To describe the Missionary Church in one word, we are COMMITTED.
We are committed to Jesus Christ, the Bible, and the Great Commission.
All of us know groups who are no longer as committed to the authority of Jesus, but the Missionary Church recognizes Jesus Christ as the ultimate authority.
In a day when the Word of God is often watered down or abandoned altogether, we remain fully committed to the inerrancy of Scripture and the authority of the Word of God.
We are committed to the Great Commission: multiplying disciples who multiply disciples who multiply disciples. That is the command that Jesus gave us, and we will not be distracted by buildings, programs, or anything else.
Organizationally, we are a denomination, but we really see ourselves as a family of churches. As a family we realize that we have a unique identity. Others may share in one or more of our traits, but we believe the combination of the following five traits expresses this unique identity of the Missionary Church.
We identify, develop, and release leaders.
We do not limit God in who he calls to leadership.
We are Leadership Empowering ,
This means we focus more on the mission than the institution. We share best practices with like-minded organizations and partner with them.
We also encourage and support your Kingdom endeavors.
We are Kingdom Minded ,
We encourage, facilitate and resource churches, rather than direct them. Our goal is to inspire and partner with one another to increase ministry effectiveness.
We are Relationally Connected ,
We are fiercely faithful to core biblical doctrines, to ensure that we stay theologically sound. We are not dogmatically exclusive.
We are Biblically Grounded ,
We are unique in the fact that we allow local churches freedom to minister effectively in their contexts. This is because we are a permission-giving culture, not a restricting one.
We are Creativity Embracing ,
