Our Vision

We envision a people enthralled with the glory of Christ who are being transformed into the image of Christ (1 Peter 2:9-10).


Our Mission

Glory of Christ Fellowship exists to make disciples of all nations by living lives of worship, walking together in community, and engaging in the mission of Christ that we may grow to full maturity for the glory of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 12:28-34; Colossians 1:28).


Our Values

We primarily value the glory of God in Christ which we express by living lives characterized by worship, community, and mission.


Worship

To make disciples for the glory of Christ, we seek to live lives of praise and obedience before God. When the glory of Christ is exalted in our eyes, the praise of Christ will be found in our lives. Therefore, we freely and gladly sing to his name and submit to his will and ways.


Community

To make disciples for the glory of Christ, we seek to pursue Christian community. Jesus commanded us to love one another as he loved us, and then the apostles expanded on this command by providing us with a host of “one another” commands. For example, they teach us to encourage one another, to forgive one another, to teach and admonish one another, and to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ (John 13:34-35; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:21). Therefore, we seek to express and grow in love for Christ by learning to love one another with the love of Christ.


Mission

To make disciples for the glory or Christ, we seek to share the love of Christ locally and globally, baptizing new believers in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore, we always seek to grow in our passion and skill for personal evangelism, mercy ministry, and global missions.


Our Beliefs

At Glory of Christ, we have two documents that express much of what we believe about Jesus Christ and His purposes in the world. The first one is entitled the Membership  Affirmation of Faith, and it is relatively short and simple. We require all members of the church to agree with the teachings outlined in this document and to support them in word and deed. The second document is entitled the Elder Affirmation of Faith, and it is long and more theologically complex. While we encourage the members and attenders of Glory of Christ to know and ponder the teachings outlined in this document, we do not require them to agree with everything that is there. Rather, this document helps provide clarity and unity among the elders, deacons, and other leaders of the church so that we can lead God's people well for the glory of Christ, the good of the church, and the spread of the gospel in the world. In the end, our ultimate "Statement of Faith" is the Bible itself and all other documents are always subject to revision in light of the Bible, for the Word of God alone is inerrant, infallible, and sufficient for life and doctrine.
