A Commitment to DISCIPLEMAKING:
Growing in Christ: We envision a church that develops people–new believers as well as more mature followers– into individuals who are becoming more and more like Jesus in their character, their attitudes, and their behavior. We see our members growing in Christ through godly habits developed individually, in small and mid-size groups, and in worship services. As a result we see a church family that loves, encourages, and fellowships with one another.
Serving Christ: We envision a church where “every member is a minister” where people are serving the Lord faithfully, having discovered how they are uniquely shaped by God for ministry. We see our people aware of their God-given spiritual gifts, equipped to serve Christ effectively and integrated into a ministry, within or outside our church, that matches who they are. We also see existing ministries thriving and new ministries starting up because of the uniquely-shaped individuals God brings to us.
Sharing Christ: We envision a church family that is enthusiastic about sharing the Good News with those that God is putting within their circle of influence. We see our people encouraged and equipped to share their testimonies wherever God places them –at work, over coffee, at home around the dinner table, at the park while their kids are playing… We see thousands of people coming to faith in Jesus from Eagle Rock and surrounding communities, and we see new believers being baptized as a testimony to lives changed by God’s grace.
