I always say I’m not big on vision or mission statements. But maybe I am, even though I don’t officially know the difference between a vision statement and a mission statement. When I served at the Mason UMC I felt like God gave me a mission statement for the church there. We were to offer the hope of Jesus. I see the mission statement of our church as the purpose of our church. I’ve been waiting for a year here thinking and praying.
I believe God has given me the mission of our church:
Our church exists so that people may
*Grow in Jesus
*Help others do the same
It sounds pretty simple really. I think it’s just another way to say that we exist to make and mentor Jesus followers equipping them to make and mentor other Jesus followers.
