The mission of our church seeks to answer the question, “Why do we exist?” And the vision answers the question, “What will the future look like if we fulfill our mission?”
And our mission is the same as what the Church’s mission has always been:
“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:19-20
We distill Jesus’ Great Commission in these two ways:
1. The effective proclamation of the Gospel to all humanity, making “disciples” of Jesus.
2. The development and transformation of those disciples’ character into the character of Christ Himself.
So this is our combined Mission + Vision:
Mission: To make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded.
Vision: A community following Jesus, seeking renewal in our city.
And here are some measurables of how we define success in carrying out our vision and mission. Success is when people in our church are:
Cultivating deep and intentional intimacy with God
Living in authentic community
Becoming more like Jesus
Radically and practically demonstrating the love of Jesus in word and deed in the city
Here is a shorthand way of saying this:
Reality SF exists to be:
With Each Other
For the World
