Mission & Vision

SFBC#4Our Mission

“Our mission is to love God, love people, and make disciples.”

We base our mission statement on the following two important New Testament passages:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore 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 28:18-20

Our Vision

Our vision is to see God do a mighty work in which His grace and power are evidenced by seeing people come to Him in faith to experience lives of forgiveness, fullness, and joy. We strive to be a church that honors God by valuing people over programs, policies, or facilities; a church that honors God by cultivating a Christ-like, loving atmosphere in the church body; a church that honors God by equipping and encouraging every person to use their abilities and spiritual gifts; a church that honors God with relationships that are ruled by honesty, sincerity, character, and integrity; a church that honors God by sharing Christ locally and globally; a church that honors God by promoting the qualities of excellence and relevance in all they do.

We strive to be a church that is not bound by tradition, denominationalism, or personal preference; a church which reflects a relaxed, casual, and friendly atmosphere; a church which displays the true spirit of a servant, seeking the best for one another; a church that is under the leadership of the pastor, staff, and servant leaders, who together seek the mind of Christ and equip the body to minister; a church that realizes its greatest potential lies in its people who are built up, encouraged, recognized, and equipped.
