The Great Commission
The Great Commission
To LOVE, REACH and DISCIPLE people locally and globally to fall in love with JESUS, discover their GIFTS and fulfill their God given PURPOSE.
To be defined by and live out the value of being FAMILY together.
To create an atmosphere of AUTHENTIC WORSHIP and worshipers that allows the SPIRIT to move. We worship God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH.
To TRAIN and develop LEADERS through small groups, discipleship training and the School of Ministry (SOM).
To expand through MULTI-SITE campuses, especially going into the small rural towns about 30-45 minutes west of Katy as well as raising up leaders to GO in to all the WORLD to reach and disciple the NATIONS.
God has instructed us to love our neighbors as ourselves. We value developing loving relationships with one another and demonstrating the love of our Father God to the world around us.
We believe that the Bible is God's written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts. We value it as the authority in preaching, teaching, doctrine, church life, and everyday life.
We desire for all people to know, enjoy, and worship God, and we value a personal relationship with Jesus. This relationship comes only by our acceptance of His salvation through grace.
The ultimate purpose of all people is to know, enjoy, and worship God. Worship should be a lifestyle.
Prayer is the power plant of the church, and we value prayer and fasting as essential and top priorities. Prayer is the communication link between our church and God. We seek to discern God's will for every action by listening to God and praying together. Individual members and the Body as a whole also lift prayers to God. It is our desire that the Lord "teach us to pray".
We desire for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to operate in our church. We always desire to give the Holy Spirit freedom to move and speak to and through His people.
We value small groups of 5-15 people as a primary structure used for being the church. In small groups, members connect as family, Scripture is applied to life, and Believers are edified through the working of spiritual gifts. GoGroups equip Believers to become servant leaders.
We desire to worship God in celebration. The Church gathers together in a large group celebration to worship God in spirit and in truth, in decency and order, and with understanding. We value dynamic worship that is alive, intimate, fulfilling, and life-transforming. Unbelievers and the unlearned in spiritual matters who observe the worship should say of Celebration Worship in our church, Surely God is in this place.
Believers are to grow and mature into well-balanced followers (disciples, ministers, and servant leaders) of Christ. Discipleship is implemented through focused small groups or by a one-on-one mentoring relationship. Go101 is only the beginning of a life-long process of discipleship and learning to be more like Jesus.
We value reaching beyond racial and denominational barriers to demonstrate the power of Biblical unity.
We value raising up servant leaders who will serve Jesus and others with all their hearts. We desire to disciple and empower Believers to become effective leaders who will replicate what they have been given by discipling and empowering other Believers (II Timothy 2:2).
The Bible discourages debt and we value the responsible handling of our finances and the goal of being debt-free. We value the Biblical principles of tithing and of giving offerings to fund the work of the Lord.
The church offers great hope for the family, and we value building strong marriages, training for godly parenting, offering excellent ministry to children and youth, and limiting the number of activities that we offer that keep families from being together.
Children are the most eager disciples, and we value children's ministry, rather than childcare. Our church nurtures children in three areas. Children will learn about God in a Children's Church held during the Celebration Service. Secondly, they will learn about God through their contact with the GoGroups. Thirdly and most important, children learn about God through application of Bible truths within their family context by their Christian parents.
We believe teenagers are making important life decisions, and we value creating an exciting, fun, Christ-centered atmosphere for them to become adults. We desire to instill the same values in them as we have for the adults.
We value that every Believer is a minister. The pastoral team are called-out servants who are to equip individual Believers to minister through edifying (building up) one another and reaching out to the lost. Most ministry will be personal in nature and will naturally develop out from each Believer’s Circle who are contacted and loved. It is the responsibility of the church to help every member discover his ministry/ministries and to enable those ministries to be implemented. There is a balance between the outward journey of ministry in the world and inward journey of spiritual growth in Christ. Ministry never takes precedence over our spiritual relationship with Christ and His Body. (Ephesians 4:11-12; Mark 16:15-20; I Corinthians 14:26)
We believe the heart of our Father God is to seek and to save that which is lost. We value reaching into the community with the love of Jesus and seeking for others to know Jesus as Savior and Lord.
We want to reach the unreached people of the world, and we value giving, going, and praying in order to reach those who do not know the love of the Father. We desire to see men and women raised up to go into short-term and long-term missions. Since our mission, vision and values are based on the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19, 20), we seek to birth churches domestically and around the world (Acts 1:8).
