Statesboro transformed by Jesus
Personal Conversion. Individuals and families reconciled
to God in heart and life- growing in love for Jesus- over and against the idols of our day, especially consumerism, individualism, and politics.
Societal Restoration. A community pursuing the perfect will
of God for the city/culture, particularly in bringing about justice, healing, and beauty.
Global Engagement. A people blessed by God always
seeks to bless others. In our community, that would look like planting churches in surrounding towns and sending missionaries (college students, medical staff, and others) around the country and the world.
To know Jesus and to make Him known
Scripture. The authoritative revelation of Jesus of the Old
and New Testaments.
Sacraments. Shorthand for the gifts of the church historic;
especially Baptism and the Lord’s SupperSacrament.
Spirit. an empowered congregation faithfully blessing
their community through evangelism and service.
All this, Sustainably. We long to know Jesus and to make him known, not just now, but well into the future. Thus we pursue relational and financial stability as a church
The kind of church we strive to be
Centered. Centered on Christ (through Scripture,
Sacrament, and Spirit).
Missional. Driven to extend the love of God to the world
by the power of the Spirit.
Ancient. Rooted in the wisdom of the church through the
ages (Liturgy, hymns, church calendar, etc.).
Local. Rooted in the geography, history, and culture of the
Boro. (contemporary instrumentation, accessible worship, practical preaching, etc.)
Incarnate. A fully-human faith, existing not in brain alone,
nor in heart alone, but in all of our lives (reflected in our worship, our small groups, our mission, etc.)
Hospitable. Sharing our lives with each other and the
world, particularly with those we disagree with.
