And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
-Matthew 22:37-40 (ESV)
Loving God. Loving People.
Connect Church has developed our mission statement from the message of this verse. Our mission as a congregation is to simply Love God and, motivated by the love He has for us, Love People. We can trace everything that we do as a church to this vision. Everything Connect Church does comes from our motivation to love God and to love others. This vision, combined with the command of the Great Commission to go to all of the ends of the Earth to share the love of Jesus Christ, gives us our purpose statement:
- We are a family of believers committed in sharing the MESSAGE of salvation and in promoting spiritual MATURITY, striving in all things to MAGNIFY our redeemer.
- We will share the Message of salvation to a lost and dying world (evangelism).
- We Will help people Mature in Christ (fellowship, discipleship)
- We will Magnify our Savior and praise Him for all that He has done and will continue to do for us. (worship, service)
We invite you to join us as we seek to fulfill this purpose!
