.: THE VISION OF EXISTENCE
The Vision of Existence Church is to become an Inclusive Mission Community.
As a church, we desire to see people start a relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe God has put specific people in our life for a reason and that reason is to encourage and point them to Jesus. The hope of the world does not rest on our shoulders, but the hope of someone does. (Romans 10:14-15)
As a church, we desire to see people experience the love of God through servanthood. We believe God has called us to love others not only through the words we say, but the action we take. When we do this we reveal the love of God in practical ways. (1 John 3:16-18)
As a church, we desire to see people grow in their relationship with God as they grow in their relationship with others. We believe God intentionally designed us to live within the context of community. No one should grow alone, celebrate alone, struggle alone or simply do life alone. (Mark 12:28-31)
.: THE VALUES OF EXISTENCE
What does it mean to call Existence home? Below is a brief list of some of things we value at Existence.
PASSIONATE FOLLOWERS / PASSIONATE SEEKERS
We value passionate followers and passionate seekers. If you are a follower of Jesus at Existence Church we encourage you to be the most passionate follower of Jesus you know. If you are checking things out and have yet to start a relationship with Jesus, we encourage you to be the most passionate seeker you know.
ATTEND CHURCH REGULARLY
We value coming together on a regular basis to gather in community on Sunday mornings. It is important to worship together, to study scripture together, to interact together and overall to become a larger family together.
GET INVOLVED IN A LIFE GROUP
We value getting involved in life groups. Life groups are where people are able to grow in their faith and live out the vision of Existence in a smaller group setting. It is a place where people can know others and be known by others, where they can pray and be prayed for, encourage and be encouraged.
SERVE ONCE A MONTH
We value taking time to serve once a month. We know that we have a relationship with God by grace and grace alone. It is not by working for it or earning it. However, if we are really serious about following Jesus, then we will make it a priority to live like Jesus.
HONOR GOD WITH YOUR RESOURCES
We value honoring God with the resources He has entrusted to us. We understand that God wants us to trust Him with every part of our life (especially our finances) and not just a compartment of our life. Honoring God with our resources allows us to exercise our faith, bless others and expand the Kingdom of God.
INVITE SOMEONE TO CHURCH
We value inviting others to church. God has placed people in our life for a reason and we want to encourage and point them to Jesus. We desire to experience a real, authentic relationship with God, that is reflected in our love for others.
