Our Mission: We’re On A Mission From God
We = At Agape we believe that God exists as community. In Genesis 1:27 God said, “Let us make humans in our image…” God is we/us. Therefore we are not created to be individuals but for community.
Are = We live in the present, not the past. We also look to the future, not the past. However, we believe that the time is now for us to act. We believe that the Kingdom of God is a present reality and we are called each day to be active with Jesus’ mission. “Now is the time of God’s favor, now is the time of salvation…” (2 Corinthians 6:2)
On a Mission = Agape Church of Christ has a mission and purpose. In Luke 24 Jesus sent the Apostles out to preach repentance and forgiveness of sins… We believe that Jesus has called us to be busy with this mission. While many churches are focused on “keeping the saved saved” we are focused on bringing Jesus to all people.
From God = We believe that our mission is divine. This is not our plan, our mission, and our Gospel. God is the author and Jesus is the one who sends us out. Therefore, all that we do requires prayer, Bible reflection, and consensus from God’s people.
