"Live your passion, tell His story, change your world!"

 

 

 

Vision Statement

This vision statement is both the God inspired dream and direction for this church body and leadership.

 

“We see the Manns Choice Church of God as a healthy, growing, vibrant, Christ centered, Spirit filled community that impacts people of all ages in our area through biblical truth, cultural relevance, practical service and evangelistic outreach.”

 

Core Commitments

The core commitments are the practical applications of the vision.

 

We are committed to:

  • Pursue the Power and Presence of God through Worship and Prayer

  • Our faith and love towards God must lead us to recognize His presence with us, to talk with Him and to listen to Him. We experience this through a commitment to prayer & worship. We express our thanks, our faith, our love and our hopes to God in prayer and through praise. As we do this we will receive from Him answers, assurance, guidance, peace, strength, power and a revelation of who He is and what He wants to do in us.

     

    Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

     

  • Disciple Disciplers
  •  

    In the last words of Jesus, found in the Great Commission, were clear directives for the church today; “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations… teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” Matthew 28:19-20. We must make disciples by teaching others what Jesus taught, lived and commanded. Disciples produce disciples.

     

  • Build Community through smaller groups (classes, activity groups, bible studies, support groups).
  •  

    Following the model of Jesus and the early church that began on the day of Pentecost, we see the value of small groups to the overall connectivity, support and health of the church body.

     

  • Preach, Teach and Defend the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  •  

  • Increase our impact through training, learning and God inspired revelation.
  • We want to be a church that is true to the Holy Scriptures, faithful to the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and one that is living in obedience to the Great Commission given to us by Jesus himself, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen” Matthew 28:19-20.

     

    We understand that we have a biblical mandate to teach, learn and proclaim God’s Word. In Matthew 4:4, Jesus declares “… It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' We believe that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” 2 Timothy 3:16. Our goal is to know, teach and defend the truth because the truth will make us free according to John 8:32.

     

  • Reach, Love & Serve our community through hospitality, evangelism and a sincere commitment to Jesus Christ.
  •  

    Because of our love for God and humanity, our desire is to show that love through our witness and actions inside and outside of our faith community.

     

    Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. ’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Mathew 22:37-40.

     

    Mark 9:35 “…If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”
