THE PRIORITY OF MISSIONS

We exist to know, love, worship, enjoy, and live with and for the Lord. We (individually and corporately) were created by God to live for his glory. We believe we do this best by keeping the Gospel ever-before our eyes, connecting every gathering and ministry to the "good news" of salvation that Christ has accomplished for his people by his life, death, and resurrection.

We take seriously his command to proclaim the Gospel and make disciples of all nations. As a church we strive to make fully devoted disciples of Jesus who believe the Gospel, belong to God, and are becoming like Jesus. We do this by living out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), starting right here in Tyler. 



THE PROCESS OF MISSIONS

When the Lord commanded his disciples to "make disciples," he meant it. We have been drawn to Christ by the Gospel, so now we draw others to Christ with the Gospel. Our lead pastor likes to say, "from the world to the cross, from the cross to the world." Disciples of Christ are called to make more disciples of Christ. We make disciples by GOING, by BAPTIZING and by TEACHING.    Jesus 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” (Matthew 28:18-20). This authoritative commission is our all-consuming ambition.
