OUR MISSION: Make disciples who make disciples.
At GVF we're all about making disciples of Jesus Christ. Not church attenders. Not church donors. Not church volunteers. Disciples. Men and women who are passionately living for Jesus and his kingdom. Disciples who are making more disciples of Jesus Christ.
So how do we aim to do that?
OUR STRATEGY: Engage. Connect. Serve. Go.
To accomplish our mission of making disciples who make disciples, we emphasize a four-part strategy for each person at GVF:
ENGAGE WITH GOD PERSONALLY
When we engage God personally, reading and reflecting on His Word, through prayer and times of worship, God's Gospel changes us from the inside out, making us more like Jesus.
CONNECT IN ACCOUNTABLE RELATIONSHIPS
Spending time with God alone is not enough. We need other people to encourage us, challenge us and hold us accountable, if we're going to be intentional about becoming more like Jesus.
SERVE AND BE SERVED AS THE CHURCH
Being part of the local church isn't a spectator sport. Serving with our gifts and allowing others to serve us builds the body of Christ so that we can be His hands and feet to the world.
GO ON MISSION
The mission of every believer is to go and make disciples. Whether that means going across the street to your neighbor, across your office to a co-worker, or across an ocean to another country, each of us is called to tell others about the good news of the Gospel.
