Mandate & Mission Statement
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
The Reason for Our Mandate
In the Matthew 28:19-20, the grammatical implication of the present participle verbs, go, make, baptize, and teach do not all carry the same weight in our Lord’s command. While the verbs go, baptize, and teach communicate actions to be taken, only the verb make is an imperative expressing a command; the others simple state actions that are carried out to complete the directive.
Therefore, this command to make disciples becomes the marching orders of the Church. Understandably, we are to go--that is, get into action, begin to move, or take action concerning something, for nothing comes from complacency or laxness.
Our purpose is to reach people for Christ through the five fold ministry of the New Testament church; drawing them through evangelism, bringing them into fellowship, leading them into worship, equipping them through discipleship, and moving them into ministry.
We are here to help the hurting by showing love, acceptance, and the forgiveness found in Jesus Christ. To welcome anyone into our church family who desires to develop to spiritual maturity through the Word of God.
To experience God building His church in the Hancock County community. To be an established fellowship of believers, whose sole purpose is to reach the un-churched, lead believers into spiritual growth, and influence our community for Christ.
Psalm 127:1, Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
God wants to build his church through willing, obedient, sanctified people; but He uses imperfect people to accomplish it.
