Our mission as a church has 3 parts:
We exist to
- CONNECT people to Jesus Christ,
- GROW them in Jesus Christ, and
- IMPACT the world for Jesus Christ.
Those three words (CONNECT, GROW, IMPACT) are the guiding forces behind everything we do here at LoamiCC. We think about them when we're planning our music or teaching our little ones. If we neglect any one of these things, we neglect a huge part of the God-glorifying work we've been given to do.
If we don't help people CONNECT to a faith in Jesus which leads to salvation and eternal life, then we have absolutely failed from the start. If we don't GROW believers in a practical and powerful understanding of God's Word, but instead let them wade forever in the kiddie pool of immaturity, then we have failed. If we do not lead our people to get out of their seats and live their faith in a manner that IMPACTS the world around them, then we have failed by creating spiritual couch potatoes who endlessly take in knowledge that will never be put to use.
We firmly believe that in order to fully live God's purpose in our church, we must CONNECT people to Jesus Christ, GROW them in Jesus Christ, and IMPACT the world for Jesus Christ. We refuse to leave out the Gospel message of Salvation. We refuse to create a culture where staying immature is oka. We refuse to sit around and do nothing, when God has placed us in the midst of those in need.
We invite you to join with us in our purpose. We don't merely want to be a once a week, hour-long meeting. We want LoamiCC to live it's purpose and be powerful movement for Jesus Christ!
