Building lives in Christ
Our mission is our heartbeat. We believe the mission of the church is to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). So, this is how we say that!
Connecting People to God, Others, & Purpose
Our vision is how we see our mission being accomplished. In other words, this is what building lives in Christ looks like: people getting connected to God, then getting connected to other Christians, then connecting to their kingdom purpose. This is our discipleship process.
OUR CORE VALUES
Reaching People Far From God
Jesus came to seek and save the lost, so we strive to do the same.
We value reaching out in grace and truth into our communities as we show and share who Jesus is.
We are willing to do anything short of sin to reach those who do not know Jesus (Luke19:10).
The Word Lived Out
We hunger to learn and live out God’s Word as it is our ultimate source of truth and guidance. We believe that our spiritual transformation into the Image of Christ demands our engagement into the Word of God. Saying that, we don’t want to merely be hearers of the Word but doers as well. (James1:22, Matthew7:24)
The Next Generation
We believe that our best legacy and investments are to the next generation. Jesus highly valued children, so we do too. The students of today are the leaders of the church tomorrow.
Doing Life Together
We are not strong enough to do this life alone. We believe God designed us to thrive within the context of relationship. We need relationships that are Christ centered that will push us toward Christlikeness.
Made For More
Each of us has a part to play in building lives in Christ, which is our Kingdom Purpose. We challenge ourselves and one another to discover our kingdom purpose by serving, trying new things, and stepping out of our comfort zone so lives can be built in Christ. (Ephesians2:10)
None of us are perfect so we must have humility towards each other, allowing one another to make mistakes, change, and grow.
For us, unity is an expectation as we believe that our health and growth depends on us staying unified. Simply put, JRCC belongs to Jesus.
