Our mission – “Leading people to faith and maturity in Christ“
>> Help seekers become believers
>> Help believers become fully devoted followers
Our vision: Become a contagious community of fully devoted followers of Jesus
Part 1: Leading Seekers To Faith In Christ
Contact > Community > Conversion
Our mission begins with personal outreach. Establish contact and common ground with people you know who are spiritually curious. Talk about your faith in the Lord. Help them understand: “It’s not about religion, it’s about a relationship.” Invite them to a mid-week Life Group or a service at Good News so they can experience worship, truth and community. Pray they will one day ask the Lord Jesus Christ to be their forgiver and leader.
Part 2: Leading Believers To Maturity In Christ
Life Group > Service > Stewardship
In small groups—we call them Life Groups—believers grow in love for one another, appreciation of God’s Word, and devotion to Jesus through bible study, prayer, fellowship, accountability, and serving. This growth continues as we serve together, using our God-given abilities to help the church reach its potential, and as we give generously, investing our resources in the work of leading people to faith and maturity in Christ.
Our Core Values…
The following values are not merely aspirational, they are what Good News BIble Chapel values more than normal. We aren’t perfect at them, but we’re working to nurture these valuable qualities in real and noticeable ways in our church family.
We are unapologetically Bible-based because there is no other source that reveals to us the truth of God in a greater way. And the clear focus is on Jesus — in worship, gospel, and mission.
We intentionally pursue humble authenticity in our relationships because it is impossible to grow in your faith without it.
We are purposefully sent on mission into our world to be a blessing to those that are near and far from God because God sent Jesus to us and the Holy Spirit sends us to others.
We are passionately committed to serve generations other than our own because my preference is secondary when it comes to the needs of others.
We indiscriminately care for the needs of others above our own because Jesus set our example by becoming a servant for us, and commanded us to love God, love our neighbors, love each other, and even love our enemies.
