KNOW GOD, FIND FREEDOM, DISCOVER PURPOSE, & MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our vision is Life Starts, Love Happens, and Purpose is Revealed. Life starts through knowing God: Our experiences are to provide a way to add value, input, and direction providing relevant information to guide you through the seasons of life. We do this because it is Biblical and Heaven and Hell are Realities. We want to reach everyone of all ages through empowerment, welcome, and the beginning of their relationship with Jesus.
Love Happens: As we discover true love and the freedom Christ has for our lives. Our Small Group Environment where people can experience community, settle their yesterdays and take their next step in Christ and Freedom. We do this because it is Biblical, people need to be known, people need healing, and people need to grow. Small Groups are free market groups and interest based with three semesters each year consisting of 12 weeks in the Spring, 6 weeks in the Summer, and 12 weeks in the fall. The whole point is to get in a group seeking to grow larger by reaching smaller.
Purpose revealed to first discover why you’re here and use that purpose to make a difference. We create an easy process per people to discover their purpose and serve on a Dream Team. We do this because it is Biblical and people need to be needed. Growth track is a 4 week course we offer with the following goals to discover our vision, discover your purpose/design, working to develop/train you, and joining a team your passionate about while serving others.
Our mission is to allow Jesus to be the central to everything we do. We sing, pray, and preach in His powerful Name. Our past, present, and future is centered on Jesus. Our purpose on this earth is to make much of Jesus Christ.
Colossians 1:16-17 says (when speaking of Jesus), “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
We commit that our church is dedicated to loving this all-powerful,
all-loving God with everything we have, and we invite you to join us in this desire.
One of our goals at Encounter Church is to empower people to spread God's word and kindness. Each on of us has a part to play in spreading the Gospel and building the local church. We may not be able to save the world-but we can all reach one in our world.
You + One Mentality Outline:
- Who is your one? (Everyone needs someone to reach)
- Write their name down (They are the one you need to reach)
- Pray for them Daily
- Befriend them (Follow them on social media)
- Keep inviting them to church even if they decline
- Look to bless them (Coffee/Lunch/Birthday card)
Jesus left the masses to search for that one - our mission - each one…reach one.
