MISSION & VISION
 

 

Vision

“We exist to Know God and Make Him Known, Grow in Knowledge and Obedience, and to Go into the World around us with the Great News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Mission

The way we seek to live out this Vision (Identity) is by Reaching–Teaching–Investing–Growing–Producing.

Reach

“To Reach the World around us with the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
 
 

Intentional

We live our lives in such a way that people notice the difference.

The ministries of GFMC operate with intentionality.

Purposeful

Every day is a day and every life a way to proclaim the Greatness of God.

Each aspect of GFMC embodying our Vision and seeking to fulfill our Mission.

Directed

We know why we exist and live accordingly.

At GFMC, we exist to Know God and make Him Known, to Grow in knowledge and obedience, and to Go into the world around us proclaiming the greatness of God in our deeds and words.

 

Teach

“To faithfully teach the truths of God’s Word to those whom He has called us to reach.”

Discipleship is the mandate (command) of the Kingdom of God (Matt. 28:19).

One of the primary ways that we make disciples is through the teaching of the Word of God.

At GFMC, we take seriously the teaching of the Word of God as a Command of God and a vital aspect of the Kingdom of God as we seek to honor Him with our lives.

 

Invest

“To faithfully and purposefully invest what God has given us in our Time, Talent, and Treasure so that the Gospel spreads, the Church is strengthened, and God is honored in and through our lives.”

Time: The “Being” of Invest

Talent: The “Doing” of Invest

Treasure: The “Giving” of Invest

At GFMC, we seek to Invest our Time, Talent, and Treasure so that the Gospel is proclaimed to the world around us, the church is strengthened, and the Glory of God is revealed in and through our lives.

 

Grow

“To faithfully and purposefully Grow in Knowledge and Obedience both individually and together so that the Gospel spreads and the Church is strengthened and increases by God’s favor.”

Our desire is to purposefully grow in our knowledge (what we know about God) which then necessarily leads to a growth in our obedience (doing what He has commanded us to do).

Increased Knowledge leads to Increased Obedience which means that as we grow in our knowledge then we will also grow in our obedience to God in our Reaching–Teaching–Investing–Growing–Producing.

Growth is a continual, constant, and consistent action.

This is revealed in consistent engagement in Worship and Discipleship/Accountability, in the ministries of GFMC remaining focused on the Vision and Mission, and in how we (individually and as a church) consistently engage the world around us with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

At GFMC, we purposely seek to Grow in our Knowledge of God thereby deepening our Obedience to what He has called us to do therefore strengthening the Body of Christ and adding those who are being saved to the Kingdom of God.

 

Produce

All of this leads us to Producing Disciples.

This is our DNA and we produce, replicate, what has been produced IN us.

For GFMC, we purposefully make disciples in the world around us by Reaching, Teaching, Investing, and Growing so that the Gospel spreads and God is honored in and through our lives.
