To see God glorified through fulfilment of the Great Commandment (1) and the Great Commission (2).
(1) Matthew 22:37-40 – Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
(2) Matthew 28:18-20 – Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
To encourage and equip the church to glorify God, through His Son Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church, in the power of the Holy Spirit. The means to fulfilling this mission is through our obeying:
a) the Great Commandment to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, soul and minds, and to love our neighbors as ourselves, and
b) the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples at home and around the world.
