Mission & Purpose

Our Mission:  
Helping people find and follow Jesus.
Our Purposes:
CONNECT – to God and each other
GROW – in a deepening relationship with Jesus
SERVE – by demonstrating God’s love in tangible ways
GO – by encouraging people towards Jesus in our personal sphere of influence
Our goal is for everyone to connect, grow, serve, and go as followers of Jesus Christ.
CONNECT:  Here’s a truth we celebrate – The heart of God is to connect people to Himself and each other in significant relationship.  In fact, the essential message of the Bible is that Jesus came to help people find their way back to God.  It’s called Good News and we announce it gladly!  We gather every weekend and throughout the week for that purpose: to connect to God in an authentic, life-changing way and to enjoy growing friendships with one another.  You’ll find our gatherings to be genuine, warm and engaging.  If you are a Christ follower or just kicking the tires of Christianity you will be challenged to take God up His invitation to connect to Jesus and become more like Him.
GROW:  The heart of Suncrest Family Worship Center is spiritual transformation. Jesus was clear about the missional commitment of the church, “Go and make disciples of all nations.”  Discipleship has little to do with being a spectator and everything to do with authentic life change produced by God in the process of following Jesus.  We bring our lives to Him (the good, the bad and the ugly) and He does the heavy lifting to produce Christ-likeness in us.  And that’s the goal, to grow and become all that God has called us to be.  Every week our Growth Groups meet all over the community to study, pray and share life together and find tangible ways to serve our community.
SERVE: Jesus made the point that the greatest of all shall be a servant. In other words, a life of significance involves making a difference by serving others in love. We couldn’t agree more! We celebrate that God has gifted each of us uniquely, and we gladly charge everyone to use those gifts and talents to help build up and encourage others.  God has a role for everyone, and you’ll be encouraged and equipped to join a ministry team that’s actively involved in serving our community in redemptive ways.
GO: The church is not a building or a program.  The church is a community of Christ followers who transform culture by serving and practically demonstrating the love of God to our family, neighbors, community, country, and to this hurting world.  We’re committed to helping people find Christ on their course of discovery and making Jesus known to the world through our words, actions and service to others.  With eternity before us, we recognize every conversation counts and God has a role for each one of us to encourage people towards Jesus in our personal sphere of influence.
WORSHIP: Here’s the big push – Under the banner of it all, we exist to worship and love God with our lives.  When Jesus was asked the loaded question of what’s the most important thing for people to pursue, it was a no-brainer – “love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.”  Jesus said the great focus, which brings everything else into focus, should be a life centered on loving God, honoring God, enjoying God, and making much of God in everyday life!  Worship is so much more than a song we sing, it’s a lifestyle of celebrating and appreciating God for His active love towards us.  And that’s the primary, everyday pursuit of our lives.
