Where We Are Going

Our Vision Statement functions like a bridge to connect our present with the future. It provides a mental image, imparted by God of the way things could be. It is a picture of conditions that do not exist yet, except in the heart. It directs where we are going.

Vision: To See a Gospel Movement on the North Shore

Our long-term desire is to see an extraordinary work of God’s Spirit, in every community on the North Shore, that results in thousands of people meeting Christ, growing as disciples, and serving in Gospel-Centered churches. We want to see lives renewed, families transformed, homes opened up, skeptics welcomed, prayer mobilized, leaders developed, old divisions healed and churches partnering together in mission. We want to take part in a Gospel Movement that declares the reign of Christ and re-aligns all of life to his holy-love – transforming the landscape of the North Shore.

This vision so much bigger than us! This is something only God can do!

Focus: One step, each day, toward rediscovering the wonder of the Gospel

After much prayer and discussion we are asking God to begin with us. We cannot commend to others what we ourselves do not cherish. So we’re praying for all of us to have a life changing rediscovery of the Gospel: youngest to oldest. We want to be gripped daily by the riches of what Christ has done for us – our Living Hope. We want to see increased passion in worship, courage in evangelism, joy in service, hospitality to our neighbors, engagement in community needs, and wisdom to speak the truth in every area of life. We want to live as if the Gospel is true – because it is! Step by step let’s become people that can encourage a Gospel Movement on the North Shore.

Isaiah the prophet prayed, “Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down…” (Isaiah 64:1) Only God can bring about a change of this magnitude. But our prayer is that He would restore “Oh” within us – that he would increase a passion for his Name and renown in our communities.
