Our vision is to become a Christ-exalting church that obeys the great commission.
We will achieve our Christ-exalting vision by creating and implementing an Act 1:8 strategy.
Our Acts 1:8 Strategy
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Our Acts 1:8 strategy is based upon this verse. We asked ourselves, "Where is our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and ends of the earth?" We concluded that our Jerusalem was the Ocala National Forest; our Judea was the state of Florida; our Samaria is the United States, and the ends of the earth is anything outside the USA. Based off this contextualization, we adopted mission partners and organizations that we felt would help us better be wittnesses and make disciples in the various regions listed above.
