WE EXIST AS A CHURCH TO GLORIFY GOD BY MAKING WHOLEHEARTED FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST
Living wholehearted means living on mission, and following Christ means following His command - to make disciples of all nations, including ours.
This starts here, as we LIVE intentionally in the places God already has us - our neighborhoods, workplaces, schools and communities. We make disciples here that will be disciple-makers wherever they go. This is our purpose in the cities of Watkinsville and Athens, to spread the Gospel and make disciples that will make disciples here and abroad.
But it doesn't end here. We also GO and SEND to the nations, to partner with local churches where they exist, or establish new churches where none exist, all for the ultimate purpose of spreading the Gospel of Christ and making disciples of all nations for the glory of our great God.
We do NOT ask, "Am I called to missions?", because to follow Christ is to be on mission.
We DO ask, "How has God wired and gifted me? What skills, talents and opportunities has He given me that I can leverage strategically for His mission?"
And then we lay it all on the table. Have you done that? Have you laid down your comforts? Your future, plans, finances, time, and preferences? Your family and friends - have you held them out before God and said "I will go anywhere and do anything, anytime - if You send me, I will go."
Whether God leads you to stay or to go, to move across counties or continents, to cross the street or the ocean, we want to see you praying, giving, going and sending strategically on the mission of God, in our city and around the world.
