OUR MISSION

“To meet people where they are and help them become fully devoted followers of Christ.”

“To meet people where they are and help them become fully devoted followers of Christ.”

We believe that in order to acheive our mission, people need to be involved in four particular environments:

We believe that in order to acheive our mission, people need to be involved in four particular environments:

1. Closets

Jesus used this as picture for spending time alone with God, which is necessary for close fellowship with God and spiritual growth. We will encourage and equip the people of True Life to spend time with God in prayer, Bible study, and the practice of other spiritual disciplines.

2. Rows

Rows are a picture of corporate worship gatherings. Hebrews 10:25 tells believers to not forsake the assembling of themselves together. In regard to rows, we will seek to:

  • Focus on lifting up Jesus and the gospel of grace. We will preach repentance both from rebellion and religious self-righteousness so that the lost can be converted and believers be built up in their faith.
  • Be a place where people genuinely connect with God in dynamic corporate worship.
  • Have high-quality children’s and youth ministries and be a place that helps people prepare for marriage, have godly marriages, and equips them to raise children who have a heart for Jesus.
  • Pay off our debt as quickly as possible and expand our facilities in the future in order to be able to more effectively minister to more people.

3. Circles

Circles are a picture of small groups, and it is our philosophy of ministry that we are a church of small groups. Small groups are environments where people love each other and experience life together, grow spiritually through study and prayer, support and challenge one another, and reach out and minister together. The groups will multiply through evangelism, intentionally developing leaders, and birthing new groups.

4. Streets

This word pictures Jesus’ mission that He gave the church of making disciples of all the nations. We believe every church should be a “glocal” church, which means that it is attempting to reach its local community and ministering internationally at the same time. We will do this by:

  • Equipping and encouraging the members of True Life to share Jesus with people during the course of their daily lives and through the outreaches of this church.
  • Being a place where the hurting and struggling can find love, acceptance, guidance, forgiveness, hope and restoration.
  • Sending groups out on mission trips every year and sending ministers out all over the world as God calls people out.
  • Continuing to plant churches in our local area (currently we are the mother church for International Fellowship, New Creation Community Outreach Church, and Children of Christ Church); sending people out to plant churches in other parts of our country as God opens doors; planting churches in Honduras, working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Honduras, supporting the Training Centers in Honduras that are expanding to other countries, and other ministries in Honduras through the ministry of MEPI; sponsoring the training of pastors in Uganda with an openness to serve in other parts of the world as God leads; and training and assisting other church plants and church planters.
