"We want to build a place to worship God- something significant for our families- something for the next generation!"
-Pastor Joe speaking about New Chapel
The concept of vision for New Chapel has three parts: Mission, purpose, and focus. Mission gives us purpose. Purpose lends focus. Focus makes us effective. That's the goal.
1. OUR MISSION:
"Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation..." Mark 16:15
“…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…” Matthew 28:19-20
We believe the Church does not need “a mission,” rather “The Mission” needs a church. Therefore: Our mission is to fulfill “The Great Commission."
2. OUR PURPOSE:
We're for people to connect to God and be raised to new life in Christ.
3. OUR FOCUS:
While “The Great Commission” is echoed in the Gospels and Epistles in different ways, it always includes four primary elements.
We like how it says it in Colossians 1…
“So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. 29 That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.
