Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Elevation Vision & Mission

ElevationCommunityChurchAs we have continued to seek the Lord and ask Him what he wants for the church in Aurora, CO this is what we have come to see, feel, and hear.  This is the vision statement:

“Engaging the world to elevate the name of Jesus one life at a time”

That is the vision that we have that is the big picture that we feel as been laid out for us.  It is our way of communicating what that bible says is the mission for the church.  That Jesus has directed us to be as the church through out the New Testament.  The way that we see the church doing that is our mission statement:

“We will develop relational environments that enable people to be followers of Jesus.”

As we have walked through scripture and listened to what the Lord wants from his church we see that “relationships” are very important.  We see that this is what Jesus modeled, what he mentored, and what he left in the message of His word for us.  We need to be in a relationship with Jesus and others.  Which is what we read:

Mark 12:30-31 (NLT)
And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ [31] The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
Mark 12:30-31 (NLT) And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ [31] The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
It is our prayer that through Elevation Christian Church that we are going to lead people be followers of Christ that are going to lead people to be followers of Christ.  The same thing that Jesus showed us to do in the New Testament.
What I want to know is what are you doing to lead people to be followers of Jesus Christ?
