Vision & Values

Mission Statement:

"To know Christ and make Him known"

- Then Jesus came to them and 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

- 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 4:12-13

Vision Statement:

Encounter God
We believe that God wants to interact with us, and we encounter Him through Scripture, Prayer and
Worship.

Embrace Community
We believe that belonging and becoming happens best within the context of community. The essence of
community is sharing life together.

Experience Service
We believe that we all have a part to play in being the hands and feet of Christ to a world in need. We
humble ourselves and exalt God by serving others in His name.

Engage Culture
We believe God wants us to share His story with those around us. We seek to introduce people to God in
ways that capture their attention and inspire them to seek God for themselves. We encourage everyone at
the Grace Pointe to build bridges between God and people.

Values:
The Church of the Nazarene is a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, tracing its
roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the message of scriptural holiness
(Christlike living) across the lands. Today the Church of the Nazarene is located in 151 world areas.
The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers to everyone
forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by
entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take
this message to people everywhere.
The Church of the Nazarene is also a holiness church. We believe that Christians can experience a deeper
level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God,
all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
