NOTHING IS SACRED EXCEPT FOR JESUS
No method will ever get in the way of the message that we hold so sacred. No committee, bean supper or style of music will be more important than Jesus!
"Jesus told him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.'"
IN THIS HOUSE EVERYONE IS WELCOME WELCOME HOME.
Next to God and Jesus, we love people. No matter your background, political persuasion (if you even have one), you are welcome and valued at Mission City Church. It's the second greatest commandment:
"Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:39
HONOR JESUS IN ALL WE DO
We do things with excellence. Whether in our environments, print material or ministry in general. Why? Because it honors Jesus—plus, He deserves it!
"Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people." Colossians 3:23
DISCIPLES PLANT CHURCHES
It's in our DNA, We will make more disciples and plant more churches. We take seriously the words of Jesus:
"Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20.
SAVED PEOPLE SERVE PEOPLE
Jesus said Himself, "I did not come to be served, but to serve." He rescued us, and enlists us to join Him so that others would experience His love and salvation.
"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:28
LIVING AND GIVING LIKE JESUS
Biblical generosity is not just about what's in your wallet, but what's in your heart. Jesus not only modeled generosity for us, but He also commanded us to remember that it is better to give than to receive. That's why generosity is a given for us with our time, talents, and treasure.
"And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’"
COME ON SOMEBODY!
We celebrate everything that God is doing -because He's worthy of all our praise! Clap, shout, whistle, cow bells, cakes, or you name it -we celebrate God and make no apologies!
"Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works... Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!" Psalms 150:1-6
