Our church is committed to the task of Going or being "Missional." Jesus
sent His disciples on a mission. The missional church defines
itself in terms of its mission—being sent ones who take the gospel to
and incarnate the gospel within a specific culture. This means that we are gospel centered people living out Jesus in our everyday life, at home, work and in our community. Mission Expert and author Ed Stetzer wrote in his book "Missional Manifesto:" "Properly understanding the meaning of missional begins with recognizing
God's missionary nature. The Father is the source of mission, the Son is
the embodiment of that mission, and mission is done in the power of the
Spirit. By nature, God is the "sending one" who initiates the
redemption of His whole creation. Jesus consistently spoke of Himself as
being "sent" in John's gospel and subsequently commissioned His
disciples for this same purpose (John 17:3, 8, 18, 21, 23, 25). As the
"sent" people of God, the church is the instrument of His mission (John
20:21). You can see that this becomes not a program, but rather a
way of life. Eric Mason adds this to the conversation; "We want to
develop disciples that are able to minister in the culture
and help new disciples to grow in God's word in every area of their
lives and shining the truth of the person of Jesus Christ to the glory
of the Triune God."
