Bringing people to Heaven, and Heaven to people!

“It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
(Ephesians 4:11–13)

In the passage above, there are five different types of ministers or ministry gifts listed.  These are often referred to as “the five-fold ministry.”  Each of these fulfills a different purpose in the church, but all are needed!

The purpose or mission statement of this church can be outlined with the following five words that represent the purpose of each of these ministries: reach, keep, help, teach, release. 

Reach – The ministry of the Evangelist.  Our first priority is to reach the lost with the good news of God’s plan of salvation and life-giving truth communicated clearly through our words and actions.  

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)

Keep – The ministry of the Prophet.  Our second priority is to keep as many individuals as the Lord brings to our ministry for as long as possible, with the highest level of involvement as possible, in order that we may continue to help, teach, and eventually release them into ministry.  

“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away… And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me…” (John 6:37-39)

Help – The ministry of the Pastor.  The third priority we have is to help as many as we can to be healed and set free emotionally, relationally, and spiritually through prayer, Godly council, and example.  

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)

Teach – The ministry of the Teacher.  Our fourth priority is to teach those who remain in our ministry the content, meaning, and application of God’s word, so that they will persevere and be victorious in the Faith. 

“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.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Release – The ministry of the Apostle.  Finally, our fifth priority is to train and release individuals to minister to their peers in the present and to multitudes in the future. “After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them,

“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Luke 10:1-2)

We want worshipers who love God and people, and take that love into every area of life.

Through effective discipleship processes that are alive and flowing in the Holy Spirit, we can see raw and broken people come in, receive healing, grow into wholeness, and be released to bring others into the same experience.

We believe that every member of the body should be connected to various groups of believers in which each individual can both give and receive ministry according to the uniqueness of the needs and victories that person has experienced.

To create this environment, our goal is to offer a variety of ministry, worship, learning, and serving opportunities.
