OUR MISSION AND VALUES

MISSION: 
To transform and renew individual lives, the community, and the next generation through a movement of church planting and the proclamation of the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Historic Downtown Jerome

TRANSFORMING LIVES.

​We recognize that outside of the transforming and redemptive power of Jesus, there can be no lasting transformation in the lives of people. We are therefore Gospel-centric in our purpose and mission.  We desire for all to be reconciled to God for eternity and to walk in newness of life with Him forever.

Romans 12:2

Ephesians 4:22-24

Colossians 1:19-22

 

RENEWING COMMUNITY.​

We desire to bring light and life to downtown Jerome by creating a public space where the community encounters the Kingdom of God, where lasting relationships can be formed, where love and compassion are poured into people, and where a renewed sense of community is forged.

Matthew 5:14-16

Matthew 11:28

 

PROACTIVELY REACHING A GENERATION.

​We feel that passing on the knowledge of God and what He has accomplished through Christ is an essential responsibility of the Church.  Rather than react to a God-less generation, we desire to pour into the Generation to come.  We understand that this is accomplished by proactively engaging children, youth, and young families.

Judges 2:10

Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Ephesians 6:4

 

 

KINGDOM MENTALITY.

​We are not alone in our core values and mission.  We strongly desire to partner with other evangelical churches in mission and transform the culture of the Church itself through unity.  Our space and our resources are not our own.  We value and practice joint ministry with an open hand.

John 17:20-23

Ephesians 4:4

Philippians 2:1-3

1 Corinthians 1:10

 

 

 

 

BIBLICAL AUTHORITY.

We believe that the Bible is infallible and gives us the clearest image of who God is and what He desires for our lives. It becomes the lens by which we view and live life.  It is through this lens that we engage culture and embraces our community.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Hebrews 4:12

 

 

 

CHURCH MULTIPLICATION.

We believe that in order to reach the varied groups of people in this world, there must be varying expressions of Christ’s Church. We also know that the greatest way for people to come to know Christ is through church planting.  Our passion and our goal are to begin a movement of non-traditional church planting in rural America.

Matthew 28:19-20

Acts 1:8

Luke 14:23
