“To Glorify God by Reaching the Lost and Discipling the Found.”
• Upward Focus — Exalting God’s Glory — “To glorify God”
• Outward Focus — Extending God’s Kingdom — “by Reaching the Lost”
• Inward Focus — Equipping God’s People — “and Discipling the Found”
The Westminster Shorter Catechism, question #1 says “The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” God’s ultimate goal in His saving work with sinners is to bring glory to Himself. Therefore, the primary means by which we glorify God is by enjoying Him, by finding our deepest needs met in Him. God’s name is praised when we discover that our most lasting pleasures come from a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
God not only saves us FROM something, but He saves us FOR something! He saves us from our sins and spiritual separation from Him so that He can use us to impact the world for His sake. God has sovereignly chosen to accomplish His plan of seeing the gospel preached to the four corners of the earth by using human messengers, like you and me.
The only hope that the world has for true and genuine change is the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Paul says that the gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” This means that when the gospel is heard, known, and believed, God unleashes His power into a life and transforms it into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
As we grow in the grace of the gospel, God’s desire is to mature us so that we can reproduce ourselves in the lives of others. The culmination of the discipleship process is not only individual, spiritual maturity, but a multiplying effect in the church. As you are changed by God’s love, you want to share that change with other people.
“Our Vision is to be a Biblically-based, Christ-centered, Grace-oriented church that is growing spiritually in order to serve the Fishers, Noblesville, Geist and northeast Indianapolis communities. Our goal is to be a place where people can COME and receive the gospel of Jesus Christ, GROW in the knowledge of His grace, and GO make a difference for His kingdom. As we live out the gospel, we desire to support His kingdom through strategic church planting here in Indianapolis, the United States, and around the world.”
