God has called us to be part of something bigger than ourselves…His story.
The mission of Mill City Church is simple: We exist to reach people with the life-giving message of the Gospel, so they might become wholehearted followers of Jesus and join God in the renewal of all things.
This statement is derived from the words of Jesus to His disciples known as the Great Commission.
“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation’.” Mark 16:15
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
We look to fulfill our part in God’s mission by embracing the following vision statements.
God created a perfect world, which was quickly infected with sin and evil when humanity rebelled against Him. God loved His creation too much to leave it alone, so He initiated a rescue plan to redeem and restore all things. This plan culminated in the life, death, burial and resurrection of His son, Jesus. We desire to join God in His redemption story, so…
we want everyone to KNOW GOD .
When we place our faith and trust in Jesus we experience new life, but this is not the end, it is actually the beginning. God wants to see us become mature, wholehearted followers of Jesus, submitted to His rule in all areas of our lives. This process of making Jesus center involves settling the issues of the past and stepping into a new way of living. Because we desire to fully be who God has designed us to be…
we want everyone to LIVE IN FREEDOM.
Everyone has been created uniquely by God and given gifts to be used for God. He has a place for everyone where their unique abilities and passions can touch the lives of others. We believe that our lives will be incomplete until we discover, develop, and fulfill that purpose, so…
we want everyone to DISCOVER THEIR PURPOSE.
We don’t just get together as a church to feed our self-interests and personal desires. God has written, and continues to write, a cosmic, timeless story of rescue and redemption so we seek to find our place in God’s story, look outward, and participate in His work. This is done both within the church and in our daily lives, so…
we want everyone to MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
