We frame the Great Commission in light of Jesus’ promises just prior to His Ascension:
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
Our mission field refers to physical places, but also constituencies:
By “Here” we mean embracing those people who walk through our doors in search of spiritual meaning, particularly focused on our discipling and shepherding efforts
By “There” we mean our larger immediate circle, including our local community and North Georgia. We strive to show love and compassion through our Service and Caring ministries (NFCC, Disaster Relief, Nursing Homes, Celebrate Recovery, etc.). Our congregants will have a bias to be invitational to individuals and to our broader local community
By “Everywhere” we mean outside of our North Georgia region, to a national and international circle (Global Missions, Denominational Work, etc.)
We will continually seek God’s Will as we determine how and where we use the resources He has provided to us.
