey the word.
The goal of discipleship is that we become fully mature in Jesus (John 15:4-8). Growing happens when we are connected to Jesus and his desire become our desires. Our powers of discernment increase and are trained (Hebrews ). And, we become adults, the kind of adults who reflect the image of God.
The mission of God has been given to his church through Christ Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). We are disciples that must make disciples of Jesus. A natural result is to go on mission with Him where we live, where we work, where we play. We do not depend on the gathering of the saints alone but recognize the the call of God on every Christian to go and spread the good news that has been given to us.
