Mission and Vision
The mission of our church defines why we exist. It is biblical and simple. We exist to make disciples who love Jesus and love others.
Jesus created his church for a purpose. This purpose was given to us in the great commission and the great commandment. We follow great commission and fulfill the great commandment.
The Great Commission is found in Matthew 28:19-20: “Go into the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you…”
Great Commandment can be found in Matthew 22:37,39: “…Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind… 39You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
As we fulfill our mission, we want to create a healthy culture. The values we hold as a church help us create a healthy culture and communicate how we strive to live.
Know Christ (Philippians 3:10)
God created us to know him and glorify him with our lives. It doesn’t matter what we do if we aren’t doing it as an outflow of our relationship with Christ. It is through this relationship that we will live a fulfilling life and bless those around us.
Speak Biblical Truth in Love (Ephesians 4:12)
God cares about what we believe and how we behave, because we obey what we truly believe. God’s Truth is not intended to simply impart information but bring life transformation as we surrender to it. We see truth as an opportunity to serve others. Therefore, we open our Bibles to learn and open our hearts to love. To be right in the wrong way is to still be wrong.
Care for Every soul (1 Corinthians 9:22)
It is not easy to walk into a church for the first time and start a faith journey. Therefore, we want to do our best to meet people where they are, love them as Jesus would love them, and help them take their next step with the Lord.
Be Devoted to one another (Romans 12:10)
The beauty of the early church was found in their dedication to the Lord and to each other. Everyone needs a meaningful and healthy community in which to belong. There should be no better community than God’s community of people living out his purpose in their lives.
Impact the world (Acts 1:8)
We exist to give ourselves away for the glory of God to the benefit of others. Jesus sent his church to live on mission to the ends of the earth to share the love of God and his Gospel that sets us free. We can’t make a difference everywhere, but we do want to make a difference somewhere. So, we begin by doing for one what we wish we could do for everyone.
Our Vision helps explain where we want to go. Our vision is to see healthy disciples and healthy churches flourishing in every Utah town. We desire to fulfill our mission by providing opportunities to disciple people of all ages.
Rather than be mega church, we want to be a multiplying church. We see a building as a tool to be used for God’s glory. Our dream for the near future is to build a facility that can accommodate up to 400 people. This will help us better equip disciples of all ages and multiply churches throughout the state.
In order to better equip ministry workers, we are planning to launch a fully accredited seminary that will operate right here in Lehi. This is still in the works, but stay tuned for more details as this comes together.
Lastly, our vision includes continually expanding both our local and global mission opportunities. In addition to the various ministries we support throughout the year, we also began a platform called Advance Utah which focuses on training ministry leaders and supporting Utah ministry. The goals of Advance Utah are to revitalize and plant new churches, support current missionaries in the Utah field, and generate excitement for future ministry leaders to help us spread the Gospel to every Utah town.
