Who We Are and What We Do
The Mission of God
All things exist and are being worked according to the triune God’s passion, pleasure and plan (Ephesians 1:11), which is the demonstration of His glory. God creates, calls, rescues, redeems, saves, restores, restrains and grants all to the end for the praise of His glory. His desire, is that the knowledge of His glory would cover the earth as the waters do the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). God’s mission is the manifestation of His magnificence. His mission is glory. The glory of God is the gravity that keeps those who see and savor it from spinning off into the vanity of sin. God’s desire is that He might be known and enjoyed for His nature and character. He seeks to be recognized as supremely valuable, supremely worthy and supremely splendid. God’s glory is sensed when we feel the reality of His presence, goodness and superiority. Isaiah 48:9-11, Ephesians 1:3-14, Isaiah 43:6-7, Ezekiel 20:14.
The Mission of the Church
The mission of the Church universal is to glorify God by making disciples through the gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s mission and the mission of His Church are inseparably linked. If God’s mission is to be glorified through the redemption and reconciliation of His people, the Church’s mission must center around the glory of God and seek to glorify Him through redemption and reconciliation.
In 2 Corinthians 5, the mission of the church is explained as follows. As those who have been reconciled to God through the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are now ambassadors of reconciliation to a lost and broken world. We plead, urge, implore, reason, pray, serve, preach, teach and gather to see God glorified through reconciliation.
