On Sunday our church (Highland Christian Fellowship) affirmed our Constitution and Covenant for the first time! They describe who we are and who we hope to be. Included is our purpose and vision:
Our purpose as a local body is to
- Love God.
- Love people.
- Make disciples.
Our vision is to make disciples of all nations by leading people to faith in Jesus Christ and teaching them to walk with him by living in loving obedience to his commandments; to accomplish this
- by strengthening families in godly marriages and discipleship of children,
- by building a healthy body active in individual and corporate prayer and ministry,
- by serving the poor, sick, imprisoned, and unprotected,
- by establishing new, reproducing church fellowships, and
- by participating in and supporting the worldwide effort to make disciples of all nations.
