Our Mission in Santa Rosa
To honor God by creating balanced, life-giving environments that Inspire Transformed Lives.
PEOPLE WITH A PURPOSE:
Purpose answers the questions Why are we here? What are we called to do? Our primary purposes are:
• Exalting the Lord. This means putting Him first in our lives and celebrating our love for Him together in Scriptural ways. Since we each exist to worship Him (Ephesians 3:21, Revelation 4:8-11), joyful praise and whole-hearted worship are at the heart of our purpose as a church.
• Empowering Believers. If the church is to impact the world, believers must be continually changed from their former patterns of life to new lives that please Him. The church is a place where people are empowered, inspired and trained to live in the newness of the Christian life (Ephesians 4:7-17).
• Extending the Kingdom of God. Apart from Christ, people are lost in the darkness of sin. They need the clear light of the
Gospel message and the saving, healing and delivering love of God. The church exists to bring this Good News to people everywhere (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:47-48, John 20:21, Acts 1:8)
"All we, like sheep, have wandered away from our Good Shepherd; we have each acted selfishly on the basis of 'convenient morals' of our own choosing at times, and the Lord God has transferred to Him (the foretold One) these moral failures and these destructive acts...He (the Foretold One) deliberately accepted responsibility and the just consequences for our moral crimes, both large and small, and He appealed to God on our behalf." (Isaiah 53.6,12b expanded paraphrase)
