Vision 2009

At CrossWay yesterday we launched the new year with a focus on our mission and vision.  Our mission is to make lifelong followers of Jesus Christ throughout our community and around the world.  The vision is a snapshot of what it would look like for that to happen, and that’s what we talked about.

In the Bible, Acts 2:42-47 offers a picture of a vision being fulfilled.  Since our mission today is the same as the early church’s, we have a lot to learn from them.  We can stay focused on our mission and realize the vision by all of our members making five commitments:

(1) We will love God by worshiping Him together with His family.

(2) We will love God by developing intimacy with Him through healthy spiritual habits.

(3) We will love people by serving them.

(4) We will love people by building friendships with them.

(5) We will love God and love people by inviting them to participate in the first four commitments–that is, we will invite them to encounter Jesus for themselves.

I look forward to seeing what God does through CrossWay Church this year!
