disciple-making disciples by knowing God intimately, serving one another
intentionally, and engaging the world eagerly.
Our mission defines what we are called to do. Specifically,
it establishes our divine mandate, given by Jesus, Himself, to make disciples
that in turn are equipped to make other disciples, and so on. And the way in
which we seek to fulfill our divine mission is three-fold (understood in
directional terms: UP, IN, and OUT). UP refers to our vertical relationship
with God. IN refers to our intentional pursuit of one another (our local church
family). OUT refers to our evangelistic efforts by gossiping the gospel in
every context of life. It is worth noting that the order of these “means”
matter. In other words, only from a healthy relationship with God can I
effectively and intentionally serve Christ’s Church. And only through a
lifestyle of intentionally serving others am I equipped and empowered to
gossip the gospel to other people in other places.
